First timer looking for advice.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello watercooling meisters!

I've ordered a LD PC-V8 case a couple of days ago and I basicly just wanted to ask wether or not the items I've picked out for my waterloop are worth investing in.
As the title says It's my first time.. It will only be a "to try it" build for now, thinking of adding chromes pipes and gpu blocks in the future, but for now I just want to try and make a basic loop.

I've picked out the following items:

EK - Supremacy - Full Nickel


EK - BAY DCP 2.2 Combo Reservoir - incl. pump


XSPC EX480 - Black


EK - CSQ Push On Fitting - G� - 16/10mm - Nickel (x6)


PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT - 16/10mm - Onyx Black (2x1 meter)


Arctic Cooling MX-4

Anything else I should add or anything I should switch out for something better? Any advice is highly appreciated!

I take it that you are only going to cool your CPU?

For now yes. It's basicly just me testing how to set up watercooling, I will be adding more stuff in the future tho, so I'd like it to be worth investing in.

With that case you have room to grow and everything looks good to go. Enjoy it!

Thanks. The pump/reservoir combo should be good enough if I decide to add another 480 rad and a gpu block in future right?

That pump is pretty powerful, but you could always add another in series to gain redundancy and extra flow. Use this guide for a better understanding http://martinsliquidlab.org/pump-planning-guide/
