What are good individual components for a build

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I Have built the rig outlined below. I already have the CPU on a Reserator 1v2 Water cooler.

I am considering cooling all heat-generating components in my system. That I am aware of, that would be the 2 GPU's and their chipsets, the Northbridge and Southbridge and the MOFSET. I will leave the RAM air-cooled and I only have one Hard Drive that is behind a fan.

I have been reading a lot and there are various opinions on what material to buy where to build your own. I definitely want a quiet, but powerful pump. The Swiftech one looks good, but I am open to suggestion. Then the radiators that I see are Hardware Labs Black ice, but I have no idea of what thickness to take and whether I should have one with it's own reservoir or not.

GPU, chipset and MOFSET water blocks, tubes, connections, measuring equipment, flow indicators, all of these things are all up in the air.

Any advice would be welcome.

Something like this would be good..

CPU Blocks...Custom..Stinger WB...Commercial.. FuZion CPU Block.

I'd use a back plate with either one..Dtek FuZion Intel 775 Pro-Mount set.

And you might like jets to with a Fuzion....D-Tek FuZion Accelerator Nozzle Kit

GPU..Swifty 60 G80 & ATI 2900..Ram Sinks..Enzotech BMR-C1 Forged Copper BGA Ramsinks..

Pump...D-5

Rad...GTX360

Rad Fans...86cfm Pana

Res..DD 5 1/4" Bay Reservoir.Or just use a t-line...

Tubing..7/16x5/8"....1/2x3/4"..

Clamps or zip-ties on the barbs..

Coolant..Pentosin..Biocide...PT Nuke

I'll leave you my cleaning and set-up PDF...Be sure to read all the stickies here to...Take your time deciding on parts and get the best you can for the $$$ you have...I wouldn't bother cooling NB,SB and all that just get some good HSF's for that......

Don't bother watercooling MOSFETs, Northbridge, or the Southbridge. You will gain nothing except hurting your flow.

I was planning to cool my cpu, vga, and nb all on one loop. Bad idea? I'm using the Swiftech H20-220 Ultr+Extreme kit.

That might be a bit much for a 2x120 rad. Just go to www.petrastechshop.com and pick out your components.

What about putting the cpu on it's own loop with a 220 and then put the vga and nb on a loop with a 220? Overkill?

It would work.... but you'll be spending around $120 more than needed.

I would get the FuZionGPU, a video card block, a DDC pump, 360 Black Ice GTX rad, and 3 fans.

Ok, sounds like sound advice. One other thing I can't decide on is either a T-Line or Res. My case is an Antec P182, can you recommend a setup based on my case. It seems like a good case for water cooling.

I like a bay res, I can throw a thick book under the front of the case so it keeps water over the barbs in the back and be bleed in about 5 minutes.DD 5 1/4" Bay Reservoir...A t-line is fine to it just takes a lot longer to bleed, but it takes up less room to and might not be as prone to leakage...

Petra's is a good shop and so are these, I've bought WC'ing gear from all of them,and they all have great service, just look around and get the best prices you can on your components..If I had a favorite. which I don't it would have to be Danger Den....Danger Den

...Sidewinders
