New to WC and some advice needed... - Page 2

A 360 rad will do fine. Go push-pull with fans if you have the space.

Edit: Just noticed you have the Elysium. Definitely go push-pull. Alternatively, you could substitute a 480 rad for the 360; that should handle anything you can throw at it.

Thanks veblen, I'm just scavenging the web for parts and was looking at a 420 cause not sure if a 480 will fit in the top. But if you recon the 360 will be enough for cpu and 2xgpu's I'll prob go for that do to lower price. On overclock3D TTL was reviewing the Elysium case and thought a 480 would fit in the front, apparently Xigmatek will come out with fittings to place a rad in the front, don't know when though...

Will a Phobya DC12-400 800LPH 12V Compact Pump drive this system??

A rx360 would work for a cpu and 2 gpus but you might not see the best temps. The Elysium can fit a 420 up top which should be able to cool that setup well. Since you are in sweden the Phobya G-Changer 420 will probably be cheaper (via aquatuning) than XSPC rads.

Also, with an universal gpu block you are going to have a smaller impact on your loop than with a full-cover because you are only cooling the gpu core.

If you are worried about all the hassles of installing the heatsinks, I recommend using a Swiftech unisink which, in combination with a 80x15mm fan, cool great and are very easy to install (they don't sell them any more for the 460s unfortunately).

No experience with Jingway pumps but I know that Laing DDCs would handle that loop fine, i.e. the mcp35x.

Yes, the pump to rule them all:-)! Since I'm setting up my first system and need everything, I have to cut corners some where regarding costs and that's just the problem, where to cut... Should probably not skimp on the pump though...It's a full time job this to find the right combo of stuff for a first loop when on on a budget...I could just get a ready meal I'll guess but it's more fun putting it all together yourself and see what you come up with!
