Put a list together and post it here, we would be happy to check it for you before you place your order! thumb.gif

Alright it is a *bit* more expensive. I guess tell me where I can save in a sense.

EK-Supremacy EVO - Nickel CPU Block

EK-FC980 GTX WF3 - Nickel GPU Block

EK-RES X3 400 Resevoir

EK-XTOP Revo D5 PWM - Plexi Pump

EK-CoolStream XE 480 (Quad)

Drain Valve

Plug for Valve

T Splitter For Valve

EK-ACF Fitting 10/13mm - Black - 15 of these. I think this is enough/accurate.

White Pastel Coolant

5m Tubing of Mayhem Ultra Clear

Mayhem Ultra Pure H20 - Should I just use distilled?

That looks correct. As for the water, I would drop that and use just distilled. The pastel has all the additives in it you already need.

Watercooling is definitely pricey to start with but the beauty of going the custom route right away is that most of those parts can be reused so upgrading is easy on a 1 by 1 basis. thumb.gif

After the release of the new nvidia pascal cards, I have decided to commence an entire new system build.

For the first time ever, i will be attempting an open loop watercooled system with the core p5 case.

I'm just about ready to start making some purchases on the watercooling components after paying off all the new hardrware. I would really appreciate some help.

My first question;

What fittings are being used in this build? i really like their look. Are they the bitspower compression fittings? Or thermaltake pacific fittings? (I'm going to guess they are thermaltake)
Also, what res is being used? Brand/size




I'm looking at purchasing the following res;



It is the Thermaltake Pacific T22 - 220mm Tube Reservoir. Can anyone recommend a pump to go with this reservoir? Originally, i was looking at purchasing a res/pump combo but I am severely limited in my options (live in Australia. Limited stock etc).
Honestly, I do not know what I'm looking for with a pump? I can get the Thermaltake Pacific PT20 pump/res combo but the res is only 110mm. Am I able to purchase a pump seperately that will fit nicely like the following? Would a 110mm res be okay to run a 480mm rad cooling cpu, sli gpu's and dual sticks of ram? Or am I right in shooting for something larger? Does res size even affect performance? Total noob here with watercooling lol.


I have so many more questions but I can't think right now. lol

Everything on that build is Thermaltake.

As for the pump, I would recommend a d5. I really like the EK one with plexi top:

Awesome thanks.
With the Ek pump which you linked to me, what orientation would that mount? Exactly the same way as pictured, and then have a feed from the top inlet into a res? If I do go ahead with this pump, I've been looking at getting the following res.. https://www.ple.com.au/Products/617934/Thermaltake-Pacific-T22---220mm-Tube-Reservoir

Would this length res, on top of the pump, fit within the space we are given with this case?

Hi guys,

Gonna order my P5 soon. Have been spending lots of time reading the forum from page 1.
I'm EXTREMELY new to custom loops. Need some advice. I would be going all Hard tubing and bending.
So my build includes:
Mobo: Asus X99 Deluxe II
Chipset: Intel Core i7 5930K
GPU: Asus GTX1080 Strix
Ram: CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 4x8GB
SSD & HHD: SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB
SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 1TB
TOSHIBA X300 5TB
PSU: CORSAIR RMx1000W
Case: Thermaltake Core P5 (will most likely repaint it white)

That aside, for the custom loop, I'm looking at

- EK-FB ASUS X99 Monoblock - Nickel
- EK-FC1080 GTX Strix (When its out, according to EK, its Late June 2016)
- EK-CoolStream XE 480 (Quad)
- EK-HD PETG Tube 10/12mm 500mm (2pcs) x3 (might have spare for mistakes)
- EK-HDC Fitting 12mm G1/4 - Nickel x12 (not sure if its sufficient)
- EK-AF Ball Valve (10mm) G1/4 - Nickel
- EK-CSQ Plug G1/4 (for EK-Badge) - Nickel
- EK-Ekoolant EVO UV BLUE (premix 1L)

Initially, I was planning on all EK. but since the EK-RES X3 250 - White is out of stock, I was thinking of using
- Bitspower Water Tank Z-Multi Compact 250 (Black Acrylic Version) OR Bitspower Water Tank Z-Multi Compact 300 (Black Acrylic Version).

Does anyone know if I could change the TOP of the reservoirs to Z-CAP II With G1/4" x 3 (Clear Acrylic Version)???
And what do you guys recommend for the pump? I had a look at EK-XTOP Revo D5 PWM - Plexi (incl. pump) but I'm not sure it works with one another.
I also had a look at Bitspower D5 MOD Package (Clear Acrylic TOP S + MOD Kit V2 Matt Black).
Which would you guys recommend? and is there any parts that I have missed out?

with ek d5 revo you can fit ~300-360 mm res without sticking it out of the case

What's everyone's thoughts on testing the card on air in my other computer before installing the block, just to make sure everything is normal. Is this normal practice for everyone?


This is a 270mm Res + pump:
