Thermaltake P5 - NEED Beautiful Water Cooling

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I have decided which parts I will buy for my next rig, but I need help with choosing the parts for water cooling.
It is my first time in water cooling.

The setup I will build:
  • CASE: Thermaltake Core P5
  • MOBO: ROG MAXIMUS VIII FORMULA
  • CPU: i7 6700K
  • GPU: MSI GTX 1080 Founder's Edition
  • RAM: G.Skill RipJaws 5 Blck Series 64 GB (4x 16 GB) DDR4 3200 MHz CL16
  • SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB
  • HDD: Seagate 4 TB SSHD - SATA 6Gb/s 3.5"
  • PSU: EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G2


Water Cooling system:
  • Radiator: As tall as possible, I think it is 480, for 4 fans
  • Fans: 4 fans, lightened the same color as the water
  • Tubing: Hard transparent tubes
  • Reservoir: Tall reservoir to fit the space, somewhat like half the size of the radiator
  • MOBO: Need water block
  • CPU: Need water block
  • GPU: Need water block, I don't know how I should position the 1080
  • RAM: Need water block, all the 4 slots are next to each others
  • SSD: Need water block
  • SSHD: I don't know, isn't it supposed to be hidden behind the case ?
  • Color: Turquoise, maybe if possible add in some cool effects in it, i saw bubbles in the reservoir, or multiple colors, I have no idea, just random guess, only turquoise is all fine
  • Wires: Custom

I think I will go with ekwb website to purchase everything I need, except the custom wires.

I really need your help
Thank you!

Yes the radiator size should be 480mm, or 420mm if you want to use larger fans
Your motherboard already has a waterblock on it, no need to get a better one as it's made by EK
If you want to go with EK, Supremacy EVO for the CPU and whatever EK has for your 1080. EK's RAM block is called Monarch
You don't need a block for the SSD, and it would be a terrible hassle to set one up]

Use the built in block on your mother board for the voltage regulators. Just get a CPU block and GPU block. Ram and SSDs do not get hot. Use bitspower fittings with 12 mm OD tubing. There are some fans out there that have RGB LEDs in them-pick one of them.

Ok I would like to list every single component I need to buy, I don't want to find myself with a missing fitting or tube.
But it's really hard for a novice with all the specifications, I can't be sure what component fits what other component.
It's not user friendly at all...

I will update this list as I have more info.
Thank you!

Waterblock:

Reservoir: EK-RES X3 250 or EK-RES X3 250 Lite ?

Pump: I'm lost with all the names...

Radiator: EK-CoolStream SE 480 or XE 480 or PE 480 ?

Fans: What size I need to have 4 fans in the 480 rad ?

Fittings: Here I'm completely lost of how many I have to buy with all the materials I am ordering and what sizes

Tubes: Hard tubing I guess, but same as with the fittings...

EK reservoirs are not particularly impressive. You can be adventurous and have PPC put together a Monsson MMRS for you (or you could put it together yourself) - http://www.performance-pcs.com/monsoon-modular-reservoir-system-parts. Or you could go simpler with an all glass XSPC Photon 270.

That RAM block is made specifically for Dominator RAM, it won't work on your G Skill. No clue why you are putting a block on your RAM to begin with. It does nothing but add restriction to the loop for no real end result.

Beauty is subjective, but good luck beating this:

I really think you need to do a lot more research on water cooling and understand the basics before you dive down the path. You can't expect to just have someone hand you a shopping list when you don't even know what size fans go on a radiator. Please don't take this as rude but as highly recommended. Get more knowledge then ask questions.
