Suggestions For a WC Kit

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Okay, I want to go to WC in my computer.

I plan to spend in ~$180 in parts. I only want to have the CPU hooked up in the beginning.

I was thinking about putting the following in:

1) Danger Den Black Ice GT Stealth 120 X-Flow Radiator - Black
2) XSPC Bay Reservoir Pump Combo
3) Danger Den TDX M2 Copper CPU Water Block

What are the general feelings about these products, and what else do I need?

well you need tubing if you havent considered it and a liquid. for tubing i recommend Feser Tube Active UV Hose . and for a liquid i recommend Fesser One.

ok now that we have that settled i would recommend Swiftech MCR120. it is a good Rad for the cost and dissipates the heat well.

you are going to want a powerful pump so om going to recommend the DD-CPX1 12V Pump . it is a good pump.

i like your Res. i have thought about an external one myself.

Hey hows the weather in Orfino, haven't been there in a while. Boise is going to get warm this weekend 90F woot.

Anyway . . For $180, I would suggest this. Switech220 .

Reason being, it's a good kit to get your feet wet. IIRC you can take the CPU block off the pump and solder mod it to a DDC 3.2 and get a better top and CPU block at a later date. The 220 rad should beat most 120 rads.

Edited to add: and it should be more than enough for a 4200

I'd be leary about buying a pre-built loop kit. From what I hear they are all crap. And I'd go with a 240 rad. Much better cooling potential. I love DangerDen but shop around for the best price.

I don't know anything about that pump/res combo

The block should be good. Just becarefull of the acryllic top! They can crack and cost you buko bucks when u have to replace wet boards. Look for something non-seethru. lol

Hope this helps a little.

That Swifty kit he linked you to up there is a good one, especially at that price...It would be hard to put one together for that kind of $$$...Its an easy one to upgrade to...I would always go at least a 240 rad for CPU and a 360 for CPU and GPU....I'd us some decent cfm fans on your rad..86cfm Pana..

I'll leave you my cleaning and set-up PDF, it has a lot of basic stuff in it, its how I do my loops...Be sure to read all the stickies here also, there is a lot of good info in them....
