New water cooling system: Input required(welcome)

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Good afternoon all.

For some of you that know me, I have decided to take the plunge into water cooling(pun intended). Here is what I am ordreing online at http://www.performance-pcs.com
Please feel free to comment, I have read countless threads and believe Its the innevitable solution. I am tired of the noisy fans, the collecting dust in my room and the sheer hotness (negative) of my system. I get cpu temps up to 70 in a room at ambient temperature of 25 with a mild overclock.

Look below, keep in mind I will add either a GTX 280 or a HD4870X2 in the loop in the next 8 months or so... ALSO, is there a water bock that is compatible with the new GTX 280 that can also work with the 8800GTS? i figure i can buy one now and use it for a new card later...

I don't like the pump/res combo. The D4 may still be on sale at Petra's. You may save a few bucks and get better performance for your quad out of a Danger Den MC-TDX with a D4 also.
Also noticing your tubing size and fittings all seem to be different....wha?

If you go with my suggestions, you will need 1/2" ID tubing and 1/2" fittings, which will be good for all the high-flow parts.

You're slightly off.

Ditch that tubing. It's 1/4 inch and you've got fittings for 1/2 Inch but just for your radiator.

Ditch the pump/res combo - will be better off with a D4/650 or a D5/655 pump. Both have 1/2 fittings.

The XSPC res/pump combo is REALLY underpowered compared to a D5/DDC + top. I highly suggest going with one of those.

Also, the MCR320 will perform better than a BIP 120x3. If you're wanting to order everything from Performance PCs though, go with the BIX 360 since PPC's overprices the MCR320. The BIX will outperform the MCR.

You also got 1/4" tubing instead of 1/2".

Green tubing and blue coolant, that will look brown if the blue even shows through the tubing itself.

What I would buy for a CPU only loop:

Pump: Laing D4 $29.95
RAD: Black Ice Pro III $39.95
CPU: Swiftech Apogee GTZ $69.90
tubing: 15ft Duralene 1/2" ID 3/4" OD $10.35 (ive used this and Tygon they are really close together in quality and well this is MUCH cheaper
fans: 3 x Scythe 120x25mm SlipStream 110cfm $26.85 (even better performance you can get 3 more and set it up in push pull config)
Coolant: any Feser one color is fine imo $16.95 (most of em sale for about this much)

total : $193 (w/o shipping and a little extra for fittings and etc...)

$30 cheaper than what you were spending your money on and a LOT better

hope I helped good luck

Omaryunus, you do realise I live in Canada right? each 'extra' store i go to adds at least an extra 15$ shipping fee minimum. Also, I will need clamps right?

So far, Performance PC offers me shipping for about 21 bucks. Sidewinder, 31 bucks and petra's workshop, im still waiting on an estimate, their online system doesnt do international.

So freekin sad that some stores have everything i need EXEPT the good pumps, or CPU block.
Thanks to all who have helped so far, right now im looking at the pumps suggested. the one for 29.99 seems great from petras, i might end up ordering from them if they offer reasonable shipping. ONe site, i think it was xoxide offered me shipping for 65$

Question: MCR320 Radiator vs HW Labs Black Ice GT Stealth 360
The MCR320 is about 6 buks cheaper and some places say its better.

Yes the MCR320 > GTS 360. But BIX 360 > both.
