first time water cooling few questions

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys so I want to get the nzxt switch 810 and water cool the build in my sig I want good performance but to be as cheap.as.possible and upgrade later on. I was thinking about getting an ek 7950 ( which I have now I didn't update my sig yet) block and the xspc rs360 kit
Then I would just need some.compression fittings etc.

What do u guys think? Any suggestions on what you would do?

Lastly I kinda wanted to have purple tubes but read that colored coolant will make everything dirty. I however can.not find any purple tubes. Is there any safe good colored coolant?

Or maybe I.should go with the rx360 or rx360 extreme? What will be the performance difference?

Get the RX360 kit, its better than the RS360 as you will be adding a 7950 into the loop, the RX will handle it with decent temps. Later on you could always add a RX240 down the bottom of the 810 fpr even more cooling!

I bought a RX360 kit some time ago and have never looked back...buying a new CPU waterblock...new fittings and tubing, GPU waterblock...going to be buying a new pump & reservoir soon too!

I was hesitant about going watercooled by the sheer volume of different barbs & fittings available and wasn't sure on what parts I would need to make my loop but now I would be able to make a custom loop for a new rig without any problems.

If you have the space in your case, go for the RX360, especially if you are going to be adding in your GPU. If the added width is going to be too much, the go with the RS360.

I don't know anyone who makes purple tubing, but I'd be hesitant to get purple coolant! You could always get some white tubing and go with UV lighitng in your case to make it look purple right?!

Thanks guys! Well I am pretty sure the rx360 will fit in the top if my 810 but will it fit with push pull ?

And yeah that's a good idea but does anyone know for sure if white with purple led would work or maybe even black or a certain blue tubing?
