Also, you would have to work really hard to fit a watercooling system in a HP case.

Here is a list for you to use as reference:

CPU: Apogee GTZ or D-tek fuzion v2 both are $61.95
Rad: BI GTX 360 $99.95 or Thermochill 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 OR D-tek Fuzion V1 - $47.99
Pump: MCP-655 - $74.95 OR Laing D4 - $29.99
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(Enzotech + MCP-655) OR $167.32(Laing D4 + D-tek Fuzion V1)

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 this is for CPU loop only and you have no plans on expanding to GPUs then I would recommend a 240 rad instead. Here are some choices:
Med/High CFM (Loud)
BI GTX 240 $89.95
Low/Med CFM (Quiet)
Feser 240 X-Changer $109.95
Swiftech 220 Rad $38.95

*NOTE 4: The Laing D4 and D-tek Fuzion V1 are very limited in quantities. They are both discontinued.

*NOTE 5: The Fuzion V1 has slag in one of two O-rings. Remember to take it apart and clean it before use.

*NOTE 6: 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 7: 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 8: I personally like the Enzotech Sapphire. You may substitute other said blocks with it too.

*NOTE 9: If you have a fan controller, then any of the above options are good.


I hope this helps.

Here is TnB=Gir's $150 Loop. Take a look:

Okay, I already know the answer. People buy crap.

However fr the purposes of this project, I just want to be able to reach higher clocks, and so I am turning to water cooling. But If it's going to cost me $200 just for the CPU, then this seems a bad idea. I am under the impression I can pull this off for $130ish. What do you think?

Here is a very decent watercooling kit that will out perform your tunic This kit has it all but a res, it has a T line, but it does have everything you need. Hope that helps.

Edit: oh it's also an sale and able to pick that cpu block to get. Grab a swiftech GTZ great block. That block alone is $65 bucks. This is a great deal for what you get

that kit should be pretty decent if you want to go for it.

we always say don't skimp if you really want to go water..

anyways... if you are dead set on water and your budget is really $130... you might as well wait until Petras has the D-tek Fuzion V1 again.

This is the least expensive CPU only loop water kit allowed by OCN. It does a very good job, I've used it, I started on it, it's a perfect starter kit for minimal initial investment that can also be highly upgraded for minimal costs later on down the road.

I have hit google. I can't seem to find out what a "TRUE" is.

And I don't want to go water cooling. I want to make my CPU cooler. If water is not much better than air within reasonable price, I'm not doing it!

TRUE = Thermalright Extreme Ultra, link


edit: water is typically significantly more expensive, but will give better temps and is highly enjoyable . if you are only looking to shave off a few degrees, just stick with air.

Another air cooling alternative - has kept both my AMD quads at very nice cold load temps and is currently keeping a 4.25 GHz E7200 at 28C idle and 42C load.

Yes. The Tuniq. That is my "control example". I want to find water cooling superior to that. That is my goal. Unless you're telling me that the tuniq works so well that it will not limit my CPU OCing.

I'm going to build a deneb Phenom 2 (to acompany my 4870x2), and I want to see how high I can actually get the thing!
