rate my loop ideas

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
This is what I'm thinking of buying for the watercooling setup in the rig I'm building this summer. Let me know what you think of it and what I could do better.
  • D-tek Fuzion v2 cpu block
  • MCR-220 Radiator
  • Swiftech MCP655 Pump
  • a Magicool cylindrical resevoir

I'm not sure if i'll need to add a NB/SB block to the loop or run it through my graphics card. Anyone think I should/should not?

motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16813136038

graphics card: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127329

I'm not going to be running the card in SLI, and I can get another graphics card if there is something horrible I'm overlooking about that one.

What CPU are you gonna be cooling? I'd recommend at least a 360 Rad if you're cooling both a CPU and GPU in one loop. WCing the NB/SB is unnecessary.

Kind of important to let people know what CPU you are using... Are you planning to OverClock ???

If you run a Intel Quad Core, I would keep it on a seperate loop from GPU. If you plan on OverClocking a Quad Core, then I would recommend water cooling the NB ...

I would recommend the ThermoChill PA120.3 ...

You could then run a Thermochill PA120.2 on the GPU ...

or, Run a single loop, maybe using the following:

pump: Swiftech MCP-355 + XSPC reservoir top
rad1: Thermochill PA120.3
rad2: Thermochill PA120.2
CPU: D-TEK FuZion v2 (w/ quad plate)
GPU: Swiftech MCW60 + ram sinks

That setup would keep you pretty dang close to ambient at idle ...
Plus, with Thermochill, you can run low speed fans (Yate Loons), and have a system that not only cools like a mother, but is quiet ...

oops, I knew I had forgotten to include something. I'm going to run a Quad Core, and overclock it sometime down the line. As for the radiators, Is it reall necessary to have 2 radiators? Could I get a 4-fan radiator instead? and the Thermochills are just too expensive.

If you want to adequatlely cool a quad and a graphics card you're gonna need either a good 3 fan rad ($125+) or a 4 fan rad ($150). Otherwise you're better off saving the money and sticking with air because you probably won't get any better results than the top end air coolers like the TRUE.

You can get a quad HC for a pretty good price, if they ever get them back in stock again..Quad HC..Or with a good pump you can double up on Bonnie cores in series..Heater Core.

Or roll your own...

...Barbs for heater-core-fstfrddy

...How to make a dual heater core fan shroud...

...Info: Using teflon tape

Like Puff was saying if you under rad you might as well stick with a HSF...

So would doubling up on those work well? If not have you heard anything about the Black Ice GTX480 as a quad radiator?

The Black Ice GTX480 is an awesome radiator. If you have room for it, I would highly recommend it.
