Assistance on X99 i7-5960X first time loop

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hey helpful people!
I'm pretty sure this is the right place for something like this so I shall commence forth with the post.

Here's the specs-

Processor- Intel i7-5960X Processor (LGA-2011v3) 3.0Ghz

MOBO- MSI X99 Krait Edition (LGA-2011v3)

Case- Corsair Obsidian Series 900D Black Aluminum ATX Super Tower Computer Case

CPU Block- EK-Supremacy EVO Elite Edition - Intel 2011-3

Fittings- Monsoon Chain Gun Hardline Compression Fittings 1/2 x 5/8 (Green)

Tubing- Monsoon Hardline Tube 1/2 x 5/8 - UV Green

HDD- WD BLACK SERIES 4TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5""
x2

SSD- Crucial BX100 2.5"" 1TB SATA 6Gbps (SATA III) Micron 16nm MLC NAND

Fans- Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120mm Case Fan (1850 RPM, 28 dBA) x20 (Push/Pull on all Rads)

Rads- Well theyre all Black Ice SR1 so I'll just list quantity and size. 2x 480mm, 1x 360mm, 1x 240mm, 1x 120mm

Oh and almost forgot
Memory (RAM)- Team Elite 8GB (1 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory x4

Still looking into Resevoirs because honestly I have no idea where or how to mount it, and I am thinking of giving up and getting a 5.25" bay or dual bay one. So yea whats the point of all this jabber? I wanted to check if there was any errors in my list, things that aren't compatible for example. And which pump you guys recomend. And how to mount it/them. Thanks for everything and I will be happy to answer any questions about anything I accidently left out.
New to this watercooling stuff.
Again, sorry if this is in the wrong place.
Edit: Forgot this was a actual thing. Feeling stupud for typing up all my parts. PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Jh2gxr

Forget those. They are totally unnecessary and a waste of money that will only reduce the amount of cooling to the components that really need cooling.

The RAM is clocked at 2400, I thought watercooling would make it able to hit 2666.. Think I should just leave it at 2400 or will watercooling get it there? Or just invest in some 2666 memory with heat spreaders..

Memory doesn't overheat.
In my experience, removing the heat spreaders and putting a fan on it makes it run cooler.

I'm a big fan of Team Group memory.
If you're going to try overclocking, get the Vulcan series from Team.
I have 4 x 4 gigs of Vulcan 1600 that will do 2000 mhz easily.

Just checed PCPart Picker... Dosent look like Team makes any Vulcan in DDR4 thats above 4GB and I really wanted to get as many GB on that board that fits in my budget.. 8x 8GB.. Anyone else you recomend for RAM? And what did you mean by fans? I found some by corsair but it looks like they only work with their Dominator series.

^^^ All of this. RAM doesn't overheat - the "heat sinks" you see on most DIMMS are purely for show, and if anything may actually increase the heat of individual RAM ICs due to the poorly-performing thermal pads most manufacturers use. Some moderate active air flow is all that's needed to keep it close to in-case ambient temp.

HDD's actually last longer if they're able to operate at their design temperature of 37-42C. There was a comprehensive study done by BackBlaze and another one by Google that indicated that HDD temperatures that were "too cool" were actually detrimental to long life. I don't quite understand why, but statistics are available on the web.

SSD cooling plate? LOL. Most SSDs use 3-4W during writes, and <1.5W during read and <0.05W at idle. You don't need cooling on an SSD. Period.

Koolance is out there to make money, and they'll sell frozen lemonade to lemon farmers if they could.

Have you ever built a computer?
Have you done custom WCing?
What software are you going to run?

I ask because you're kind of on the red side of overkill here.

Yea. I did a couple builds on LGA 775 (Core 2 Duo time) for some friends. And a AMD Athlon build I used for a while back in 99. Most recent was my 4790k build with a GX 770.
That one had a sorta custom loop, one of those pre-packaged XSPC things for only the processor, nothing special. I read on some forms that hard drives had better speeds with watercooling but that was probably some Koolance or Bitspower guy trying to make money smile.gif

I do graphics animation and me and some friends wanted to get into gaming so why not at 4k? Running Windows 7 Ultimate for now until 10 if it's good enough. Most of my applications I use are great on lots of cores so 8 is great. Forgot to mention the GPUs, I'm going to probably finish this rig before the 980tis come out so I was just going to use that old 770 for a bit. Thanks. Never really watercooled back then. What pumps do you recommend? Preferably mounting for a 120mm fan. Pushing through all the RADs I mentioned so a bit of a way. Probably 2 or 3 pumps is nessessary? I might remove the 120mm Rad because the dual 480s, the 360, and the 240 should be enough. I am planning on getting 4 GPUs.

There are no graphics programs that will use 8 gigs of memory, much less 32 gigs. Most any game will max out at 4 gigs.

RAM is for the personal server I run for me and some others. I was talking about cores for the graphics program, why I was going from 4790k to 5960X, also the 4790k is going to my friend for gaming.
