@pepe I am looking at the reservoir because of the temp sensor built in. I have since found a very shiny thing that will render that sensor display stupid. Lol.

Dear Lord is that thing amazing, and especially for that price!

If I do end up getting that, then I am getting a temp sensor and going back to my original reservoir choice.

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/15648/ex-res-352/Alphacool_Repack_Dual_525_Acrylic_Reservoir_-_Clear_-_Revision_2_15033.html

I like that one because I can add a 4" CCFL to it.

I am currently debating between UV reactive coolant and UV reactine tubing, or distilled water with PT Nuke/silver/something else and the UV reactive tubing. I have been doing my research, and I do not want the sludge and sediment build up that some of the coolants leave behind. I think Fesser was one to avoid. Fluid XP was one that came up as a good one, though.

Okay, late reply here:

1) If you go with colored coolant, use Mayhem. They have an excellent record of having no sludge or residue forming. And some of their stuff looks amazing. Look up Mayhem nebula blue on youtube.

I see you hace a UT60 and 3 fans. Great combo! thumb.gif The GT fans are top notch and so is the UT60 full copper. But that radiator kinda stuggles at low fan speed below 1000 rpm because of it's thickness. So I would suggest you get your fans in push/pull (6 fans needed). And if you dont have the room, just go down to the XT45 in push/pull. The XT45 with push/pull will perform better than the UT60 with push or pull only.

Cheers biggrin.gif

The fans I am getting are 1,850 rpm, so they should be fine. Also looking at getting either this:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17864/ex-rad-466/XSPC_3_x_120mm_Radiator_Gasket_-_3mm.html

or this:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12588/ex-rad-218/Phobya_Shroud_and_Decoupling_Gasket_120mm_7mm_thickness.html

to help increase pressure and air flow, and reduce noise.

I am going with red coolant, tubes, and lights for my system.

Yes, at 1850 rpm you will be fine. However, if you wish to slow your fans down for silence when not under load (surfing, emailing, ect...) then a push/pull can increase performance by over 30%.

Just have a look here and see how the ST30 (half as thick) performs just as well below 1,100 rpm. The reason for this is because the fans are having trouble pushing air throught the thicker rad at low speed but they can do just fine with a thinner rad.

Great find, I'm going to get the same for my rads! thumb.gif

I think I am going to stick with the UT60 and the 3x 1850rpm fans. I am going to be overclocking as much as I can get out of the chip, and adding more to the loop down the line. I want to make sure I am planning this out like I already have the video cards. I may even do chipset cooling, and I want to do ram cooling when I get to the point of needing it.

I do have another question, though. If I go with this coolant:
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17713/ex-liq-293/Mayhems_X1_Coolant_Concentrate_-_250mL_-_UV_Red.html?tl=g30c337s1809

do I need to worry about the particles possibly blocking the cpu block? I am going with the XSPC RayStorm, and I don't want to have to worry about cleaning it out every month or two. I do want UV coolant, though.

While I'm sure Mayhem's might pop in and explain it in more detail, I would say no you don't need to worry. I used the pastel mint green in my loop for a good while and when I disassembled my loop there were no signs of buildup in any of my blocks.

it's what im using atm, its awesome, though i've been getting weird gpu temps but i can't blame that on the coolant

Well that would be overkill indeed. But mind you, I have twice as much raddage as that one 1080 rad so I cant throw the first stone. There is a guy here who has 5 or 6 of these monsters in his build. Now that's insane!

But if you can affort it, one will be plenty.

The good thing about a rad like that is it has to be external so no compromise with air flow and sandwiching rads.
