Ok so I'm building a sleeper PC out of a old Packard bell legend 130cd supreme case. But my cooling setup is certainly up in the air. I have most of the parts all ready so I'm not realty spending any money. I don't have the 1050it or 1650gtx. I do not want to cut up the case any more then I have to to fit an AXT board in it. Setup one, Air cooled. I3 8350k gtx titan (kepler, I have one setting unused) scythe big shuriken 3 with better fan. The titan will be rotated 90 degrees and on top on the motherboard with a 92mm intake fan right next to it. The psu's 120mm fan and the GPU will act as exhaust. Water cooled setup. I modded the case with a modular ATX/PCI slot back plane, it can take 3 full length cards on top of the motherboard wit ha riser cable or 4 low profile cards. I3 8350k 1050ti gtx LP or 1650gtxlp if I wait a wile I3 8350k or 9350kf HWlabs 184mm rad (have a few and believe it or not they work grate despite being really small) DDC pump. old scool gold koolance gpu block. old scool koolance gold cpu block. No rez, but a t-line. Both setups will have the GPU at stockspeeds with a mild OC on the CPU. I have all the water cooling parts and I know that the CPU block can handle a over clocked Pentium Extreme Edition 965 and the GPU block can handle a over over clocked fx5950 ultra. What are your thoughts? My thoughts are that both setups are flawed in there own way. The water cooled setup would have higher temps all around but would not be so loud. The air cooled setup would have better CPU temps but with very high GPU temps. Now I could can the titan all together and use the system air cooled with a 1650 LP, but I don't know. seems like a wast of money as the titan is about the same performance and Id only be making the system quieter with it.
