Waste of time and money IMO, You would be better off getting a water cooling kit such as the XSPC kit and go from there, It's easy to do and not to mention you will get even better cooling with a possibility to expand later on and believe me you will want to.

I kinda like they bay drive holders as well or is that more for experienced builders?

No, you can fit the radiator inside of the case, you'll just have to install the fans on it first. As far as tube reservoirs go you can still add one if you like. It's more for looks than anything though because this kit has a reservoir built into the radiator. Having a bay reservoir will be the same thing essentially, just for looks. It's all up to you because it's your loop and you make it look as unique as you want.

go to the OP of this thread and check out some of the build logs for w/c ideas. Plenty of people have fit a 360 or a 420 rad in the top with push pull fans. There are some conditions for a 420 install, such as port placement and room for the fittings. But a 360 in push pull fan config will easily fit, at most you might have to trim a bit off the rear fan on the rad to clear the 8 pin. And a board like the Rive will have some issues with its heat sinks blocking that rear fan.

Here's an earlier link about rad install in the Switch

If you want later expansion, that Swiftech H220 is fine. Looks like an all-in-one cooler, but its expandable. You can add tubing and blocks.
By custom w/c kits, the XSPC 360 universal kit comes to mind - radiator, bay res w/ D5 variable pump, tubing, fittings, one of the best cpu blocks, the Raystorm.

Some of the online resellers that most people use are:

frozencpu.com
performance-pcs.com
xoxide.com
sidewindercomputers.com

if you're in canada, there is dazmode.com
microcenter somtimes has stuff for w/c at a steal

Thanks for all think info. But when I go to the sites I see a ton of different XSPC 360 kits. Any certain one in particular that I should look for. Reminder only going to do cpu and maybe in future 1 gpu.

And as far as the tube reservoirs i can just add one for looks and it won't be a problem? I reall like the looks of them
post #12455 of 13812
Well there are different ones. For instance a 360 kit refers to a 360 radiator or a radiator that fits 3 120mm fans. There are different radiators xspc sells too, the RX, RS, AX, and EX. I don't know all the specifics other than the AX has a aluminum frame and looks the best and the RX is the thicker radiator. The RS is a thinner (slimmer) radiator for when thats needed.

If your throwing the stuff in a switch 810 you should be able to fit a rx on the top and bottom with the both supporting push pull you would just need more then the included screws to secure the fans for the top because i think the rads only come with enough of the long screws for one side not both but the way it would mount in the switch you need long on both sides.

I recommend just looking at the swiftech h220, or watching some videos on youtube before further confusing yourself because if you just go on a website like frozencpu.com it can get very confusing.. what pump (d5 or ddc), size tubing, style of reservoir, what fittings... etc


tube reservoir or bay is really your choice.. a tube style one you will typically either need to mount it against a radiator with a mount that fits the fan holes or drill some holes into your case (switch you wouldn't need too) or get something that fits in the 5.25 bays as a mount. I recommend just clicking on the gallery view of photos and looking at some of the detailed watercooling builds then finding that members build log. Thats what I did for a few weeks to get a few for what I wanted.

I have the XSPC RX360 kit with the D5 vario pump along with xspc compression fittings. It comes as an entire kit fans and all. It fits great in my 810, no need for push pull unless you want more fans and more noise and overkill cooling for what your doing.

But on the h220 can I change the tubing and add another reservoir ?

Good to know about all the different XSPC types . When I am looking at them in the sites I do get very overwhelmed .
post #12458 of 13812
The h220 kit comes with a radiator that I believe is also the reservoir and the pump is built into the block. You can take it apart and use whatever tubing you like as long as it fits the fittings. There are videos from swiftech about the kit and how to take it apart and expand it. I've seen them on youtube and theres links to them on the official h220 thread on the watercooling seciton

It's really easy to get overwhelmed, there's an incredible plethora of water cooling gear available these days.

The best thing you can do to insure a happy outcome, is to take all the time you need, ask lots of questions, and not to be in a hurry.


There are pros and sometimes cons to each approach to setting up a water cooling rig.

The first thing you need to do is come up with a budget, and then be prepared to exceed it by at least 50%.

Then ask these folks who've built WC'd 810's what works within that budget.


A few caveats:

The 810 is one of the very best, out of the box, WC friendly cases going.

It is always a lot cheaper in the long run, to build initially with expansion in mind, than to have to re-plan, and redo it all later after you decide to add the GPU's.

You generally get what you pay for, in both quality and reliability . . . . cheaper stuff is usually cheaper for a reason.

There are a lot of choices that are strictly personal preferences, but others are about engineering, logic, and reason. . . . . learn to differentiate between them.


No doubt there's more, but that's a good start.

Do lots of homework before you click the first "add to cart" button, and you'll be on the right track.

Yes this is very true .

When doing your build do you all hook up everything and do all the installs then break it down and add the watercooling or do you go for gold and do it all at once?

Ya I been spending time reading forums and trying to watch as many videos as possible.
