Plan to start Watercooling, need an advice!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
It's first time thinking of watercooling, becuz of noise and dust..
I was going to buy water-cooling kit, but I think it's better to ask some experts here and get some information what products to get.

I'm going to be use it on Asus Rampage / E8500 / 2 GPUs

I need to know some well-known good performance products on every product to start.

Here's my system right now, currently x38-ds4 and 3870x2 + 3870
I'm plan to buy Rampage tomorrow and replace 3870x2 when 4870 comes out.



Thanks for your time.

Well first before we even get started, there is one thing you should realize. Even with Water-Cooling, you will still need fans (most make noise) and there will still be dust (as you'll still be using fans).

Now that we have that out of the way, there are lots of different options for you but first we would need to know your budget and if you plan on mounting everything internally or externally.

Keep all the bubbles (air) out of the tubes. No joke. That was likely the hardest part of my water cooling experience. The kitchen had like 2 gallons of distilled water all over the place with my computer in the center - crazy stuff.

Anyway, buy metal fasteners for all tube joints - else some may pull off. Water cooling for me was fun and a learning process, necessary? not so much.

You need fans on the radiator (to answer your last question). I have 6x 120mms on a 320mm radiator.

Yes, you will need fans for your radiator, but you can choose to go with low speed fans that are virtually silent. If silence is what you're after, I would suggest a Thermochill PA120.3 Radiator with some low speed Yate Loons.

Here is the PA120.3 http://www.petrastechshop.com/thpara2.html

And here are some food fans to use with it http://www.petrastechshop.com/12yalod1cafa.html.

What kind of GPU's will you be using? 3870x2'?

500? man that's gonna be a nice set up... cooling 2 GPU's and a CPU on the loop is gonna be rough, so I might even recommend 2 radiators. Go with 1/2 in tubing as well; a d5 vario pump. I think that thing could handle all the stuff in the loop... 2x Swiftech MCR-320 "Quiet Power" Series Radiators and 6 yate loon fans + an EK-RES150 Rev.2 Multi-Option Reservoir and 15 ft 1/2 in tubing with sufficient barbs and fittings (wormdrive hose clamps + mounting hardware) + a fuZion v2 water block and whatever blocks on your vid cards you choose would be my set up. all the stuff i mentioned totals to about 340... which gives you 160 bucks to find 2 gpu blocks. Everything I mentioned can be found at petras tech shop. Now mounting all this stuff will be fun... what kind of case will you be using?

Have you tried/seen the XSPC Full Cover block yet?
The finish on the acrylic is nicer than the EK IMO.
