Recommendations for SLI water cooled build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I bought the Cooler Master HAF 932 case and I'm going to SLI two 570 GTX. I also have the ASRock Z68 Extreme 4 Gen 3 motherboard which is LGA 1155 compatible.

I built a computer 5 years ago and I got the danger den water pump with car radiator and it was good but should I do it again?

I need waterblocks for cpu and two gpus and how many radiators will i need? should i get a reservoir this time?

you can gat away with a thick 360 rad in the top

but if you are really going to be OC both GPUs and CPU

i would go with 360 + 120 rad

the mane thing to know is 120 Rad pure block and and 240 Rad for CPU
so you have 2 gpus the 120+120 and 1 cpu so that is another 240
so too get good temps 480 rad is best

I would definitely get one 360 rad. That should give you a respectable delta. You can always add another 120 or 240 rad if you feel you want more cooling. I'm a huge fan of Laing d5 pumps personally. They're quiet, and they get the job done. As far as a reservoir goes, you technically don't "need" one, but they certainly make bleeding the loop much easier. I recommend the EK cylinders...never done me wrong.

Waterblocks really come down to personal preference IMO. I stay away from nickle plated blocks all together, as it seems the plating breaks down on darn near all of them.

So the Danger Den D5 again with a 360 radiator for the two GPUs and a 120 for the CPU?

Swiftech Apogee XT Extreme

EK FC580 GTX

which brand radiator should I use and which reservoir? I've been seeing people use these EK PSC Fittings. Are they worth it? They look cool.

Should I choose different waterblocks? Which brand tubing?
