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?
