For my "first" water cooling build I am thinking about getting a Swiftech 240 X2.
Does anyone here use Swiftech as a water cooling build?

Ah, bogus... you should do something like this:

This is a good system, and one I planned on including in my next build.

Does your $8K computer nearly melt down when overclocking 600X? No? Then why do you need water cooling?

Intel/AMD processors are engineered to keep your CPU in thermal tolerance even if you overclock the CPU (which you have to buy the right one in the first place, as most you cannot).

"I'm too old for this stuff" or in other words lost interest in modding / overclocking my PC. I did it in the past but just don't have the time for it anymore. Something always goes wrong sooner or later. It's a fun project if you're interested in things like that and have the necessary time to do it properly. So go for it, Purestone. Just know what you're getting into...

Beer, I get what you're saying but CPUs, GPUs and memory chips are also designed to work within certain thermal boundaries. In other words if you keep the temperature down and adjust the voltages accordingly, you can overclock your CPU / GPU to a higher degree (provided you have the right hardware as you said).

I'm not an expert at all but I think that CPU overclocking is not even necessary in most cases. The FPS gains are marginal. I still run a Sandybridge i5 2500k (about 5 years old) and for almost all games the GPU is the bottleneck. CPU has not a lot of impact on game performance these days unless you have a dual core i3, some shitty AMD CPU or want to SLI 3 980 GPUs.

He asked what if anyone had any experience with that system. Personally I will use water cooling next go around on a PC build. I require no education on CPU heat, usage, nor bottleneck issues. I'm well aware of that.
