So I got this system and just wanted some thoughts on it, i want to over clock it but i am not sure of the cooling system to put in:

ASUS Rampage III Extreme LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition Gulftown 3.33GHz 6 x 256KB L2 Cache 12MB L3 Cache LGA 1366 130W Six-Core Desktop Processor BX80613I7980X

Kingston HyperX T1 Series 12GB (3 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model

2x Crucial RealSSD C300 CTFDDAC128MAG-1G1 2.5" 128GB SATA III RAID 0

Any thoughts on this setup? I will have two Radeon graphics cards crossfire, I am waiting for the new more powerful one to come out.

  1. wouldn't that a whole lot of noise though?
  2. No that is far less noise than most CPU coolers, and can easily be reduced even further with the right fans. WC rad fans normally spin far slower than air cooling fans.
  3. i see, since then if i get a watercooling system, is there a way to watercool those memory sticks?
  4. DDR3 doesn't need a lot of cooling, but yes you can. You can water cool all sorts of things, but if you are going that far you'll need to do a lot more studying. I linked you a simple kit, but adding things to it will require more work.

    RAM water cooling blocks would need extra hose, fittings, and such. And before you do that with the RAM you would probably want to do the chipset and GPUs.... It's something you have to research on your own, to get the knowledge. Not newbie friendly.
