[HELP] First WC Build mITX

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all!

I have had a Bitfenix Prodigy collecting dust in a box for a year now and have finally decided to do something with it, build a little water cooled rig! I have done as much research as I could over the last two weeks but nothing is better than first hand expert advice from the forums. I will be cooling these parts below:

Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell 3.4GHz
GeForce GTX 670 2GB
I will be using a Gigbyate GA-Z87N-WIFI mobo

and a friend has given me brand new parts for my loop, which saves me a bit of money:
Swiftech MCRES Micro Revision 2 Reservoir
Swiftech MCP355 12v Water Pump (Native 3/8")
EK DDC X-Top Pump
PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT 3/8in.ID x 5/8in.OD Tubing- Crystal Clear

Parts I plan on buying (any suggestions would be very helpful):
XSPC Razor GTX 670 Waterblock
XSPC EX240 Dual 120mm Low Profile Split Fin Radiator (top mounted, slim would allow me to use a fan controller)
EK Supreme LTX Intel CPU Liquid Cooling Block - Acetal
Bitspower 3/8 x 5/8 Compression Fittings with various Adapters where needed

I am aware I should have two rads for better cooling, but what it be possible with just this one rad? My ideal loop would look like: RAD > RES > PUMP > CPU > GPU

Any suggestions on my selection of parts or loop would be helpful!

Loop does not matter as long as res is above pump.

While your set up is not ideal, it's definitely good with what you are working with. You might be able to add a 120MM onto the drive cage. Just a thought.
