Bout time I went watercooling!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Well, bout time, and its just been kick started.

Getting hold of this pump:

SwiftTech MCP600

for $20 shipped

Its got 1/2" barbs, so I'm going to go with that. From reading up on the pump I've read it works better with smaller tubes as it likes high pressure systems but that doesn't concern me.

Anyway, while I've never talked/really thought seriously about watercooling, I have picked up some stuff

At the front of my new modded case will be 2 x 120mm fans, with plenty of room above and below, and as the hard drive cages have been moved plenty of room behind too

So I'm going to go for a 120.2 to cool my CPU and graphics card.

List of parts I'll need (I believe) with what I'm thinking about:

CPU Block: Apogee GT
GPU Block (7950GT): to be added later
120.2 Rad: XSPC RS240
Fill-port: Danger Den Red Fillport
Tubing: 1/2" Clear Tubclair AL
Water dye and anti-algae, etc: 10mm PT Nuke and UV Red Feser Dye
PFTE Tape:PFTE Tape

I'm looking to keep this pretty cheap, while still getting reasonable performance

I'm not sure how much tubing I'll need, or if my parts are alright (thanks NuclearCrap for helping).

Any suggestions appreciated

I'd go for the Fuzion CPU block or one of fstfrddy's new V-8's....And the Fil-Port' that are colored are aluminum...I know the coolant wont be on it all the time but I'm just freaky I'd use the brass one or the delerin so there would be no chance of corrosion....I'd get al least 12' of tubing in case you make a bad cut....

Cheers mate.

I've looked into the V8s, and while they aren't that much more expensive I doubt the pump will be able to cope with single input double output
