Building a dedicated GPU loop, almost ready to pull the trigger

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I've been in the process of overclocking my evga GTX 780 Classy, and everyon said I should post in this thread with the rest of the Watercooling guys. This is my first build, and looking to run a GPU only loop, as I'm happy with my Noctua performance on the CPU, I'm mainly looking for simple, effective and really how far I can take this single card before I Decide to sli it. Everything would be fitted in a In Win GR ONE case. I found everything on Frozencou.com.

Here's a list of the watercooling I pieced together, wanted to make sure I have everything before I pull the trigger:

Swiftech MCR220 Drive Rev 3 integrated pump reservoir radiator
EK-FC780 Classy see through Nickel block
3/8 x 5/8 tubing with 4 compression clamps
Alphacool Double sided Thermal Adhesive Pad9 for vrm and memory) just in case
EK premium liquid Coolant uv lime
Siftech stainless steel worm drive clamp 5/8 -3/4 4 pack, for tubing I presume
Draemn offered me his backplate smile.gif

Any thoughts?

Looks good, but where are your fittings, and why do you have two sets of clamps?

Also, seriously consider a drain valve and/or quick disconnects. You will hate yourself when it comes time to drain the loop or remove the GPU if you don't plan this part out ahead of time. A fill line or a dedicated reservoir (or both) also make things easier to work with.

Thanks for the reply. I ordered the setup and hopefully should be here later this week. I got the fittings with the compression clamps, so I have no idea why I bought another set of clamps, maybe just in case? Also I didn't realize that the combo reservoir had in parenthesis no Pump, so luckily I called before it was shipped to include that,l phew! lol
