Ordering first WC setup, tell me what you think

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

So, how's it look?
EDIT: I'm not sure on what coolant to use, so I'm open to suggestions.
Also, I'm thinking of putting my gpu into the loop later when the 9800gtx comes out, so perhaps I may need a bigger rad?

That setup you've got there looks very nice.

As for coolant, it really depends. Distilled water performs really well, and if you add some biocide, you don't have to worry about organic growth. I use a 95% distilled water + 5% antifreeze + blue food coloring mix. But if you're a pansy, and worried about distilled water eating at your blocks, you can get some fluidXP, but i think it's adding needless expense.

Looks good to me. You bought a T and a res, so I assume you want the T for a drain port. What are you going to plug it with? You might want one of these: http://www.jab-tech.com/Dangerden-Fi...n-pr-3489.html

I would get three of these http://www.jab-tech.com/120mm-Anti-V...e-pr-3534.html to get a good seal between the fans and the rad.

For coolant, I'd go with either Swiftech HydrX; pentosin plus PT Nuke; or Primochill Liquid Utopia. Each is mixed with distilled water.

Seems like your all set apart from coolant

Distilled water + G11 + PT_Nuke (another good coolant solution)

distilled water + 2 drops of dish soap = teh win

biocide = sterling silver ring or any piece of silver in the res = teh win

there are cheaper alternatives to that pump such as =
hydor seltz (i use this one)
via aqua

only downside is that you cant change the flow on those

what is that wrist strap doing? dont be lame. just get some 4 gauge solid copper wire and ram it in your jugular and ground that sucker by firmly inserting it into a wall socket. none of that pansy anti - static wristband crap.

I have some silver dollars I throw in my res, works great...That doesn't look bad, why the Apogee instead of a Fuzion? They are probably with-in a C or two of each other anyway...

I'd look at a back-plate for it, might make it easier ot get a good mount....Dtek FuZion Intel 775 Pro-Mount set

I would go for this or Fesser One for premade fluid. There is a post under hardware news that shows this is the best premade fluid

Instead of 1/2ID tubing, should I go 7/16ID and mix the tygon with masterkleer to save money?
EDIT: here's an updated cart






I would get the Tline inlets, but they're all outa stock. I'll figure something out for my drain.

I really like 7/16x5/8" Masterkleer tubing on 1/2" barbs, it fits tighter is more compact and will flow about as well as the full 1/2" tubing...I don't really care for Tygon at all, I'd rather use Masterkleer, but if you have some really tight bends you might want to get a few feet of Tygon for them....Masterkleer will bend almost as well as Tygon....
