Watercooling Noob Needs Answers

post #1 of 32
Thread Starter 
I just built my first Pc in september and i want to get into watercooling. I am planning on doing an all custom cpu loop at first and getting the hang of this. All i am asking from anyone who reads this thread is help on deciding what parts i should buy. I have a list of the parts i can afford and i just want someone to help clarify if i have the right parts for the job i want. Some parts may look to be overkill but i an planning on watercooling gpus also in the future when i get more money. This is the list i have at the moment and i hope i did it right.

If you want the list with links just post below.

The parts list looks good. Im not sure what size rad can fit inside your 650D but if you plan on cooling the cpu and 2 gpus in the future, I would recommend getting at least 360mm worth of rad. The RX360 is a great rad.

I am going to get a 280mm on the top for my gpus and i will run the loops a little wierd but whatever. Also do the fittings look right? I am going to paint the fans i bought for this and I will put up pictures of it with everthing in place.
