Just get a 240mm AIO or 280mm AIO depends on your case though.  That is plenty enough if you are on a budget then a 120mm aio would still be fine.

This ^ - stick to air cooling if you can IMO

what about the hydro x custom cooling from corsair

You do get a small performance boost most of the time with custom loop, but its waaaay more expensive and really only for looks 95% of the time. AIOs these days offer great performance for the money. an AIO is the simpler route to go for water cooling.. even really with GPUs since you can just get a NZXT G12 bracket and slap an AIO on it.

i kind of just started learning about pc’s and I am wondering how many coolers you put into a pc. Probably a stupid question sorry

That depends on what case you have, how many fan mounts it has, what type of cooling you use, what configuration you use, what motherboard spacing there is, and how many you actually want to use.

where from

Where ?

Depends on what ur after and ur location.

 

'normaly' it would be EKWB blocks, any 'copper' rads though HWLabs are good, probably EKWB fittings, but u can get monsoon fittings, bitspower etc, hard/soft tubing from where ever, D5 pump , res , (or a combo unit) .. There are many brands for each part available form a variety of places that deal in PC components.

 

other options are to go with Barrow .. or Bykski ..both a Chinese companies so u have to buy through aliexpress.

 

You could go with a 'kit' from companies like EKWB, they do both copper kits and aluminium kits which are cheaper but less compatible with future upgrades as blocks can be a pita to find.

Don't forget Alphacool, their stuff is great as well.

what do you think the better cooling option is?

Basically , u go with a top of the line air cooler (like NH-D15 or DRP4) .. or a 360mm AIO ..or a Custom loop. Each one performs better and is more expensive than the previous.

 

Dont bother with 120mm, 140mm, 240mm, or 280mm AIO's. They are far more common but usually more expensive than top end air coolers, usually louder, have an extra point of failure, and perform no better than top end air coolers. You should really only consider them when u cant fit a tower heatsink air cooler due to space constraint (like in SFF builds)

 

A top end air cooler can cost somewhere around £60-80

A 360mm AIO cost around £100-160

A custom loop depends on the build but generally between £300-800

 

(for reference 240/280mm AIO can cost between £60 and £120)

The performance difference is normally in the 8-10c range just on deltaT. So that doesn't even consider the better waterblocks.

 

Now you have another aspect which is sound. You are much more likely to get near silent operation on a custom loop.

 

Then the next big advantage is efficiency. Having 2 AIOs might cool two components, but that extra thermal head room is lost. In a custom loop you don't waste capacity and instead it is shared between the components you decide to cool.

 

Now the downsides are of course price and a higher risk of user error causing a leak. I guess we could list maintenance requirements too here.

 

Now there are expandable AIOs. Which give you higher quality components with the option to add another radiator and gpu for a custom loop for much much cheaper than a full custom loop. The expandable AIO isn't even that much more expensive than the normal CLC systems. They also have a performance advantage over the CLC.

 

So I think I would say that for some the middle ground is best. Pickup an expandable AIO to start then for a little more than a second AIO you can add a radiator and gpu block.

I feel they are overpriced atm. The loop config though makes things easy.

 

I would suggest also looking at the corsair lineup. They also have a config tool and you can save some money.

Yup...Corsair Hydro X series launched at Computex this year.  If you have any questions, let me know.  The configurator is linked below, and should help in designing your first loop:

I'll chime in with the hydro X part. Especially their Pump/Res combo. It's a D5 so you can use it with other custom loops too but I love that their reservoir is not acrylic and doesn't seem to be quite as susceptible as it is to turning brittle from heat cycles or cracking (because of them).
