Going for Watercooling!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello

Some here might have seen that ive ordered a new pc with 800D case.
And ive also decided to WC it. I do not have experience with that so id like to get help with setup for CPU and GPU. I also wonder if its better to buy a EVGA Hydrocopper or buy a GPU block seperatly.

Thx alot for help
Really love how helpfull people are here.

For a first timer, I would recommend a Rasa RX (or RS if you can't fit a thicker rad)360. Simple all in one solution that isn't a self contained kit (H80 or so), so you can personalize it.

I would go with the Hydrocopper, the block is already attached, and you don't have to worry about getting a non-ref design that can't support a block, or finding a block for it, so on and so forth.

If you get the Rasa kit, get better tubing, and get extra fittings for your videocard if it doesn't come with it (and even if it does, doesn't hurt to have extra).

I'm kind of scatterbrained...I know what I want to say but sometimes it comes out...different...then it sounded in my head. If you need me to explain more, feel free to ask.

For good tutorials on watercooling, watch some Dazmode on youtube. Can be a little hard to understand at times, but he's very informative.

For a good video concerning fittings, check out this video:

So the pump and everything in that "kit" is enough for GPU+CPU?

From everything I've been told, a RS or RX 360 kit is indeed enough for one CPU and 1 GPU.

If you SLI or whatnot, you should add another pump and/or rad, which is beyond what you're wanting to do (for now).
