Is liquid cooling recommended for this processor and graphics card?

    An Intel Core i5-2500K Sandy Bridge 3.3GHz (3.7GHz Turbo Boost) and EVGA GeForce GTX 570. Much help appreciated. Just one graphics card.

    Thank you.

    The GPU needs to built with liquid cooling in mind I think. The cpu can use what ever you want that fits it.

    A gpu is just like a cpu, in that you can use just about any aftermarket cooler you want.

    As for what the op is asking, it's really a personal preference. I watercool my components for aesthetic and noise reasons,

    I wasn't sure you could add an aftermarket watercooler to a gpu, I wasn't even aware of aftermarket coolers for gpu's until recently.

    Watercoolers perform better than air coolers, but cost more.
