    I want to Water cool my NEW rig..Bought a Mining GPU- MSI 1080 Armor and want to put a 8700K CPU
    Monitor is an old Crossover IPS 1440 x 2560 60Mhz

    I will Light OC the 8700K CPU to 5Mhz....

    The Mining GPU is a big ?? I am sure it has been rode hard and put away wet. Thinking just to make sure temps stay down. Going to use this G12 bracket on it So my AIO choices are limited (mybe I do not need to water cool it- thoughts)

    its an asetek round pump (gen 4/5 dont remember) and will work but needs new/different screws. I guess stick with the corsair.

    A CPU watercooler won't give you much lower temps than a nice heatsink unless you get something bigger than 240mm.

    A GPU watercooler will drop your GPU temps a lot. I saw a 20C drop from stock MSI cooler to a Corsair H55 (120mm). I tested a Corsair H105 (240mm) and saw another 10C drop.

    What kind of radiator space do you have in your case?
    What about noise? Do you want the ability to have it be really quiet at idle? Some coolers come with stupid loud fans that are noisy even at min rpm, some have pumps that are the same way.
    Any fan color you would prefer? I know Fractal and at least some Thermaltake come with white blade fans, Corsair has Grey fans. Of course a lot are just black.
    Some coolers connect with USB and use their own software to control pump/fan speeds. Other coolers use your motherboard headers and can be controlled by your motherboard's software or other 3rd party software.

    As someone who went through an AIO phase and had cpu/gpu on AIO, I recommend jumping straight to a watercooling loop. AIO on CPU isn't that impressive compared to a gigantic heatsink. AIO on gpu = you should just put a block on it while you have everything off. Just my 2 rupees.

    I don't know if the new H75 fits since it is square (it might have the normal round mounting underneath). If you are limited to a 120mm maybe look for one with a thicker radiator like the Arctic Cooling Liquid Freezer 120.

    you are correct the H75 (2018) will not fit..only the round mounts. Also the G12 has a list of compatible coolers..


    There is an older H75 SKU CW-9060015-WW round and a new H75 2018 Square

    There are other coolers that are compatible that are not on the list. The two I know of are the Fractal Celcius and the Arctic Cooling Liquid Freezer.

    Well, I am down to an 1 Exhaust Fan point on the
    back of my P350x to put any AIO for the GPU...so it is going to have to be a Single fan design

    On a Side note the H75 WILL work..Well, the H75 SKU CW-9060015-WW is round and is on the LIST to work...it looks like an H55 but with 2 Fans Push/Pull.

    I am really leaning toward the H55 and putting on a NF Fan....If I got the AIO route

    What AIO did you use?

    I find the 240mm or 280mm AIOs perform on par with high-end air coolers. Anything similar to a dinky H60 on a CPU is pretty meh.

    Can't remember the exact model but it was a 240mm Corsair. Pump died after 2 years. If I put the fans at 100% it performed well, but was loud as hell. In the end, the temps I got were about what I could get on a big heatsink/fan. I even upgraded the Corsair fans to Noctua and didn't help much, just with noise.

    I went with the EVGA 280mm CLC AIO.....Temps are around 28.0 c Idle and highest I have seen on records was while gaming is 53.0 c. But every time I look at it live I am around upper 30's...

    RAD is in front of Phanteks P350x case. Push set up. Fans are loud above 1500RPM. So just purchased
    NF-A14 Fans...Worth every dollar..My other Noctua fans are over 8 years old and still running great
