[First timer] TJ07 WC Rig Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm not happy with my rigs temps and noise output (mostly thanks to my GPU fans..). Considering most good aftermarket air coolers are 3 slot and impossible to SLI I figure now is a good time to take the plunge and go for my first water cooled system.

This is my first time water cooling a rig. My budget is high and I'm in no rush whatsoever so I have plenty of time to do my homework and get everything right - but I need your help!

This is my entire parts list for this build, including possibly all the no brainer parts (hopefully!).

Case
SilverStone Temjin TJ07 - £250

Waterblocks
EK-Supreme HF Acetal/Nikel - £58
EK-FC580 GTX+ Acetal/Nikel x2 - £160
EK-FC580 GTX Backplate x2 - £44

Resevoir
FrozenQ Liquid Fusion V 250x60mm - £68

Radiators
Black Ice SR-1 360 - £107
Black Ice SR-1 240 - £81

Pump
12v Alphacool Laing D5 Vario - £75

Hosing
3M Masterkleer UV-Reactive PVC 1/2" ID - £12

Fittings
Zinc Plated 3/4" OD Jubilee Clips x10 - £4
1/2"ID 3/4"OD Angled Compression Fitting
x3 - £10 (for lower rad + res intake)
1/2"ID 3/4"OD Compression Fitting x7 - £24
Variable SLI Connector - £5

Fans
Phobya Nano-2G PWM Silent 1500rpm 120mm x6 - £72

Accessories
Sharkoon 4" CCFL (Red) x2 - £7
NZXT Sentry LX Fan Controller - £47

Other relevent parts
Asus Maximus IV Extreme - already owned
2x Palit 1280mb GTX 570s (reference) - already owned


£1024 / $1680 Total
. (20% VAT is awesome)
The total cost is about £100 more than I would have prefered, however, I'll be bringing this together over the next 2-3 so it's not a big difference.

I'm thinking the most effecient loop would be
Res > Pump > 360 > GPU1 > GPU2 > 240 > CPU > Res

Here's an awesomely colour coded layout plan


What I need help with
I'm looking for help and suggestions on a number of things really...
Most importantly, are my current choice of WC parts compatbile with each other and my hardware?
Suggestions on ways to trim the cost without sacrificing too much quality/performance/aesthetic appeal?
Is 1 loop/pump enough for cooling SLI with 2 rads?
Is my 1000w PSU enough to power everything?
Other suggestions/ideas/etc!

Quite a long post, and quite a lot to ask, so +rep for valuable input

I am thinking you have enough power to power all of this. If you would like to do some calculating for yourself here is a calculator that should be able to give you a pretty decent idea of the power needed:

As far as your whole water cooling setup goes, it looks pretty good in my opinion and should provide sufficient cooling with the dual radiator setup - but I cannot answer your questions about compatibility.

Thanks for the link. According to that I'll have around 150w head room which I'm happy with.

You will have plenty of radiator.

If you buy a top for you pump it will increase efficiency and performance a bit and you will also be able to use compression fittings on it. It will void your warranty though. That is the price you have to pay for what you get with a top.
