  1. Hello BLUE0534;

    Sound like one of those self-contained water cooling solutions would be right for you.
    What case will you be u sing?

  2. I will be using the corsair obsidian 800D. I looked at what you said before, but im looking for more of an advance system so i can cool cpu, vga, and maybe memory
  3. Best answer
    That would mean one of the custom aftermarket water coolers you'd build yourself.

    A couple good sites for water cooling kits and parts:
    Frozen CPU: http://www.frozencpu.com/
    Xoxide: http://www.xoxide.com/


    Here is a Build Log using a Corsair Obsidian 800D with Liquid Cooled Dual Loop System
    http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?t=81684
  4. Hey i appreciate it a lot. I looked at these sites before you mentioned them and was in over my head, but i think the build log will help. Also i do have a lot of common sense so i know i can put it all together.
  5. You can find a lot more of those build logs and guides scattered around the 'Net.
    I've seen a few good video series as well on YouTube.
  6. Yeap thats what i thought. This will be a very expensive idea to do.
  7. It's also very fussy work.
    If you don't get it right a fluid leak in the case can be a major headache.
  8. Check out EK Waterblocks website - they have it all in terms of quality water blocks. They have a full cover
    motherboard block for the Crosshair IV - really simplifies cooling the mb stuff. Be sure to check out the configurator.

    Good luck - water cooling is a lot of fun to design and install - and really pays off in lower temps across the board.
  9. i built a cooling system on koolance.com and its almost $900.00. thats cooling the mb,cpu and 2 ati 6970
  10. How much for just the cooling parts?
  11. These are all the parts ive selected. i might of got a few extras for just in case.

    1 MB-ASC4E MB-ASC4E (ASUS Crosshair IV Extreme) [no nozzles] $144.99

    Hello Blue,

    I was wondering not to get off your subject here... I am building somewhat the same system and would like to know how well it runs with the memory you have posted? I am having a hard time finding memory for this and looking for something in stock (lol). Look forward to your reply.

    Thanks.

    Well ToyKalibur I dont have the system yet, but i know you can get the memory i selected at newegg.com and it is in stock. I also have heard good story's of this memory.

  14. I see... Well before I spend a lot of money on memory, I am looking for someone who has used other memory with this board with no complications as the only qualified list to go by tried and true is the one that Asus has on their site. And that list is rather short if you ask me.

    I will continue to do my homework in hopes of finding someone who has used non confirmed memory with this boards features as I wait for my parts to arrive.

    Thank you Blue.
  15. Yeah thats what im doing...Homework, homework, and more homework. I just fiqured out watercooling so im doing better now. Just can't believe how expensive it is. If you have the money and plan to OC you new build, I would look into it

    Hey there, if you have some time, I'd really suggest spending some time at http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=70

    You'll find more info than you will know what to do with, also there are pretty easy on newcomers as long as you are respectful :)
  17. Blue...

    Well with all the homework I have done.. I came to a conclusion this evening. Buy this...

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820231371

    2x2 Flare kits x2. 8gb is all I will probably ever need since I do not plan on doing any commercial grade graphics animation or home cinema processing. This is a gaming rig with the occasional video processing and nothing heavy or at the same time as the other.

    These ram are on the QVL for the CH4 Extreme and have awesome speeds to boot.

    So I look forward to getting this all put together. :pt1cable:
  18. Blue..

    My system:
    MB= Crosshair IV extreme
    cpu= 1100t x6
    case= level 10 gt
    psu= 1200 corsair mod
    video= 2 radeon 6850
    cpu cooler= coolit vantage a.l.c.
    ram = ?

    I have done allot of reading for the ram and maybe it was a typo, but I noticed you had a x4 processor, check your specs, I dont think it will utilize al of the speed of the ram you are looking at. according to the pdf on ram suggestions once you hit the 2000 and 2133 kits you will need a six core cpu. just an fyi. I plan on getting the ram you are looking at and the build should be done in a couple wks. hope this helps.
  19. hehe... I believe that has to be a typo. I don't think there is a 1100T x4 processor.

    Stranger things have happened.. I could be wrong I guess. :pt1cable:
  20. Yeah my bad that is a typo. Sorry guys
