    So are you going custom loop? Becuase that is a closed loop 120mm cooler it seems.
    So you want to cool just the CPU with a 360 and 240 rad?

    Not doing custom loop as I don't have the skill. Yeah, I'm thinking 360 rad for the CPU but I'm still thinking about the GPU. Will probably go hybrid though. Not sure if I want to go Titan Xp(for some workstation stuff).

    I want to try some hardline custom loops on my current PC. Then maybe I will do the new PC. Still playing around with the ideas for now. That is why I want to get the most out of the case. So I have options when I start the build.

    360 i Overkill for just a CPU, even my 280 is overkill that I have in atm! =D
    If you want to cool you GPU as well, go custom loop and rather get a full waterblock for the GPU.
    If you plan on just cooling the CPU, id rather get an AIO unit

    So after watching some Youtube, I ordered a case. Bequiet 900 Pro. Way overpriced but has enough flexibility for my ever changing build/mind. [MENTION=21]The Joker[/MENTION] I think I got caught up in the possibilites and hope this doesn't bite me

    I do not really know the case at all. Looks huge though! Enough space for a custom loop =D

    Did you do your custom loop? What are the costs if you don't me asking?

    Yes I did indeed.
    Well that is like asking how much a car costs.

    How big is the car, what brand and and and.

    But yes, a custom loop gets very expensive. Especially if you are cooling the GPU and CPU.
    I made some threads about Watercooling, where to start and what to look for. There are many choices, and quality products are preferred as if they there will be expensive components on the line.

    Have a look:
