CASE: Antec 302
CPU: i5 3570K
GPU: 2x Powercolor 7870 Myst Edition (XT) in Crossfire
MOBO: ASRock Z77 Extreme4

What Swiftech H220 parts do I need to purchase to cool my specific CPU and both GPU's?

1x swiftech h220
1x additional radiator (check your case for compatibility)
2x GPU water blocks (if your cards arent reference design, you may have difficulty finding these in full cover form or will have to go universal block).
N# of fittings, 2 for each radiator and GPU block. Does not include any extra angle adapters, etc.
N feet of tubing in 5/8 x 3/8

try this site to find waterblocks from EK for your video cards: http://www.coolingconfigurator.com/

good luck. This is also my first time going custom and it's not too bad of an experience so far.
Thanks for the info!

The problem I'm having is that the more I read, the more confused I get on compatibility. I'm really hoping someone from Swiftech can come in and tell me what specific parts to order based on my specific build.

I THINK I need at least the following:
(1) H220
(1) Extra 5/8 by 3/8 tubing
(1) Swiftech SLI/Crossfire Bridge
(1) Additional Radiator (type!?)
(2) Swiftech Universal GPU Block (type!?)
(??) Other adaptors and brackets?

It's those last three items where I'm clueless...

Straight from ST site. Good video.

Glad you found it useful. It was fun to make and Gabe is a pretty good director.

looking briefly at the Antec 302, you wont be able to fit the H220 in its stock form anyway unless you squeeze it somewhere and devise your own mount for it. Then you have to figure out how to mount an additional radiator (120mm or 140mm, as the 302 supports those two types of fans)since 3 devices (CPU, 2x GPU) is probably too much for a single 240mm radiator.

To start you'll need a different case.

The 302 has two holes in the top of the case that are meant for routing WC tubes through from outside. My plan was to install the H220 externally... is that a bad idea? Couldn't I then install the second radiator somewhere inside?

Heh sometimes it feels that everything is failing when I do something with my builds. Everything. I shouldn't have even started after a bad and long day at work. biggrin.gif

So I got a new kit from RMA and put it together. Had to get some help from the wife to hold the flashlight etc. So after like 1 - 1½ hours of cabling, attaching a custom VRM fan onto motherboard etc, my rig is finally up and I could fire up the PC. Well, the pump is working fine this time. But the temps are high...and then while taking a shower and thinking a bit I remember that maybe I didn't remember to remove the plastic cover from the block. Just...DAMN...maybe my 1000th PC installation and this is the first time this happens.

It's the wife who always get the attention away at the crucial moment... biggrin.gif

Not just that but my another PC with 3-way SLI has started to show some graphics corruption after 30 minutes of gaming. It's really annoying to troubleshoot that problem. Sometimes I feel I'll never have a working computer anymore and I just should get a brand stock PC hehe.

Enough off topic, hopefully tomorrow I will have the energy to remove the plastic cover and hopefully everything works after that. Maybe I'll leave the 3960X at stock clocks for now and do some gaming.

My pump was dying pretty regularly during Battlefield 3 so I am flushing my system right now. Good excuse to put in my Komodo block. There was some small debris that came out of the pump but not a whole lot. All of my tubing was coated in that fine white powder as well...

Don't feel too bad. I forgot to remove the plastic film from the water block when I first installed my Apogee HD. I was just so excited to install it that I completely forgot to remove the plastic film. I realized it immediately though when I noticed that my idle temp on my 1090T was 40+ degrees biggrin.gif Oh well, we all make mistakes.

Unfortunately I don't have any further information on when the Egg will get these. Hopefully it will be some time this week.
