Finishing up my WC Build -

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Im getting my parts in order for my build. The goal of my build is to make it as quiet as possible due to the fact that the computer will be in my bedroom. I want to start off with just CPU for now but maybe when funds allowed, ill add in a GPU. So far i know im gonna roll with -

-RX360 Triple 120mm Rad $99
-FrozenQ PC Mods 250mm Liquid Fusion V $99
- Swiftech MCP655-B 12v Water Pump w/ 3/8" Conversion Kit 89.95
- 2.5 Meter (8 feet) Feser Tube Active UV Hose - Retail Packed - 3/8" ID (1/2 "OD) 24.99


- I know i need a killcoil and am planning on using BP Compression fittings.

Im still unsure of the CPU Block that i want to use. If anyone can look over my parts and suggest a good CPU block, i think id be done!

Quiet as possible...Replace those fans with 3 Gentle Typhoon AP-14s

Or if you have a speed controller get ap-15s and wind them back a bit.


The Swiftech Block is my suggestion.

I still very new to watercooling myself and recently purchased the XSPC Rasa kit with the 360 Rad an am very happy with it. If you are on a budget I would highley encourage your go with that instead. One pro/con depending how you look at it about the res/pump though, it is a combo and takes up 2 5.25" bays, but saves space in your case that way. Picked mine up for about $180ish on frozencpu. But if you are determines to stick with your custom setup, I have read a lot of good things about the EK waterblocks. Which specific one, I can't really help you out. But I have read nothing but good things about EK products.

Your list looks good. Like the others said, the EK Supreme HF block is awesome. I have the same block so thats my recommendation as well.

Im not sure how thin you are looking for but the Gentle Typhoons are great and are 120x25mm. Thats the thinnest I have seen and I have them on my RX360. They dont take up too much space.

EDIT: If you got with the Gentle Typhoons then get the AP-15 1850rpm ones. I have 3 3000rpm and 1 4500 rpm and they are way too loud to leave on in the bedroom while trying to sleep even on low. As soon as the AP-15's come back in stock, im changing all mine to them so I can leave my rig on all night.

I run my AP-15s 24/7 at 1850 and they are noticeable if my room is quiet but if i leave my ceiling fan on I cant hear em. Your specs were similar to mine because I like quiet when I sleep and there is always the option of a fan controller to turn them down at night and just have the system run a few C hotter. I went with a EK Hf Supreme Cu, 655b (the variable might be a little better if you wanna run it on 3 although its only slightly more quiet), 3 GT AP-15's and a EK 5970 Full cover block on a RX 360.

If you are really into quiet you can look at a rad like the 1080's out there and run fans at like 1k rpm or lower but that will have to be an external mount.
