I did water cooling when I was in college. A couple years ago I tried it again.
I realized I'm to lazy for water cooling.
I can do aio's but ultimately, I'd just go air cooling most of the time. I also realized that I really don't want any more than about 300 watts from my gpu.
So, this was a bit unexpected. The rtx 3050 250 dollar model was in stock and it was 20 dollars on sale (I should say from the que).
Out the door I was able to get it for 223.09. A friend needs it so, I'll get it to him at cost.
Just to be clear, this isn't a good deal, but it's tolerable.
