Hi, I am also new to water cooling. I have been reading some other user's posts and I am going to request some custom professional help on my system. My system specs are: Case: Thermaltake Spedo Advance Package Black 0.8 mm SECC Steel ATX FullCase CPU: Intel Core i7 950 Motherboard: Asus P6T Deluxe V2 RAM: Corsair Dominator 6GB DDR3 Video: EVGA GeForce GTX 275 896MB XFX Radeon HD 5830 1GB PSU: Tagan BZ Series BZ1300 1300W With this system I am currently OCing close to 3.8GHz Also I am OCing the Video card (the GTX 275 being my primary) the other is not OC'ed. As you could probably imagine my system is getting pretty hot. A few tests get my GPU up to 100 Celcius, no problem. Along with water cooling, I am looking to upgrade my video cards to get two in SLI or Crossfire. I was considering the Radeon HD 6950, I can seem to find water blocks easily enough for that. Here are my main questions: I WANT to water cool the CPU and GPU's no question, but is it worth it to water cool motherboard components? ie. RAM, chipsets? Is it cost effective? If I set up water cooling for my RAM and motherboard components and I going to notice or will this be a bunch of money for a very small gain? Also, it seems difficult to find water blocks for the Asus P6T Deluxe V2 chipsets, if its recommended to cool them, should I upgrade this? and recommendations?
