Help me build a water cooling setup

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok I have some money coming in, and I've always wanted to have a water cooling setup.


I want to get a setup to cool my i7 920 and my HD6950.

I have an Antex 900-2 case. My power supply is a Antec Truepower New 650W.

I am hoping I dont have to replace either my case or PSU.

If someone could help me with a list of things I need with how much it's going to cost.

I want someone thats easy to maintain. I've seen stuff like this: http://www.swiftech.com/mcr-x20-drive-rev3.aspx

Radiator, reservoir, and pump all in one. Not sure if it's any good but suggestions would be nice.

I'm completely new to watercooling. Not that I'm afraid to get my hands dirty, but would be nice to get a setup going.

I'm willing to pay a bit more if, like that rad I linked above would be good. As it will be on the outside, and I can easily change the fluid.


Thanks

Hey there. If you want a easy quick solution, the swiftech h220 is for you: http://www.swiftech.com/h220.aspx

Its modular so you can add more rads and blocks to it as you desire, unlike other closed loop CPU only coolers like h100i. Either that, or get a XSPC 360 kit.

I saw the 220, so your saying I can take the tubes off and add in a GPU block later?

Also, I dont see a reservoir on it.
