Finishing buying watercooling parts, Need help on making order cheaper.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I getting ready to order my final parts for my rig. I just got the Magicool Extreme Triple 180mm Radiator in that I'm planning on putting in my RV02.

Basically I'm looking to cool my Crossfired 6950s and my CPU. I have a XSPC Rasa kit that I'm going to pull the CPU block, Pump/Resevoir Combo, and barbs from.

This is the cheapest I have gotten so far:

I'm looking to try to bring it down to the $125-$150 range if possible. I'm willing to use any kind of GPU block as long as it's an not a super old one. I'm not partial to full cover blocks and I'm willing to use those if I can find them cheaper. I just don't want to speed $500 just on cooling in my computer. thumb.gif

Rasa gpu block are about $50 each, lose the sli bridge and just loop your tubing. I am not sure about all those fittings either. Fill port is useless IMO, but to each their own. If that stop is for a drain line, go buy a brass plug at hardware store. Swivel 90 barbs?? not sure why you need those. It can be knocked down, but you need to figure out what fittings you need compared to which ones you want.

You know those universal VGA blocks only cover the chip itself and leave your VRAM and VRMs uncooled, right?
