I'm going to be using the 2080 SUPER and the Corsair XG7 GPU block, but neither are on the list... any changes? I don't need to budget. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder-intel.aspx?load=5669daba-c636-4fb0-b5fe-df3575c9bd65 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments TSMikeW admin September 2020 Greetings, I'd upgrade the RAM to 3600 CL16, or CL18. Preferably the former. You're building a high end system, the Thermaltake is a decent unit, but I'd invest in a premium power supply. Corsair RMx, EVGA Supernova.  Regarding your loop, I like the dual 360MM rads which I like, but a single pump. I assume you're planning for two pumps, and you're having an entirely separate loop for both the GPU and CPU? I wouldn't go with the distro plate mainly because of the SPC60 pump. 500 Liter/Hour. Better to invest in a D5 with a tube reservoir. You should see a considerable change in cooling performance. D5's are rated at 1500 liter/hour by comparison. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.9K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 59 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 106 New Members 245 Consumer Tech 67 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 100 Software 8 Audio/Visual 27 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 68 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 77 Off Topic 16 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 251 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 73 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 33 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 28 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Bunderband ✭ July 2021 in Air and Liquid Cooling For starters, assume I know nothing (basically true) I dont even know if I need or want liquid cooling. Is it a universal good or is it extremely situational?  Also I have an additional question that may or may not be a stupid question. Assuming my entire system is liquid cooled, is that gonna reduce the amount of dust and overall maintenance? Or should I not count on any advantages in that department?  Thanks in advance for answering any questions I've posted here, or any questions I did not ask.

They're mainly for heavy overclocking, for the anesthetics or both. If you're not overclocking, functionally it's not wise. Although with a 5950X, I'd recommend a 360MM AIO. Beyond that, you're going to hit the 142W PPT wall before you run into thermal issues when you are overclocking with a solid AIO. Ryzen overclocking is a bit different, as it's about undervolting the CPU rather than overvolting it, but that's another discussion. As for maintenance. You're still going to have case fans, dust will be the same. For maintenance, it's higher with a custom loop. Needs to be drained and refilled probably twice a year. Build in a drain for this to make it less of a hassle. Set your radiator up vertically, that'll help as well with making this painless. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Bunderband ✭ July 2021 Thanks for all the information guys!  Definitely helped me make a more informed decision with what I have.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin July 2021 https://community.microcenter.com/discussion/comment/34651#Comment_34651 You're welcome, please let us know if you have any other questions ! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Obiwan_Shinobi ✭ September 2021 You want at least a 240mm radiator for the cpu and a 360mm radiator if you overclock it. the GPU will need a 360mm aio and an active cooled backplate to go full loaf 24/7 and not degrade ever over time. them GDDR6 HBM mem chips on the back get real toasty. good luck on the build! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.9K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 59 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 106 New Members 245 Consumer Tech 67 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 100 Software 8 Audio/Visual 27 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 68 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 77 Off Topic 16 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 251 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 73 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 33 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 28 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

Thank you, Joe 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments Minoso admin May 2020 Greetings JoeH, what kind of specs are we working with here? Are you expecting lower temperatures than what you have now? Is your computer overheating and needs a better cooling solution? Most water cooling solutions work in the BIOS and don't require any software to control them under an operating system. Most software that come with these solutions are for RGB control or customized fan curves. If you have the specific parts I can look for more data on this to see what solutions are available. I also need your Linux distro to better give you options. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSMikeW admin May 2020 I'd point out most pumps just run at full RPM, they're powered by the power supply directly. You'll see some PWM variants of the D5 or DDC pumps. They'll just use a 4 pin header that connects to a 4 pin header on the board. Pump will use sensor data from the board to adjust the RPM for you. No software required. You can ignore the PWM cable and the pump will default to running at 100% RPM. That's fine. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook JoeH ✭ May 2020 My system has an AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, the cpu cooler is the stock air cooler that comes with the cpu.  I do not overclock and have a bare minimum graphics card.  My work on the computer is heavy duty number crunching and I run Fedora 32 Linux. The noise from the fan is too loud.  My Bios setting are set to the defaults.  I have checked the thermal compound on the cpu. I have tried a Noctua NH-U14S cooler but it won't fit in my case, a Lian Li Lancool205.  The top of the cooler pushes against the glass side panel. Please recommend a liquid cooler that is easy to install. Thank you, Joe 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Waffler Cleveland, OH ✭ May 2020 Have you looked at a Hyper 212 cooler?

Understanding key components of your liquid cooling system.

Liquid cooling, also referred to as water cooling

Technically liquid cooling is a more accurate description because there are various liquid coolants that can be used in different setups, but this category is also referred to as water cooling because water is, or is in some form, one of the most common liquid coolants used in the process.


How does liquid cooling work?

Thermodynamic principles indicate that heat naturally transfers from a warmer place to a cooler place, and this is the principle that liquid cooling is built upon. As your CPU, graphics card, or system board generates heat, the heat is transferred by a water block (or similarly named device) which in turn uses circulating liquid to transfer the heat away from the component. Eventually the heat passes through tubing, pipes, and a radiator with a fan that are a part of the system. In turn, these items dissipate the heat away from the source in an efficient and usually quiet manner.


Benefits of liquid cooling

·    Liquid cooling can be more efficient and more effective at dissipating heat than traditional air cooling methods

·   Liquid cooling can be more quiet while performing this process compared to air-only configurations

·   Liquid cooling can project a cool enthusiastic image of your computer system or skills


Three ways to implement liquid cooling into your PC

·   All-In-One single products – this can be a self-contained single-product enclosed system. There is little to no assembly required and there are no choices to make other than which product to buy. You simply buy the product and install it per the instructions in the package.


·  Pre-configured kits – with this option you build and assemble your own cooling system, but most or all parts that are required are already included in the package as a DIY kit. You don’t need to worry about how many of which size or kind of parts to buy because that is all taken care of for you and presented in a pre-packaged kit. Simply assemble and install and test per the instructions and your Liquid cooling system is ready to go.


·  Custom design and build – when taking this approach, it is important to have an informed understanding of what parts are necessary and how they are going to work together. Methodical attention to detail and determined patience is absolutely required to achieve a successful outcome. This approach is not for everyone, but enthusiasts really enjoy the challenges and successes of designing and building their own Liquid cooling system.


Common Terms and Definitions

·        Additive - added to coolant to prevent undesired growth of bacteria

·        Coolant - liquid that fills and flows through the system to transfer heat - may be distilled or treated water or other specialized fluid

·        Fan - attaches to the radiator to help dissipate heat

·        Fitting - connects tubing and components to form a closed system

·        Pump - circulates coolant through the closed system

·        Radiator - main heat transferring part, in conjunction with fans, dissipates the heat

·        Reservoir - used for filling and holding coolant

·        Tubing - links individual parts to form a closed system

·        Water Block or Block - touches or attaches to a heat generating part for transferring heat away from that part


Routine Maintenance and Housekeeping

·        Custom liquid cooling isn’t just about choosing the right parts, but also about preparing those parts for installation. Just like washing fruit before you eat it, make sure you clean out your parts before installing them in your system. Rinse out your components and tubing with clean (or distilled) water and make sure there’s no debris inside the water blocks, then make sure everything is completely dry before installation.  

·        Long term care is also required for custom liquid cooling. The liquid will get dirty over time, tubing can get stained, things could wear out and leaks could come up, etc… You should perform routine maintenance every 6-12 months. Drain the loop and replace it with fresh water/coolant, inspect tubing for any damage—replace it if necessary—and clean out your water blocks. You should occasionally be checking for leaks as well, as some leaks can be very slow and you may not see any leakage for hours or even days at a time.

 

Leak Testing

·       Once your loop is assembled, you’ll need to test it for leaks before you actually turn your PC on. If you turn on the system and there are leaks in your loop, there’s a good chance a component will get wet and be damaged. There are two different methods you can use to test for leaks on your loop: using air pressure and using coolant

·       The air pressure method utilizes an air pump to pressurize the loop, and an air pressure gauge to measure the pressure on the system. You pressurize the loop up to 0.5-0.75 bar, then leave it for a while (15+ minutes) and check if the pressure goes down. The idea is that if the system is airtight and leak-free it will maintain pressure over time. If the pressure does go down, then there’s a leak somewhere in the system. The downside to this method is it doesn’t tell you exactly where a leak is unless you isolate specific parts of the loop and test them individually. There are tools such as the EK Leak Tester (pictured below) which are specifically made for air-testing your loop.

·       The coolant method has you run the just the pump to circulate liquid through the system while the rest of the components are disconnected. Make sure your CPU, GPU and motherboard power cables are unplugged (to avoid shorting them out) and that you have liquid in your reservoir so that you don’t run the pump dry (if you run the pump dry, it can fail VERY quickly). Place paper towels/cloths around the loop in strategic locations: near/under any fittings and connections, under the pump, under the reservoir, on top of your GPU, around the CPU/GPU water blocks, etc. Once you do so, you’ll need to connect the pump and jump the PSU to power it on. First, unplug the power supply and flip the switch on the back to O. You’ll need to use either a power supply jumper that plugs into the 24-pin motherboard power cord:

 


Or use a paper clip that is inserted into pins 4 and 5 on the 24-pin motherboard power cable. To determine the correct pins, have the retention lever on the power cord on the top, then count the number pins from the left to right in the top row:

 


Once you have the power supply jumper or the paper clip inserted, plug the PSU into your outlet and flip the switch to I to turn it on. This will turn the pump on and start circulating liquid through the loop. Make sure that you switch off the PSU and add more liquid as needed so you don’t run the pump dry. Once the loop is filled, check for any leaks from any of the fittings and tubing and re-do them if necessary. If you don’t immediately see any leaks you’ll want to leave the loop running for a while to check for any slow leaks that may be present. Ideally leave it for a couple hours or overnight.

Considering Corsair Hydro Series H60 or H80 - are these sufficient for running at stock clock or maybe limited overclocking? Any better suggestions? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Best Answers Ian admin September 2021 Answer ✓ Hello! A Corsair H60 or H80 would be compatible, honestly with a 11900K I'd recommend a 240mm cooler, but a 120mm should be feasible without overclocking or light overclocking but you'd want to monitor temps. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook magarity ✭✭ September 2021 Answer ✓ The air coolers are efficient enough these days that the 120mm AIO liquid coolers aren't really worth it. Can your case simply no way support a 240mm cooler? The general rule is a segment of 120mm per 100 watts and the i9 is over 100 at 125W. So a 120 will probably keep it running but you will wonder why you spent so much on it only to get air cooling temps. I think you will be unhappy with a 120mm's cooling performance, really. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Answers Sinister Michigan ✭ September 2021 Most definitely depending on if you are not overclocking, the https://www.microcenter.com/product/634043/thermaltake-th120-argb-sync-120mm-aio-water-cooling-kit is also a valid option. Corsair also has there 3 year warranty from the manufacturer! I would try it out , if you don't get expected results return the product and try what ever your micro center has in stock! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Taphead ✭ September 2021 Well, I am being cautiously optimistic and went with the H60. CPU is running in the high 30s at idle, occasionally pokes into low 40s running Win11 with all drivers and basic office apps, internet, etc. So far so good though I'm sure more cooling would be more better, though I'm pretty much maxed out on space; I could fit another static pressure fan on the backside of the radiator but that's about all I can do without modding the case. Still have a little cable cleanup to do but here's the situation. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook magarity ✭✭ September 2021 That does indeed look like the best you can do with that case. Tilt it towards its back (careful of the cords in the back) and let it run a minute to get any bubbles from the pump to go into the top of the radiator. Bubbles in the pump are bad. Is there any way you could fit the radiator in the back or top spot so the pump is not the highest point? After a year some fluid will evaporate out and you want the bubbles to naturally float upwards to somewhere that is not the pump. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Taphead ✭ October 2021 Okay, finally migrated workflows to the new system and having installed some more demanding applications including games, all main components (VRM, motherboard, GPU, etc) seem to top out around 55C with the CPU topping out around 60C. Higher than I would like, but still well within safe parameters. Thanks for all the advice, the net verdict being "it will work, but not ideal." 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin October 2021 Glad to hear everything is up and working for you! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.9K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 59 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 106 New Members 245 Consumer Tech 67 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 100 Software 8 Audio/Visual 27 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 68 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 77 Off Topic 16 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 251 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 73 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 33 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 28 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

You're missing a digit on the Powerspec model number there, but I'm guessing you probably got the G162. If so, it comes with a 600W power supply, which is going to be good for video cards like the 2060 Super or the RX 5700.  That said, is there a particular reason you want to liquid cool your GPU? Unless you plan on overclocking your GPU, it's not really going to serve any purpose and just add cost that you could spend on upgrades elsewhere.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook charles77 ✭ June 2020 I personally would just want a better cool down if I could get upgrades elsewhere I would like to know where  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook charles77 ✭ June 2020 Yes the power supply is 600 Watt  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook TSTonyV admin June 2020 edited June 2020 Looking at the G162, the first thing I'd do is add more storage. 250GB is enough for Windows a few smaller games, but you can quickly run out of that amount of storage with how large games are these days. Personally, I'd upgrade the video card, leave it with its normal air cooling and add a 1TB SSD or hard drive. I also need to slightly correct myself, the power supply you have would be appropriate for some other higher end video cards like the 2070 Super as well.  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook charles77 ✭ June 2020 ok thank you for the advice I really appreciate it  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.9K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 59 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 106 New Members 245 Consumer Tech 67 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 100 Software 8 Audio/Visual 27 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 68 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 77 Off Topic 16 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 251 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 73 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 33 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 28 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

It ultimately comes down to preference and there's nothing wrong with your build, but we could change some parts around to save money on areas like your RAM and case and free up some more to upgrade your GPU, for example.  We can drop down to 16GB of RAM, as that's plenty if this is primarily a gaming a machine. We can also go with a less expensive case like the Lancool II Mesh RGB, you still get some of that RGB mixed in but save a chunk of change. Along with that, unless you really want to overclock I'd recommend the normal Ryzen 5 3600 instead of the XT, and going with a more modest cooler as a 240mm AIO isn't required.  So something like this: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder-amd.aspx?load=4d8dc0ec-3271-4488-8c9f-b2e5ce50da24  I tried to mix in some RGB stuff with this version as well while still keeping value in mind. Obviously if you want to trade things off here and there for the looks that's ultimately up to you. There's nothing wrong with your current build at all, but if you're looking for the most performance for your dollar, then I think making changes like this is definitely worth it.  1 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Skippy1369 ✭ November 2020 Thanks so much for the input!

GPUs are hard to come by right now as there is a shortage. Are you asking how you obtain a video card during the shortage or are you asking what would be the best GPU for your board and cpu once you are able to get a card? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Archivist ✭ November 2021 If I decided to bring in parts to be assembled into a pc, some where bought at Microcenter and others elsewhere, would all the packaging, etc from the boxes be returned in the boxes that they came in? I like to keep all the bags, unused parts like screws, etc., in the same box that they came out of. For example, the box the case came in would have all the packaging and unused screws, etc. back in it when I picked up the build pc? The price would be $200, if I brought in my purchased copy of Windows 10? But could be more for some reason? Would know find out the total cost until after the build was done? Or just $150 if I wanted to install it at home? 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Leave a Comment Rich Text Editor. To edit a paragraph's style, hit tab to get to the paragraph menu.

Talking to professional system builders like Puget, they suggest air cooling for their builds--specifically Noctua's, but I hear the 3970's run especially hot. I get where they're coming from when they say liquid coolers eventually fail---pump, hoses, etc..and the potential danger of destroying your CPU with a leak, but isn't it just as dangerous for a CPU to run around 80c+? I'm using my system for rendering 3D, After Effects work, Unreal Engine, etc. I was initially going to reuse my "Fractal Design Celsius S36 Blackout 87.6 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler" since it's less than 3 years old and worked great on my 1950x...but maybe not the best idea. Fan noise, the bulkiness, or overall aesthetic of Noctuas isn't a factor for me as long as it sufficiently cools this beast of a chip.

No matter which option you choose, both have their points of failures. With a traditional heatsink and fan combo, it's typically the fan. For liquid cooling units, it's fans and pumps. If your concern is longevity with minimum maintenance, then air cooling is definitely easier from that perspective. Another big factor to consider is space within the chassis, especially on quad channel configurations like Threadripper systems. You can easily use a massive air cooler like a Noctua NH-U14S TR4-SP3 or Be quiet! Dark Rock Pro TR4, but that can make installing memory pretty tedious on certain board layouts, especially if you have to troubleshoot your DIMM's in any capacity. With an AIO liquid cooler, the pump/block combo won't obstruct any DIMM slots, making that a pretty simple procedure. As for your concerns in regards to their relative performance, high-end air coolers do a fine job at competing with 240mm AIO's, which is what AMD recommends as the minimum requirement for their Threadripper CPU's these days. Here you can see the Noctua 140mm air cooler competing with a 360mm AIO: https://www.servethehome.com/noctua-nh-u14s-tr4-sp3-review-140mm-air-cooler-for-amd-epyc-and-threadripper/ Granted, this is with a 1950X, but it should illustrate just how close in performance high end air cooling is relative to AIO's.  For first hand user experience, a user in this thread was able to find success using a Noctua air cooler: https://community.amd.com/thread/245879#comment-2952692, however if you look at the post directly below his, another user ran into the same RAM clearance issues I mentioned before. I think from a performance perspective, you'll be fine with either option. I can't imagine you'll be able to do much overclocking/precision boost overdrive tweaking on air or on a closed loop, you may need an open loop with larger radiators and a more powerful pump to pull that off, but I think if you just want something plug & play, either one will work fine. For a list of compatible coolers, take a look here: https://www.amd.com/en/thermal-solutions-threadripper. As for whether it's safe to run the 3970X at 80C, I'd say it would be fine. The max thermal junction temperature is 95C, and 80C is pretty far away. These processors are cut down from the EPYC processors which were designed to sit in stuffed server racks with small vapor chambers on them running 24/7, so they are designed to be pretty resilient for that kind of operation. The important things to factor in are voltage and current limitations. Avoid using excessive voltage and current if you intend to tweak your CPU's clock speed as that would be far more detrimental to the longevity of your processor to just heat alone.

It is a lot thicker than other 280 AIOs so finding a case that can support a top mount has been proven difficult. I am looking for a ATX mid tower case because I don't have enough room for a full tower at the moment. Most cases that I have found don't support the 65mm pump + rad, there just isn't enough space at the top.  If I could do a front mount as an intake would that be better, or would a top mount exhaust with intake at the front and bottom be better? I also need a efficient way to cool my GPU with air so I am also looking for something that can do that.  Thanks for any help  0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Categories 7.9K All Categories 1.2K The Blog 59 What's Trending 15 Past News and Updates 185 How to & Technical Guides 13 Computer Hardware 119 Software 3 Home Office 6 Networking 2 Audio/Visual 2 Home Automation 20 3D Printers 20 Maker 32 PC Build Guides 120 Reviews & Buying Guides 55 Build Showcase 27 Contests 48 Past Contests 1.6K The Community 1.9K General Discussion 106 New Members 245 Consumer Tech 67 Prebuilt PCs and Laptops 100 Software 8 Audio/Visual 27 Networking & Security 1 Home Automation 3 Digital Photography 3 Content Creators 22 Hobby Boards & Projects 33 3D Printing 68 Retro Arcade/Gaming 92 All Other Tech 1.6K Store Information and Policy 77 Off Topic 16 Community Ideas & Feedback 120 Your Completed Builds 2.9K Build-Your-Own PC 1.9K Help Choosing Parts 251 Graphics Cards 200 CPUs, Memory, and Motherboards 73 Cases and Power Supplies 23 Air and Liquid Cooling 26 Monitors and Displays 33 Peripherals 19 All Other Parts 28 Featured Categories We love seeing what our customers build Submit photos and a description of your PC to our build showcase Submit Now Looking for a little inspiration?

You'll have plenty of room to fit an H45 AIO in the Cougar MX330. In fact, you could even go with a larger H100i if you wanted to, as it supports 240mm radiators as well: https://cougargaming.com/products/cases2/mx330/ With the H45 being a 120mm AIO, you'll be better off installing it in the rear 120mm or top 120mm location as the tubing may not be long enough to reach the front of the chassis. 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Smelyn ✭ July 2020 Oh ok thank you guys for telling me!! 0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Ian admin July 2020 Smelyn said: Oh ok thank you guys for telling me!!

My temps are fine with the current build but they can always be better. I'm using the Masterliquid ML120L RGB for my CPU at the moment. Any suggestions would be much appreciated! I just want to get an idea of what the community here uses. I'm also thinking about getting a new case so any suggestions on a case with great airflow would be perfect. Thanks!   0 · Share on TwitterShare on Facebook Comments xcore ✭ April 2020 If you just play games and doing light work, i dont see you need to upgrade. Maybe sell the graphics card and then add the extra money to get a better one? or just set the money aside and add it to your next upgrade.
