First Watercooling Setup

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok so I have never setup a watercooling system ever, but I have done my homework on parts and basic rules about watercooling. Below is a basic setup for cooling the CPU, GPU maybe in the future but for now I want to keep it simple. My case is an Antec 900.

Coolant
Feser One - UV BLACK Illusion - F1 - Coolant

Tubing
7/16 tubing on a 1/2 barb for better seal (that is what I heard at least).

Waterblock
Swiftech Apogeeâ„¢ GT water-block

Pump
Swiftech MCP655â„¢ pump

Reservoir
Danger Den Single 5 1/4" Bay Reservoir (case has a ton of drive bays, figure would be an efficient item)

Radiator
Now Rads I am stuck on. I have heard great things about swiftech rads, but my issue is the rad will be mounted on the outside of the case, and a 2X120 rad may cover my PCI slots. Will a single 120 rad cool enough for the CPU and GPU? Is there a highend single rad on the market?

I will provide links to the products should anyone have a problem. Any suggestions about the setup would be great. Thanks in advance.

i dont even put my GPU in my CPU loop with a 360 rad so no a 120 wont work well at all with both. i would say at least a top notch 240 or any 360
