I'm already saving for my loop biggrin.gif

you won't regret the Raystorm choice biggrin.gif I love mine! it provides good temps and also tends to look awesome with acrylic bracket and LEDs (2 of them come standard). MCP35x is a very decent choice with the huge head pressure it gives, however for Raystorm even a standard D5 works great. I use a D5 Strong here at 24V, that coupled with 2x 670 Razor blocks and RX240+EX360 rads. can't complain, this setup performs awesome (if not for my hot room ambient temps) and looks amazing too biggrin.gif

Don't go with RS series rads, they are cheap and thin with a high fins count, that means you will NEED high speed fans for them and that means hella loud setup. Take RX (very thick, low FPI count at 8) or EX (half the thickness, FPI count in teens). I don't know the latest AX series, not sure what it provides.

A friendly advice, flush the XSPC rads before use! I failed to do this and RX rad was spilling some whitish stuff into the loop during initial use ... also never go wtih Primochill's Primoflex LRT tubing, it plasticizes like hell (ask me how I know), if you want colored tubing (e.g. UV reactive) then go with (German) Feser UV Active or new (they seem to fix the problem) Primochill's Advanced LRT (only UV Blue at the moment, other colors are solid and non-UV reactive).

I would definitely go with reservoir above the pump, even though you could run some setups without a res, it's highly recommended to have a fill port right above the pump, so it never runs dry (it damages the pump after a few uses on dry air).

good luck!thumb.gif

IDK what to get though. My budget would be $125-$225. I value the opinions in the thread, so throw some ideas out for me.

Maximus V Gene or Sabertooth Z77

I like only those 2 boards, maybe if you to the higher priced, the EVGA board is good too.

Well stickg1, I own a Sabertooth and they are not bad boards - Stable with good performance and 5 year Warranty. But if you want something to get better OCing with, then I'd recommend the MSI MPower. I have tried both, still have the Sabertooth, but would go with the MPower if I could do it over as it ended up a better benching and OCing board.

We can all help. When it was like 3 of us who delidded, it was hard for people to get into it because there wasn't much help. Now, so many of us are here to help that it'll be easier. Don't think it's easy and definitely don't be careless! Like OCing, patience is key to delidding!

It is scary and that is because there is a risk, but most good things in life that are worth a dam have risk! And the results are worth it to all of us on here who have done it. Great temps. thumb.gif

Plus, as Swag has noted, we have a ton of good info on how to do it right and lots of support if/when you have any questions. So you are not alone. smile.gif

Read up on the info we have collected on the first page. Look at a video or two. Then take your time. It ends up much easier than it looks once you do it. And the second time (or more) is so easy after the first time.

Raystorm is meh. you kinda paid more money for less performance US prices wise.

raystorm is a good deal if u just want it and no more..

If you want more not so great.

I won't get a kit...I'll buy stuff in batches to save on shipping/tax.

Not sure on the rad, but I like the look of the Monsta 80mm thick one. And for the high fpi thing, I wanna get the maximum cooling potential, I don't care for noise and I already got two 220cfm fans man. I'm a hardcore bencher wink.gif

That's the block I looked at a while back, I think I'll be getting that one honestly.

Not sure on the block choice or rad choice or nothing really...I want the absolute best and thickest rad, perhaps black ice gtx stuff or the thickest/heaviest chunk of copper available.
I wanna make it as cheap as possible, but the best performing stuff, and noise is not a concern.

The power it packs in such a small size is amazing too. Also, I've called Asus many times pertaining my board and everything, they even shipped me out a new board first before I shipped mine back!

I haven't been an asrock fan either, I do want to try an OC Formula but that is the only asrock board to date I would pay money for. I have an mvg too, great board but it really is just a bit too small, can't use a ram fan since the clips touch the back of the gpu, get a big aircooler & it's like playing tetris trying to get a gpu & heatsink in the same place at the same time...
I've killed my share of MSI boards, they do take a pretty good beating before I win. The mpower has been great so far.

I forgot to add Gigabyte z77 in there, playing on a z77 ud3h right now. Good board so far, just wish the clear cmos button was a bit further away from the reset & it had at least 1more USB port that doesn't use the VIA controller.
