First time watercooling, please help!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello there, and thank you for reading my thread smile.gif

I'm looking to set up my first watercooling loop, and would like some help from you guys.

Components i want to cool are my 2600k and my two 7950's

so far i have picked out this block for my GPU
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/321000385009

and this for my CPU
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/190727867181

I already have a 360 rad, and im probably going to pick up a cheap second-hand mc355+XSPC top.

I was thining of getting an ex 240 crossflow as the 360mm will be mounted at the rear of my case so tube routing will be easier. although i can drop the crossflow for a diff rad if needed of course.

can you guys please help me complete this loop and keep it as close to £300-350 as possible? i understand thats a tall order, but this is for Christmas so i cant push it too much redface.gif

i prefer ek for blocks because i would like to be able to see inside my loop, and i am planning on using mayhems dye biggrin.gif
although i have my preferences, im not too stubborn, so if it cant be done using ek, please feel free to recommend other blocks guys smile.gif

P.S i have 5 1200rpm fans, so they dont need to be included.

Edit: i would like to use the "EK-FC Bridge DUAL Parallel CSQ Plexi" too

What is it that you are asking?
from what I can see you are good to go buddy...
except you need a reservoir for that, for that I need to know what case are you going to use so that maybe I can suggest a res that suit the case smile.gif
other than that you just need some fittings (maybe some angled one) and a tubing

I dont know about you but I try not to pick up a second hand pump especially mcp355
am using the same pump and it runs pretty hot, hot pump = short longevity
im just too afraid that it will die and burn my components therefore I'm using dual mcp355, made a custom stand for it so there is some airflow going through it

Im suggesting to get a D5 if you can afford it smile.gif

Ok, sadly it is not possible for me to check all the items but:

If you are confident that all the barbs fit thumb.gif

This is just my opinion: You are not on a unlimited budget you might want to think about the Mosfet cooling...

For the rad side: With the 360 and the 240 one you should be good to go for two card and the CPU.
