yeah I wanna go for more of a custom kit, I'm obviously gunna need to do research on my part for when i put the stuff together. So far all I know for sure is I want white tubing which is completely insignificant. Would be so much easier to talk about this on vent rather than posting. So whats the deal with tubing sizes what size is going to be right for me.

well, besides the red vs green fanism tubing size really doesnt matter until u go lower then 3/8ths ID.

The wall is what your more after.
Having a thicker wall allows better bends.

The key thing is whatever you start off on, you have to keep with it.
So if your going 3/8ths, it means u must keep 3/8ths.
Otherwise your barb collection becomes all funky.

1/2 is typically what we recomend, because its the largest diameter we can go on G1/4.
And we have this mentality that bigger is always better..
*man grunt*

Its not true.. but dont tell my ego that.

Fittings i recommend Bitspower compression fittings (1/2ID-inner diameter, 3/4OD-outter diameter) and tubes i recommend buy the primochill ones (1/2 ID-inner diameter, 3/4OD-outter diameter).

I feel you can get more if u custom it, and have it only cost a bit more.

Yeah u wont get all those fancy manuals... but trust me, if watercooling is as difficult as people think, it wouldnt of progressed to what it is now.
I, however, can. and DO.

The rasa kit is a great beginner kit. It's a great way to 'test the waters', so to speak.

The OCN turned me onto it for my first kit and then right after I went and built a whole custom loop for a buddy's rig. Spent about 500 or so on his parts and for all intent and purpose, they're essentially doing the same job. Sure his will cool a marginal amount better (read a few degrees), but for the price you pay for the rasa kit, it really can't be beat.

I would recommend for a first time water cooling setup, go with the rasa kit. Everything you need is included and you don't have to worry about the little details. Of course, what others say is true about the hosing. It could be better. I bought myself some primochill UV green and just replaced the stock fans that were included with my already owned gentle typhoon ap-15s. Bought a kill-coil and some pt nuke and I was up and running within hours.

For some reason I dont want to go with a kit. I want a tub res for sure and a triple rad. I have 2 gentle typhoons already so I can pick up another. Ill post the parts a friend of mine is going to recommend so you guys can pick it apart. Just wanna get the best system I can.
post #20 of 25
Wow this thread is a mess.

Can I ask, what Gentle Typhoons do you have? fast ones? (AP-15 +)

If so, the best rad on the market for you will be a hardware labs black ice GT extreme 360. If you want slower more silent, then it will probably be a the black ice SR1 360.

Pump: The best pump on the market being sold as a liquid cooling pump for PCs, is the swiftech MCP35x The reason for that is generally what people aim for when liquid cooling is 1GPM. The MCP35x has the highest pressure at that flow of any computer pump I know of. It easily surpasses all the D5 pumps I have seen. Also, you have the option to PWM control it off the mobo, so you can run it quite silently.

Res: Pick what you like, 800D has enough space for about any res you can imagine just not that much space for radiators : /

Tubing: Whatever you like, it doesn't make a difference apart from looks and it's frankly all cheap. Only think I would say, go for the thicker walled tubing instead of the thinner, so that's 3/8" ID 5/8" OD or 1/2" ID 3/4" OD instead of 3/8" ID 1/2" OD or 1/2" ID 5/8" OD.

For the blocks, the best blocks I have seen performance wise are the Swiftech apogee XT (no difference in performance from rev 1 to rev 2 but the rev 2 pressure drop is a lot less meaning you'll get a higher flow), the XSPC Rasa waterblock and the EK CPU block (since people are moaning about EK at the moment, best get the full copper version to make them happy).

As for the GPU block, I know they say the EK blocks have flaking issues, but from everything I have seen they're still the best, just don't get the nickel versions...
