Ordering first loop soon.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Am I missing anything here? im not trying to break the bank but I did try to get the best bang for buck type parts. Everything look good here?

Will the pump and res be enough to handle just a cpu loop and will I be able to add a gpu loop in the future?



Thank you!

If you are going to add a video card later, the radiator is what will determine how cool you can keep everythng. The pump doesnt reallly help there (as long as it's not a bottom of the barrel pump). Not sure about that rad. Maybe it can handle it, maybe not. If you want to be absolutely safe, I would suggest this:

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_457_667_1075&products_id=32769

You might want to get some rotary and/or 90 degree angle fittings incase you need to make a tight squeeze.

You will also need a couple of fans for your radiator. I like these, but you can always get louder, cheaper fans. Just make sure they are pressure optimized.

Dont forget proper coolant too. This is whatI used. Comes with a handy fill tube. Never use straight water or even distilled water. You need something with a biocide.

I know you dont want to break the bank but hey, thats what water cooling does!

Make sure you have some good thermal paste and I think you will be good to go! thumb.gif

Something like this would be better value if you have room for the slightly thicker 45mm rad. Many people don't though, they really should include an ST30 in these kits. The pump is a much better pump that would easily handle an added GPU block or two and another rad.

The DCP 2.2 is a rebranded Jingway DP600 and will pump through about 2 PSI restriction at 1 GPM so it will definitely handle your CPU and an added GPU block fine as long as they are modern high flow types ... just maybe not a lot more than that.

I have the fans covered. I know I would need to add at least another 120mm rad if i wanted to do gpu loop. I have room for two 240mm rads in teh Fractal R4

I was really wanting this kit and still might, Im not sure if i can fit anything bigger then a 35mm raqd in the front of the case without having to completely remove my hdd cage.

I still might go with the alpha cool kit anyways as I like their rads.

thanks for the input guys
