    Well I decided to take the plunge and go with a W/C setup. I also bought some new fans to keep everything cool and quiet as my system right now is hot and sounds like a jet engine.

    Here is a list of what I got....


    Swiftech H20-220 Apex ULTRA+ Complete System Liquid Cooling Kit
    [​IMG]

    Antec TRI-COOL 80MM 3 Speed Case Fan W/ Blue LED 3PIN 4PIN
    [​IMG]

    2X Antec TriCool 120MM Blue LED Case Fan 3PIN 4PIN W/ 3 Speed Switch
    [​IMG]

    OCZ XTC Memory Airflow Cooler Clip On Active Cooling Dual 60MM Blue LED Fans
    [​IMG]

    Thermaltake A2427 Hard Drive Blue LED Cooler 80MM 2200RPM 22CFM 21DBA Fan
    [​IMG]

    Arctic Silver Ceramique Premium High Density Thermal Compound (2.7 Gram)
    [​IMG]

    The total cost was about $480CAD I took a bit of a hit in the wallet but oh well.:laugh:
    I will post pics and open up a case gallery of my updated computer when I get the parts.
    Let me know what you think of the upgrade do you think it was a good or bad idea?


    Just put a Poll in for fun ;)

    nice oc on your card! what are your temps like? and ambit temps fot that card @ 675!@ you should get a water cooling block for your card down the road maybe.
    hey you got the same exact case and 120mm fans as me now lol, you know you can add a 80mm to the bottom, I got a 2krpm arctic cooling fan on the bottom of my case I think it will help greatly with giving fresh air to my new card.

    Thanks. I have a Spectrum LED Fan Card blowing alot of air on my GPU so I can clock it that high. And I just bought a water cooling kit so that will be used on my card lol. the temps of the GPU are 55°C-56°C on load 69°C-70°C full load. The case temp is about 36°C

    Edit - Yeah I never knew we had the same case lol and I already have a 80mm fan on the bottom of my case it's gonna be replaced with the antec fan. :)

    Here is the Spectrum LED Fan Card I have..

    I want one too...I wish I had the money. I spent all my money on my 8800 and I am currently saving to buy a Q6600 and a motherboard to run it on(haven't decided which one yet).

    BTW: Superb upgrade:rockout:
