WC Nub, need case + part suggestions. - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I would recommend against using EK for your blocks due to the bad rep they have.

For your CPU, get the Apogee HD or XSPC Raystorm. Those are the two current top performing blocks.

For the GPUs, get the MCW82.

I wouldn't get that 750 pump, because it's only really adequate for the stock kit. Get a proper pump like the MCP355 or 655.

Check out Sidewinder computers. They have some really good prices on watercooling components.

Make sure to get fittings.

Sorry for off topic, but how hot does the RAM on a graphics card get? How much better are full graphics card blocks compared to the universal blocks that only cover the GPU?

Thanks for the reminder on the bridge, almost let that one slip.

I'm looking around at the barbs and fittings and still pretty confused. I'm not finding many 7/16" barbs. Most of them are 1/4 to 1/2 or 1/4 to 3/8. One of the WC guides I read recommended against using 1/2" barbs on 7/16" tubing for noobs due to the fact that it is unlikely I will be able to get the tubing back on the barb without damaging it once removed. Should I just swap to 1/2" tubing instead?

Concerning the VRAM Heatsinks, I remember that copper oxidizes. Should I opt for some nickel coated vram heatsinks instead? My old Thermaltake DuOrb eventually oxidized and the cooling performance deteriorated, so I'm wondering if the same would take place here.

I'm going to have an updated post some point tonight. I checked with HK distributors and there is still no word on 810 availability in HK ; ;

Yes, 7/16 tubing on 1/2 barb will make a tight fit, which decreases the chance of leaking. I would recommend you to buy 7/16 barbs over 1/2 tubing, and also don't worry too much about damaging the tubing while trying to fit it over the barb because what you can do is dip the part of the tubing where it would be going onto the barb in some warm water (distilled or de-ionized), and then it would become softer/easier to be fitted. Also I wouldn't recommend you to use "used" tubing because the bit where it gets fitted over the barbs might be stretched, and by re-using them you are risking leaks.

Here's a link to 7/16 barbs from PPC: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=advanced_search_result&search_in_description=1&keyword=7%2F16+barb

For other store just search up key words like: "7/16 barb"

And for VRAM Heatsinks, you should't worry too much about it as oxidizing would take a while, which in the case where they do oxidize you can simply brush them with tomato ketchup/sauce and leave them over night in a slight acidic solution (e.g. 1 litre of distilled water with couple drops of lemon juice), and they should look like new ones the next day.

Hope this helps, and please excuse my English as I'm currently failing my English in school biggrin.gif
