Is there any tips for buying a cooling system? Pros and cons to each type (Liquid versus... whatever other types there are.)?
I've heard of some sort of vegetable oil ran cooling system? Is that even real? I'm guessing there's a nitrogen based cooling system that I would probably never need, but I would still like to know about it.
I know most equipment comes with fans and cooling systems that are supposed to work fine at factory default. But since I'll be sticking so much into my computer, and I will probably OC it in the future (If not with this current hardware, then with the next.), so I want to keep it cool. I also just don't want any problems with my computer, as I've had a long history of computers with problems. Adding overheating and broken hardware would just be one more thing to worry about.
Current setup (Not yet decided on a motherboard.):
2x HIS Radeon HD 7970 GHz edition
G.Skill Ripjaws Z Series 4x4GB (16GB) (Note: I know that 8GB runs any powerful game just fine at any speed. I wanted to grab 12 gigs just to be safe as well as speed up things like file converting and multi-tasking, but there was no in-between that had heat spread. Plus, blue is cool. =D)
I will update this as I decide on more things like my 2 SSD's, a sound card, network card (Do I even need one of these anymore?), Blu-ray drive, power supply and tower (Did I miss anything?), but it's no doubt that my computer will be producing a high amount of heat especially when playing heavy games.
