How is this list of fittings for first build?

post #1 of 4

Does this list look like overkill for 3 480 montas, full mobo EK blocks w/mem and dual mcp pumps? Going in my TH10 case. Looks pricey but wondering if i can save anywhere. When do you purchase your fittings, before or after mapping things out?

Too much overkill

2 fittings per component. It's best to draw out a diagram of your case to get an idea of what goes where so you can plan where your rotary angled fittings.

There's also no such thing as overkill on OCN. smile.gif

If it's your first build, I'd keep it simple and just do 2 fittings per component. I made the mistake of going all out on my first loop and ended up with a uv dye stained carpet (luckly it was clear dye, but I feel sorry for anybody doing a black light test in that room), rma'd mobo and gpu, and in general an unpleasant first experience. Stick to just cooling your CPU, or CPU and GPU, and you'll be fine, but I tried RAM and chipset in there too...really bad idea. Also, use a full coverage block on GPU's...the ram sinks just dont seem to do the job sometimes. Now I'm on my 3rd build, and absolutely love the aesthetics and acoustics that watercooling provides, but be patient, watch TONS of videos on youtube (I recently foundthis youtube channel that has gorgeous build logs, laid out simply, and he explains everything very well. I'd recommend watching at least 2-3 of those entire logs before you order any watercooling parts, just so you know what you're getting into. Good luck!
