Looking at getting into watercooling advice on parts

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I'm looking at changing from my 600T to a switch 810 or a 750D and I was wondering if this setup will be good and will actually work with a AMD 8350?



Is it over kill for a single loop CPU setup if so can you suggest cheaper?

You can never have overkill in terms of rad space... biggrin.gif

For recommendations, first of all you need a D5 top for that pump, since it won't have any G1/4 ports at stock.
The pump looks a bit expensive, along with some other parts; you could probably get them cheaper elsewhere.
The fans could also be gotten for cheaper at NewEgg or Amazon or a mainstream store like that.
You don't need colored fluid when you have colored tubing (1 bottle might not be enough anyway) so just go with distilled + biocide + killcoil.

Other than that you are looking good for just a CPU loop, you can easily add a GPU to the loop later with that setup.

Here's a shopping cart I was looking at from Sidewinder, the only things it's missing are a pump top and fans (I was looking at a couple Cougar Turbine 4-packs from NewEgg). The tubing is the wrong size and the backplate is mismatched, so ignore those (I wasn't going to actually buy anything). In fact, this shopping cart is cheaper than yours even though you have much less stuff (even including fan costs), so you could definitely shave off a lot of dollars from that shopping cart.

sounds good thank you, I honestly know jack about watercooling is there a way to get a pump without a module top? and I have a Galaxy GTX 660 TI would that water block work if I was looking at doing it in the future?

It's probably better to get a cheap top for $30 or $40 or so like this one, but you can get a G1/4 pre-tapped pump at a lot of places. I'm not aware of any full cover blocks for the 660 Ti, especially since you have a custom manufacturer, so if you do decide to water cool the GPU you will have to go with a universal block like this one and passively cool the VRMs and other parts using heatsinks. If you don't want to do that leaving the GPU on air is fine, it just won't run as quiet. You have some things you could change in your list so I would do some more research.
