First time for everything! Please help me :) - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Oh, disposable income...I wish I had one, lol. Imho, having 1 GTX Titan is bragging rights, lol. A quick suggestion: If you don't have a 2560x1600 Monitor, I definitely recommend buying one before getting another Titan! wink.gif I am loving my recently purchased ASUS PB278Q 2560x1440 monitor!

Loop system looks fine by me! thumb.gif

If dead set on the bay res combo, might as well upgrade to the Koolance version. The koolance res supports dual pumps if you need more overkill. Only downside is it's difficult to bleed.

In my experience its not that bad if some water gets on the compnents. My first try turning on my 655 water got water in my psu and back of one of my gpus. Dried off what i could then left it overnight. It turned on the next morning and it was fine.

This may be the case but I would still take every precaution possible to not let this happen. The last thing you need whilst building your first loop is a new set of underwear.

Also, hang out in the water cooling club and gallery. You'll be sure to learn a thing or two. Lots of great rigs to steal ideas from!

Mine is essentially this but I have my pump where the bottom radiator is and a bay reservoir instead of a cylindrical one.


If you saw inside of my current build, yours probably looks spotless!

Ah great, that certainly helps. Thanks!

Lol, yeah my income is somewhat disposable. I'm 23 so outside of bills I don't have too many responsibilities. I haven't told the other half how much I'm spending on this PC though, that is something she doesn't need to know!

You'll kill me when I say this but I'm currently gaming on a 1920x1080 screen. I'd love the bigger resolution but I can't go back from 120Hz screens! The second a 2560x1440/1600 @120Hz screen is released I'll be buying it! Admittedly I won't be buying 2 titans at once, I'm not made of money unfortunately frown.gif there would be a gap of a few months between titans. Though if I get a 7 series card then I'll buy 2 in one go and debate getting a third later in the year.

I probably won't have the pump and reservoir combo, if that is what you mean? They'll be separate in the loop. I don't think I'll be going for 2 pumps though, I want to keep this loop as simple as possible, it's my first one remember wink.gif

Thank you! As I've said, you've got a really helpful community here. I've asked the same question in many places but always get the typical "water is a waste of money go for air cooling" response even though I've made it clear I want to try watercooling :lol: this is the only place where people have advised me what to do on watercooling rather than trying to make me buy what they want!

I'm sure it isn't but it is something I want to avoid. I read on a website. Perhaps Scan you can buy water that has little or no conductive properties, is that true?

Again, thanks for the replies and sorry for the late reply
