Z77 mobo has onboard video . He doesn't need a dedicated GPU since this rig is only going to be used for home server/HTPC duties.

Ah ok nm my previous post then about the GPU part.
Still, isn't the whole watercooling part a bit overkill for a home server then tho?
That unless its meant to be a that, and a watercooling project in one

Don't worry about the GPU part, you are not the first one to raise that question (and it is a
legitimate question I'd say), and I doubt you'll be the last.

I'll also be doing BOINC, so the CPU will run @ 100% 24/7 (at least that's the current plan).
So there will be plenty of heat to dissipate. Since it's supposed to be rather silent I thought
some W/C would be appropriate (it will be in our living room after all, albeit hidden in a sideboard
that can be closed). And yes, the other reason is simply that I love to tinker around with W/C,
and I still had the stuff from my previous rig, so why not use it?

Thanks for stopping by!

All i needed to hear hehe.
But yeah a massive rad with that many fans on low speed should do the trick easy!

I know what you are trying to say but z77 does not have onboard video. It supports it and the cpu has the onboard gpu

literal? Ok then...

All Z77 mobos come with onboard capabilities and can be used if the system does not have a dedicated gpu.

That better? lol

Hate to be a downer, but the graphics are located on the CPU chip nowadays, not on the motherboard's chipset
