Water Cooled Build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok my old single core P4 machine is really starting to show its age. I really can't wait for Nehalems to settle in and DDR3 to go down in price and all that so I want to build a cheaper build and save money towards the future. But to make up for it, do some nice overclocking with water cooling. Basically the motherboard, ram, and processor are just for holding me off until later.

Build
  • CM 690
  • WD6400AAKS
  • Corsair 550VX
  • Gigabyte G31
  • e2200
  • Zalman STG1
  • G. Skill 2x1 GB DDR2 800
  • LG 22X DVD±R DVD Burner with LightScribe
  • ATI 4870

This should run me a little more then eight hundred dollars, and I really don't have money for better parts.


Water Cooling System


Well this will be my water cooling build so I really don't know what are the best parts. This is a budget water build and cant really spend more then $175. Here is what I have, and all at 3/8 barbs.
  • Swiftech MCR-220 Radiator
  • Swiftech Apogee GT universal water block
  • dB-1 Compact 12v Pump
  • Swiftech MCRES-Micro
  • Tygon R-3603 3/8" ID 1/2" OD Chemical Tubing <------How much should I need?

And is there anything else that I will need in this build? Anything I forgot? Please give me you comments and suggestions.

And while waiting for Nehalem I will mod the the CM 690 and put in a side window and maybe paint it and more.
