First WC Loop help! - Page 2

post #11 of 15
Thread Starter 
Ok thanks. I'm not quite sure what I want to do, someone PM'd me with a full loop parts list and it's about $330 which is pretty expensive! And I would just get white tubing probably, so no coloring! Thanks a lot for your input though!!

Go as big as your budget and case can accommodate because you won't regret it down the line, which will end up eating away MORE of your money fixing your mistakes!

Planning is everything

If you arent 100% sure what you want to do, I would stay away from a custom loop. Yes, it is very nice not having the GPU fans going all the time, but it gets addictive and very expensive. Had I gotten out the door with a total bill of 330, it would have been great. Your GPU blocks alone are going to run 100 bucks each.

You would almost have to switch GPU's to put them under water, IIRC nobody has made a block for the MSI Lightning 580's.

For CPU only, the Rasa RS240 kit is fine, RX240 kit even better. I'm using the RS240 kit with a 2500k, and it keeps my CPU plenty cool. I only have my CPU at 4.5ghz w/ 1.32v right now, and it only got up to 64C on the hottest core using IBT. I can OC to 4.8ghz if you want reference temps.

nah its alright. I just ordered the RS240 kit and some 7/16 tubing. I'm just going to use the normal rasa block right now to save money, and eventually I will probably upgrade to a full custom loop once I have the funds. Only thing i'm worried about is fitting the rs240 at the top of my case. I am not positive I have enough space. I guess I can just put it at the front if I HAVE to.
