    Ive a 2nd rig which has an MSI Seahawk GTX1080 which Id like to plumb in.

    I have all parts for custom loop.. except the EK CPU block I have spare is for 115x not am4.. :/

    Should i splurge on a XSPC raystorm for $60 ( PLE) or the pro for 80 and just do the full loop, or leave it as is with the stock ?

    The chip doesn't get *that* hot even when gaming ?
    Only using a single 240rad, but there'll be a ton of extra 120mm noctuas

    is it needed for a 1600 ? not really but consider the fact that you may upgrade with the new 3000 series coming

    also its never a bad idea to watercool ;)
