opinion on new WC loop (first loop)

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
SO im making my first build and after several references and help from different members such as :
jmattes
fanboy88
kizwan

Among others heres what i have so far:

wanted 3/8-5/8 but there werernt the fittings in that size so went with 1/4 to 1/2 as suggested

This are all from jabtech (best bang for buck)

Im concern about compatibility (will they all fit) are the pump/reservoir compatible? And mostlimportant.... Am i mising something? (i have fans already)





it will also go to a ek gtx 680 water block

Your pump is not made for that reservoir. Also think of any easy way to drain and fill.

I find thinner tubing easier to manage. Also, plan out where you plan to mount everything and consider 45 or 90 degree adapters.

KK i got confused due to this combo on frozen:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/7272/ex-pmp-63/XSPC_Laing_DDC_Reservoir_Pump_Attachment_w_MCP-350355_No_Fittings.html?tl=g30c97s152

I tought it was the same reservoir and pump

Thats why i wanted to consult first since the one in jabtech did not say mcp35x like the one in frozen.

What pump/res would you suggest?

The reservoir and pump are compatible, it will work fine.

The pump and res in your OP list are exactly the same as the link from FrozenCPU
