First W/C setup

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to run this list by everyone to see if I made good choices before I order the parts. This will be my first W/C build and I just wanna run it by the experienced who may approve and/or make suggestions.


Fuzion V2 with quad core insert for the Q6600
EK-FC88 times two for the SLI 8800GTs
ViperJohns Northbridge waterblock and heatsinks(and fan) for the 780i
Laing DDC w/ Petra'sTech DDCT-01s Top Combo Pump
Thermochill PA120.3 Radiator
EK-RES250 Rev2 Reservoir
6 Scythe SFF21F Fans


Any recommendations on the fluid and, tubing, and Fittings I may need would be highly appreciated!

Fluid= Feser1 Very safe stuff Almost like water, But non conductive.

I like 7/16s tubing, Nice tight fit.

I would go with MCW60s for the GPUs; make sure to get plenty of ramsinks for the memory modules and the regulators on the cards. 1/2" fittings with 1/2"ID-3/4"OD tubing. Use distilled water mixed with some PT Nuke. I would use a T-line instead of a reservoir, but that's more of a preference and does not affect performance. I would seriously consider a quad radiator instead of a triple one, but the PA is very good; the GTX360 is just as good but a bit cheaper, and seems to do slightly better with medium speed fans.

The liquid will become conductive once it touches your components, unless said components are completely dust free. Plain distilled water mixed with a cheap biocide is better.

Go with distilled water, pt nuke and feser or pentosin G11 if you like blue. For tubing I recommend tygon or masterkleer.

I recommend this heatsink for the south bridge and I'm not sure if you already have them, but these mosfet sinks for the 780i.

Are you serious? Really bad idea man, way too many minerals in tap water. Distilled water all the way.

Well Tap water is probably one of the worst coolants you could use in the case of watercooling your computer.

If bad Tap Water all F1 car will not run...I think Tap water is the best got mineral to cool water cooling pc to.If can run with F1 car how come cannot run with pc water cooling...

A final yet important consideration to make is liquid coolant type. Theoretically, you could fill your water cooling system with anything, but some fluids work much better than others. First of all, do not use tap water. Tap water has minerals, bacteria, and algae in it which will corrode and cloud your water cooling system, possibly causing a catastrophic failure. Another alternative is de-ionized water. De-ionized or non-conductive water may seem desirable initially, because it is a poor electrical conductor, and therefore will not cause much damage if a leak occurs. However, water is an excellent solvent, and so if de-ionized water is put into a water cooling system, it will corrode the water blocks to get its ions back. Therefore, de-ionized water is not something we recommend, either.
A good choice is distilled water, because it is relatively cheap yet pure enough to use in a water cooling system. Distilled water will not deposit harmful minerals in your system, nor will it cause algal blooms because there are no living organisms present. It will not, however, corrode your water blocks because it is not de-ionized. There are various additives which may be added to the coolant in your system. Water wetter is great for increasing the cooling capacity of your system by altering the properties of water and making it even more thermally capacitive. Water wetter will also help reduce corrosion in your water cooling system. Other additives, such as UV-reactive dyes, may be added for aesthetic reasons.
