Hi, this is my first forum post so please bare with me.
I'm upgrading my current rig slightly because A) my case has scratches all over the place and B) I'd like to make for a cleaner setup.
I was wondering, would it be a good idea to get an AIO liquid cooler such as a Corsair H100i v2, or an NZXT Kraken x6, or any other suggestions? I'm overclocking my CPU slightly from 3.5 GHz to 4.0 GHz, all being cooled by the Hyper 212 EVO. I'm also planning on upgrading my case to the Fractal Design Define S or the Phanteks P400S case with the side window, and I also had ideas to put in some LED lights to show off the internals.
ALSO, I plan on getting a GTX 1080 when I go through with this whole upgrade process.
So all in all, would it be a good idea to upgrade to an AIO cooler, and if so, which one? Also, if anyone has any suggestions as to a simplistic, minimalist case option, all opinions will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much for your time!
