Need advice

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So several months ago I asked for suggestions as to what stuff to buy for my m-atx build. Since then my case and motherboard have changed and its time for some different suggestions for my current sig rig.

So far I have:

-A Feser Triple with the 17 mm spacing
-Full coverage EK gpu block

I need everything else. I'm going for reasonably quiet operation with a nice overclock. Thanks in advance.

^that was exactly what I was thinking, but I'm also wondering about tubing, barbs, fluid, fans, good uv lights and dye, etc...

you can disregard my talks about rads as you have yours. i would classify your rad in the low-med CFM section. you can take a look at the fans i listed Here is a list for you to use as reference:

CPU: Apogee GTZ or D-tek fuzion v2 both are $61.95
Rad: GTX360 $99.95 or PA120.3 $119.95
Pump+Res option 1: MCP-655 $74.95 + Microres v2 $24.50
Pump+Res option 2: MCP-355 $63.95 + XSPC Res-Top $38.95
Tubing: 7/16"ID Durelene $0.45/ft
Fans: GTX360: 114CFM Scythe $8.95/each or PA120.3: 88CFM Yate Loons $3.30/each (Pricing for 3-9 fans)
Barbs: DD/BP Fatboys $2.50/each
Coolant: Distilled water from local supermarket. (Price will vary on your store)
Misc: PT-Nuke $2.50

Now for totals... all totals have 20ft of tubing, 8 barbs, and 3x fans.
Med/High CFM (Loud)
Option 1 - GTX360+pumpres1+Scythes= $317.20
Option 2 - GTX360+pumpres2+Scythes= $320.65
Low/Med CFM (Quiet)
Option 3 - PA120.3+pumpres1+Y-L= $319.80
Option 4 - PA120.3+pumpres2+Y-L= $323.25

Cheapest option::
CPU: Enzotech Sapphire - $54.99
Pump: MCP-655 - $74.95
Rad: Swifty 320 - 48.95
T-block: Enzotech brass T -$8.99
Tubing: 20ft durelene - $9
Barbs: 5x Fatboys - $12.50
Fans: 3x Yate Loons - $9.90

Total: $219.28

If you are lacking in space, Options 2 and 4 would be best. If you want silence w/o a fan controller, Option 3 and 4 are for you (1 and 2 if you have fan controller). If you have extra space and want a separate res then Options 1 and 3.

*NOTE 1: If you are on a really tight budget and this is still too high, switch the rad to...
Swiftech 320 rad $48.95.
For fans, I would use the Yate Loons mentioned before. (This rad is a single pass and not dual like the other two.)

*NOTE 2: If you are on a really tight budget, cut out the reservoirs and use a T-line. You'll have to buy a T-fitting in its place though. I would recommend the...
Enzotech Brass T $8.99
Do realize that you would need to add 3 more fittings too.

*NOTE 3: If you do pick a reservoir and you are getting the Swiftech Microres.. there is the previous version for cheaper...
Swiftech Microres V1 $17.99

*NOTE 4: I personally like the Enzotech Sapphire. You may substitute other said blocks with it too.

*NOTE 5: You may or may not want to add GPUs to your loop down the road so here are some GPU only block recommendations(If you want fullcover blocks, they are much more expensive and much more specialized.):
D-Tek Fuzion GFX v2 $46.95
Swiftech MCW-60 Rev.2 $39.95

*NOTE 6: If you have a fan controller, then any of the above options are good.


I hope this helps.

That is a great list you've got there, I'm grateful, and glad I could help you update it a bit
Also the link shows a discount on the loons when you buy 3.
