What to get to Water Cool these?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, basically for those who have seen my post in the Intel-General forum know that I am in the Mid-Stages of planning my Ivy Bridge build.

I would like to go Water Cooling and would like some help on what to get to cool the components/setting things up. The things I am going to be Water Cooling are:

I7 3770K
2x Radeon HD 7950's in Crossfire

The First thing I mainly need help with is what would be the best CPU Water block to get and what brand of GPU full-cover Block to get (7950 not released yet and I don't know if there are any Water blocks available for it yet either).

The second thing for me to consider what would be the Radiators I need to get to be able to cool the components while under an OC. This should help me to also decide if I Should stick with going for the 690 II Advanced as my case or if I should go for another.

I didn't mention this in my other post, but I need to keep the price of the Water Cooling components under $1000 (Computer Peripherals might needed to be included in that price too) and $2000 to spend on maybe some peripherals otherwise the main guts of the computer.

Another question:
I have also been thinking about the reservoir and the pump... should the pump be at the very bottom of the loop and be connected directly to the reservoir? And since how I may be looking to get a Laing D5 pump, which way is the flow supposed to go? From the GPU's to the pump to the res? Or is it supposed to be another way? Sorry for the stupid questions, Never been in Water Cooling before... headscratch.gif

Thanks for the help everyone! I'll try to give everyone who helps +Rep too. biggrin.gif

definitely is

reservoir >pump > radiator > cpu > gpu > reservoir thumb.gif

since u are using CM690, external mount is best for u if u plan to add more Rads.

Thanks for your help. Actually I might end up going for the CaseLabs Magnum M8. Still don't know yet, but I'll get there eventually
