First time watercooling, not sure what the best parts to buy are

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
For building normal PCs, it's very easy to find the right price per performance part for your rig that's compatible with everything else. However, I haven't found much in terms of a guide for watercooling parts.

I want to watercool the following:
i7 3770k
asus z77 saber
evga gtx 780 SLI
ripjaws ddr3 1600 8GBx2

I have a nice h100i on my cpu but I'd like to build a custom loop. I know what the generic line of parts are needed, res, rad, etc, but don't know what would be the best price per performance.

In gpu terms, help me buy the 7970s/780s, not the titans or the 7750s.

What case do you have... that is important in choosing the rad size.

If you can fit a 360 then this kit

If you can fit a 420 (3x140) then this kit

(2) full coverage blocks

(1) matching serial bridge

(2) extra 7/16" x 5/8" Compression fittings

and that should be everything.

Do not buy or use a kill coil and if you buy a video card waterblock that has nickel plating make sure you use a coolant that has ethylene glycol in it.
