water-cooling in Crosair D900 case?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi everybody, I'm just about to build a rig with D900 case, ASUS Rampage IV Extreme mobo, CORSAIR DOMINATOR GT 16GB ram, 3930k, 4970 radeon.

So, I'm first of all I wanna mention that I have almost no clue about water-cooling, so I was wondering... what are the essential parts needed just to make a water-cooling for CPU only? what parts do I need? and even more importantly, where I can get them from?

I linked these components used in this rig a lot: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sv8baCwGSYw

do you know where to get these parts from and what are the famous/reliable brands for buying parts in order to build a CPU cooling water system?


and I noticed something strange in one another of these builds in D900, this's the one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TFou20hvmA

so, how these system cools components if there is no any reservoir applied? don't they use water for cooling parts or so?

and my almost last question: how does a liquid cooling system works? such as H110/H110, I mean the principle of performance? is there a water flowing through the tubs or its some another kind of chemical factor? because I kind of having hard time to understand how a liquid cooler works and cools the parts?

so the last question! I like this D900 case a lot, BUT when I was watching the review of the case and I saw the POWER button it totally turned me off lol, it looks extremely cheep and silly, I was wondering, are there any aftermarket power source controllers that can replace its default cheap looking power button? are there any nice ones that can be replaced with stock one? Thanks.

Thanks everyone for considering my question smile.gif

I have the 900D, it's not cheap, and looks amazing in person. As far as most videos on these cases they're sponsor builds just to show what the case can hold/do for demo purpose only. There's all kinds of water cooling guides on here as far as what's best to get and all that. Corsair AIO coolers use some sort of non-corrosive coolant as they're pre filled and you don't have to open them. Custom water loops use regular distilled water with a killcoil, but people usually drain/flush and refresh them every few months or longer.

Parts just check out the liquid cooling section on http://www.frozencpu.com

The power button on the 900D is solid. It's actually rather large with the springs and LEDs inside it but I suppose you could mod it if you wanted.
