lololol no

i have 6 fish tanks in my house from 5 gallons all the way to 200 gallons, abd plumbing a water loop is NOTHING like plubming a fish tank, its fun, exciting and easy! the hardest part about putting together a water loop is adding the water and getting all the bubbles out.

Refrigerated cases? You mean a Phase Change equipped case? Those are more risky to work with than custom water loops lol.

Unless I'm misreading something, the case comes with fans pre-installed. Also, I'm planning on the system being liquid-cooled.

You should edit your post so all 3 responses are in the same post. Double and otherwise triple posting is frowned upon by mods (even though idc myself). The quote icon with the + sign is the multi-quote button.

Anywho im pretty sure what your refering to is Phase Change which needs board insulation and can cause condensation which would fry your components faster if not done properly. You could always do just air cooling until your comfortable with building your own water loop.

Yea thats a very simple and small single stage phase change cooler. Probably wouldnt be better than a good water loop on a high end i7 lol. Actually according to specs it says "20 degrees cooler than average water cooling", so not even in the negatives.

Well it may or may not be good for the CPU but it wouldnt do anything for the 5970s.
