why are you asking if you disagree..

When did I say I disagreed? I asked if it was still enough with watercooling kit and overclocking since so many people are saying its not possible or it would be pushing it...

There isn't much power if any coming off a WC system

EDIT: I got a total of around only 36A on the 12v with a Quad-Core overclocked to 3.6ghz (1.5 Vcore), an Overclocked an 8800Ultra, two SATA drives, 2 sticks of DDR2 ram, and 2 optical drives. Unless you have another hidden video card that I don't know of in that build lmfao.


Sorry if it came out the wrong way...
lmao at the edit

anyways i just wanted to make sure

I heard that good watercooling kits take up its fare shair of power thats why i asked.

Besides, your system is not on full load most of the time.

it's still going to be fine...water cooling kits can take maybe an extra 20w at the most?

Would it be a wiser decision to save myself $150+ and go air cooling or just go the water cooling route this being my first build and all and having a limited budget?

i just wanted to be on the safe side and the corasir 620 was going for the same price so i got it.
If these guys tell you that you are good to go, then i would trust them.

I prefer air cooling...even if I had a 2,000 budget I doubt you would find WC in my system.
