Some watercooling advice

post #1 of 3

I started buying the parts little by little to upgrade my current pc to a Nvidia 2D Surround gaming pc with video editing capabilities. As you can see on the custom purchases, I've pre-ordered the Swiftech H220X, which probably won't ship till the near end of the month so I have time to reflect on it.

My question is whether I should stick with that and add on a 120/140mm radiator on the back of the PC? I'm aiming to include the GPU Blocks as well in the next few months and change out the stock fans. However, I'm not sure if this is sufficient cooling for all of that. I do plan to overclock the cpu and the two GPUs. Would it be better for me to go with the H320 and add on the 120/140mm radiator in the back? If so, I'll just pick up the H320 that's on sale.

Any reason you're buying a self-enclosed kit and not building your own or buying a DIY kit and putting it together? You're going to need more than 240mm of rad to cool 2x780 + a 4770K.

No particular reason. Just ease I suppose. That being said, I've seen and read so many videos and guides on water cooling that I feel like I already know what to expect. I know how to bleed the system, I know how to diagnose a lot of common and uncommon problems and other things. So I suppose it wouldn't hurt to just go for a DIY kit. I've got time to rethink it though so that's why I'm asking for the advice. It doesn't have to be the closed systems. I can just buy regular radiators, a pump and do it myself no problem. Just let me know what you think I should do. I do a lot of DIY work myself from carpentry to metal work so I'm sure I'm up for the task.
