Alright so I have my build all finished except for the water cooling aspect. I'm getting read to order my water cooling parts and want to run it by you guys, just to see if any red flags show up again, as well as answering a few questions. Remember this is all in my Enthoo Primo case (which is a beast by the way
Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 360mm Radiator
Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 480mm Radiator
360 for the top in pull. 480 in the bottom in push/pull. Only thing is I can't find UT60 480's anywhere in stock, but there are UT45's of the same brand in stock. Would a 45mm thick rad have a drastic performance decrease compared to the 60mm version. I guess I can still always go with the 480mm Monsta rad in the bottom... I dunno
Corsair Air Series SP120 High Performance Edition High Static Pressure 120mm PWM Fan x11
Lamptron CW611 Fan Controller
Standard fans. Not sure if this fan is 3 pin or 4 pin. The fan controller I have picked out has 3 pin on it's channels, but to my knowledge you can plug a 4 pin fan into a 3 pin connector, and you just lose some of the functionality of that fan, which shouldn't matter in this case since they are going to be run off of the fan controller correct? In that case I need 5-6 3 pin splitter cables so I can run all my 11 fans off of the fan controller. I haven't found any of those yet.
Alphacool NexXxos XP³ Light CPU Liquid Cooling Block - Black Chrome Edition
EK Geforce GTX 980 VGA Liquid Cooling Block - Acetal x2
EK GeForce 980 GTX VGA Liquid Cooling RAM Backplate - Black x2 (maybe??)
Is the RAM Backplate really worth it? I think it is just there for looks, which I'm all for I guess, but if you won't be able to see them that much then why should I bother? Any suggestions for the backplates?
Swiftech MCP655 Variable Speed 12v Water Pump w/ G1/4 Thread Ports
Heard this was a dope pump. If any one has other suggestions I'm still all ears at this point.
FrozenQ LF Reaction 160mm Cylinder Reservoir - Black Cap - Blue Helix
I like the look of this res. But if anyone has had bad experiences with this brand, or can recommend better ones, again I'm all ears.
Tubing and Fittings:
PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing 3/8"ID x 1/2" OD - 10ft
3/8 x 1/2 Compression Fittings x14
45 Deg 3/8 x 1/2 Compression Fittings x4
90 Deg 3/8 x 1/2 Compression Fittings x4
I heard PrimoChill was the go to brand for quality tubing. Decided to go with 3/8 x 1/2 since size doesn't matter, I guess it is just for aesthetics. Threw in a few 45 and 90 degree angle fittings since I'm sure they will come in handy with looks.
That's it in a nutshell. Again I'm open to all advice and responses from you guys. Any help in picking out better parts (especially if they look better) is welcome. Thanks again everyone.
