Water cooling advice.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Here is the list of water cooling parts i was planning on putting in my future PC.


My planned build.

MoBO- Asus ROG Maximus Formula VI
CPu- Intel 4770k
Memory- Corsair Vengeance PRO 4 X 8 Still checking the speed vs the latency of the different models.
PSU- corsair 860AX platinum.
SSD- Samsung 256GB SSD
HDD- Seagate Barracuda 3TB HDD
Case- Corsair Obsidian 900D


Water cooling parts.

RAD- http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16237/ex-rad-412/Alphacool_NexXxoS_Monsta_Quad_120mm_Radiator_-_80mm_Thick.html

CPU waterblock- http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17580/ex-blc-1376/Koolance_CPU-380I_Intel_Liquid_Cooling_CPU_Block_-_No_Fittings_.html

GPU waterblock- I think ill wait to see how the AMD 9970 will compare against 780. But i just chose a 780 cooler for now.

Flow sensor- http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16903/ex-tub-1371/Bitspower_G14_Thread_Flow_Sensor_-_Matte_Black_BP-FS-CLBKMBK.html

Reservoir- http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9576/ex-res-157/Bitspower_Water_Tank_Z-Multi_250_Inline_Reservoir_BP-WTZM250P-BK.html

Pump- I need help choosing a pump that would be adequate for my setup.

Tubing- I was planning on rigid acrylic tubing. But i may first set up a soft tube setup; then change to rigid if i can.

Anyone have any idea's that could lower the price of this setup.
Its gonna cost quite a bit and ill have to ship everything from FrozenCPU overseas which also adds quite a bit to the price.

Advice please.


I am planning on that one radiator to cool my GPU-CPU- and connecting it to the ROG VI formula Cross Chill.

Thats why i chose a very large radiator.

Should every be ok?

Thanks.

TY.

The Swiftech MCP 655 or the Swiftech MCP 35X are two great pumps to decide on. Most will recommend the MCP 655.

When choosing separate watercooling components for a complete loop; in your case, CPU and GPU, your looking at spending $500 to $600 minimum. That's just how it is. You can buy watercooling combo sets like XSPC, but I usually recommend people to stay away from deals like that.

Watercooling can get expensive, but think of it like this: when your done installing all the components and tubing, you never have to worry about it again. smile.gif Well, until ya gotta clean the loop. rolleyes.gif

A couple of things that could lower your price.

If you go a cheaper block like the raystorm it will save you a few bucks.

Get rid of the flow sensor, you will probably be able to see the movement of the water in the res (I can in my tube res) plus it become obvious quickly that your loop isn't flowing. (plus two less fittings)

For tubing I would say go normal tubing if its the first time you are doing it. Will remove any issues with setting up the acrylic tubing. I use PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing and I am happy with it. Go clear as you can see bubbles in the loop easily. Barbs and clamps will make the cost lower. However the XSPC compression fittings are cheap in Australia.

The pump I am not sure - But I run a D5 and its great.

Also plan your loop and make sure you get 90/45deg angles if you need them or extenders etc.
