Help choosing parts for my sig rig.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Alright so this friday I will be ordering parts to cool my sig rig. 3770k & 2x evga 780 classys. I have the 750D and was planning on doing a 360mm&240mm rad config.

I live in Canada so I can't(won't) order from frozenCPU because it would cost me way to much money to ship the items. I was looking to order from Dazmode.com. I was kind of thinking to go with one of their "complete kits" and adding a 240mm rad to it. https://www.dazmode.com/store/product/dual-radiator-laing-d5-complete-watercooling-flex-kt/


Now they only actually have 1 EK block for the classy in stock. Did anyone know where I could get some that wouldn't put me on welfare? EK would cost about $180 cad per and $50 shipping.

I would be open to looking @ other e-tailors that are not in canada but can ship to canada if someone could put together a part list for me.

I was thinking that I would go with black tubing probably 1/2" ID 3/4" OD. thats fairly big tubing right? I don't think I would be using many angled connectors apart from maybe 1-3 depending.

But color scheme was kind of just black. Otherwise I think white tubing might look okay. The only part of my build that really stands out right now is the mobo, being brownish PCB and blue accents on it.(being replaced when HE comes out) Otherwise I'm not really picky on color or anything, I think the black tubing would look fairly good.


Here is a pic of my build on air atm.

Also I was going to mount the 240 along side the bottom there and intake.

Black tubing would look REALLY bland and ugly imo

Your rig looks realy nice at the moment, but I think you should get white tubing instead and shift the colour sceme to black and white, that would look good on a blue motherboard.And get white sleeved cables and the corsair sp fans, that would look amazing!!

You could also go with blue UV tubing and UV lights, that would look ok, but I would definantly suggest a white scemed cooling loop, that would look really "elegant"

Just make sure that your tubing doesnt cross over each other or makes really long curvy cuts along the case. I would suggest going res > pump > bottom 240 rad > gpu's > cpu > 360 top rad >res pump. That way it is a clean loop around the sides of the case.

As far a good e-tailer, there is a place called theKoolRoom, and PC Case Gear here in Australia, that is where I get all my water cooling stuff, they have heaps of stock for everything.

I would suggest you make your own loop instead of buying a complete, but if you want a cart, here you are:
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=wish_lists&wlcId=233248&action=wish_lists
I didnt add a pump because i didnt know what style you wanted (I would reccomend getting a bitpower res mod kit and a aqua tube to have a top inlet) a also added a 360mm crossflow so that the tubing goes from one side of the rad and out the other straigh to the res (this means no tubing cutting across the case which looks ugly)

Sorry for the long reply, I LOVE talking about watercooling.

But good luck anyway and keep us posted, I really wanna see this rig done smile.gif

Okay I just ordered my 2 EKWB for my classys.

Had a few questions still. Will getting nickel GPU blocks and copper rads/cpu block effect anything? I was planning on grabbing coloured tubing and using distilled water.

How many fittings will I need? 3 blocks ex360 ex240 bay res.

How to I connect the GPU blocks?

Do I need a dual bay res?

Copper and nickel should be fine, just stay away from aluminium. Also make sure you use a deionised water or distiller water, dont use normal tap water, and if you flush your loop with tap water, make sure you flush it with distilled to get everything out.

As far as fittings go, you will need 12, but plan your loop, also by a couple angled fittings just in case, it might be a tight turn from the bottom 240 to the gpu and maybe from the gpu to cpu. Just daw your loop and take a loop. Also, take the side panel of and take a look at the runs you will be making, that will give you a more physical idea of what type of fitting you will need.

For the gpu blocks, you can either:
Use a really short peice of tubing in between the blocks, this is really hard and you have to get the perfect measurments.
OR
you can buy one of these:
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=207_160_300_1328&products_id=25199
they make things easier and look the best. JUST MAKE SURE WITH THIS THAT THE SPACING OF YOUR GPU SLOTS IS THE SAME AS THE ADAPTER. Otherwise you will have to go with option one. You can just research that with your motherboard or check the EK website.

For the pump/res, its up to you if you want a bayres or a tube res and pump.
If you go with the bayres, know that it is hard to decouple (stop vibrations from being amplified by your case) you can buy some rubber and put it inbetween and case metal that contacts the bayres. A good bayres pump combo is the one from xspc. make sure you buy the D5 variable pump. This is a powerful pump which you can turn the speed down to quieten it up.

Okay that looks like it would be the type "terminal" for my cards. My PCIE lane spacing uses a normal asus SLI bridge(fully).

Okay here is what I found on Dazmode.com.
http://gyazo.com/fd830297b62d63aa556de214dffbfbe9

I found the EK bridge that I need but I'll have to wait until its in stock.

NOTE: I'm buying my tubing and fans from NCIX.ca.

Ill have to buy some biocide or a kill coil too right?

Also not too sure how I'll mount the pump/res.

Also just wondering if now 1/2 /34 tubing would be too thick?

Firstly, just a question, why the multiport 360 rad???? What i meant was the crossflow rad (one thread on each side of the rad)

You dont have to buy a biocide of kill coil, its not really needed for distilled water. But if you want you can buy a kill coil, or you can buy bitspower selver shining fitting which will dothe same thing.

For the pump res, you can buy a bitspower mod kit which makes the d5 pump and res a combo (one whole peice):
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12199/ex-pmp-122/Bitspower_D5_MCP655_Extreme_Pump_Mod_Top_V2_-_Acetal_BP-D5TOPP2EX-BK.html
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16077/ex-res-370/Bitspower_Dual_Single_D5_Top_Upgrade_Kit_150_-_Black_BP-D5TOPUK150P-BKBKCL.html
NOTE: you dont need to buy a res anymore, it is included, but you do need to buy both of the items in the link aswell as a pump.
Then you can just drill holes into your case to match up with the bracket:
http://www.frozencpu.com/cat/l3/g30/c97/s169/list/p1/Liquid_Cooling-PC_Water_Cooling_Reservoirs-Reservoir_Accessories-Page1.html
NOTE: you will need an aftermarket bracket like this in order to mount in to a vertical surface (like the back of your case) and to still be upright.


Also 1/2" tubing is not too thick, if anything it looks better thicker, and it is also less strain on the pump, so you will have better performance.

Here is what the mod kit looks like without the horizontal bracket:

Good luck, do you reaserch and how to put things together.

To do something a bit fresh, might wanna look at the newer white rads from Alphacool and others, white reservoir, white bitspower fittings, white coolant from Mayems
