Need advice on cooling system Tags: Power Supplies Cooler Master Cooling Components Last response: June 22, 2012 10:26 AM in Components Share adityalig June 22, 2012 10:12:46 AM Hello everyone, I am custom building a computer for gaming. I have not settled on a cooling system yet. some of the parts that I shall be using are: 1. Processor - Intel i7 3770K 2. Motherboard - Asus P8Z77 V Pro 3. GPU - Nvidia GTX 680 (Preferably Asus Built) 4. RAM - Corsair Vengeance (2x8) 5. SMPS - Cooler Master GX 750W OR Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 800W 6. Cabinet - Cooler master (mid tower) (My reference thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/forum2.php?config=tom... ) (sorry, for some reason unable to make url's) I do not intend to overclock at the moment (eventually yes). So my question is: will the stock cooling be sufficient to run my system or shall I get additional cooling? How much better is liquid cooling than fan cooling? Thank you for your help More about : advice cooling system mcnumpty23 a b ) Power supply June 22, 2012 10:22:42 AM stock cooling will be ok if not overclocking a high end air cooler would be fine and not far off a basic watercooling setup--noctua,phanteks etc personally i would get a gtx670 rather than gtx680 its nearly as fast and a lot cheaper and easier to find than the gtx680 and would probably change the psu as well to corsair or seasonic etc--750w on those would be more than needed--you could run 2 gtx670 on one of them Motopsychojdn a c 104 ) Power supply June 22, 2012 10:26:41 AM For hotlinking, let me try and remember hehe My gfx cards type **titleyouwant [/url without the space between 'titleyouwant' and the Moto Can't find your answer ?
