Water Cooled Banchetto

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been working on my sig pc for a bit now, but I feel as though its looks are very lackluster in comparison to the performance this rig has. Even though right now the CPU is the 2500k I plan on going to Ivy Bridge and a z68 or future NB board when it becomes available.

My plans on changing this is to go with a new chassis and also go competely watercooling. I'm going to list out the changes to my configuration and would greatly appreciate any constructive comments on the components I've selected and advice on alternatives if it applies.

What I plan on taking out:
1. HAF X Case
2. H100 CPU cooling
3. both Twin Frozr cooling units

What I plan on adding:

Case: MicroCool Banchetto 101 Modular Chassis - Black Acrylic
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13...ml?tl=g1c9s928

CPU Block: Swiftech Apogee XT (Rev 2) High Performance CPU Waterblock
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12...tl=g30c323s835

Pump: Danger Den DD-CPX Pro 12V 3 Pin Powered Pump - 237 GPH (DD-CPX Pro)
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/75...tl=g30c107s153

Radiator: Black Ice GT Stealth 360 Radiator - Black
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/42...?tl=g30c95s161

360 Radiator Shroud: ??? <have not found one yet, also need to check with compatibility/size restrictions with station>

VGA Block: (2x) Danger Den Maze5 Video Card Liquid Cooling Block <haven't confirmed compatibility yet "Seems" to be a fit>
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/52...?tl=g30c87s143

VRAM Heatsinks: Enzotech BCC9 Memory Ramsinks
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/71...html?tl=g40c21

Reservoir: Phobya Balancer 250 Reservoir - Silver Nickel
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13...0c97s166#blank

Tubing: PrimoFlex Pro LRT Clear Tubing -3/8in. ID X 1/2in. OD <any advice here would be great>
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...ducts_id=23359

Compression/Barbs: Compression fittings for 3/8" ID 1/2" OD

Liquid and Misc: distilled/deonized water, anti-bio agent, silver coil

Lastly as a side project that will be done afterwards.. Since the cables will be in plain sight, I plan on sleeving everything visibile.. but I'll get into the details of that if/when I commit to this case/cooling solution.

You're gonna want to grab a couple of these little guys to stick on the memory. But full cover blocks are always better (and more expensive)

tech benches are cool

thanks, I knew I had to pickup some ram heatsinks for the vram. will add to the list.

Your also right about the full block vga cooler.. I'd much rather prefer that, however I can't find a vga block for my non referenced 560 ti cards.
