- Fittings (which ones are recommended)
- Liquid Cooling
- CPU Block
- 2 80mm fans (I already have 2, so I can push/pull)
Is there anything else that I am missing? Do I need to also get a pump?
Is FrozenCPU a good place to order from?
Sorry about all these questions, I have never put together a water cooling setup on my own.
For fittings, I'd recommend Bitspower. They look good and they aren't terribly expensive.
Yes, you will need both a pump and a reservoir. Given the HTPC nature of the rig, I'd recommend the Swiftech Apogee Drive II for the pump. Great performance in a very small package
I can vouch for FrozenCPU as a good place to order from. They've always shipped quickly and the only time they botched an order of mine I had the correct part shipped by the next morning. I may be a bit biased, though, since they ignored their "no returns on WC gear" for me once, which spared me a $240 lesson
