Need Help With Watercooling parts!

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
I am planning to build my first PC in July once the CPU price drops have occured and I really want to use watercooling so I can overclock my CPU and RAM to extreme lengths.

I have a reasonable knowledge of Watercooling thanks to reading up on many helpful guides (Especially on here) but I honestly have no idea what parts to get so I need major help for this!

I am planning to use;
X1950XT Pro - Graphics Card
E6750 Core 2 Duo - Processor
GIGABYTE GA-P35C-DS3R - Motherboard
Corsair 620WT HX Series - PSU
Thermaltake Kandalf - Massive Case

I only want watercooling for the CPU as I doubt my Graphics card will overheat as I will not overclock it. Also my budget is at most £200 including postage and I am obviously from the UK. Any help here would be greatly appreciated as I have little to no knowledge of good watercooling parts.

Heey there, for buyin ur WC kit in the UK I would definately recommend this site:
http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/catalog/
Service is excellent and lowest prices ive found (give/take a couple of items), plus next day delivery!!

C2D CPU - you need a waterblock with a big surface area i.e. D-Tek Fuzion Block

Rad - If your wanting to overclock alot and you've got room in ur case you could get a 120*3 rad, some might say overkill but if you've got the space then I dont see why not get it.http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/cata...roducts_id=376

Pump - Laing DDC 12W will do the job nicely:

Res/T-Line -- Its up to you which you go for, theres plenty to choose from.
A T-Line takes up less space but doesnt have the asthetics of a reservoir.

If you heavily overclockin id think abt watercoolin your northbridge as that could get crazy hot (depends on ur mobo)

D-Tek: £ 39.05
Black Ice GT Stealth III £37.99
12V Laing DDC-1T Pro w/OCLabs Plexy Pump Top £49.99
Reservoir: £10-£30
Tubing, clips etc: £20 tops!

Well under £200 plus free delivery over £150
Hope that helps!

Thanks for the quick reply! I appreciate it. By the way when you say heavily overclocking the CPU at what speed do you mean? 4Ghz? 4.5Ghz?
Also sorry to sound like a complete idiot for overclocking (Which I kinda am ) But could you explain what a northbridge is?

the northbridge is a chipset on the motherboard that passes information from the cpu to the ram and out to the rest of the system. at most you will get about 3.8 out of a c2d. probably more like 3.6. got any other questions?

Ive edited my original post with more info os u might wanna re-read.

Northbridge:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northbridge_(computing)

If your OC'ing that CPU to those speeds then I would image ur northbridge is gonna get toasty! You could put a N/B block in that loop no problem anyway.

Thanks, I will probably do that if it isn't too costly as I want it to be less than £200 but ideally around £160.

So what can anyone recommend then for a good resovoir?

Well to be honest I do not know many differences between each type of reservoir and I would just like whatever is the best and easiest to put on a PC as a res.

In that case just get a 5.25" Bay reservoir then. Just fits into ur drive bays.
