Ideal WC Setup (Lian-Li PC60 case) - Page 5

post #41 of 65
Thread Starter 
Alright, time to bring up a new subject. I've been doing some research on my own, and then recalled that Thermalright has entered the water block scene a while back, and it's been mysteriously quiet about their block. According to this review, while it is a very restrictive block, it is ideal for CPU only high end loops. Seems to me thats what I've been planning to build here, so is there any other reasons I should avoid Thermalright's block? I've already enjoyed a few of their air cooling solutions, and I figure their attention to detail would keep them competitive in the water cooling segment as well. Heck, if the budget allows, I may even pick up a FuZion and a XWB-1 and do a mini comparison for you guys (if it hasn't been done already). And if it has been done already, link me to it so I can read up!

i'd get the fuzion for expandability of your loop. it looks a lot better too, when mounted.

I'd also stick with what works and get the fuzion. I'd wait and see what thermalright has in store for version 2.

Ok, I'm not ready to order yet, but I think I have finalized the setup for when I do get the funds available. I have one question though, if I have the radiator sitting above the case, what sort of spacing should I leave between the underside of the rad and the top side of the case? I realize a shroud places ~1.5" between the fans and radiator, but I'm not sure about the other side, since I'll be running in a pull configuration. I'll be ordering the following things (as a double check, unless you see something horribly wrong with my selection):

From Petra's:
- Laing DDC w/ Petra'sTech DDCT-01s Top Combo (1/2" D-Tek High Flow barbs)
- Swiftech MCRES-MICRO Hi-Flo Reservoir
- Petra'sTech "PT_Nuke" Concentrated Biocide (10mL)
- D-TEK FuZion Universal CPU Waterblock - 1/2"
- Stainless Steel Worm-Drive Hose Clamp (Wide Band w/Liner)
- 7/16" ID (5/8" OD) Masterkleer General Purpose Clear PVC Tubing

From Danger Den:
- Black Ice XtremeII Radiator

From Performance-PCs:
- Panaflo M1 Medium Volume 120mm Fan Sleeved (x2)

Total Price (Shipped): $305.41

I'm not sure yet. I was going to save some money and go with a mix of Pentosin G11, PT Nuke and distilled water. I don't see myself being able to justify a $30 bottle of FluidXP...
