btw Rognin you use the cpu block im getting, what are your thoughts on it?
post #13 of 38
Whatever coolant you use I would avoid EK nickle blocks as ppl have had flaking using everything from premix to just distilled so with out actualy getting the name of a product off of EK so you are covered (get them to put it in an email) though that would be no gaurentee

Koolance it is then or is there anything better then the 370?
post #15 of 38
can u change your tubing to this:
http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/Pr...-1m_18419.html

As tygon has a bad habit of clouding..

Trash the additives as they contain some form of glycol. Glycol does not play nice with injector type blocks... KL-370
Do you honestly want the color? You can go colored tubing instead and run straight distilled. If color is a must have, use something called a Mayhem dye.. as it has the best color production ive seen yet for a dye.

You need an aglecide, or an antimicrob tho...
Id recomend u go real silver:
http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/Si...ding_1173.html

As for your bay res, id get the 402X2 /w the front fix plate.
http://www.specialtech.co.uk/spshop/...pid-12873.html
Make sure you ASK FOR THE FRONT FIX PLATE!!!!
http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...roduct_id=1181
It should be free ... Well koolance said they will give them out until the end of this month.

There is also the 401X2
http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...roduct_id=1174

however lemme warn ya, you will be walking in uncharted waters. Meaning no one has gotten to play with one yet. So i only recommend that if ur willing to put some time into it. Because it could be a bleeding nightmare or a salvation to the bayres's.

Im more leaning on the former then the later.

I really dont trust bonded acrylic like i used to, so i try to stay away from that, but its just me.

if your saying the primochill ones are better then sure if it goes for the color then yeah ive always wanted to have blood run through the pc what pumps would you put in that 402x2? and what do you think about the 6990 blocks and the cpu block? I wanted to get some compression fittings for this build and im wondering which ones to go with?
post #17 of 38
gpu blocks, you cant go wrong with:

Swiftech, Koolance, Aqua Computers, Bitspower

In all honesty the difference is a meer few C's, and better VRM cooling.
That wont help you any in OCing, because overall general reductions on gpu cooling is usually HALF of what ur getting on air.

So get whatever u think is the blingest thats NOT EK.

And yea primochill was made for us from the getgo.
Tygon wasnt, it was made for something else we tried to adapt.
Tygon is heavy on plasticiser leach, and over time it gets disolved in your coolant.
Then your tubing starts to cloud, or you get that wierd waxy deposit on your res walls.

The thing about the 402X2 bay res is that u need that fix for it, or your gonna cry @ bleeding.

As for compressions, im very impartial to compressions... i prefer using silver plated barbs and clamps.

600 pound cpu block?? wow ok maybe not that much, but is the koolance 370 the absolute best or is there something better? hmm if I go for the 402x2 (and it looks like a really nice res btw) then with the gpu blocks and cpu block being koolance i might as well do it a koolance teamed build
