Need advice, first time water cooler.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello guys. Planning my first watercooling setup. Need input from you guys whether theres any clash in my current cart. Planning to cool a 2500k. Everything will be inside a Caselab STH10. 8 AP15 will be in P/P on the rad. There are 120mm fan holes at the bottom of the motherboard board compartment. Few questions.

What types of fittings do I need?
Any recommendations for UV lightings?
Any idea how I can mount the pump inside the motherboard compartment?
How do I chain all the fans together, which Modmytoys distribution PCB would you guys recommend for 8 fans?
Did I left out anything?

What types of fittings do I need?
If youre using 1/2" ID tubing, youll need 1/2" barbs/compression fittings. 1/2" is a popular choice

Any recommendations for UV lightings?
I dont like using dyes, but its always an option. Maybe look into getting UV tubing and a matching UV light, that way you dont taint your water
check out these "inverterless" cathode lights

Any idea how I can mount the pump inside the motherboard compartment?
I think that MCP35x2 pump can be mounted using the foam they give you. its a foam pad with adhesive on both sides so you can stick it to the bottom of the pump and then stick the other side wherever you want it to be mounted. Other than that youll need to maybe drill some mounting holes, but not sure if the MCP35x2 pump housing has mounting holes on it.

How do I chain all the fans together, which Modmytoys distribution PCB would you guys recommend for 8 fans?
maybe look at a high-wattage 8-channel fan controller. or any high-wattage fan controller and then use 3/4-pin splitter cables to link two fans into one channel

Did I left out anything?
dont think so
