Sorry if this has been asked lots before... I guess I just need a final kick in one direction or the other.
I'm looking to buy a new mid-range PC before next year starts for myself. I don't care about noise but want pretty low maintenance (i.e open case every few months), also not planning to overclock much at all but I love low case/component temps. I am looking to slightly case mod with a few neons etc, a UV dye would look awesome.
I love the look of water cooling, I love the fact that water and radiators etc are working together to cool the system, the "coolness" factor is great
. And of course temps are lower if you do it right.
Negatives are price? And perhaps more areas to fail. Also still need air cooling for rest of system + rad.
Now as for air cooling, get a big f--- off heatsink, good system cooling and the temps are pretty good as we all know.
We have dust build up but that's pretty easy to clean out, and you would get that on a water cooling set-up's rad?
Air cooling price around 80 quid tops?
Water cooling price around 200? I'm not sure on this seems to vary a lot.
After typing this it just seems like air cooling looks more suited to me.. Lets see what you guys say
