Well I already have the Swiftech H2O-220 edge Kit, with full covers Razor HD7970s blocks, the 360mm thick rad, apogee xt cpu block, fittings, all set up and running. This was intended as an upgrade for getting better temps. The Swiftech H2O comes with a Pump+Reservoir built in the 120mm thick radiator. The pump is a MPC35X, 22psi (1.5bar) 18W PWM, I think it would manage an aditional 120mm thick rad in the loop at ease. So my only spent money would be the aditional 120mm thick rad (With Push/Pull low rpms fans+bitspower fittings). What do you think would it be a good side/upgrade since I dont think on changing my Swiftech H2O-220 EDGE KIT with Pump+Res+Rad all-in-one.

Things I would be Water cooling: By now a Phenom 1100T 4.0ghz + 2 7970s reference overclocked, maybe a Vishera 8350 overclocked in the near future, or maybe waiting for steamroller to arrive.

This is my drawing:




Cheers. And thank you for your patience.

To be 100% honest you are not going to notice a difference at all with a 120mm rad, Your maybe looking at a 2c-3c difference !

I agree with ROG, you're not going to notice any big temp difference by adding an additional 120rad. If I was to change anything with your setup, if would have to do something with reducing that long tubing going from your 360rad to your 240rad. Less tubing is always better! You've stated you want to keep the 240rad, so not much I can add to that. Maybe set it up vertically if it doesn't strain the pump?

Ty I appreciate this. Hmmm so what about selling that 240 rad from swiftech and getting instead a MCP35X Pump PWM and a Bay reservoir from Frozen CPU?. That would change anything?, I mean less tubing and a better loop. I bought The Swiftech KIT back in 2011 because I was eager about going water cooling so a decided the kit over the custom loop, but then I realized water cooling wasn't that difficult and now here I am, wasted a lot 'cause that. Well I suppose I'm are not perfect!.

I just prefer as less tubing as I can when I build a system. This allows quicker flow of the coolant through the components, and also makes the rig look nicer. I only recommend bay reservoir/pump combos if you do not have much space in your rig.

Question: Have you bought the case already? For $250 you can get a much nicer and more watercooling friendly case.

Oh yes I'm sorry. I already ordered a NZXT Phantom 820, don't know about the clearance inside this full tower since its on route yet. I'll check this once I get it at home. But would it be better one of these?: http://www.pcmodd.com.ar/index.php?action=carro/showRubro&rbrId=89 (this is the only place I can get my WC stuff). What do you think?. I was thinking on this one but its pretty expensive though: http://www.pcmodd.com.ar/index.php?action=carro/showProduct&itmId=1818&rbrId=94 . Thanx for your help.thumb.gif

Maybe this one:

http://www.pcmodd.com.ar/index.php?action=carro/showProduct&itmId=1846&rbrId=89





It looks really cool and also is very nice on aesthetics. Also its 250mm x 60mm and it must contain a good amount of cooling, don't you think?.

I'm definitely fond of the FrozenQ reservoirs, but like you said, they're pricey. If theirs good space in your case, the EK DDC X-RES Top 240 - Acetal, or FrozenQ reservoir would look quite nice. You could have the 360 rad tubing go straight to the top of the reservoir, then have the pump go to the 260rad, and so forth.

If you got the FrozenQ reservoir, you could have the pump sit on top of the 240rad, or attached to the hd cage via screws.

Here's a nice image you can drool over that shows what I mean by how the reservoir and pump is set up:

Nice it was ordered 1 hour ago. And thanks for your help again. Now I would have to figure out how many fittings I'll be needing.
