Advice on First Liquid Cooling System

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

So here's the deal. I'm soon going to be upgrading my ASUS P8Z68-V Pro/i7-2600K to the ASUS RIVBE/i7-4930K and I'd like to switch to water cooling. In the near future I will also be upgrading my dual 6990s to dual 290s. Right now I'm considering NZXT Kraken G10s for the GPUs and either the EK Supremacy or the Koolance CPU-380i. As of right now this will all be going into my Corsair Graphite 600T case. What should I be looking at as far as radiator/pump/fans? I have a sneaking suspicion that cooling both GPUs and my CPU will require radiators outside my case but I'm hoping to fit it all inside if possible. If it isn't possible to fit everything internally I am open to buying another case that *can* fit everything inside but I first need to know what I need to fit into it before I can start looking at cases.

Summary of components:
Corsair Graphite 600T (open to suggestions for other cases that are more liquid cooling friendly for a setup like mine)
ASUS Rampage IV Black Edition
Intel i7-4930K
2 x AMD Radeon 290

Thank you in advance for any advice you can provide!

Rob

Unfortunately I already have the i7-4930K ordered and I doubt the x99 will still be LGA-2011 considering it's designed for Haswell-E. So this is what I'm going to be getting. Any suggestions?

I'd include both GPUs in the loop or get an H110.

At 4.5GHZ, my 3930K is only 6*C hotter with an H110 than my open (custom) loop was. The open loop was an RX360, EK Supremacy copper, MCP655, Koolance top and reservoir, 1/2" ID 3/4" OD tubing, BP compression fittings with one 90* fitting and 3 Rexus TopMotor 96CFM leaf blowers on an FC8 fan controller. That equates to something like $45 per 1*C better. Spend the big bucks and do the maintenance for e-peen or save a few hundred dollars and have one less thing to maintain.

I won't be going back to open loops.

I'd return it... Because last I heard 4930ks are still a downgrade from 3930ks unless you want a strong IMC
