Help please for watercooling loop parts and direction

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey guys so ive been looking at vids / photo's and online about a custom loop and im finding it hard to grasp how much radiator coverage i need for my rig that i will be making and also finding it hard what parts (tubing/fittings/blocks) to purchase hopefully someone here would be able to help point me in the correct direction as im literally new to this as it will be my first time making a custom loop

this is mine and my misses current gaming / work (3d design/ graphics and art) http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/7KjdK8

and this is the rig im getting parts are ordered and on the way http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/QXBjt6

i was hoping to get blocks for cpu mobo and gpu's

hope someone could help me with which parts to purchase and the direction i would be grateful

kind regards RxL

For the build with one graphics card you will probably want at least a 480 rad, assuming you will be overclocking with the 4790k and possibly the gpu. The other one you will probably want a 480 and then at least another 240 if you will be overclocking that one.
Here's a link to the motherboard blocks that should fit those boards.
It looks like the graphics cards are reference design so you should be good to use any of these.
Here are the cpu blocks that should fit those sockets, just make sure you get one for each socket type.

When figuring in a water loop there is much more to just radiator coverage , the 900D will allow overkill cooling , if your after near silent then more radiators the better because can run fans at a MUCH slower speed and maintain good temperatures but will hit the pocket book harder , on the other hand if run high performance fans and good radiators and don't mind hearing the fans then can go much less on the radiators. you can run the 4790k and single 980ti on a 360 and keep temperatures down. What kind of overclocking are you looking at doing? Also soft vs rigid tubing, budget also because water cooling can get expensive fast and a lot of variables come into play when mapping and setting up a parts list for a build

Thanks for the information and links to the blocks i should look at to purchase also i should of stated that its only the 5930k + both 980 Ti that will be getting water cooled smile.gif

as stated above sorry i missed out information but it will only be the 5930k and 980ti sli being watercooled and im hoping to overclock both cards as high as they can go with water and the 5930k im hoping for around 4.5 ghz and budget will be for soft tubing as i do not wish to go with rigid tubing as i will be purchasing colored tubing

also noise wont be an issue i will be using corsair fans with red rings (because i already have them)

sorry for missing out information but i will take on board what you both have gave me
