planning my first liquid setup =)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I'm about to purchase a case-labs M8 and going to throw my first WC setup into it.

I've tried to do a lot of research on this, please rate what I have planned and your suggestions are welcome

Code:
[Pump]
Swiftech MCP655 - $79.99 SVC


[RAD]
XSPC RX360 - $86.99 SVC
XSPC RS360 - $49.99 SVC


[RES]
EK-Multioption RES X2 - 250 Basic - 49.95 P-PCs


[CPU Block]
EK-Supreme-HF-AC $72.99 P-PCs


[GPU Block]
EK-FC470 GTX-NK-AC  - $114.95 P-PCs


[Memory Block]
???


[Tubing]
PrimoFlex Pro LRT White Tubing $32.50 (20Ft) Amazon
ID 1/2 | OD 3/4


Compressoin Fittings
12x BitsPower 1/2" ID 3/4" OD Compression Fitting G1/4" - $6.99 SVC
4x 45 degree adaptor - ?
2x 90 degree adaptor - ?
Flow Order:
Res > Pump > RX360 > CPU > RS360 > GPU > Res

If there are any cheaper ways to go about this ,that would be appreciated.
Please note, I'm running my CPU @ 5.0GHz right now, plan to SLI but not OC my video cards.

you realize they make compression fittings that automatically bend 45 and 90 degress. Go to frozenCPU. Make sure that your VGA board is a reference board otherwise that block isn't going to fit. I'd recommend the 35x pump. It might have a lesser flow rate but it has a lot more head room (which I think is more beneficial). Are you getting both rads or just one? Also don't forget some kill coil or PT nuke

Did not realize that. Thank you!

Yes, my card is made by EVGA and has a reference board design

I'd recommend the 35x pump. It might have a lesser flow rate but it has a lot more head room (which I think is more beneficial).
http://www.xoxide.com/swiftech-mcp35x-pump.html $93.95. Sounds good.

Are you getting both rads or just one?
Both

Also don't forget some kill coil or PT nuke
I forgot to list the Nuke, my mistake.
Thank you for your suggestions. Anyone know how to make it a bit cheaper? =\\
