Suggestions / Help with water cooling a new build.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

This will be my first water cooled PC, been reading on lots of guides about it just not sure what i should start with.

So far i'm considering the water cooling kit from EK while purchasing the extra bits i'll be needing. http://www.ekwb.com/shop/kits-cases/kits/ek-kit-h3o-360-hfx.html


The components being used http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3dt2H

I already have 3 sets of them sitting in my living room.

I will be ordering everything online since water cooled equipment are non existent where i live. (Hence why i'm asking for help from people with experience)

Would really appreciate people who have a water cooled 900D to help out.

Hello, and welcome to the world of watercooling! First tip: The amount of radiator to use is, as a minimum, 120mm for each component plus 120mm. So, for a four GPU and one CPU loop (if that is what you plan to cool) would require about 720mm of radiator - two 360 radiators for example.

Before I can give any more advice, are you planning to watercool everything, or just the CPU? That'll help with recommendations.

Regards
Luke
