    Question Help Watercooling Crossfire Rig

    Hello

    I have just put together a new system and I would like start a watercooling project on it.

    My specs are

    Case: Antec Nine Hundred
    http://www.antec.com/us/productDetails.php?ProdID=15900
    *PSU stay at the bottom

    Motherboard: Asus P5W DH Deluxe
    http://uk.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=...98&modelmenu=1

    Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E6600 2.4ghz
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...icroprocessors

    Graphics: Saphire ATI X1950XTX 512mb
    *I am planning to buy the crossfire edition as well
    http://www.sapphiretech.com/uk/produ...gpid=161&grp=3

    Is it possible to watercool the processor and both GPUs? Is it worth watercolling both heat points of the motherboard? Which radiator can I fit inside that case? If I cannot fit one can I place it outside? Which kit should I buy!?:confused:

    I am completely new to watercooling so please pardon my ignorance. Any help or directions to where I could find information about similar specs being watercooled would be great.

    Thank you

    Dan Rizzo

    i dont know much about water cooling but later someone will say "dont buy a kit and buy the parts seprate, it preforms way better" .

    but to me it looks like you would be able to fit watercooling in it with no problem but you may need a small/ medium radiator...but if it dosent fit im sure you can put it outside the case and it will work the same way.
    What?

    before talking watercooling, on wednesday the 8800 GTX comes out, are you sure you'd want crossfire over that? I'm not sure i would...

    As for watercooling, it's certainly worth watercooling your CPU and GPU if you want to overclock further than on air, but i wouldn't bother with anything else like the northbridge etc, it's not worth it.

    Looking at the pics of the case, I can't see if you can fit a rad in the there but chances are you could. Would need better pics of the internals first.

    I've never used water before but I would say that you probably dont want to buy all the pieces separate, unless you really do some research on it. If I were to invest in watercooling I would first buy a kit than after, with some more knowledge/expirience, try setting it up piece by piece. Anyone correct me if this is a bad idea.

    i guess it depends on how much of a challenge you want, i went right to building a cutom kit and found it fun, so it really depends on that. I wouldn't say its much harder to build a custom kit compared to a ready made one tbh.

    I'm not sure you can fit a radiator in there...I would go with an external Koolance system. Something like the Exos 2...depending on who coll you want it <.<.
