Need Help on finishing touches. Cosmos S

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So, after being on air for so long, I'm finally just want to use water cooling on my new build. So as a water cooling newbie I am here for your help! After much research I have settled on a 1 loop 2 rad setup cooling cpu and crossfire 4870's. Hardware is as followed, will even take suggested changed to hardware since I haven't ordered yet, but I think its pretty good since I combo deal stacked on newegg for a savings of $250. This will be an overclock build where I'm praying I got a nice e8400 that will allow me to clock it to a 533 FSB with low voltage! The 4870's will also receive a moderate overclock, but not many know how far they can go yet due to CCC capping.

Hardware:
CPU: E8400
Mobo: Asus P5E x38 flashed to rampage
Ram: G.Skill 1066(2x2gb)
PSU: Corsair 750TX
Case: Cosmos S 1100
GPU: Two 4870's
HHD: Three(already had)
Optical: One(already had)


And now the part where I need the help, for what I wanted to buy for watercooling since I dont even know if I would be better off with loops(I also don't want to spend that much and to try to keep it below $350-400. I'm not looking for anything with flashy LED's since the case will be closed and does not have a window. With my loop plan I will be using the 240 for the CPU and the 360 for the GPU's.
Black Ice XtremeIII Radiator - $65
Black Ice XtremeII Radiator - $51
Swiftech MCP655â„¢ 12 VDC Pump - $80
D-tek Fuzion V2 - $64
2x Swiftech MCW60-R - $37/ea.
10' Tygon R-3603 1/2" ID 3/4" OD Chemical Tubing - $29
Dangerden Fill Syringe - $2(to make life easier)
20x Plastic Tubing Clamps - $6
5x YATE LOON 120mm Case Fan - D12SL-12 - $16
2x Swiftech MC14 Copper Heatsinks - $13/ea. (not sure how many or which ones I will need for the 4870's
Swiftech MCRES525 "BAY RES" Reservoir - $17 (also not sure if i should go with a T line or a different type of Res)

Total: $413

And so I think that completes the list, if I'm forgetting something small or large... please tell me because I'm unsure.

And now on to the way I was going to mount stuff in the case(i tried searching for ways that other people did it but couldn't seem to find any that did this)

(picture of the case if you want to draw something up real quick)

And that is what I have come up with, hopefully there will be some quick responses since I want to order by tomorrow to hopefully get all the parts before the weekend, and a pre-thank you for anyone that will be commenting!

Several suggestions for you:

I'd suggest getting more than 7' of tubing, you'll likely need around 10'
I think you should get some better rads, the Black Ice GT Stealth series is on the low end of the totem pole, you'd be better off with the Black Ice Extreme or Black Ice Pro series.

I would have it go through the 360mm first, then the 240 for the cards.

Make sure the 655 pump is a vario for more flow. Stay away from the 655-B.

One pack of ram sinks per card should do ya.

You must post some pic's for us to enjoy... Its like a rule here...or is it a guide line..

Thank you for the suggestions, I will be switching to 10' of tubing and those two radiators for the small price upgrade for nice performance! Rep has been handed out! As for switching rad order, I would think the two GPU's would cause more heat then the CPU, but I guess I will find out. As for the pictures I will post them, although I am not really going to be going overboard on the mods so it might not look as pretty as the rest of them. And original post has been edited to reflect new changes!
