Help me with a basic watercooling loop?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, thinking about doing a basic watercooling loop.

Is this everything I would need to do a loop from res/pump to cpu? I am assuming i also need a radiator. I already have 120mm fans.

Under 150 bucks would be cool. I have the source 210 elite, so only 120/140mm rads are able to fit with out modding.

How does this look for a cheap liquid cooling system?

And then obviously coolant i would need.



Or would I be better off with this kit?

Help appreciated ^-^

I'd go with the 240 kit, but I really dislike the 1.8m head. Head means it can go that high straight up without resistance through your tubing. I'd go with a 240 dual rad and a pump and separate res. It really wouldn't matter if you only planned on watercooling CPU though.

Okay but all of that is expensive! I am trying to stay around the 150 dollar range! :/

And yea i really only plan on cooling just the cpu with it. So would what I had selected work? Not the kit but the parts i picked?

Yea, but that is only if you wanted to upgrade later to add gpu/'s to loop. If not then go with a kit. Yes it will work as would the corsair closed loop coolers less maintenance.

Okay, so the kit is cheaper rather than buying the individual parts right? SO if i bought the kit all i'd need is tubing and coolant correct?

CPU 330, seems to be good, but it is discontinued i think.

Kit comes with tubing.

You would just need the coolant.
