Am I missing anything?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hello, as you can see this is my first post. I am building a computer and I want to push it, and push it hard. Obviously since im posting in this section I plan to water cool it. I have never water cooled before but I have a parts list that I think is complete. I'm just worried that it might not be haha.

Just so you know what im cooling, ill give you my whole system.

CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K Sandy Bridge 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155
PSU: KINGWIN Lazer LZ-1000 1000W Modular
Case: NZXT Phantom
Graphics Card (Primary): EVGA SuperClocked GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi)
Graphics Card (Bastard Card [will run my 3rd monitor]): EVGA GeForce 9500 GT
RAM: 8 GB G. Skill Ripjaw X Series
Mother Board: ASUS P8P67 PRO
Drives: 3x: 2 TB Hard Drives (will be in RAID 5)
1x: 64 GB SSD

And here is how I plan to do it:
GPU: Full cover water block
CPU: Swiftech Apogee XT
Pump/Reservoir: Koolance RP-980BK
Radiator: Black Ice Micro Dual 80mm Radiator
Northbridge?: chipset waterblock with barbs
Tubing: Tygon 2375 Ultra Chemical Resistant Tubing - 3/8" ID (1/2" OD)
Fittings: 3/8 x 1/2 Compression Fittings

Hows that for a parts list? I'm not sure how much tubing ill need though, and if you aren't familiar with the case it has grommets for the tubing to exit for the radiator.

Thank you for having the look, tell me if I missed something. =) Id also love to hear what you think about the system.

Any real reason for that.

Also how should I set this up?

Should I get some Ys and send 1 loop to the GPU, 1 to the CPU and then one to the northbridge?

Its seems like the CPU and the GPU should defiantly not be in the same loop am i right?

Its should all be in the same loop.

Silver kill coil is .999 silver so nothing grows in your loop.

Ill put together a loop cuz your pump is not very friendly either.

Whats your budget?

400 - 600 give or take.

Are the 5.25 bay pump/reservoirs not preferred? If not why?

I also read somewhere that removing my heat sinks voids my warranty is that true?

how do you install the silver coil? Is it just a line of silver? How does it go into the tubes securely?

The pump is really expensive, they are much cheaper and better options.

Silver coil just sits in the reservoir, its just a strip if silver.



XSPC Rasa block Best bang for the buck.
or
EK

rad for lower rpm fans
or
rad for higher rpm fans

Nice bay res/pump

the gpu block you listed

compression fittings youll need 8

10ft of tubing like this or the tygon you listed

I think i listed everything except fans.

Fans all depend on what type of radiator you want, high or low rpm.

Wow you just knocked a lot of money off my setup! haha

Do you know of any in bay monitoring systems? That's one thing that I really liked about that Koolance piece was the stats and flow rate.

What makes a fan considered low or high RPM? I went with the low RPM radiator because i assumed it would be quieter

1500 and under are low, anything higher i consider high.

If you got the RX rad the fans will be quiet but if you bought the black ice the fans would be louder, due to fpi (fins per inch)

Lower fpi use lower rpm fans.

Ill look for a bay like you want.
