3930K + GTX TITAN + 650D = need help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I currently have a H100 but want to try fully water cooling my computer. I was going to get one of the Swiftech or XSPC water cooling kits but they are likely not going to be enough to cool a 3930K and GTX TITAN together, especially when overclocked. Because of this I want to build a fully custom loop.

What I need (let me know where I should make changes):

1. Case is a 650D.

2. I want a 200 mm rad up front, 120 mm rad at the back, and 240 mm rad up top. I've read that the front 200 mm fan mounting holes are not standard on the 650D and I need to make some modifications or use alternative methods of mounting.

This seems to be the only 200 mm rad available: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12103/ex-rad-186/Phobya_Xtreme_200mm_Radiator_-_Version_2_-_Full_Copper.html?tl=g30c95s1344

What should I get for the 120 mm rad and the 240 mm rad? What about the fans?

3. Will one large pump be sufficient or should I have two or more pumps placed in "varying" locations?

4. What about the reservoir? One will be enough?

5. Does the flow direction matter? CPU ---> GPU or GPU ---> CPU?

Radiator choice the XSPC RX series is the best with 1200rpm or below fans. Highly recommend those radiators.
For fans the Scythe Gentle Typhoon are great, get the 1850rpm (AP-15) together with a fan controller. Silent, reliable and got very good pressure (can be used in case itself too).

If you pick the Laing D5/Switec MCP655 (same pump) it will be more than enough power for a big loop. Great strong pump and reliable. Only pump I ever use in my builds.
Only one reservoir is needed if you only are building one loop. Actually you don't need reservoir at all, you can use a fillport (split T-line), but reservoir would be good for you since it is the first time with custom loop. Makes it easier to bleed out all the air of the system.

Remember to put reservoir above the pump, so it does not starve for water.
Loop order I usually do this: Reservoir > pump > radiator > cpu > gpu
But the order does not matter really, only thing that matters is that the reservoir and pump is first.

What you need to get a complete custom loop yourself is this: Reservoir, pump, cpu block, gpu block, radiator, fittings, fans and some coolant.
Much better to pick the parts yourself than getting a pre-done one.

For coolant the best is to use distilled water with some PT nuke or IandH Dead-Water Copper Sulfate in it, this is the best for radiators and the components.

Sidewindercomputers also ship internationally, used both them and Frozencpu to Norway before. Very good both of them!

Have fun building smile.gif
