Water Cooling Build [Help]

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Okay so I want to do my first ever custom water cooling loop in the Bitfenix Prodigy case. I need to know what radiators option I have for this case I would like to have a setup like the one in this video.

I am not sure if I would have to do any specific case modifications for this to work like this sir's build did.
I know I want a tube res like his and compression fittings, I am not sure what fans, tubing,pump,cpu and gpu block, or coolant to use.
The trouble that I am having since this is my first time and all is the fact that it is such a small case but I know it will still work. I am just not sure what all will fit in this case, I plan on removing all HDD cages to accommodate the radiators, pump, etccc...

These are the components that will be in my Mini-ITX system

Motherboard (Can't Decide, but I want to overclock)
Two I am choosing from
LINK: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157312 (cheaper)
LINK: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131840 (supposed to be good for overclocking, but front i/o has trouble reaching connectors)

CASE: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811345016

CPU: Intel i7 2700K (already owned)

RAM: Not sure yet would like a good 8GB kit for overclocking

GPU: Not sure which GPU I should get yet I want one thats mid grade that will play most games that will be good for overclocking. Probably around 300$ range.

PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139056

In all I probably want to spend around 700-800$ for the PC components no more. Things I need..
-MOBO
-PSU
-RAM
-CASE
-GPU

Things I don't need...
-CPU
-HDD
-SSD

So if you guys have recommendations for the GPU and RAM that would be awesome.

Okay now on to the water cooling loop, I probably want to spend around 300-400$ on a watercooling loop hopefully with two radiators and a water block for cpu and gpu. With that said this is where I need most of the help I do not know which parts are good which tubings and fittings fit what. My goal in this loop is for amazing cooling for overclocking but also a quiet system.

If anyone with a good amount of experience with custom loops is willing to contact me and give me us help on Skype that would be awesome too! Skype Username: saidgcameron

Why not save yourself a ton of money and get 2 aio coolers, I think you can fit coolers with 240 rads in the case too. Lapp the base plate on the cooler and CPU if you don't need a warranty an get good fans and your set... I've got an itx build and 2 aio's and the cost is probably around $140 total for the cooling and I don't see anything over 60c....
