Recommended res/pump and water blocks?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone, I’m new to overclock.net and new to building computers. I’m trying to build a new water cooled rig this month. I’ll be using it to play games on max settings and doing video editing and 3D work. I have a Corsair 800D case, with components to be water cooled: Chipset>CPU>GPU to be water cooled. so here are the questions...

Mounted reservoirs versus Bay drive reservoirs?

What water blocks do you recommend for a CPU and an ASUS Extreme III Black Edition?

What’s a good pump/reservoir setup that will keep my case inside looking like a clean set-up and still do a great job at cooling? I really like the bay drive setup for the Res and Pump, or should only be the Res be in the bay drive?

And is having my fill port located in the bay res with a drain pipe to be T/Y split right after my pump good or can you do a drain/fill in the same place?

Total noob, sorry for all the questions.

I have the drive bay pump/resevoir for my D5 and it does a nice job of keeping the inside clean and tidy. A fillport in my opinion isn't really necessary, i just leave a little bit of extra tubing going from the res to the blocks so I can push the Res out and add more water.

Kratthew, so could the one this guy posted pics up in this forum act as a fill/drain port then be an efficient way?

ah, so then a T/Y spliter for a drain tube after the pump would be a good idea then.

definitely, or some other inconspicuous spot where it isn't easily noticed yet conveniently accessed.
