Taking advices on my First Water Loop

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I'm trying to put together a water loop for a SLI GTX480. I've gather the following together and I'd really appreciate all the input possible from the WC gurus. Please feel to criticize any of the items I've chosen since I'm open to any recommendations.



I'm trying to make a list of barbs, fitting, etc... I'm having a hard time putting together the list lol

P.S. About the CPU, I'm running an H50 atm(4.4.38 ghz 24/7 stable for the last 6 months). However, I'm planning to get an EK block along with an extra pump and an extra water block for the third gtx480.

Still won't need an extra pump. Also that rad won't take the heat from 3 480s and your cpu.

Thanks for the input. What about adding an XSPC RX480 quad 120mm Radiator or a Swiftech MCR420 quad 120mm?

I would stay out of Nickel plated EK blocks. Just read yesterday that EK have big problem on their hand with nickel peeling off and uncovering copper core. There is lot of people on OCN and also elsewhere reporting issues.
