First time watercooling - CPU Loop for 650d

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

Finally decided to go watercooling for my latest build. I originally ordered a Corsair H100 but had a million and 1 problems with it and sent it back for a refund.

I've done quite a bit of research already and have came up with the following parts:


YOUR BASKET
1 x EK Supreme HF CPU Waterblock - Nickel Acetal £55.99
1 x XSPC EX240 120mm Radiator - Black £39.98
1 x EK DCP 4.0 Pump (12v) £39.98
1 x EK Reservoir Combo DCP 4.0 £24.98
3 x Phobya Nano-G 12 PWM 1500rpm RED LED Case Fan £10.99 (£32.97)
1 x Masterkleer Hose Pack PVC 15,9/11mm (7/16ID) Clear 3.3m £10.88
2 x Mayhems X1 UV Red Premixed Watercooling Fluid 1L £7.99 (£15.98)
6 x EK PSC Compression Fitting 7/16 [16/12mm] - G1/4 - Black £3.50 (£21.00)
Total : £253.81 (includes shipping : £10.00).

I know that I may be skimping out slightly on the pump for example but will I really notice that much of a difference? I'm really at the peak of my budget already.

Also, I won't be buying the coolant from OCuK as they only have clear or UV (which I hate).

Opinions would be great and also let me know if I need anything else smile.gif

The pump is actually pretty decent and you wouldn't see any problems with using it.

Anyone else that responds to this will tell you not to use fluid / coolant and just use distilled water. I would also add kill coil and/or pt-nuke.
