have always been wondering how much shipping from the US to SG is...if it is relatively inexpensive, i wouldn't mind purchasing some stuff from Frozencpu. as for taxes, it's any package over 400sgd is taxed i think.

Yea it depends, I used performancePC when in SG and frozenCPU while in SA. Amazon free global shipping is the best.

The rest of their stuff is clearly built to price rather than quality. That is fine if you just want the job done and most of it will work just fine, but I prefer to pay a bit more for things that look good too. It is good that there is other options than over priced bitspower but a middle ground would be nice. At the moment it just seems mainly to be lots of expensive Bitspower and lots of cheap Alphacool.

It seemed to me to be a fair while after the Nickel problems that they stopped stocking EK. I think maybe driven by local internet and forum mania where for a while everybody was proving they were in the know in the water cooling scene by dissing EK. No actual experience required. Until they realised that no other company was going to step up and do better. I lost count of the number of times a passionate EK hater would eventually get whatever EK block they needed that no other company bothered to make and would be still muttering how bad EK was in their build logs to save face or something. Just so irrational.

Depends what your buying I guess, the UT60 420mm rads weren't exactly cheep and I prefer performance over aesthetics if it's possible to fix it DIY style - aka paint the rad etc

What would fit the middle ground though? you have Bitspower at the top and Alphacool at the bottom (in your opinion), Primochill? Phobya??

They stopped stocking EK parts due to the hysteria, I remember them commenting on it on there facebook page, they did the same with EVGA gear when the local distributor was taking months at a time to handle RMA requests

Firstly loving reading through and seeing what is possible with this case, some amazing systems.

I am building a system with the 750D and need advise on the cooling, note attached below.

Does this look like a reasonable set up.

Originally I had it configured to push hot air out the top and back only and pull through the front but after doing a bit of reading I am going to change it as per the below pics.

Advice? I want to keep out as much dust as possible. Also what filter can I use for the bottom fan? And is the standard filter for the top ok when its sucking air in?

Thanks again in advance everyone.

(note picture below is not of my system just how I will set it up, as I havent finished building yet, specs included FYI)






  • While you have a 50/50 setup going which will work, I personally like more air in than the 50/50. With that said, PSU air flow should pretty much not be looked as an approach since PSU fans barely spin. For my PSU, I have it's intake fan inside (user preference) mainly to create a "filter" for the air that does go in to the PSU (less dust in PSU).
  • As for the top setup, I would consider all intake and placing the H60 as one of them (adding that 3rd top fan also). Having H60 as intake will guarantee cool air for CPU cooling (not sure if H60 is built as exhaust only). This will also further prevent the top from recycling it's own air (exhaust getting sucked back in by that front top intake).
  • The back fan would be an exhaust and that will guarantee positive pressure. Front and bottom look good to ensure your GPUs getting fresh air and exhausted through the card's exhaust.
  • Another reason for having more in is the air will escape through cracks and as discussed before, if you plan on leaving front panel alone, the front fans take a hit in effectiveness due to the restricted intake of it.

If you follow the basic case rule of more positive pressure than negative (more air going in), then dust should not be an issue. For me, the top filter that came with the case is fine, but there are "after market" filter systems that can add more filtration if needed. JamaicanReaper and a couple others had posted them before.

@JamaicanReaper: Maybe something else worth adding to Original Post (the aftermarket filter kit)?

Hi Guys

I've recently made the move from a console and this is my first gaming rig. I've always built my own PC's, just never a gaming one. It's not quite finished, I need to add a cooling set up now and also some sleeved cabling to tidy everything up. I've been running at stock to date and still actually have the stock cooler on the CPU. It will also obviously be my first time water cooling and I'm in two minds. On one hand I really have no idea just how much I want to over clock things, and to be honest I really don't need to at the moment. So with that in mind do I just buy a closed loop cooler from Corsair and save myself about £350, or do I build a custom loop to include the 780ti?

If I do go full loop then this is what I've decided on:

XSPC EX 360 & EX 240 £102

Photon 170 tube Res £38

D5 Vario pump and Acetal top £81

Raystorm CPU Block £51

Full cover 780ti Block and back plate £120


That's over £390 before I add the tubing, fittings and coolant, so probably £450 total. That's £350 more than a H100i or H105.



A couple of questions really...Initially I purchased both a 120hz Benq gaming monitor and also a 1440p resolution Dell. I wanted to see for myself what gaming on both would be like. I actually thought the jump from 60hz to 120hz wouldn't affect me and I'd favour the 1440p over the two. This was probably the main reason for getting the 780ti in the first place to play at this resolution at max settings. It turns out I can't stand 60hz any more! It's just night and day difference when it comes to gaming and not just FPS either. For me at least anyway. I know there's the Asus ROG monitor out shortly, but for that kind of money I'd want an IPS panel I think. The Benq will do me fine for now. So with all that in mind, when would I need to overclock the 780ti playing at 1080p 120hz? I could probably just add another and go SLI in 12 months-18 months if it started to struggle on new games, so do I really need to water cool it? It seems to most people it's a hobby rather than it being essential but there's no doubting it looks amazing. smile.gif



Here's a few pics of my setup to date. (Sorry quality is poor, taken on my mobile)

And yes, that is an optical drive in there!! I still buy CD's and just rip them into flac format. smile.gif I don't actually use the cd again after that but I like to have something to look at and collect. smile.gif

You can always get a USB drive to ODD so that you don't need it in your case btw. To address your concerns water cooling isn't necessary and the gains made by ocing your gpu are going to be minimal due to heat. People OC gpus on water all the time but it seems like they aren't getting much more than 5-10% out of them. You will definitely benefit from SLIing over a modest OC. Watercooling is for hobbyist, silent rigs, and extreme performance where heat is your limiting factor. If these interest you, absolutely do custom. I can't get enough of it and would recommend it in a second, but it's expensive and not for everyone. Can't speculate at the difference between 60hz and 120. But games seem to be increasing fairly quickly where a SLI 780 at 1440 isn't unreasonable if you are cranking your AA.

Just how much maintenance is required with a full loop, how often does the average person change the water? Also how easy is it to do? I've watched a few youtube video's and it seems straight forward enough. Do most people have special drain and fill ports for example? and finally is adding a gpu block a quick and easy process if I were to just go with a cpu setup for starters?

as long as the coolant is still clean/clear and temps havent seen a drastic change, you need to change your coolant out if you used distilled. some coolant makers say change it out i think its every year.
draining is easy with a drain port and just a little involved if there isnt a drain port.
adding a gpu is as easy as draining your loop, running your new tubing, refilling and bleeding while checking for leaks.

adding new components is usually pretty easy as it just needs new plumbing and maybe an extra radiator if you don't plan very far ahead. Do yourself a favor and at least have a drainport built into your loop. It will save you a lot of aggravation. The fillport is a bonus, I don't use it. I just am easily able to get to my res to fill but some people like having it. It's up to you. I use Pastel coolant by mayhem it needs to be changed about once every 2-3 years. Water I would change at least once a year.
