Need help with custom W/C loop.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey im kind of new to water cooling. Ive built PCs before but this is my first time watercooling one. These are the parts i ahve that i want to cool:

Mobo: Maximus VI Formula
CPU: i5-4670k
GPU: Asus GTX 760

I was looking at this kit: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/21236/ex-wat-271/XSPC_Raystorm_750_EX360_Extreme_Universal_CPU_Water_Cooling_Kit_New_Rev_4_Pump_Included_w_Free_Dead-Water.html

Is this a good kit, good brand, and worth the price?

And i hear the 760 has the same circuit board as the 680 so i was looking at this:
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16739/ex-blc-1192/Aquacomputer_aquagraFX_680_GTX_Full_Coverage_Liquid_Cooling_Block_-_Nickel_Plated_23541.html

I know it may not be worth WC a mid range card, but im doing the CPU and MOBO so why not? Ill most likely be SLI'ing.

Any help or advice would be awesome. If anyone knows any parts ive missed let me know. Also if anyone else knows of any better kits for my cpu and gpu around 300$ thatd be helpful im a little confused about it.

The Rasa 750 pump should be fine with the raystorm and the EK supremacy universal vga block. I don't know if it would be enough for SLI though unless you ran the VGA blocks in parallel.

The above kit I linked has a D5 which is more than enough to run several blocks and radiators.

If you are going to go with the Rasa 750 I would recommend that you buy the EK Supremacy Universal VGA Block Bridge Edition.

If money is tight the Rasa 750 is perfectly fine. Later on if you need more pumping power you can buy a new old stock DDC-1T from bmaverick for $35 and run it with the Rasa 750 and you will have more than enough pumping power for whatever you need to add.


Either way you will need 2 extra fittings with either of those kits. The D5 kit comes with XSPC 7/16 x 5/8 compression fittings. The Rasa 750 kit comes with 1/2 xspc barbs. Both are good and the 1/2 barbs on 7/16 hose has a very tight fit.


The universal VGA block is perfectly fine for the 770 but you should have some airflow over the 770 so that air is going over the VRM heat sink. Full coverage blocks usually have higher restriction or lower cooling ability than an EK Supremacy which uses a conventional CPU style block (better than water channel style VGA blocks) has a very low restriction so it should be compatible with the Rasa 750.

If you buy the bridge edition you will need 2 90 elbows or the bridge adapter (which is a 90).
