    Default Thinking quite far ahead...

    I was thinking ahead to my birthday, and I have a question. I want to watercool my computer. The CPU and eventually graphics card. How much more performance can I get out of my 4890 if I watercooled it? Or my other option is to rather get a bigger power supply.. say 1200W.

    Unless you're ready to volt mod, it's unlikely that your 4890 will have much more headroom under water. It'll run cooler under water, but I think that voltage will block its OC sooner than temps will.
