Proposed WC Build (2nd time)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Ok, this is my second time going at it and I still need some guidance. I originally wanted to stuff all my components in a NZXT case, but I took the plunge and bought a 900D to stuff the following recent purchases:

  • ASUS MAXIMUS VI FORMULA
  • Intel 4770K
  • 2x Asus R9 290x's
  • 2x Samsung SSD's
  • 1x 1TB WD Drive
  • Blu Ray Player/DVD/CD drive
  • (Ram Salvaged from old system)
  • Corsair AX1200I

Personally I was going to stick it out with air cooling, but I figured the cards might suffocate if I don't add any extra fans. So I minus well go all the way with the WC loop instead of investing in unnecessary fans.

So with that being said, here is what I'm proposing for WC loop:
  • 1x EK CoolStream 480 XT (TOP)
  • 1x Alphacool Nexxos ST30 (Bottom)
  • 1x EK Dual Bay Reservoir
  • 1x Koolance CPU block (380I)
  • 2x EK Radeon R9-290X VGA Liquid Cooling Block - Acetal + Nickel
  • 1x Alphacool VPP655 Variable Speed Pump - HF Top Edition
  • 8x SP Corsair Fans
  • **Undecided for Fittings/Tubing**




As for my concerns:
  • Do I have enough RAD and pump coverage for what I'm cooling?
  • Is this flow order correct? Bay Res > Motor > Bottom Rad > GPU's > Top Rad > Chipset > CPU > Back to Bay Res
  • Are there any special bridges or fittings I could use for the GPU blocks?
  • How are Monsoon fittings? 3/8 5/8 Tubing ok?

Any words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated.

I used Alphacool compression fittings in my sig rig (check build log). Super high quality and reeaallly sexy with the black tubing I used.
