expert water coolers over here :)

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
im modding an old beige pc case, standard tower size (four 5.25" bays)to fit a new water cooling system into. i have removed all the 3.5" bays to make room.

My system is in my sig, this is the setup i will be water cooling.im just looking to watercool the cpu at the moment, but i will probably do the nb at a later date. i need help picking the parts as i dont have a great knowledge of whats good and whats not in this area.what i have chosen so far is a swiftech storm or apogee water block, Opinions on either of these are welcome. i also want a dual fan raidiator, and from what i have read about the storm waterblock, a high flow pump to get the best cooling out of it. thanks a lot for any suggestions or tips guys ps. i also come from uk

If you're looking for the best retail WB @ a reasonable price go with the D-Tek Fuzion .

Embra or Glesca?

The D-Tek performs better out-of-the-box then the Apogee/Storm do in most systems.........depending on overall components. It's within 1-2ºC of my all metal Stingers on Idle, but considerably higher on full Load.

Alphacool Laing DDC-Pump 12V Ultra/Laing D5-Vario (1/2") Here

The ThermoChill PA120.2 or PA120.3(if there's room in your case) Here

All @ the same UK source.

its also the same WB dryad recommended.... ¬_¬

in any case you want your loop to look like this:


Pump->Radiator->CPU->reservoir-|

Thermochill's are nice. Slightly more spendy than some rads, but well worth it.

As far as a pump, get a D5 Laing. Popular, reliable and a great performer.

EDIT: I concur w/ the people recommending a FuZion waterblock.

You can hang the rad off the back of the case with one of These .

And as long as the pump is below the res, you're good to go with the loop order that ChielScape posted.
