Need Advice on Customized CPU H2O cooling set-up.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys. I am building a new rig and below is the spec.

CPU : CORE I7 3970X
MOTHERBOARD : ASUS RAMPAGE 4 EXTREME
RAM : Corsair Dominator Platinum CMD32GX3M8A2400C10 32GB 4X8GB DDR3-2400 C10 with Corsair blue/white lighting kits x02 - Bought
CASING : Magnum STH10 from Case Labs
GRAPHIC CARD : EVGA GeForce GTX TITAN SuperClocked 6GB x02 - Bought
STORAGE: SAMSUNG SSD 840 PRO 128GB (FOR OS) & SAMSUNG 840 PRO 256GB x 02 - Bought
OPTICAL DRIVE : Undecided but want something which can play HD DVD/DVD. Considering blu-ray optical drive too.
PSU : Corsair AX-1200i Platinum
CPU COOLER : SWIFTECH H220 - Bought
KEYBOARD : RAZER BLACKWIDOW ULTIMATE STEALTH EDITION - Bought
MOUSE : RAZER DEATHADDER 2013 - Bought
DISPLAY : SAMSUNG S27A950DSL - Bought
THERMAL PASTE : COOLABORATORY LIQUID METAL ULTRA

Now, the CPU H20-cooling part. Initially i thought of going for the AIO H220 CPU cooler, but after the STH10 arrives, H220 is not going to justify this case. And so, i am planning for the below customized CPU H2O-cooling set-up using parts from AquaComputer:

** Aim: A quality CPU H2O-cooling setup which is easy to maintain.

Radiator:
Aqua Computer Webshop - Spar-Bundle airplex XT 360 G1/4 + 3x airstream 120 mm 31105AS

* For the radiator, possible to get a compatible and yet good quality 4.120 radiator? The casing 3/4 holes filled looks ugly. Aquacomputer has only got 3*120 radiator.

Pump:
Aqua Computer Webshop - Pumpenmodul compact 600 Ultra für aqualis mit Füllstandsmessung, G1/4 41101

Reservoir:
Aqua Computer Webshop - aqualis XT 880 ml mit Füllstandsmessung und Beleuchtungsmöglichkeit, G1/4 34050

Water Block:
Aqua Computer Webshop - cuplex kryos HF für Sockel 2011, G1/4 21586

***Now, is the above combination workable? What kind of fittings do i need to set this up? Any parts missing?

That is a decent set up. The only thing you are missing is hose, and fittings. You can just use your regular barb fittings or compression fittings. If you go barbs I recommend 7/16in hose on a 1/2in barb if you are going to go with barbs. If you are going to go with compression fittings get the same size Inner diamiter and outer diameter compression fittings as your hose.
