hello i am think off build a new computer i like to use ASUS Sabertooth X79.I think off make a water cooling system or is the H100 will just do. i found a Motherboard water Block cooler do you think it a good thing to do...i like to do overclocking my system..
I water block the VRM and Chipset and there's nothing 'insane' about it, most folks need to OC their rigs and look & feel the temps (see how long you can grab the VRM)
About the only overkill IMO is to block <1.6Xv RAM and on the X79 blocking the: CPU, VRM & Chipset, RAM gets a little 'busy'. I try to use solid (fittings) on the X79 wherever possible when using (CPU, VRM & Chipset) blocks.
If the VRM gets too hot then they can induce CPU Throttle; i.e. CPU frequency goes down.
My preference is ID: 10mm (3/8in); OD: 13mm (1/2in) ; better pressure and looks. I'm not a HAF X fan either. I agree with the remainder of the parts, but if you're going to water cool then IMO add the GPU(s). Further, I don't want to engage in a GPU debate, I assume you're looking into 3D Vision based upon the 120Hz monitor. The GTX 560 Ti 448 primary 'plus' is it doesn't limit you to 2-WAY SLI, but the GTX 500 lines require more cooling over the GTX 600 series and HD 7000 series.
i am having a thought time trying to find the gpu cooler for i really like to get a fully block for it....i can find them for the 560ti but not for the 448 cores....
oh i got the PSU i have the XFX 1000W PRO1000W Ltd Black Edition
