Ok so i wanna cool my Cpu,
And video Card, Cards When i get the other one.

Would it be better to get the cpu going now and wait on the video cards or just do it all at the same time.

Here is what i have looked up on getting, What are your thoughts on it so far.



AMD Water Block 74.99

http://koolance.com/cpu-380a-processor-water-block

Hose $1.61 x10=$16.10

http://koolance.com/tubing-blue-uv-reactive-pvc-13mm-x-16mm-1-2in-x-5-8in

Water Pump $76.99

http://koolance.com/pmp-450-pump-id-13mm-1-2in

Now the Rad should i do the 11FPI or 30FPI??

11FPI

http://koolance.com/radiator-3-fan-120mm-11-fpi-copper

30FPI

http://koolance.com/radiator-3-fan-120mm-30-fpi-copper

And the mount (theres no way this would fit in the 912 Unless i mounted it upfront, and removed my drive bays.)

And i also need a Reservoir just dont know what one to get, would like to get one to attach to the case its self if possible, or how are the bay ones??

http://koolance.com/tnk-501-single-5-25in-bay-reservoir

The part im so lost on is the adapters,fittings,clamps and so fourth.
And also is using the 13mm hose for everything smart or no??
And where would i find the external power supply to power the pump to bleed it??

Thanks thumb.gif

I am sort of new to water oolong too. About two years now. I used to cool the same chip in hopes of better performance. I ended up switching platforms because it was bottlenecking my GPU in games like metro or skyrim. Make sure the block you end up with has both multiple mounting option in case you start to get the same especially if you get more gpu's. as for the radiator, fpi depends on the fans you are going to use. Are you looking for quiet or ultimate performance (which you won't get anyway with that chip. It's a nice chip don't get me wrong, but it will hold you back soon). The res is pretty much you choice. I use a bay res because I can afford to use the drive bays and it keeps my res at the top of my loop. It doesn't matter really to be at the top as long as it is above the pump I think. Just be sure to get one that will hold enough for your loop. I have read that the more water In the res, the better the water temp is but I have not tried. For fitting that is complete personal preference. Tubing size matters kind of. 1/2 id and 3/8id perform about the same with similar conditions. There is a thread on this here on OCN somewhere. GL.

I got a Swiftech kit to begin water cooling, and then I added my GPU to the loop and replaced barbs with monsoon compression fittings. Have a look at these kits. You get a low fpi radiator (for silent operation) with integrated reservoir, a nice water block coupled with a heavy duty PWM pump (that you can decouple and use it if you change CPU waterblock in the future) and a radiator box to mount in the back of the case (only with the 360 version I think).
