Looking for watercooling advice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Im going to take a stab at watercooling my rig. This will be my first attempt at this but I have used a number of AIO coolers for my cpu and gpu over the last few years. Im ready for the next step.

I want a really simple system but nice. I don't mind spending a little extra to prep a future gpu for sli but im not going sli for a long while as a titan is expensive.

Im looking for an Res/Pump combo and a single large rad (120mm fans). I wont be adding the cpu into this loop but in the future I may. I run stock everything but I may OC from time to time but that said im expecting temps to jump and im not worried as I will not be OC 24/7


Looks are more important than function but silence is priority.

$200-$300 for the res/pump combo and ive seen rads with pumps built in and are considered the res also, ill pay more for one of these type units.

rad only unit

Well first things first you need to ask yourself what type of watercooling do you want?.

Do you want a bay Res or a cylinder style one?

How/where do you wish to mount the pump?

If you're going to use that Haf in your sig your best bet is a single 120mm rad x3 in the roof.

I know you stated you did not want to cool your cpu right now but have a look at kit like this

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17639/ex-wat-230/XSPC_Raystorm_RX360_Universal_CPU_Water_Cooling_Kit_w_D5_Variant_Pump_Included_and_Free_Dead-Water_.html?tl=g30c83s137

Then depending your graphics card add in a block of your choice and another 2 compression fittings, in one swoop you have both cpu and card water cooled via one loop, and the pump is a nice D5 vario so you can turn its speed down to get a good mix of quiet and cooling.

The fans are XSPCs 1650 rpm jobs also a good mix of cooling power and quiet but nothing stopping you replacing them with other fans.

@REPUBLICOFGAMER

Fantastic guild thumb.gif I will spend some more time going over it, thanks for posting that.

@Mrshilka

I just picked up a H110 and it works great for cooling my cpu.

Im thinking I want to just cool this one gpu, the link I provided was not the exact rad I want but I like the idea of having everything contained in RAD. Im thinking something that will cool a Titan and adding a second normal rad if I upgrade to SLI. I understand that these rads have two cooling chambers inside for dual loops.

Currently nothing is in stone at this point. I have time for think about it biggrin.gif
