This will be my first time water cooling. How is my setup???

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This will be my first time water cooling and I have done lots of research and I have been working on this parts list for a while. I am pretty sure everything is compatible. I would appreciate it if you can check compatibility for me though, this is my first time. I think it is going to be a pretty awsome loop.

You can save by getting a pwm control pump instead of spending $160 on a controller that wont do much.
You could get a pump like the mcp655 with 5 levels where you turn to the desired speed and also save $160.

Avoid the flow meter incase it wears down/breaks and ends up stopping the flow of your loop, I would get a better type of tubing as well, I personally avoid the high FPI radiator to run slower speed fans but the black ice can perform nice at high speed fans.

Sorry for the "negative" post but I hope its constructive criticism, use my opinion to help you research, it's never goo to buy a few parts or a bunch at once or with small amounts of research.

Use http://martinsliquidlab.org/ to see a lot of tests on radiators / blocks / pumps. You will clearly see what and why are better choices and how to save money, wish you best of luck in the build!
