First watercooling loop, help/guidance welcome.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey all, i've been planning for quite some time to do water cooling and i have selected a few parts. Now im going to try to do something that not many people have done (according to my googleftw searching) And that is to do a full loop in a Lian-li PC-K62. Now i really do like this case, i was orginally planning on buy a 700D but thought, why not have some fun.

First off some parts i had my eye on.

XSPC RX360 RAD
EK Supreme LT nickel (AMD)
EK DCP 4.0 pump
AP-15's
Primoflex 1/2, 3/4
Bitspower matte Black 1/2 CC5 compression fittings.
EK 150 multioption res

Thats the first part, secondly (when the GPU blocks come back in stock)

EK 6970 acetal/nickel block
XSPC RX120 rad.

Now i know you're all going to go "where the F**K can you fit an RX360 in a that case. Well my idea is to remove the HD bay, and the 5.25 bay, and mount it to the front of the case intaking air (measured it all, will fit fine).

So, firstly i will be cooling just my CPU with the 360, but will be adding my 6950 and possible crossfire (when i upgrade to sandybridge) and the RX 120, will that be sufficient cooling, i did a google around and it looks that way. Any notes about the pump i have chosen?

And after the wall of text, heres my idea (champion paint skills)





goes res>pump>rad>cpu>res

When GPU added it will go

res>pump>360>cpu>120>gpu>res

Thoughts welcome etc.

First thread like a champ

Looks good but I think your fine with one rx360. I would save my money and skip the 120 or just get 2 rs 240s.

The EK LTX(Light Xtreme) is the newer version of the LT.
The pump you have chosen is fine.

this was my thought exactly, the only time i use a disk drive is to install windows pretty much, so ill just hook one up.

And thanks ill look around for the LTX

Good luck with your build. I wanted to go with watercooling, sold my k62, and got my 690 II. Much easier tbh. But, modding is fun.

Been hearing bad things about Nickel EK Waterblocks (although I just bought a EK Supreme and 6990 block myself). Not trying to scare, like I said, I just got two blocks myself, but haven't charged the loops yet, so I have no firsthand knowledge and HOPE I NEVER DO!!
