MAking first build got most parts need pump/resv suggestions

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
so I was looking at : http://www.xoxide.com/xspc-raystorm750rx360watercoolingkit.html

Since that Block is the one i most likely be buying (im amd). And i want a dual 120x3 rad.


NOW the only problem i have with that kit is that My case is 3- 5.25 bays and im using 2 ( 1 for dvds for work, 1 for fan controller)
Note: this is dual bay reservoirs .

So im looking for options now.

I will still like the same cpu block.
Mostlikely the same rad ( unless some one suggest a better/cost effective option).

Tubing will be blue/uv blue

will use compress instead of barb

reservoir ??? pump???? reservoir/pump combo????

hints, ideas?

Depends on your case man. What case are you running? Y U NO have sig rig? D:

Any reservoir will do, just get one you like and make sure, by reading reviews that it doesn't have leakage problems.

As far as pump goes, a D5 pump will be your best bet.

Also, you can get rid of that DVD player. External blu ray players cost less than 40 bucks on Amazon. That's personally what I'm doing when I get my water cooling set up. I'll be using a a dual bay res myself. It's just really easy to use in my case. (No pun intended)

Why do you need dual 360s?

I added the signature. tought i did it i guess i mistakenly removed it when i added the korean PLS club line...

Anyways, not aiming for two 360 rads, just 1 - 360 and 1 - 120. Sometimes i need to boot from CD, external does not help in that cases

Theres a d5 on sale atm. (used) ill ask seller how much

You can set it in the bios to boot from usb DVD/blu ray drive. biggrin.gif

With your case in mind. I'd suggest getting dual 240s. Same amount of space and you don't have to move any of your drives. (Minus the HDD/SSDs) which you should do anyway because that just promotes horrible airflow like that)

It might be little difficult but I'd suggest mounting the SSDs in the back,. of if you have enough clearance on the side of the 5.25 mount bays and the shove your HDD into 5.25 inch adapter.
