First water loop

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN

I'm considering to install a waterloop in my new (upcoming) build in terms of overclocking and folding at stable temperatures.
I've set up a list of parts already, but I'm not sure I have everything I need.
Could you guys give me some feedback about this loop (it's only a CPU loop, for now tongue.gif)? Do I miss something? Will all the components fit with each other?

List:

Thanks in advance wink.gif!

It looks good to me thumb.gif Which case are you going to use? Have you considered water-cooling GPU as well?
Good luck with your build.

Good luck with your build.

I'm going to take the Enermax Ostrog GT case and put the dual rad ontop.
And yes, I want to watercool my GPU as well, but there's just one major problem. I'm going to buy the Club3D 7870 XT JokerCard and there are no full waterblocks for Tahiti Le based cards (yet, I hope...). And if I cool it, I want a full block. I pay alot of attention to aesthetics, and a universal block with heatspreaders on the RAM and VRM looks redicilous imo.
I've already sent a message to EKWB Support with the question if they're going to make full waterblocks for these cards.
Also told them that alot of people will buy and have already bought a Tahiti Le based card, so it will certainly improve their market.

The case looks nice.

- I'm pretty sure at some point you will want to put GPU on water wink.gif so I'd be careful not to end up with a nice card you cannot put on water. Personally I would go for reference design, but it's just my opinion

- If you want to cool CPU + GPU I would consider adding another rad, or at least plan on how to add it in the future

The reason I REALLY want a 7870 XT is because it performs way better than a 7870, almost as good as a 7950, and that for around 219€. Insane performance for that price.
I just really hope 7870 XT full waterblocks will hit the market any time soon.
Isn't a 240 rad enough for CPU + GPU? I don't have any space left I think..

You should be fine, especially with high performance fans (Scythe GT, Corsair SP...), but if you want reduced rpm (=quiet rig) and lower temps I highly recommend another rad.

I might just do that if I find that it's too loud smile.gif.
Btw, EKWB answerred. They are not planning on making any full water blocks in the near future.. A difference in price of about 80€

If you remove lower HDD cage (to be checked if it's possible), you can fit at least 120 rad in the bottom.
Are you sure you can put the 240 rad and fans in the top?

I don't think you can remove the lower HDD cage without messing up the middle cage. The middle one clicks out. But I might just lock the middle one in place with rivets or screws. So maybe I can add a little rad in that bottom corner.
And about the top dual rad, I can install 2 x 120 mm fans, so I can also install a 240mm rad (I think), but because of the lack of place the fans would have to be installed on the outside. But since I'm going for a 30mm rad maybe the fans will fit on the inside, I'll see about that when I have the case.

to me it looks like you will NOT be able to fit a 240 rad in the top.. The height of the fans and rad would be below the top of the mobo and most likely not allow you to plug in your 8pin mobo connector. Take some measurements from the top of the case to the first thing that would be hit if the rad and fans and go from there.
