What would I need for water cooling this. - Page 2

post #11 of 17
I'm pretty much on the same boat as you. I bought xspc rx 360 & rx 240 to cool my gtx 580 and my 2600k. Also got the mcp 655 adjustable speed pump, since its quieter than the mcp355.

Hydrocoppers are really restrictive. I have Koolance water blocks on my gtx 590s. Also Koolance generally cools NVIDIA cards better

The mcp355 is better than the mcp655 and is not that audible when the loop is bled properly. I have owned both pumps.
I have found it way easier to work with the mcp355 and a Xspc dual bay res meant for the mcp355 pump.It took about 30 min or less to bleed out the bubbles in my Fiances rig and a friends rig as well.

personally i would switch to a smaller case.
Wow I didn't even realize that, I changed it to a ASRock Extreme4 Gen3 P67.

Also, is the NZXT Phantom any good for water cooling?

Swap out the dvd drive you chose with the ASUS model.
Asus 24x DVD burner
That is one of the few DVD drives that are compatible with most re-writable media. (Memorex, etc). Excellent reviews.

Consider running a Corsair \\ Seasonic \\ Thermaltake PSU instead of Cougar.
Corsair Modular 850w PSU

There may be nothing wrong with the Cougar power supply, but if a Corsair is available at the same price, I should recommend it.

I would price shop a little too. I've seen the M4's a lot cheaper elsewhere. For a single 580 and 2500K, a 360 rad would be fine. I would get the corsair HX650 for a single GPU or the HX850 if you plan to add a 2nd card later. The raystorm block has high reviews for flow rates, look into that. For pumps/res, it really depends on the size of your case. if you can fit it, those cylindrical reservoirs are nice to look at, but if you dont have the space, look into getting an XSPC dual bay res with D5 pump mount, and a D5 pump. It will all mount into your 5.25" bays easily.
