I just bought my HP Omen 870-090nz but in Switzerland the PC are delivered with an air cooling CPU and not with a liquid cooling system.
In the past I made very good experiences with liquid cooling (low noise, good cooling, no problem wiht dust). I would like to replace now the cooling system. I can't find any third party which delivers a small liquid cooling system. I think all the systems requiers at least a 120mm (Corsair H60 / H75) - in the existing case of Omen 870 there is space for only a 100mm cooling case.
Do you know where I can buy a liquid cooling which match in my Omen 870? Thanks in advance for your support.
-Can your current PSU handle the extra load of a watercooler (it should but you know it doesnt hurt to look).
The airflow on the case and which way you want to set up your cooler.
If your Bios wont allow you to change you PWM settings it really messes with a lot of AIO liquid coolers with PWM settings. This will limit you to slightly older AIOs with 3 pin fans running at max speed or using voltage limiters to make them less noisy. if you can fit a 240mm rad in your case i will recommend the NZXT Kraken X52 as you can manually control the fans via software as it plugs into a spare USB header and uses 3 pin fan to the CPU fan socket.
If you fan mounts are in odd spots on the motherboard it may mean you need to be creative with mounting and placement and may limit your options.
Mounting spots may severly hamper your choice of AIOs as you may not have enough room for placement of larger rads or may even entirely limit you in getting an AIO LCS at all. Dont forget that often rads are a little larger than the fan for built in resivoirs and the like. Also look at how thick the rad of the unit you are thinking of getting is. there are a wide range of rads starting from 25mm thick. The most common being 30mm thick.
If getting an AIO unit is proving difficult it may be worth looking at installing a custom loop if you are comfortable doing so.
Hope this helps.
