New build help needed.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Case wise im going to buy the corsair 900D for my watercooling parts so that's that bit out the way.

Asus Rampage IV Extreme X 79 (Have)

Cpu 3820 @4.5ghz (Have)

Koolance RP-452X2 Dual 5.25 Rev 2.0 (Have)

Koolance PMP-450 High Flow Pump : PMP-450 (Have) will one be ok or should I buy another one?

Cpu block not sure what one to get?

EK FB KIT RE4 CSQ Motherboard Waterblock Acetal (Have)

EVGA Hydro Copper Waterblock for GTX 680 Classified (Have)

Motherboard and cpu will have 90 Degree Rotary Fitting`s to cut down on the clutter.

3\8" ID - 5\8" OD Compression Fittings 40s/90s and normal ones.

Fans are Corsair SP120 Quiet Series Speed: 1450 RPM (Have)

I have some AFs for the front intake of the case and will have the corsair 140mm on the back.(Have)

Heres where im not to sure about its the rads I want to place in the case.


Top roof rad Alphacool NexXxos XT45 360mm Triple Radiator (Not yet)
Should I run this push/pull?

Or should I get the 60mm Alphacool NexXxos and just run the fans push


Bottom side Alphacool NexXxos XT45 480mm Quad Radiator (Not yet)
Also should I run this in push/pull

Thanks.

Generally I don't think push / pull makes enough of a difference in temps to justify the extra expense and noise of the additional fans.

On the other hand if one can afford it, deal with the extra cable clutter and plans to control noise using fan speed adjusters or a fan controller then why the hell not. Looks cool tongue.gif

I agree, push pull doesn't do enough to make it worth the extra cost, unless you have extra fans laying around like I did. Instead of doing a push setup, I would look into pull. Same performance as push, but it makes cleaning dust off as simple as brushing your hand across the bottom of the rad as opposed to detaching the fans to clean it, and it just looks cleaner IMO.

Good new`s really as im gong to replace both rads with the 60mm model and run one set of fans on each of them.

Another thing I forgot to ask was I want to use clear hose and idea what is the best out there that will not cloud over time?

Thanks.
