GPU Custom Coolers with Liquid Cooling

Hi, I'm planning on getting a new computer, and I've never done it before. I need a little help with coolers. I'm planning on getting the Corsair H Series, and I was wondering if your GPU has build in custom fans, is the cooler still necessary for the GPU?

  1. Best answer
    The graphics card has its own cooling solution installed, you dont need to purchase anything else for them.

    I would also recommend a hard pass on CLCs (closed loop coolers). They are generally loud, expensive, and perform the same as air coolers at half the price.
  2. I agree with GAm3r01. Get one of those nice triple fan cooler models or a bigger 2 fan ones like MSI and call it a day.

    How can you tell if the cooler is Closed Loop?
  4. Almost any water cooler you pick is going to be a CLC (they all look the same, and half of them are made by the same company).
    There arent many open loop coolers. Some examples are the H240x2 or EKWB Predator series.

    Depending on your budget its almost always best to get a decent air cooler over water and invest the money elsewhere.

    Are double fanned GPU's just as good?
  6. The number of fans is not the deciding factor, its the quality of the construction.

    Dual fan cards like MSIs Gaming series are phenomenal, so are Sapphires triple fan coolers. It depends on the card in question.
