New water cooling system: Input required(welcome) - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Thread Starter 
I decided to order everything from Petra's workshop. I went to a few forums and they have GREAT reviews, also they have all the equipment i need exept the coolant. go figure, its always liek this anyways. usually its the good rads, or pumps that are missing. On petra's the black ice extreme is 144$.

here is the make up so far. I decided to forego the reservoir. there is a cool one i saw on xoxide for 29.99$: Aquabay M3.

Here is the list:
Swiftech Apogee™ GTZ Waterblock $64.95
12 X Stainless Steel Clamp $12.00
Laing D4/MCP650 Inline 12V DC Pump $29.95
1/2" ID (3/4" OD) Masterkleer Clear PVC Tubing $12.75
2 X 120mm Scythe SY1225SL12SH "Slip Stream" Case Fan (110.31 CFM, 37 dBA) $17.98
Swiftech MCR-320 "Quiet Power" Series Radiator - Black - 53.99

Fesser coolant 1L from Directcanada.com at 16.13$

yes i ordered two yate loons because i will use my silverstone FM on the big typhoon and my three 120mm fans on my Tower to fan the radiator

That's the black ice GTX. HW Labs has a confusing lineup, I'll detail it below.

In terms of worst to best going from left to right:

Black Ice Micro > Black Ice Pro > Black Ice GT Stealth(GTS) > Black Ice Extreme(BIX) > Black Ice GT Extreme(BI GTX)

I recommend staying away from the thermaltake bay res. You never know with thermaltake, they may have put a random piece of aluminum in the acrylic just for lulz.

For bay reservoirs, XSPC and Danger Den make good ones. If you don't need them in a bay, go with the Swiftech Micro Reservoirs or the EK cylinder res.

Also, I suggest going with 7/16" masterkleer. It fits 1/2" barbs tighter and has less of a chance of slipping off or leaking at the barbs.

Also make sure you order some PT Nuke.

And you're set.

what is the opinion on the Laing D4/MCP650 pump versus the Laing D5 Vario/Swiftech MCP655.

Some places say the D4 is too lound and is ubearable, but i have nothing to support that the D4 is any louder than the D5.

I have a D4 running in my GPU/NB loop and a D5 Vario in my CPU loop. The D4 is definitely louder than the D5, but I don't consider it unbearable. For the most part, my fans drown the sound out, but it's a totally different frequency.

In terms of power, the D4 is a little bit better than the D5-B, which is a D5 Vario locked at the 4 setting.

Ah screw it, im gettnig the D4. IM more worried about heat and dust collection in my case. Radiators will be easier to clean than a whole case full of dust. I always game with my 5.1 system blasted max anyways....

Thank you all for your help.
I will also go for the 7/16" masterkleer since you said it fits 1/2 fittings. Are you sure the PT Nuke is okay in the Feser coolant?

Yep it's perfectly fine.
