Need help water cooling my pc. WHAT SHOULD I BUY? - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Do keep in mind that you will pay more for shipping, and likely pay duty charges, ordering from the US. Sometimes there is no choice but to buy certain items from the US.
But have a look at Dazmode, they are in Ontario:
www.dazmode.com/store/
You may wish to check out the XSPC kits there as well, to suit your budget.
A full-out custom system is best, but can get costly.
I'm using the EK 7950 blocks, I have the copper/acrylic version on my 7950's, and they are working well.
But make sure they are compatible with your 7950 first:
www.coolingconfigurator.com

Idk if that RX 240 rad will clear the mobo in the top of the 200R though, if that is where you intend to mount it.
As for the fittings, they would need to be the same size as your tubing, and you have to decide on compression or barb fittings, color, brand etc.

You can get the tubing at a local hardware store for pennies on the dollar and you can buy used like a pump and rad and get some good deals as there a lot of water coolers selling there stuff all the time on this forum. When i got into water cooling 3 years ago I got everything for $150. I would recommend a triple rad with that setup if you plan on cooling a cpu and gpu as they get really hot. As for coolant you can just get distilled water from the store for like $1 a gallon. You would need a pump, tubing, rad, and 2 blocks. Shouldnt cost over $300 for those parts new and even less if they are used. I put a quick list together which was a mcp655 pump $67, swifttech rad 320 qp $68, and a xspc block for $50. And then you factor in about $10 for tubing , $1 for the water and $100 for the gpu block you chose and it comes out to $296 + $35 for shipping.. I used performance pc for the pricing

I agree that saving some dough on used parts can be a good plan.
However, the op is in Canada, and some of the US-based sellers on the OCN Marketplace won't ship to Canada.
The shipping costs you quoted may be lower than they would be to have them shipped to Canada, and don't include the duty that is charged as it crosses the border.

Is aquatuning.us out of question? They often have very good sales. I got my fans for 2.5€ piece and barbs for 1€ each. Their bulk pvc tubing also has served me well.

Considering the radspace you have available, cooling both the cpu and gpu might be tricky or you will have to grab at least both 240 + 120 to get decent temps. I would consider saving up and get it done properly or not at all.

Or how about throwing the money at a 4670k+mobo combo? That should be within your budget and would definitely yield better performance bump.

I'll think about my options and go from their. maybe just do a cpu loop for now?....

I went for the cpu and mobo combo as you described. I will do the water cooling thing the right way in a few months time...
