Reworking my watercooling setup.

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Whelp my current setup is really starting to suck. 3.45GHz at 1.425vcore and I'm getting 100% temps right at the 60c mark.

Think I'm going to pick up the following:

HW Labs Black Ice GTX240 - Black

Petra's Tech DDCT-01s Custom Delrin DDC Pump Top for MCP350/355

Masterkleer Tubing 7/16" ID

A Rad-Box for external installation.

I just need some suggestions on some fans for the radiator.

I'm currently running a Swiftech Premium 120 Kit with an Apogee GT.
I'm going to add the Swiftech NB Block I have back in as soon as I get a low profile SB heatsink.
I'll be changing all the fittings to 1/2".

Here is my current setup. Ty in advance.

i wouldn't run your tubing under your ram cooler that just my opinion.
i would say 1/2 id over 7/16 sense 1/2inch is bigger

^^ but 1/2" tubing doesnt have better flow than 7/16" and 7/16" tubing is alot easier to route...

7/16 is a much tighter fitting, which will minimise the chance of a leak.

Right I am just out of tubing so it's under the cooler right now. It's not staying this way of course.

I'm just wanted some good recommendations on fans for that setup.

Is that radiator great or overkill?

Everything else look good? I want a good radiator but I wanna make sure that one is worth 100 bucks.

Also I think I wanna order from this site and I dunno which 7/16" ID tubing I should get, any suggestions?

I would just get the GTS rad its about half as much but they are out of stock there....So its up to you I bought the 480GTX and I really like it on my Pelt loop works great I have 4 108cfm Sunon and 4 115cfm Panaflo fans on it...

If you don't mind using 100+ cfm fans the BIX is a great rad and a lot cheaper..

Cheap is not my main focus. After this purchase I am trying to move to quad so I need something with some great cooling.
