Can you guys take a look at it and confirm that everything I need is in it? BTW: I will be using my own fans.
Also, will the radiator fit in the Trooper?

You have high flow radiator and low flow CPU block..... just think one more time before ordering...

Looks like the above

Thanks guys!

Can you suggest me a fluid that is sold at performance-pcs instead? I don't wanna pay shipping twice haha.
Also, I don't mind about the dye. Clear is fine.

How much is this going to matter? And would you suggest changing the radiator or the block? What block or radiator can you suggest?



Finally, I was thinking about getting the crossflow EX240. Would that still fit the trooper? And does cross-flow affect performance?

Well, that will increase pressure on pump and decrease flow, not much... but why to order parts that not stick together, I would recommend go for XSPC RayStorm CPU WaterBlock, one of the best High flow CPU Block.
If you want keep Apogee, look for low flow radiators.

Thank you everyone for the feedback! I don't want to have regrets about my first water cooling experience.

After your feedback and changing my mind about my reservoir, I now have an updated setup.
=> Changed the res(changed my mind), and the pump(dont need threads on the pump anymore).
=> Got coolant without dye. (after feedback)
=> Got 6 fittings instead of 8 due to new pump setup.
=> Changed for a Raystorm waterblock (after feedback)
=> Changed for a cross-flow radiator. ( I think it will look better)
331

I think I'm ready to order smile.gif
Any other comments?

I would love to see what you are thinking on the tubing route for your setup i have basically the same kit but with the reg ex240 and the old xspc D5 dual by res. Also on a side note for clear coolant water is king and cheep all you would have to add is a kill coil or another biocide and you would be good to go with a cheep gallon of distilled water. No gunk no fuss and cheep as hell!

Thank you for the link, will read.

I have two routes planned. I'll draw them on some generic trooper picture...
My first one will be used until I buy a liquid cooled graphic cards.
480

And this second route will be used when I get a liquid-cooled GPU
480

Finally, this is what I would do if I had the regular EX240
480

I can't see the list as I'm at work, but there is nothing wrong with the rad and CPU block you had. All rads are lower flowing than CPU blocks. As for coolant if you don't care if has dye, then just get distilled water and a kill coil. Distilled is cheaper and out performs any coolant for temps, the kill coil will keep anything from growing in your loop. One more plus is you can get distilled at any grocery store. As long as you don't have aluminum in your loop you don't really need to worry about corrosion I don't know what CPU you have but Raystorm is just about the best you can get for 1155/1156 for the money, but there are others that perform better on 2011/1366. One more thing, I would consider getting the D5 that is threaded incase you ever want to use any fitting for the future, you'll need to use clams if you just use the stock bards on it.

Thank you for your input!
The reason I didn't get the threaded D5 is that I am getting a Dual-Bay XS-PC reservoir with a D5 back-mount. All my connections will be made using Swiftech Lok-Seal compression fittings. I don't trust barbs and I think compression fittings look way cooler.

Setups with no reservoir-integrated pump do not interest me really, so I see no reason to buy a threaded D5.

After reading indyrocker's link, I decided to go with distilled water + Hydrex.

I guess I shouldn't have made it sound like there is a big difference, but most of the blocks out today perform very close to each other.
