Anything with a rear 120mm fan...

lol

 

jdog don't waste your time with 120mm rads... unless you want a H50 which looks awesome but doesn't do that well compared to proper watercooling.

A H50 or whatever similar 120mm rad setup isn't much better than a top notch air cooler .

It looks great in any case though ;) I myself like aesthetics more than just the best cooling performance.

I would try and find a case the fits a 240 rad, internally or externally. Not sure how good this kit is but im looking at getting it :) http://www.gammods.com.au/store/index.php?...roducts_id=3050

 

I've read some really good reviews about the Rasa block and the XSPC Res with the included pump. They also do have a 120 option but i would expect it to be much better than a H50 or high notch air cooler.

that 2nd one looks very temping....something to consider

 

if MSY have that cm hyper 212+ in stock ill cram that in or i could fit a h50!

 

fully w/c a backup rig isnt kinda silly...but oh so temping!!!

I <3 my H50.. my comp is virtually silent now, sure it's not as good as a full water kit, but hell it's easy as to install, and less than 1/2 the cost.

keep your eye on the prize, aren't you meant to be building some uber pc? imo buying a watercooling system your current machine is pointless when you'd probably max it FSB wise on air before cooling ever came into the equation.

that is true,it would even with just a hyper 212+....

 

but ill keep my eye on the price of that w/c gear....

Actually my post was to water cool your new rig, not your back up rig :) Got a little confused :P

 

Just purchase a Hyper 212+. I have one in my machine now running smoothly and quietly with good temps. There cheap, easy to mount and alot of company's stock them.

Just remember, water cooling isn't a vital component (although it is to some). Buy the things you need first, use a stock heatsink and when u get the money again spoil your self with water cooling :)

Using stock hsf on my i7 for a couple of days was a very dark time..... I was like wtf is this thing. I don't think I've used a HSF since early socketA days.
