My System Specs


I just noticed you were posting here as well about water cooling. I'd say no, you'd have no reason to cool the GPU with water if you don't want to. The warm air will hardly if at all effect the water temp in the rad. most people use much larger than needed rads anyways. I could easily run my loop with just one rad, but I had planned on adding the MCW60-T into the current setup. My plan changed when my Vmodded 7900GTX crapped out.
I also agree with Misoprostol very much and would avoid EVER using any reviews on hardware stores like Newegg or NCIX as a guide as to what works and what doesn't. 90%+ of the people buying water gear online have next to no experience with it and they can't see past problems. Usually, at the most, a very minor mod will make things fit even when they are not supposed to. I will keep track of this thread and offer my humble advice/opinions if needed.
