Which way to go?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Im looking into getting started with a full kit. Want to set up cooling on ram, video card, north bridge, VRM, and cpu.

Have no idea whats good and whats not, and what all do I need? include tools and supplies.
System specs are in my signature.

Thanks guys,
CasperGS

Hey man

Ok, memory is pointless for watercooling, go with either a full motherboard block if you can find one or do the northbridge and southbridge. GPU you'll just need to have a look for a compatible block on.


Actually, looking at your video card, do you do gaming, if so I would replace the GPU prior to getting a water loop. Dropping that card under water is a complete waste of time :S

If you wanted to do your CPU and motherboard, something like a 360mm black ice GT xtreme, a laing d5 pump (the 655 would be good) along with a EK supreme HF copper or the heatkiller would be cool. You can also consider just going with the RASA RX360 kit or something, don't go with the RS kit if you're planning to cool everything you mentioned.

This covers the cpu, what do i need to do to get the board? If you could link site with the parts would be cool. Including tanks and all, I have no idea and dont want to purchase something and be missing a part.

Thanks for all the help.

I gues a start kit that can be expanded for later mobo's and gpu, realize that the mobo i got doesnt really need that kind of a setup.

thanks

Only the kill coil or the biocide, you don't need both.

I'd also get another video card "worth" water cooling. You can spend upwards of 500$ in water cooling gear. Might as well put something that is equally worth it under the blocks... =P

To be honest with you, in your shoes, I would get the RASA kit and just do the CPU for now. Every motherboard is going to require a different block, from what I understand. IF you are new to water cooling, I would get something like what I linked below. It will get you familiar with how it all works, leave you with a pump and rad that allows you to add on later if you do go mobo/gpu, etc, and has great parts for your CPU loop.

Depending on what GPU you add, you can always add more radiator later to this, a GPU block, and a mobo block and it will be solid. The only thing I cant speak for is radiator sizes and what your case will fit and how much radiator would be required for a GPU loop since you dont know which GPU you will have later.
