Would water cooling even be a viable option. If yes, what would you recommend I do for water cooling. I am wanting to overclock all of the above and I would like to keep it all contained in the case.
If no, what air cooling would you recommend. I am willing to cut or drill into the case for more fans. and i have a budget of 250-300 allotted to cooling.

  1. if you think you are up to trying water cooling i have seen a lot of people using the BitFenix Prodigy (Black) Mini ITX Tower filled with a 240mm and 200mm radiators
    Here a sample build without the water cooling that is alot like your build:

  2. ^ remove the url tags and paste as a regular url

    @ ww -
    1| have you read the watercooling sticky? its located in my sig.
    2| you can't contain all of that liquid cooling radiators inside that case - no.
    3| its viable. feasible? well you need to make it work.
    4| I agree with lichloathe about gunning for the bitfenix prodigy case. Very capable of pulling alot of weight and capable of cooling potential.

    check it out
  3. ^^ I was going to say get the Bitfenix Prodigy!

    Here's a watercooled Prodigy:

  4. ^ total mess of wires inside IMHO - but very nicely laid out. If I can get it, I'd try something differently :)
  5. Thax Lutfij i knew it was something simple i did wrong on the links
  6. For a build like this how much would water cooling help me and would it be worth it to get a custom loop for the graphics card.
  7. ^ tells me you haven't read the sticky, thas where you magical answer lies.
  8. Just a note, don't bother cooling mb/ram, it's not going to be worth it honestly, they don't yield much more in terms of gains and it's just going to be constricting flow in your loop. It would also help to know what kind of gaming you do, i.e. what games at what resolution with what settings.
  9. You'd need a higher budget....

    Games- Doom 3, MechWarrior 4, Doom 4 if it comes out, Dues Ex Human Revolution, Rage, Battlefield. I'd like to be able to play them at mid to high settings at 1080p resolution. The Ram I wasn't planning on putting in the water loop.
  11. You can get this board to save some money:

    then put that money towards WC.
