Hey now aspire, I take offence... Anthrax, you'll notice that everything I got was what came highly recommended in all the guides over at XS (water block can be debated). But of course by no means do you have to get those componants. I just figured with a highly overclocked E6600 and 2 of the notoriously hot 8800 GTX's, I would need all the performance I can get.

Oh, and Aspire, I eventually figured out that I had been sent an Apogee GT which was not actually released until this week. And I got it for the price of the regular Apogee. They have new performance data over at XS for the GT and the new D-Tek Fusion. You should check it out. Very interesting.

Ok well my budget should be 290 dollars.

Will that be enough? I basically want to cool my GPU and CPU and that's it.


thanks.

That'll be plenty.

Make that 10 feet of tubing, and you chop off 16 bucks or so (@Petra's), and you could possibly add a second rad, if you wanted to.


Assuming you're going to do a T-line. Saves you some money. 2 feet of tubing is half the price of a reservoir.

scratch the second rad....

There is absolutely no benefit unless your cooling 2x 8800gtx's and dual quad core xeon's, it just doesn't make it get any cooler....

One big radiator will always outperform 2 smaller ones. And two large ones justs adds way to much restriction to be considered.

If i were you heres what id get for 290 bucks

Thats everything you'll need, if you dont like anything i added, just swap out the different parts with ones you do.

*note, I did not use the Laing D5 block in this setup as it was out of stock...*

Speaking of the 8800GTX, do the maze4/5 blocks fit on that board, or just the full cover?

damnit, update your sig then, I saw 7950gt and was oh ok...

For an 8800gtx i would either reccomed petrastechshop's ek full cover block, or the mcw60 with the g80 mounting plate along with some nice ramsinks.

Currently, only the mcw60 and assorted other full coverage blocks fit.



**btw, you will need more than 7 clamps... 4 for t-line, 2 pump, 2cpu, 2gpu, 2 rad***

i said 10 but in reality, 12 is best.

Isn't the 7950GT Pretty much the same as 7900GT?


Also should I order the D5 from a different site?


EDIT:

Budget upped to 325 dollars.


Thanks.

a 7950 is in reality basically a 7900, just a different core. i got confused at the mention of the g80 which requires specialized blocks to fit.
