Default Re: Gaming rig

If you like the V8's design you are gonna love the "CM V8 GTS" design. The article i linked to is a review of that cooler.



I wound't buy it my self. The cooling performance is average for good air coolers but the noise level are a little louder than average.
I would go for some closed loop water cooling. I have the Hydro H60 2013 edition. I am very satisfied with it.
It performs good and it's not as big and clunky as most high performance air coolers

But dose that hydro you have keep it really cool. How would u rate it. What temps do you get under a heavy load. Do u think it is safe for a LAN party case. What is its over clocking potential. I just want to make sure I keep it really cool.

My Performance rating would be 8/10. (were the H100i would be 10/10)

I have a Core i7-4770K. It's overclocked by 52%. which is a lot.
Under stress it keeps it at around 70C and idle at 36-37C
