Home building everything (Case , loop , tubes , fittings) , need help with order...

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all ,
i am planning to make my order for my watercooling build.


I'm going for a full copper build.
Case = built with 22mm and 15mm copper tubing which will be working as my reservoir.

All the tubing will be copper tubing (10mm) as well.
So i don't need the fittings , i will have to make them myself , as 10mm fitting don't exist.

Now i have a few questions.
-Will the pump wich i am willing to order strong enough to support 4 radiators (or do i need 2?).

-12 fans for this (only push) , or 24 (push-pull)?

-As far as i can see , XSPC is a good brand , need some input on that.

-Does anyone maybe has some different suggestions?


I've done allot of thinking on this build.
So i think it will be doable.
4 360 radiators is my choice , because of the looks i am planning to achieve.

Thanks already for the answers.

Kind Regards from Belgium.

Well that's a lot of rad space for a CPU and GPU. I'd probably reccomend looking at the alphacool nexxxos UT60 rads if only because they have a spot for a drain port on the opposite side of the inlet/outlet.

The pump might be a bit weak at 600 lph. I'd suggest getting a D5/655 (alphacool vp655 for instance) or an MCP35/35x. I know for sure the 655 works for that much I had one with 3 rads (480 2 360s) and 3 blocks (cpu and 2 gpu) and it worked perfectly fine.

You definitely only need 12 fans for now given you're only cooling a CPU and GPU.

I don't know much about XSPC fans but some others to consider:

Noiseblockers (multiframes or e-loops)
Corsair
Scythe AP 15s
Noctuas
Cougar Vortex

Allright , thanks for your input.

The thing is ,
i can't find any decent shops in my neighborhood (neighbouring country's).
So XSPC is in the UK , wich means fast delivery of decent parts.
I would like to stick to one and thesame supplier , if anything fails , i only need to contact one.

And conserning the pump , i need to be able to make my own fittings , because they will be soldered to copper pipes.
Like for instance the D5 vario pump looks like a good option (1200l/minute) , but i cant make any fittings to fit this pump.
As it is only for rubber tubing.

Why are you set on a certain sized copper tubing? Is that the only size you can get? There's a bunch of retailers that ship to your area I thought? Does aquatuning not ship to belgium? Don't be worried to mix and match with different brands, in the end the likelihood of each one having a defect is nearly 0, so you will probably only have to deal with 1 company should something go bad.
