First time water cooling.. Urgent need of help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been doing tons of research regarding water cooling and I know the basics but I need help picking parts and a setup. I'd highly appreciate any help I can get.
Going with a red theme
Build:
i7 4770k
Asus Maximus VI Formula
16gb Kingston HyperX Beast RAM
3TB WD Black HDD
Samsung 840 PRO 256gb SSD
2X GTX 780TI
Corsair 750D(I'm actually getting the 760t when it comes out on the 17th but it's basically identically besides the completely open side panel)
RM1000 (Not sure if it's big enough if it isn't please let me know)

Parts I'm considering: Completely open to anyone telling me exactly what I should get. You guys know much more than me regarding this so feel free to baby me with this. I'm just posting here to see what's best to get so I don't waste my money.

TUBING: PrimoFlex Advanced LRT 10ft Tubing - 3/8in. ID X 5/8in. OD or 3/8in. ID X 1/2in. OD(Really not sure what size tubing I should go whichever is more convenient but still looks really good)
PUMP: Alphacool VPP655 - G1/4 IG complete with D5 HF Top

RESERVOIR: Alphacool Cape Corp Coolplex Pro 25 LT - 250mm( I want an internal res that looks good but isn't too big, I couldn't find a size between 150mm and 250mm) I also need to know how and where to mount it. If there's additional items I need to mount any reservoir) Prefer if its red or can hold a red led since I'm going with a red theme.

Radiator: Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper Triple 120mm Radiator
I need an additional radiator since I have two graphics cards so let me know which one I should get and if I should get a different radiator as well instead of what I listed above

CPU BLOCK: Koolance CPU-380I Intel Liquid Cooling CPU Block

GPU BLOCK:
XSPC Razor GTX Titan / 780 / 780 Ti Full Coverage VGA Block - Reference Design(I may only get one 780ti then get another in the future so factor that into what block I should get)

This is the current set up I'm thinking of. I don't know where I should mount the reservoir. I only need to mount one HDD and I can do that in the optical drive bay if need be or what ever works best. Please feel free to modify it or tell me what would be best for the setup as well as the parts. I also need to know what accessories I'm going to need besides compression fittings. Like if I need something extra to mount a reservoir etc.


I'm pretty clueless when it comes to all of this so thanks so much for all of your time and help. It's greatly appreciated.

Cant help you on the other stuff, but for the reservoir, id suggest putting it either on top of the second drive cage or immediately behind the front radiator. Failing that, I'd suggest you switch to a 5.25" bay res simply because you have the space available for one.
