First Time WC - Thoughts?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
First post and first WC build.

Basically what I am looking for is thoughts on if this setup makes any sense at all. I am not looking for the most extreme of OC, however would like to give myself some room to push.

CPU and GPU loop, potential for additional GPU in future.

Here we go:

CPU: XSPC Raystorm
GPU: EK-FC6970V2-EN
Radiator: XSPC EX360
Pump/Resevoir: XSPC Acrylic Dual 5.25" Bay Reservoir w/ MCP655
Tubing: Tygon 1/2" ID (3/4" OD) Clear Tubing
Fittings: XSPC G1/4" to 1/2" ID, 3/4" OD Compression Fitting Black Chrome
Fans: 3 x GT AP-15s
Misc: Distilled water, kill coil, Lian Li P-FN04B fan controller
Case: Corsair 800D

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I know the case has plenty of room for some slight modding and additional radiators, but I think what I got should be enough.

Thanks in advance.

I would get with bmavrck and get a 350 for $35 better deal IMO for the pump. And Ger a xspc top for it. 3/8 tubing instead of 1/2 unless u like the bulky look. Other Then that it looks good

Thanks. I will definitely look into the 350 option. Think I will stick with the 1/2" for now, shouldn't be a whole lot going on if I keep it simple.


I'll see if the fan controller has enough juice for my needs.
