post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
high guys. im new to this site and liquid cooling. i just got a new rig and im looking to do some more customizing to it. currently running

Amd FX 8350
Sabertooth 990 FX R.2.0
BIOS version 2104
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
EVGA GeForce GTX770 SuperClocked
CORSAIR CX series CX750
windows 7 64bit
9 fans including a Corsair H100i with 2 corsair sp120s for push only
Coolermaster Scout 2 case.


basically im lookin to mod it some more and i also am going to do some oc stuff so its going to be practical as well. i did just buy that corsair h100i last week. im just wanting to know kinda the ends and outs . im lookin to make my own set up piece by piece. i was also wondering if i can use my radiator from my h100i ? any and all info is greatly appreciated.

thanks Anthony

the h100i rad shouldnt go in a custom loop. the rad is aluminum will cause corrosion. anti-corrosives dont stop corrosion they only slow it down. sell the h100i when you have enough money saved and it will buy your new copper rad.

http://www.frozencpu.com/ Is where you want to go.

Maybe to start out you should buy one of the XSPC kits that comes with a radiator, reservoir, tubing, fittings, a CPU block, etc, and then build from there.

it depends on where youre located as to where to buy parts from. us, europe, blah blah. if youre in the us and in new york, you dont want to order from frozen. taxes buddy, taxes.

im also in ohio now. i get everything from ppcs. and dont forget the discount code: ocn55 good for 5.5% off

not exactly water flowing through it and they are incredibly restrictive being optimized for low flow.
