Bit Fenix Prodigy Liquid cooled, first time doing this, and would love some suggestions.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello! So I have been spending a massive amount of time researching water cooling since this is my first time doing it I would love any help/suggestion. I'm doing a mini itx build using a Bit Fenix Prodigy Green edition with window. All of my parts are coming from my last build. All Now I'm just trying to figure out what to order. Here is my part list.

Case: Bit Fenix Prodigy
CPU: I7 3770K
GPU: M.S.I. Lightning 680
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77 Deluxe
Ram: Corsair vengeance (2 sticks) 8gb 1600
PSU: Corsair GS800
SSD: Samsung 840 500 gb
HDD: 1tb Western Digital Green

Liquid Cooling Components:
GPU COOLER:EK MSI GeForce 680 GTX Lightning
Radiator: Swiftech MCR220-XP
Pump:Swiftech MCR220-XP
Resaivor:Swiftech MCRES-MICRO
Fans:Noctua NF-F12 PWM 120mm Case Fan
CPU Block:XPSC Raystorm
Fitings:Monsoon Chain gun
FOAM PADDING:Phobya Noise Destructor V.1 for Pump Decoupling
RADIATOR 2:Swiftech MCR120-XP

Right now I'm just really not sure what to do. I'm not overclocking my cpu or gpu at all. I'm wondering if I could just stick with the single dual 120 mm radiator and be fine. Or maybe not even liquid cooling my cpu at all and just air cooling. If any of you guys can leave comments it would be much appreciated since I need a little bit of guidance haha

Well it's effects silent, I plan on bringing it to lan parties a lot and heard if you put a big cooler like the noctua dh14 and move around it damages the cpu. Finally I have the m.s.i lightning. Because I have that card it pushes hot air all around the case. If I had a stock cooler with a single fan it would take the re and shoot it out of the case. And this is a problem since the case I have has a window instead a vent next to the gpu.
