I need help with my first custom water cooling build

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hi ,,
I'm building my new system and here is my parts I got so far :
case : corsair obsidian 900d
motherboard : msi x99a godlike gaming carbon
processor : core i7 6950x
ram : 4 x 8 32gb corsair dominator platinum chrome special edition
graphic cards : 2x gtx 1080 ti
system ssd : 2tb Samsung nvme m2 pci e gen 3 x4 960 pro
psu : evga supernova 1600 t2 power supply
and I want to do a custom water cooling for only cpu as I'm aiming to overclock it as much as possible !! yea I know it's already an overkill cpu but I cant live without overclocking everything aaevil.gif
so I have looked around and choose the following parts :
cpu block : EK-Supremacy EVO - Full Nickel (Original CSQ) and Thermal Grizzly Hydronaut (1.5mL / 3,9g)
reservoir : EK-RES X3 250 and 3 x EK-PLUG G1/4 Plexi (LED 5mm) plus 2 x LED 5mm Twin Red for red lighting the reservoir
pump : EK-XTOP Revo D5 PWM - (incl. sleeved pump) and EK-UNI Pump Bracket (120mm FAN) Vertical stand
radiator : EK-CoolStream XE 480 (Quad)
static pressure radiator fans : 4 x EK-Furious Vardar FF5-120 (3000rpm) and EK-Cable Splitter 4-Fan PWM Extended to connect them
coolant : one EK-CryoFuel Blood Red Premix 900 mL and Filling Bottle (1000mL)
tubing : EK-Tube ZMT Matte Black 19,4/12,5mm (3m RETAIL)
Fittings : 8 x EK-ACF Fitting 13/19mm - Red
EK-ATX Bridging Plug (24 pin) for testing
so my questions are :
1- did I miss anything ? cuz I'm going to shipping them far to my country and I dont want to miss anything to order and waiting again ?
2- is everything compatible with each others I mean size tall width or whatever ? and7 do I need any additional Fittings I mean the angels ones 90 45 etc ?
3- is one coolant 900ml premix bottle gonna be enough for the whole thing or should I order more ?
4- I saw some builds go with more than one radiator ,, should I ?
I'm going with soft tubing cuz I cant do hard ones looking hard for me to deal with also I'm not going to water cooling my gpu cuz they can be changed anytime and the blocks differ so ..
any tips are very welcome
sorry for my bad english ph34r2.gif

Looks good to me! You'll probably be purchasing an odd and an end anyways as the build progresses. Just the nature of the beast.

thanks but the thing is I don't want to miss anything as there are no local retailers selling such things at my country guiltysmiley.gif

The thing is when you go to install your water loop, you may realize that your fittings may not work at those angles, you may need more fittings, etc...

My suggestion is if you have the case, try to draw out best loop options and when you choose one, make sure the fitting correspond to what you want.

Yeah, I would recommend you getting a few extra 45 degree fittings and 90 degree fittings, because you may find that you can't quite bend the tube where you need it to go.

Also, you may want to look at setting up a drain port. You'll need a ball valve, and probably a "T" fitting to set up your drain.

Definity draw out your loop, even if it is by hand and this will help out a lot as you figure out if you have all of the pieces.
