Best Water Cooling Parts ???

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I will really appreciate all the help I get. I want to overclock my i7 990x CPU and want to water cool it.
I probably overclock the CPU to 4.5GHz 24 hours 7 days a week I maybe will water cool my graphics card as well which is a Nvidia GTX 590. So if you can tell me the following BEST parts that will keep my CPU and GPU very very cool. I would really appreciate it also money is not a issue I just need the best in the following parts.

BEST: 360mm Radiator
BEST: Fans to go with the above radiator you chosen
BEST: Water Block ( Plus a good thermal paste to go with the water block )
BEST: Pump
BEST: Reservoir ( I also don’t mind if it’s a pump/res combo )

Radiator - Black Ice GT Xtreme 360mm

Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1850RPM 120mm fans

The EK Supreme HF is good, but there are a number of other's that are very reliable as well.

You shouldn't need more than the Laing D5 655 1200LP/H, this will also allow for you to add pretty much everything else into your loop with no degrading of flow.

Res is your choice, I like the FrozenQ T-Cell res, your tastes may differ.

The best fittings are Bitspower (especially compression fittings) and as for piping go for something reasonable, not the cheapest you can find.

you'll also want a bottle of PT Nuke and some distilled water. Don't use colour additives, use coloured pipes instead (the waterblocks act as a filter and gunk up)

CPU block-Aqua Kryos or KL 370 with PK-1

Pump D5 with an EK top
Reservoirs- I like EK, but then again I have a few of them

Aqua blocks are overpriced crap...

Maybe not crap, but certainly overpriced by a MILE!

Aqua quality is much better than EK and their blocks perform very well.

OK so lets go through this

The EK is a half a degree behind yet £10 cheaper... It's just not worth the money.,

After RMA'ing five nickel EK blocks, I will pay a little more.
