I have a NVidia GeForce 8400GS 512MB PCIe video card. I was wondering if it's absolutely necessary to use liquid-cooling for overclocking my video card? I don't have enough money to buy a kit and a compatible case, so i was wondering if it's absolutely positively necessary. If so, I'll wait until I get paid to buy all the accoutrements needed.

Thanks, BigBruiners!

Definetly not worth it for that card. In fact, water cooling a graphics card is unnecessary unless you have a hot air pocket (in which case, its cheaper to get a better case), or you plan on doing a lot of voltage tweaks to the card.

The limiting factor on video card overclocks is not heat, its the fixed voltage value that 99% of cards have, your included.
