Need recco's

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I'm looking for a few kind souls to help... I'm a noob to water cooling, and I read the beginners guide, but I don't feel like I should build my own complete system yet. I'm wanting a reccommendation for a good pre-built kit that I can add GPU waterblocks to or for someone to recommend parts (maybe).

It will need to be fore lga 1366, and I'd like to be able to water cool two EVGA GTX 560's in the future.

Thanks for any help!

It comes with everything. If you add another waterblock, you will need barbs. You can change the tubing to whatever color you want as long as it's 1/2ID... iirc it is 1/2ID. Just run distilled water and a biocide.

In plans for one of my future rigs I had planned on going with Dual 560 Ti's in SLI, and watercooled ofc.

I was planning on using these but scratched the idea in favor of a Hydro Copper 2 580. Or 590. I'm not sure yet.

Hey, XSPC is definetely a great choice for a starter kit. You may want to consider some angled or rotary fittings in case you have any sharp turns etc. Also make sure to stick with rx series not rs. And I highly recommend 7/16 id tubing on 1/2 in barbs. It provides a much tighter seal preventing chances of leaks.
Best of luck

As another happy user of the rasa 750 kit, def go with that. I upgraded to some gentle typhoon ap-15 fans and some primochill tubing. Pretty awesome price for a pretty awesome beginner kit.
