Will this Setup Work

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys i'm looking for some input on the following parts. Will this be a good starter build? CPU cooling only .

Radiator XSPC EX240

RayStorm CPU WaterBlock

XSPC Acetal Dual 5.25

Swiftech MCP655

Also what size compression fittings should I use 1/2" or 3/8" . Any help will be great thanks.

Should work just fine!
I would personally go for the RX series of radiators though, they are much better and top of the class when it comes to using lower RPM fans for silence, pair it with some Scythe Gentle typhoon's AP series and you got a killer low noise setup wink.gif

I would go for 1/2, as this would allow for better flow in the system, and 3/8 is a thing of the past in my opinion. Also 1/2 looks much more "beef" since it is thicker!

Best of luck in your watercooling adventure, I promise you won't regret it thumb.gif

EDIT: Like mentioned under, 7/16 tubing is also good, and will fit on 1/2 barbs with a tight fit wink.gif But with compression barbs it doesn't really matter.

Seems like you're on a good track smile.gif Great equipment
My opinion would be go for the RX240 as well, low fin count and thick radiator great for low speed fans or get a nice alphacool ut60

For tubing i would say 7/16 and 5/8 , too small or too big is questionable, bigger tube allows flow rate but with less pressure, smaller tube allows greater pressure but less flow rate

Check out the koolance 380-cpu waterblock, 'supposedly' it's outperforming the rest, not sure if this is 100% true but someone posted this in the other thread http://hardforum.com/showthread.php?t=1708036

Thats for the feedback boys.
The IN connect on the CPU block, what is that refer to. Is it in from the pump/Res or from the Rad?

Think of it as a door. Enter and Exit, In and Out

It is where your waterflow will be coming IN(regardless what component is before it) and your OUT is where it will be leaving the block to the next component.

Of course you need to make sure you have all the other in and outs proper biggrin.gif

Example: Your pumps OUT would go to your blocks IN and your blocks OUT will go to your pumps IN
sometimes it's confusing depending on how you have it set up but im sure youll get it right thumb.gif

Does the Rad has an In/Out also
