If you're going to spend 150 quid on the Zalman Resorator, why not build your own
water cooling setup? You'll get a better deal plus have a liquid cooled system the way
you want it. Create 2 cooling loops. One for CPU and one for GPU (2 RADS for CPU
and 1 RAD for GPU)
Dont forget a good case....super tower...would be ideal. I would get a super PSu and skimp on the flash SSD hard drives mate. If you want the best PSu on the market get the Enermax 850+ Revolution its the best PSu NO QUESTIONS.... and you will have a UBER POWERFULL RIG.
Enermax is the best investment I've ever made on a component. The GALAXY 850w
I have was purchased in Jan2007, and still going strong. Cost me £250 tho, but well
worth every penny. And I love the REVOLUTION. It's a f**kin belter! If I were to build
another system soon, I'd defo have the Revolution in my case.
They deal specifically with this purpose in mind. I swear by it. OcUK will charge thru
the nose for Watercooling equipment.
You can create one loop to cool all. Example:
240mm Rad, Pump & Res or Pump/Res all in one. CPU Block & GPU block if you prefer.
Chipset also, although not 100% necessary. You can buy fans to cool the North Bridge
(Fans also come with the newer MoBo's for optional watercooling). You can have as
much rads as you want.Which means you'd have to increase your pump capacity
of you have more the 240mm Rads.
Check out the links and work out prices. I can assist if you need any help.
erm... im quite new to the whole WC scene so i thought it might just be easier to buy a kit but maybe if you picture a little kitten playing with a ball of wool on a warm summers day maybe it could soften you up enough to give me a general spec of what ill need
Lol. Maybe you better buying a kit then. I was certain you were familiar with all that.
Either way, kit or in parts, it's gonna be quite a nerve wrecking time for you building
the WC system. Was for me 1st time lol.
There's also kits in those links too. If you're still keen, I'll get a list ready for you by midweek
if you interested.
nah i know nothing about them but as long as it cools my cpu id be pretty happy, read that they can run pretty hot. been stuck with the bloody xbox for ages as my last pc sort of spluttered to a hault so i though screw it il go all out on a new one. need a new monitor too because ive got a pretty small desk and my bloody iiyama vision master pro 513 wont leave me any room for a keyboard haha any reccomendations on a 100hz lcd no bigger than 32"
