WC Setup? New to liquid cooling

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm currently in the research stage and I've been reading other people's setups from both here and XS.
I plan to get this during Christmas (if I can get it approved). But with the NCIX Black Friday deal, I might try to convince my parents to let me get it now.

So here's the setup:
x1 Swiftech MCRES-MICRO HI-FLOW Water Cooling Reservoir NCIX 22.80 DirectCanada (DCC) 22.00
x1 Danger Den D-5 12V NCIX 83.30 DCC 75.60
x1 HW Labs Black Ice GT Stealth 240 NCIX 64.50 DCC 54.00
x2 NMB-MAT (Panaflo) FBA12GL1A NCIX 24.50 DCC 17.64
x1 Swiftech APOGEE NCIX 57.34 DCC 51.70
x1 CLEARFLEX60 Tubing 1/2IN ID 7/8IN OD 10 Feet NCIX 9.99
Distilled Water + Some Additive (Recommendations, Zerex?) Canadian Tire

Total:
NCIX (+S&H, tax, insurance) = $ 338.47 CAD
DCC (+S&H, tax, insurance)= $ 295.37 CAD (prices from DCC, but pricematch for NCIX. So the S&H, tax, insurance are the same as NCIX)

This will be used to cool the rig in my sig.

Update 1:
I also plan on using either the Swiftech Radbox or Thermochill P120.2 Shroud for Dual 120MM Fans to hold up the rad.

Considering use of Masterkleer Pvc Tubing 7/16IN ID 5/9IN OD 10 Feet

Everything looks great cant think of anything you could change.
Zerex will work with additive but I have had better luck with antifreeze (plus its lime green, a little nicer than yellow, or purple if u get the expensive kind).

Looks good.You've done your home work.....How are you planning on hanging your rad? If you are hanging it on the back you might want to look at a Swiftech Rad-Box... Swiftech MCB-120 Black 120mm Radbox Kit

Oh dang, forgot to include that in the list.

Yea, I was looking at either getting the Radbox or this:
Thermochill P120.2 Shroud for Dual 120MM Fans
I'm assuming it should fit even though it's not a P120.2

I like that Thermochill one to ...I have never used one but I would guess that it would fit, You might have to mod it a bit may-be.....

I guess I'll have to check out the dimensions between the rad and the shroud.

By the way, thanks for the heads up about the setup.

Your very Welcome.... Be sure to read the stickies on how to leak test, I'm sure you probably have already, but I had to say it......If you need any help feel free to ask away we will be glad to help if we can....

Yup, already read all the stickies...some more than once.
Just gotta buy the stuff and build it. *crosses fingers, to get it approved*

By the way, how's the Masterkleer tubing that you use? Pros/Cons?

I don't really see any con's with it for a internal loop...You use 1/2" fittings with it, it is a lot easier to route around in your case then the 1/2x3/4 stuff... It's not as flexible as Tygon but it is still flexible....It flows about as well as the 1/2" stuff..You may have to heat the ends in hot water to slide them on your fittings, nice tight fit less likely to leak also...

7/16 is the inside diameter of 1/2" fittings that's why it flows about as well...You can usually find it for around .50 cents a foot , it's also fairly stain resistant ....Good Stuff...I really like it....

Thanks for the answer, very helpful indeed.

I guess I'll be going with the Masterkleer then. Since it's also cheaper than the Clearflex.
