New to Watercooling, Parts Checklist

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to see if I miss anything or any advice for the parts I picked out.

Case will be a Phantom 820. Still deciding on the Mobo for the Haswell. (Leaning toward the U4DH since it's such a good deal at Microcenter, OC, or MPower. Wanted to wait for the ASRock Formula or ROG but will probably cave soon tongue.gif)



Thanks for the help!!

You dont need the dead water and the silver plug. I would just get a silver kill coil.

Dont need the gaskets (I never used them or seen them used lol). Not 100% but pretty sure you need a reader if you want to use the temperature plug. Dont really need that either. The power supply starter you can just use a paper clip and save some dollars if you want lol.

How do you plan on having your loop? Cant tell what the 90 degree or the M-M adapter is for lol

Looks pretty good, but I have to point out a few things.

1) IIRC, the Monsoon silver bullet is just silver plated, so it doesn't last as long as a normal killcoil. Plus, you already have the PT nuke, so you wouldn't need them both.

2) Drop the Bitspower psu starter. I know its only like $2, but you can just use a paper clip.

That's just my 2cents.gif, so take my advice lightly.

I'd also maybe suggest getting a top for your pump. It's not necessary, but it'd make a good addition.

The rest of the loop looks pretty awesome though!

Oh and what fans will you be using?

EDIT: Be sure to use the promo code: OCN55 for 5.5% off your order!

Alright, switched the plug to the coil. Dropped the gasket, temp probe, and psu starter

Well the M-M adapter is for pairing the tube res with the pump at the bottom. At least that's the plan. The elbow I got was for the temp probe but that's gone. Current plan is to have the rad up top going Res->Pump->CPU Block->Rad.

What would you suggest for a pump top? Plan is to have the pump under the res with the M-M adapter. Should I also get the heatsink for the pump? Since they are known to run a bit hot.

Fans will be 6 Silverstone FM121 in push/pull. Looking for a LCD display fan controller but all the reviews on varying brand/models either has average to horrible reviews. Would love a suggestion here.

Definitely know about the discount code. smile.gif

Also, do you think I should get more fittings?

XSPC tops consistantly perform the best, according to Martin. You could get a heatsink if you want, but they can get kinda spendy. An alternate option would be to run a fan underneath.

Good choice on the fans. And I am actually looking for a LCD fan controller too! I've done some research and it seems Lamptron makes some pretty nice controllers.

Any difference between the Acetal and Acrylic ver.?

Performance wise? Nope. Only difference its aesthetics.
