So places on our big blue marble Swiftech is not available .. while EK is.

Very true.

yup, the swiftech pump is my pump of choice. much easier to get quiet than a D5. DDC pumps FTW!!! Quick disconnects are helpful, but not too pretty. I much prefer using 1/2inch barbs with a 7/16ths hose. No hose clamp necessary. Even easier if you use the "stubby" barbs.

Wow guys thanks for all the information and trying to help me out.  That swiftech pump does look pretty good.  So i would use the MCR140 just for a gpu?  since it only has 1 140 rad.  And another AIO like the 220 for cpu?

EK Predator AIOs pump flows about 0.6GPM at full speed. This means the Swiftech pump and easily handle GPU and CPU blocks as well as more radiator with no problems.

It will be even more in just the MCR140QP, smaller rad compared to the MCR360QP and no restrictive CPU block.

You simply add another rad and CPU block if you want to add the CPU to the loop.

Ok cool, thanks, now i got another option to go that wont cost me 500-600 dollars.

 

Been using an h100i for cpu since the thing came out and its been going 24/7.  Surprised it still works.   And i been saving for a few months for when the 1080TI comes out.  Hoping by the time i does release i can afford it + new watercooling for cpu + gpu. 

 

The swift tech mcr140 + a rad + a cpu block+ a gpu block+ tubing + fittings +coolant, you think that will cost more then the 350 dollar setup that includes cpu +gpu cooling with a predator 360 + ek gpu block?

 

Sorry for asking so many questions, im just not that great on water cooling parts.

The Swiftech pump is much better than the Predator pump, so will give you much better flow and cooling, espcially if you add CPU block and another radiator to the loop.

I will admit to being a fan of the alphacool GPX having used one in my build, but their upcoming GPU all in one the Eiswolf does look like a great option for water cooling a GPU. It's expandable with 'proper' water cooling parts. Pump should be similar to the DC-LT I'm using which is doing fine in my loop.

Losing VRM and VRAM cooling, and the look of a block made specifically for you card to save ~$10 doesn't sound like a very prudent idea. Nor does going to one size fits none solution with a pump with about half the flow and head pressure of the Swiftech. Sorry these "I wanna water cool but I really don't" solutions really don't make any sense anymore. The GPX is a huge step up from those ghetto rig CLC adapters from Corsair and NZXT, but the pricing is way too close to a full cover custom block to make it a worthwhile choice.
