If you can fit a 360 Rad, why not the MCR 320 from Sidewinders.com
http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/swmcqupo3xbl.html
It's only about $10 more, and I'm sure it'll perform a lot better

Thanks, but I have already stated that I cannot fit a 360.

Setup looks good, though I personally prefer using zip-ties rather than hose clamps; since you're using 7/16" tubing on 1/2" barbs the zip-ties would be more than enough.


Side note: for a CPU only loop the MCR-220 is certainly enough for a Quad, even taking some overclocking into account. 360mm radiators really only become necessary when adding more components into the loop such as a GPU.

noldevin,

All looks good! Though I know you did say don't suggest any other parts, the Radiator will play a huge part in your cooling. I would take a look at a 2 pass, double row. Something like this: http://dangerden.com/store/product.p...85&page=1#tabs

I am not sure of the differences between the Black Ice and the Swiftech MCR220, but I do know the performance is better. I know members here were suggesting putting more toward cpu waterblock/radiators.

Everything looks good though, like Radodrill said, you can get those clamps, but zipties work too. I like the clamps, some don't. Let us know how things go when you get the parts! Good luck bud, and you won't regret going wc'ing, it is allot of fun.

The Swiftech MCR-220 is actually a very good radiator and is optimized for low-CFM fans; performance is probably similar to a BIP or BIX

There about like a BIP, the BIX is a double row rad...

I did want to get one of the more expensive double row radiators, but my budget was already stretched to (more like over) the limit. I just got lucky and remembered my brother owed me some cash. I may add a double row 120mm rad to my rear exhaust mount later on. We will see how this setup fares first, I'm sure it'll be MUCH better than my current 43 idle/68 load. I'll be adding pics to my build log for you all to see, since I haven't given it any attention in a while.

I did go ahead and pull the trigger, came to just about 240 total. Damn tax
I added some PT nuke and petras clear UV blue dye as well.

Thanks everyone for helping me choose my setup!

Can't wait to see it. As has been said we like pics!

Also, i think for now the 220 should be okay, you'll know as soon as you set it up though.

You will enjoy watercooling. It is rather simple once you get it all down. Setting up the first loop is just a learning experience. You learn what not to do on the next loop! haha

Then the second loop, you learn even more. It is addictive, but the results are worth it. Post pics asap!

The newegg order is due in tomorrow! But Petras doesn't say anything about a tracking number or anything

Too bad its finals week. Except its not the finals that kill my time, its the stupid 4 hour graduation practice 3 times this week. Who needs 12 hours of practice for a 30 minute ceremony?
