Water Cooling 3 680 FTW's; Parts needed?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am looking to water cool my tri 680 setup. I am looking at getting the EK full coverage waterblocks for the FTW editions. I would just like to know what else i am going to need. Fittings, SLI connections, backplates, etc. I already have a custom loop that i will just be adding to.

I would prefer to buy from FrozenCPU. Thanks!

You can get a tri-sli bridge from EKWB, just make sure they are from the same series (CSQ, for example). You will need to make sure that the spacing is identical to your motherboard. Your MIVE would be dual slot.

Other than that, you just need enough radiator, a strong enough pump, and two fitting for inlet/outlet.

So there is the waterblocks:

If you are using the Maximus IV in your sig;
A triple dual slot bridge in either serial or parallel:

For backplates I think you need to use one sold by EVGA

For fittings just a couple of compressions to match whatever hose you use.

Okay. I will be using the Maximus from my sig rig. When it comes to serial vs parallel I have no idea which one to use, or even what the difference is.

Edit: Nevermind. I just had to look at the pretty pictures. Now I know what the difference is but is one preferable to the other?
