Advice on my first loop

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey - after a new build and a few months of looking around, I've finally decided on what to all use for my loop.

Waterblock - Swiftech Apogee HD
GPU Block - EK-FC6970v2
GPU back - EK 6970v2
Pump - Swiftech MCP350
Pump Top - XSPC DDC Acetal
Rad - XSPC RX360
Res - FrozenQ Fusion 250ml UV purple
Tubing - Masterkleer UV reactive purple (3/8"id 1/2" od, or 1/2"id 3/4"od)
Fittings - alphacool compression fittings
Fan controller - Lamptron FC6


One thing I'm not sure on is the tubing size. I don't know if I should go with 1/2"od or 3/4"od. I think 3/4" looks pretty big but then again I think 1/2" looks a little small? Anyone have input? If I go with 3/4" od tubing then I'll have to get some different fittings. Also, I'm not too sure on how to set up my loop. Here is a rough sketch of what I have in mind

I'm think of going res>pump>rad>cpu>gpu>res

Does it look like I could use any 45 or 90 degree fittings?

Mmm - no responses yet and black friday sales have started - so I think I'm going to get everything besides my fittings and tubing.
