Two of the main benchmarks right now are 3dMark
aware, they give proprietary numbers that can only really be compared with results from the same program on a different machine. Beyond a diagnostic
purpose, I dont really use them.
Those temps are nothing to worry about on your GPU.
The computer case will have water-cooling in mind, but I am not aware of one that actually comes with the parts necessary. My suggestion though is to
work a bit with what you have. The principles are the same, and on air, you will get the majority of the performance gain for
a lot less
For an all-in-one water cooler, you can get
. Your case will have to have space for the radiator.
However, as you saw, your GPUs give off the most heat in your system. Cooling them down yields pretty decent performance gains for gaming, and cools
off the ambient temps in the case. Once you start looking at this, you are looking a custom water loop. This option is more than the other two, by a
If you are using your old hard drive as the boot drive, then you are not seeing the performance gains of the SSD. Installing windows onto the SSD and
then you can just use the old hard drive for storage. Formatting the HDD will see some
performance gains, but that is only because the general
data tends to get corrupted over time. The SSD will give the single largest gains of any component in there, really. Did you end up ordering one?
