Hey everyone! Right now I have a Corsair 600T case that is too large for me and I would like to make a much smaller PC with a Corsair Air240 case. This case can only fit one rad in it so i'm deciding whether I should liquid cool my CPU or GPU. The links to the parts are below: 

 

Also I'm fairly new to custom watercooling so if someone could check that the sizes are right would be very appreciated.

That case is optimized for airflow, and i word of warngind, that case is really small, intalling rads, tubing, res and all that stuff can lead to be a nightmare. Id recommend a AiO for the cpu, and a GPU with a beffy heatsink, that case has plenty of airflow.

 

 

If you still want to go the path you have chosen, id go for CPU, because GPU upgrades will be more frequent than CPU upgrades, and just imagine if you get a new gpu, a few years from now, you take it off and BOOM WATER ALL OVER EVERYTHING, so yea id go for CPU


Are you new to the forums???? read the Code of Conduct HERE WANT SOME AWESOME LTT THEMED WALLPAPERS??? check out XTanksSlayerX's wallpaper thread HERE

Would it still be worth custom water cooling only my cpu then? or should I get one prebuilt?
