Need help finalizing watercooling setup

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
System Specs:

CPU - i7-2600k
Motherboard - Asus Z68 pro
Ram - Gskill Sniper 1866 8gb
HSF - Hyper 212 evo Corsair H80
HDD - Spinpoint 1tb HDD Hd103sj x2
SSD - Crucial M4 128gb
PSU - XFX PRO750W XXX
GPU - Gigabyte 6850 OC
Case - Cooler Master Storm Scout

Budget: set out with 150 max, stretching to 200 now

Need to confirm couple things before i make my purchase:


1. RX240 KIT from jabtech

2. 7 feet of PrimoFlex Pro LRT UV Red Tubing - 7/16in. ID X 5/8in. OD Read a couple posts about the stock tubing not being good enough, how is this tubing?

3. Fans : I can't understand which ones to pick, Push/pull with shroud is the best setup right? And from what i understand yate loons are the ones to get, so if i get 4 of those. Which yate loons should i get?

My understanding is that lower rpm fans are better with the rx240. And do i want closed or open corner fan?

Fan RPM CFM DBA
YATE LOON 120mm Case Fan - D12SL-12 1350 47 28
YATE LOON 120mm Case Fan - D12SM-12 - Medium Speed 1650 70.5 33
YATE LOON 120mm Case Fan - D12SL-12C Low Speed 1300 44.5 20.8
YATE LOON 120mm Case Fan - D12SH-12 - High Speed 2200 88 40
YATE LOON 120mm Case Fan - D12SM-12C Medium Speed 1800 62 28.5


Which of these should i pick or are there some others i should be considering? Do you recommend any specific shrouds, if applicable?

4. Did not find any kill coil or liquids on jabtech to prevent algae growth etc., recommendations?

5. Know any guides to doing this in a cooler master scout? Saw one on the front page but am not sure if i can fit a rx240 with push/pull where he put the rs240 with only push.

6. am i missing anything? first time going watercooling, let me know of even the smallest things like barbs etc.
Thanks!

As for everything you have said it sounds like you have done your research and dont really need much guidance

As for fans if you look around for reviews you will see that shrouds etc all dont really make much difference, just get a medium speed fan out of those you listed that best fits your budget and you will be fine

As for fitting in your case I had one of thoses before and dont remember having any room to move in it, will have a quick look around then get back to you

EDIT: Looking here http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v250/kaneda13/P1040344.jpg its not gonne fit up top with push pull

Looks really cramped in that case, have you considered getting something bigger?

If not the xspc kit I got came with 4 sliver brackets I used to mount a 360 rad on the back of my haf x you could use them and stick it on the back...
