Want To Try Liquid Cooling But Don't Know Where To Start.

 Share

So... on Cyber Monday I bought a Sapphire Radeon RX Vega 64 way below the MSRP of $499 USD or $663 Canadian Rupees for $479.99 Canadian Rupees or $361.35 USD. IMO, it was quite a steal considering the other Vega 64 are about $750+ CAD or $565+ USD right now. Before purchase I read the reviews and they were all pretty good except they all had the same CON. The card would get too hot/ thermal throttle. That's it. So I bought the card and its on its way in shipping. During my time of excitement building up, I thought how will I cool this thing? So I though to try and Liquid Cool it. Except, I've never done any liquid cooling in my life not even with an AIO. So I hopped on EKWB and got confused as to what exactly I need to buy to cool this thing. For example the size of the Radiator, to be able to cool a card with an almost 300W power draw, 295W to be exact. Do I go for 240mm, 280mm, or 360mm. For a Reservoir, does the capacity it holds even matter? Should I get a Reservoir/Pump Combo. Or should I just get a EK Fluid Gaming Kit or should I get a EK-MLC (Modular Liquid Cooling). I'm not even gonna consider EK Configurator because it scares my wallet.   :(
