Could you check out this water cooling set up? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
So the barbs + clamps really are the most leak proof? The compression fittings just look so sweet, but I'm not that vain. I did forget to mention the tubing. I was planning on 1/2" ID tubing like this:

Feser Tube Active UV Hose - 1/2" ID (3/4"OD) Anti-Kink Tubing - UV Red

It was reported to be the only one that really looks "red" without adding colored coolant which I'm not going to do based on what everyone says about that junk build-up.

Of course the kill coil and PT Nuke with distilled - good reminders though from everyone.

So here would be the list -
XSPC RX360
Swiftech mcp 655 variable speed
AquagraFX waterblock for GTX 470 (GF100)
Heatkiller rev 3.0 for lga 1366
Scythe GT AP-15 - 1 more since I already have two
Black compression fittings
Feser UV red 1/2"ID 3/4" OD
kill coil
PT nuke
Dual bay reservoir:
Maybe the EK Dual Bay SPIN Reservoir w/ Flow Meter - Acetal. I don't want one with the pump in or attached to it. I can mount the pump in the chassis.

As for fittings, was thinking about:

Bitspower Matte Black Ultimate G 1/4 Thread 1/2" ID x 3/4" OD Rotary Compression Fitting (BP-MBRCPF-CC5)

I guess I need 2 for cpu, 2 for gpu, 2 for rad, 2 for res and 2 for pump?

Do you have a plan for draining your loop? Like a T-fitting or tubing with stopper coming off the gfx card?

Between barbs with clamps and compression, there is really no difference in being leak-proof, both are super secure.

As for buying the fittings, you'll need two for every radiator, reservoir, and block. With the pump you're looking at, you cannot put any fittings on it without using a pump top (customizing the pump). You just put the tubing over the pumps barbs, and I would suggest clamping it down.

As for drainage, Taylorsci's idea of the T-Fitting or an extra line of the GPU block with a stopper would be my best bet. If you are going to use that reservoir you mentioned you could also put a line off of there, many spots open for fittings!
