Need advice on build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys looking to do my first watercooling build so I'm a little lost on what to get for some stuff.
Money isn't an issue so I want the best parts I can get.
Right now I will be cooling a 780ti KPE and 4820k but will look to expand to another GPU and Mobo in the future.
Working in a 750d case so I want a 120x3 on top (can fit a 60mm) with just push and a 140x2 in the front can fit a Monsta with push pull

Which is better a SR-1 or UT60? And GT Ap-15s best for these?

Is getting the 280 80mm monsta the best option (having trouble finding good 140mm static pressure fans)

ddc or d5 pump optimal? sound doesn't bother me to much unless its crazy loud.

Getting the Ek block for the GPU as there are no others and possibly the EK supremacy for the CPU does it matter if I get the nickle or Copper one?

Personally I like the UT60s- I have two 480s and the are great Rads with low fin density where the SR1s have higher fin density and are still good but I prefer the UT60s. You cant go wrong with GT AP15s but they are getting harder to find as I believe that that they have stopped production.

Get a D5. I got two naked Alphacool D5s and they are powerful and almost completely inaudible, arguably the best pumps around.

I would personally try to stick to copper and keep all future block purchases copper and try not to mix metals. There wont be much or any difference in temps but I have read too many horror stories about nickel plating causing issues in loops. Water-cooling is very subjective, have fun.thumb.gif

As far as my knowledge goes performance shouldnt be that much of a hit... there might be a 0.2C difference. Copper just oxidizes a bit more faster than nickel, which does not hurt performance... just doesn't look as good the nickel but on the other hand nickel does tarnish but it takes longer and i think the tarnish can be cleaned off (ive not done till now) with a weak acid or a tarnish remover cloth for either block from what ive read bro.

Cheers.

Do you guys have any 140mm fan suggestions some have said NB PK-3 but they don't seem to rated that high in static pressure.
