Thinking of watercooling!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So lately, 

my pc that i built abt a month ago is looking a bit bland. I honestly wanted rgb everything but couldnt get rgb items like ram, mobo, etc because it would cost a lot more. 

Im thinking of watercooling and wondered if it was worth it for my specs? Its for aesthetics really, and i will be doing hardline tubing. But the thing is.. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THE PARTS ARE TO WATERCOOL A PC! HELP PLEASE BTW IM IN AUSTRALIA! 

My current spces:

Ryzen 5 2600

Rtx 2060 super




If you have any advie please just comment it!

custom water cooling is nothing more than a hobby. the temps arent that much better than if you bought the best air coolers available like noctua and it is insane effort. you have to keep opening the pc up every year or two to clean everything.

usually people who do this have top of the line hardware and push it to its limits with overclocking but yours is pretty average so i wouldnt bother.

the main reason is that water cooling is so expensive that if you added that money to your computer budget you could easily buy better computer parts.

you can still do it if you are bored and want to take it up as a hobby but thats up to you.

Watercooling is primarily a 'because I can' thing, performance is a little better but not earth-shattering. 


The cheapest way to make a case look pretty is good cable management and strategically-placed LED strips.
