Are these watercooling parts compatible?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So this is my first loop and I just wanted to make sure the parts were compatible with each other and also if it is ok to order one or two parts at a time? I plan on watercooling my GTX 770 Classi once the waterblock is available.

CPU Block - EK Supremacy Clean CSQ - Acetal (I really like the look of this block)

Pump- EK-D5 Varop X-Top - Acetal (Incl. Pump)

Rad - Alphacool NexXxos UT60 Full Copper 360mm (going in the top)

Res - EK-RES X3 250 Reservoir

Could be changing depending on upcoming mod to my 900D

Also is it possible to attach the pump and res together? If so what would I need?

A bunch of Bit's Power compression fittings (1/2" ID 3/4" OD) including 45 degree rotary some extenders ( are these required and what are they generally used for?)

A Bit Power Quick Disconnect not sure also how these work

XSPC FLX Tubing Clear

6 Corsair AF SP120 High Static Pressure Fans (Planning on painting the rings orange)

8 Corsair AF120 High airflow fans for case cooling

2 Lamptron 6 Channel Liquid Cooling Controllers for watercooling and case aircooling

Mayhams Pastel Orange Concentrate with Phobya Clear 1000ml coolant

Using Pastel should I still add the silver to the res and use biocidal?

Sorry for the wall of text and being such a noob

Yes, all those parts will work with each other.

If you want to connect the pump directly to the res, you have two options. You can either use a male to male fitting or get a pump top that incorporates the res into the pump top. EK makes one in 140mm and 100mm

The Rotary adapter are used in situations when the turn off a waterblock would be too tight to make with a regular straight fitting. Extenders do just that, extend. The only place I've ever used them is if I need to come off a radiator with a 45 degree fitting and the fans on the radiator would get in the way, I used a 20mm extender to raise the 45 degree fitting enough to clear the fan. Quick disconnect fittings can be used multiple ways. Often they are put between blocks so you can easily disconnect certain parts to change hardware. Others, like me, use them as an easy way to drain the loop.

The Corsair SP120s are good fans, but then are known for being loud. I would recommend Gentle Typhoons. They have the best noise to performance ratio and have great static pressure. Coolermaster R4's are also a good option at a lower price and have similar performance to Gentle Typhoons, but are noticeably louder. Not sure how they compare to SP120's in noise though. And you don't really need two fan controllers. If you that is the Fan Controller Touch you have 30W per channel, that's enough to controller all the fans you have with ease. If it's the CW611, then it's 36W per channel, which is even better.

The Pastel Coolant has an anti corrosive and anti biocide already in it so you don't need to add anything extra.

Wow thank you for all the information! REP+
would this fitting work for the pump to res? and how should I go about planning the build before having the parts to try to figure out where all the fittings go?

If you have the budget for rotaries and extenders, include a bunch of them. They're very helpful. It's not a must, but as I said - it's helpful.

Well, for me is easy to visualize how everything would go. So it's not hard to plan out my build.

If you need help, head over to the official corsair case owners thread, that should give you a ton of ideas.
