I am getting a Q6600 soon and seen some good results with watercooling. The only problem I have is that I am buying a 3870 XT for the moment and will be buying a new card next year (when the new ones are out) as the monitor I am getting is 1920x1200 so no current gen cards can handle that res yet so just fancy a cheap card for the mo that is better than old card. Is it easy to modify a loop to also have the gpu on it when I get it? (Thinking of 3 rad setup so will be enough cooling).

Also the case, thinking of a P182, but any recommendations?

:confused: I use a single GTX and game quite happily at 2560x1600.

But in answer to your question : Yes you can modify your loop but it will mean draining your current one which is the only 'difficult' thing to do. You really don't need 3 rads either. 1 Quality rad or maybe 2 is more than enough.

I may just get the ocuk GTX on offer and watercool that now too. Would stop my problem of having to drain the loop.

Is your q6600 watercooled? As 4ghz sounds nice. What ram/mobo are you using? And how many volts?

Thanks.

Yup its watercooled. So is the ram (OCZ Flex9200) and the motherboard (Asus Blitz). Vcore varies depnding on what speed I run it at.
