Need Suggestion For GPU Water Block. Updated with Pics further down of First build.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Walked into Microcenter yesterday with the intention of upgrading my Main rig massively, and suddenly encountered a huge custom Water cooling section I had never noticed before.

Long story short for pretty cheap money (less than 250) I walked out of there with A bunch of compression fittings, 10 ft of tubing 3/8 1/2 inch, An AMD Raystorm XSPC 360 waterblock, a swiftech Res, a MCP355 Pump, and a MCR220-QP Extreme Duty Dual 120mm Radiator. Unfortunately after getting this home and taking measurements I wound up finding my HAF 912 nowhere near up to the task.

So Right now my build is kind of Frankensteining it, with most of the set up outside the computer.

On the bright side I filled, mounted, sealed, and am currently running the loop with no issues. My Temps never exceed 42C with 4.4 mild overclock in intel burn test. Probably the first time I've ever done anything with this computer properly the first time.

But help is what I seek. I need a case big enough for Two fairly large rads (I'm adding one more and am most likely going to cool the northbridge and the GTX670). Plus the best waterblock (universal or custom) for GPU within reason.


Some pics of my horror show...

Under $200, NZXT Switch 810 seems to fit your needs. For a little over $200, 800D is also a good option for fitting the setup you're thinking of. BTW, great deal from Microcenter. Did you make a deal with one of the reps there?

Depends on what you want. after seeing you have a 240 rad i would suggest the same case i have, fair warning it has no fan filters...
Yet you can place 2 240 rads in it or 1 360 and 1 120.

If you got cash to spare and want badass overkill the new 900D from Corsair is out.

You can also fit a 420mm rad in the top (slim like the EX420), which would give you more cooling area than a 360mm rad for the switch 810. And if you want badass overkill, go for the LD PC V8, Natively allows for up to 3x480mm rads tongue.gif.

That little devil imho is one of the great case out there, and if i were you ,im gonna grab that 900d if ive the budget and time to wait
Right now im stuck with my switch 810 (which i still dearly love) and ordered a pedestal from dwood for it
You can check it on my build log

But it would be best to know your budget first. For something on the cheaper line get switch 810 or the azza genesis 9000

I ended up going with your Switch 810. I love this case. Perfect size. Everything fits. The build is pretty much complete, just have to get a GPU waterblock at some point. I know I know my tubing is way too long (at some point I'll fix it) and I have some wiring I need to run through the back but my temps are perfect right now so I'll add it when I get a GPU block. I still can't believe I got the damn loop and mount right the first try.

Here are some pics.





Btw, I still need some advice. What kind of GPU waterblock would recommend for my card?

P.S. What is the deal with the Temps reported on FX8350 Processors? How many degrees am I supposed to add, as I doubt I am actually running at 14C
