[First Time Watercooler] Which Radiator or Fans To Choose

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Doing my first watercooling loop, cooling the following:

i7-4770k
2x GTX Titan

Motherboard: GB GA-Z87X-OC Force

here are the parts I currently have: (minus the case, waiting for it to release in a couple weeks)

I am interested to see if anyone has any thoughts on the current loop system I have listed, and if anyone can suggest a good radiator setup. I have no experience in the watercooling world, so I have just gone by reviews and some research I have found to pick my parts, though I am left clueless as to which radiator I should use, and if I should use 1 or 2 radiators or split my loop into 2 separate loops.

D5 Swiftech MCP655 Water Pump
Koolance 380i CPU Block
PrimoFlex Advanced LRT
MCRES Micro Rev2 Reservoir
Swiftech Compression Fitting

The case can support one 360mm, one 280mm, and one 120mm radiator simultaneously

It seems the radiator brand is the least important thing I need to look at and pay most attention to the FPI and fans I am going to use, I want the most cooling I can possibly get with the least amount of noise. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Would love to hear personal thoughts on the different types of fans out there.
I do believe my 360mm radiator can be basically as thick as they come, while the 280mm rad may need to be a little slimmer.

(360 will be front mounted, 280 will be top mounted.)

The case I will be using is the Cosmos SE

Thanks, still trying to get some personal opinions on fans, I am seeing a lot of mixed reviews for each of the fans listed in that guide.
I am still browsing the forum at least.

Also, I read somewhere last night that someone just released a fan made specifically for radiator cooling though I am having trouble finding the thread now, if anyone has any information on any "new" fans that are "supposed" to be unique for radiator cooling lmk.
