Hey guys, I'm planning my first water cooling loop and I'd like to find out if the parts I've picked will work well together in the Switch. I've read through a ton of threads about water cooling but I still feel a little lost trying to pick parts. I appreciate any and all advice you can give me.


I would HIGHLY recommend the BitFenix Hydra Pro fan controller, for the money you won't find better! I spent a great deal of time agonizing over the "perfect" FC, and it turns out the $30-35 Hydra Pro was it! Their "SofTouch" finish is a perfect match for the black trim on the Switch 810, and the use of the sliders instead of dials gives a much "sleeker" look that doesn't ruin the case lines, IMO.


Also, if I may make a suggestion?
Get the Alphacool XT45 420 Radiator, and the Raystorm RX240 or EX240 kit. Fitting a 420 up top that is ~55mm-thick or less is pretty easy, even with push-pull fans, and the Alphacool is fantastic! Alternatively, you could do what I did and use an EX420 up top and the UT60 240 in the bottom; it's an EXCELLENT combination, no worries about space!
Switching to the Raystorm EX420 kit from the one you have now would actually be cheaper, I believe, yet give you a radiator that is actually SLIGHTLY bigger than a 480 in terms of cooling surface!

I have the same fans, and honestly they are the best. They are swiftechs version of the AP 15s. thumb.gif

Got mine all set up, just waiting for a few finishing touches (led's, fan splitters, etc.) but I'm loving this case. Not much bigger than my Cosmos S but much better use of space obviously and soooo much easier to work in.
