new watercooling setup

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I've been wanting to build my own custom water cooling system but I have a few questions. These are the parts I have so far, and if anyone could tell me if they are decent/ok/horrible that would be appreciated.

CPU block: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835108080

Pump: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835108082

Heatercore: http://www.autozone.com/servlet/UiBr...%7ENONE%7C%7EW

And also, if anyone could recommend my a good GPU block, resevoir and fans that would be really helpful. I remember reading on these forums that Antec tri cool fans were pretty good but I want you guy's opinion. Also and I know this is a stupid question but which brand of tubes is the best? Or is it all the same generic kind. And I read somewhere of people putting dual heatercores in their systems, what's that all about. Oh and last question (sorry) but would my thermaltake shark be big enough for it? Thanks.

All the parts you selected are top notch, in terms of GPU block I recommend the Maze 4 and for a res it all depends on what you want. You could get a single drive bay res or a dual, which I think would be your best bet, nonetheless look arround and see what fits your needs.
As for fans I recommend these: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811999122

Why? Because they can push up to 92CFM and come with adjustable fan speed nobs!

Oh and for tubing, depends but a lot of people get clear tygon tubing. If you go UV get the primo flex, thats what I have and it looks good and bends well.

i like these water blocks for your gpu, i had a 6800gt volt modded and my 7900gt oc and neither got more then 41c full load and idled at 32c, playing minor games would be at 36c

something liek this for your reservoir is good , the single drive bay ones arent good becasue if your not completely full or at a slight angle they will suck air into your lines , this guy or a similer design or a dual bay drive one works great

yeah get the maze 4

you might aswell spend the extra $10 and get a proper radiator so you can mound it on your case easily and screw in fans

you dont need a low profile gpu block becasue they both make the slot under it useless

its just a little smaller

and if your getting a res get like a 5.25 bay one

theres my 2 cents

I just got a Danger Den 5 1/4 single bay res yesterday it's pretty nice. You dont really have to use a res you can just use a T-line, thats what a lot of people prefer. I like these big Sunnons they cool very well they also have the 86cfm one's here and also the big Panaflo fans which are very nice fans also...If you have not gotten any tubing yet you might want to look at the 7/16 x 5/8 Masterkleer tubing they have at Danger Den, it's really nice and also cheap..You use it with regular 1/2 fittings...http://www.svc.com/kd1212pmb1-86.html
