Need advice for my first move to watercooling

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey there, I'm planning to water cool my rig (since i bought a titan).
It will be my first attempt to water cooling, so even if I've spent my last 3days reading and gathering information here, on martin site (http://martinsliquidlab.org/), and on stren blog (http://www.xtremerigs.net/), well I'm still a noob to water cooling and everything around it tongue.gif

Here is my rig :
case : cooler master haf 932
mb : asus maximus IV extreme (p67)
cpu : 2600k @4.6ghz
air cooler : noctua nh-d14
ram : g.skill rispjaw x 2*4go 2133mhz cl9
gpu : gtx titan (asus)
ssd : 2 ocz vertex (v2 and v3)
psu : cooler master silent pro gold 700w

After all the information I gathered, here are the elements I plan to use :

pump : swiftech MCP35x @50%
pump dissip : MCP35x-hs
res : MCP35x-res rev2

rad : alphacool nexxxos UT60 full coper 360
ventirad : gt ap-15, 3 on each side of the rad

cpu waterblock : koolance cpu 380i
gpu waterblock : not sure, waiting for stren to finish its waterblock roundup, but i'm thinking about the EK one

fittings : bitspower
tubing : tygon 13/19


I'm focusing on 1.5gpm on pump and 1500 to 1800rpm on fans, the pump run around 5.42psi @1.5gpm, and the system psi reduction should be lower then 4.5psi for 1.5gpm (if i gathered the right values ^^")

What do you think? sounds good? bad? missing something? everything? tongue.gif

I don't want to bother anyone, but if someone could look at the elements I plan to buy for my WC (listed up there), and just tell me if everything seems to be fine, before I order it all, I would feel really more confident to start my first WC project tongue.gif
thanks for your time

Everything looks good to me. Good brands chosen for everything. Im not too sure about Tygon tubing but I have heard great things about Primochill Advanced LRT tubing.
