Help with possible new loop

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This summer i was looking to get better cooling and quiet my pc by putting a full loop in. That being said, I have researched the past couple of weeks about the basics and whether it would be possible with my case, a NZXT M59.

I have come up with a list of a possible setup, but I need some help confirming that these parts would work. I am almost 100% certain that the radiator will fit in the top of my case, and I will mount the 2 fans outside on top.



I wasn't so sure that the pump/radiator combo would be sufficient to cool both a i5 750 and GTX 460. Oh and I wouldn't be using the barbs that are included with the blocks.

Any suggestions?

For your cpu block, go with the XSPC Rasa, it performs much better than the one you have up there and is only about $5 more expensive.

For your radiator, go with the XSPC RX240 or the HW-Labs SR-1 240, both are better low/mid speed radiators.

For your fans, the best ones are Gentle Typhoons, but if they are sold out/out of your budget then I recommend checking out Martin's review of all the different fans. He's got a lot of graphs of all the different ones tested so that will show you what is the next best.

Hope that helps.

Also a 240 is enough for those two, neither of them put out a ton of heat.

Yeah, go for the Rasa or an EK Supreme HF (the one you have is an LTX and it's far inferior to the HF). As for radiator, I'd go for an RX360. That way, you have plenty of headroom for future expansion. Water cooling is all about laying down the capital to save yourself money in the long run. Well, almost all about

Those Scythe fans are good but Gentle Typhoons sound better, however are more expensive. It's down to opinion on this one but I think GT's would suit you better.

Furthermore, avoid 90-degree fittings whenever possible. They pose massive flow restrictions to your loop. Get two 45-degree adapters and join them together if need be.

Actually, 90 degree fittings are no longer as restrictive as they used to be. Having a few will not harm his temps whatsoever so he is fine.
