Was maybe considering water cooling on a bit of a budget (what with a wedding coming up and some other expenses). Can't really justify a full loop at this time, however i was thinking about finally overclocking my CPU and GPU. More importantly the GPU over the CPU but whatever. Currently i have an i7-3770k and an EVGA GTX 970 FTW+ GPU (and a silverstone RL-01 redline case). An AIO solution for the CPU is easy (and ive had one in the past on my OC'd C2Q but sold it when i sold the mobo/cpu), however im a little more stumped on the GPU. I know it wont be as pretty as a custom loop but it'll get the job done. I could have a 240mm AIO setup on the top of my case for the CPU but could probably only do a 120mm/140mm either on the exhaust or the intake of my case for GPU use. Other than the corsair bracket, which im not sure will even fit, do you guys have any advice? Im also looking to keep it as low maintenance as possible. Currently my temps aren't the best but they are fine (but not for OC'ing). GPU can sometimes get to 80c under load and the CPU gets to like 74c max with a hyper 212+. Case has 3 120mm fans on it: 1 intake in front, 1 intake on top, 1 exhaust on back. Thanks in advance!
