I've been reading these forums for quite some time now, and I've decided to create an account to ask you all a personalized question.
I want to include my PC specs and the water cooling system that I acquired used
and have completely cleaned, except the reservoir currently
, and acquired the additional parts using the recommended items in these forums.
GPU = EVGA GTX 580 FTW 3GB Hydro Copper 2 (NewEgg
CPU = Intel Core i5-3570k OC @ 4.5ghz (Currently has a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ Installed)
Mobo = ASRock Z77 Extreme4
The Water Cooling System:
Pump: Laing DDC 3.2 (Pretty sure this is the same as a Swiftech MCP355)
Reservoir: Thermaltake AquaBay M3 (This still needs to be cleaned, any suggestions?)
Radiators: Swiftech 2x 120mm double pass (MCR220-QP-K) and a Danger Den 120mm (Single Pass)
CPU Block: OCZ HYDROFLOW HF-MK1 (Should I even use this?)
Southbridge Block: Danger Den Southbridge Block (Not sure the model?)
I'm using PrimoChill 3/8" ID tube with 3/8" OD barbs.
-What is the optimal way to set this up?
-Should I avoid using the cheap cpu block and keep my hyper 212+?
-Should i disregard using the southbridge block?
-Will this pump handle the 2 radiators and the blocks?
-Whats the best way to clean my res?
-Any tips on my initial setup? (I've never done water cooling before, all my research has been the past week)
Thanks in advance for any input anyone can provide!
