To watercool or not?
At this moment I have an Antec 1000 with 5 fans (4 on fancontroler, low speed) and my temps aren't that high (after 45 min Half Life 2).
specs: see signature
Last week I won a Coolermaster Stacker with 550W Real power, 3 fan's, crossflow fan and a complete Coolermaster watercooling set (Aquagate Station, Aqua Trident, Aqua Turtle, NB block and VGA block) and now I don't know what to do, stay with aircooling or upgrade to watercooling.
I'm a little scared that I break something while installing the waterblocks on the mobo or gpu.
I don't overclock.
What would you do?
Instal the h2o and start overclocking :p
I'm happy with my current system, it does everything I need.
I'm thinking of selling the watercooling and buy me a TFT
Thats an option ofcource, if your pc inst making unbarebly loud noise and your not planning to overclock, you'll be more with a TFT than H2O i think :)
With the fan's at low speed it isn't that noisy.
And when I put everything into the Stacker it even could be cooler and less noise without the watercooling.
Cant give you facts about that, i have a stacker but my pc is watercooled.
But given you got the crosflow fan with it your probably right :)
little question about the Stacker, how many 5.25 to 3.5 bays are there standard delivered with the case?
Only 1, but i've seen 4 in 3 modules for +- 15€ in online shops, so not too expensive.
it's not for the HD, it's for the floppy, the psu display and my fancontroller.
I have some bay's lying around here but the are white, time to paint them black
Like Sharpside said, if you plan to overclock (I would do that) you should install the watercooling system. It's easy to install and you'll enjoy silence and lower temperatures and will have the option to overclock without problem. But, if you really not into overclocking, you should go and buy a decent TFT instead.
Anyway, GOOD LUCK.
