First time watercooler

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello guys,i've been having the desire of watercooling for some time now, a matx build actually after the Godzilla of a case i have now,and with the Corsair 350d on the block,sais to myself to just do it.
Now, i wanna apologize if i my english is not correct,and continue with the HW parts i want to work with:

Case : Corsair 350d
Mobo : Maximus V Gene
CPU : Intel 3770k ( own )
VGA : Asus GTX 690 ( own )
RAM : Corsair Dominator Platinum ( for the looks )
SSD : Intel 520 x 2 ( own )
PSU : Corsair AX 760i / 860i

Some of these i own, as notified, some will buy just for this build.
I chosed some WC parts from EK,those which I liked better, really i am a total stranger in watercooling,and hoping you will give me some feedback, have no idea if there are better options, but i have to mention that i really like the looks of those EK products, and considering I'm trying to make the build as neat as possible i hope you recomend me EK as well.

http://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-fc690-gtx-backplate-black.html ( not in stock but hope i can find it separately )


The color scheme i think is red/white ( red cables and white coolant maybe )

Sooooo, this is it, what do you think of my choises made after zero knowledge ?

It sounds as though it will rock. I would note that the RAM is horribly pricey and if you have a red themed build why not go with Ripjaws Trident Z?


Similarly the Corsair AX860i is very expensive and I recently had a problem with mine which nobody on the Corsair forums was able to explain, so it is worth bearing in mind. Here's my thread about it -
