Water cooling advice? Help please!!!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Good Hello everyone! This is my first post on here. smile.gif I need some advice on water cooling for my rig. I recently built it, it is my first custom computer and I am looking into overclocking it. I'm just gonna list some of the specs if that would be useful...

Specs: CoolerMaster HAF 912
Asus P8H77-V
Intel I5 3570K, 3.4 GHz
Western Digital Red 3TB
Corsair Vengeance 16GB (4x4GB)
Asus GTX 660 Ti DirectCU II 2GB (O.C edition - i have no idea what this means)


I've been researching on some of the water blocks, reservoirs/pump combo and the radiators. I just dont know how big a radiator i need to cool just the cpu alone if i want to overclock. I would prefer if everything was internal, so it wont look too messy.
Is a 120mm rad enough for just the cpu alone? Or do i need a 240mm rad?
Also, I'm worried about how I am going to empty out the fluid if I was going to do some maintenance in the future.

The water block i was looking at is the Koolance CPU-380I Water Block. Here >>>>>> http://koolance.com/cpu-380i-processor-water-block
Or can someone suggest one that would be better for....water-cooling-ness....? biggrin.gif

I was also looking at this res/pump combo type thing, Here>>>>>>> http://koolance.com/rp-1005-reservoir-and-pump
Again..... if anyone could suggest a better one, it would be much appreciated smile.gif

I usually use my rig to play games and some light editing. Games like BF3, Far Cry 3, Planet side 2 and the others aren't as intensive.
And if i did break any "Forum Rules" please tell me!!!! I dont wanna be banned right after I join thumb.gif
