My first WC attempt!

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Well guys, with a QX9650 on the way and my air cooling already at its best, I think its time to put my future CPU's under water.

So from what I read on here, I have come up with the following list of parts:



I am aiming for maximum cooling on the CPU only. I have an Antec 1200 so I am not too sure how I will mount the rad but I will probably drill some holes somewhere and stick it on the side or back of the case.

So guys, would this be a good way to cool an overclocked QX9650?

I decided to get the ready made coolant because I can't be asked to go hunting around for Distilled water. I may also add another 3 fans in the future.

I will start buying this lot in the next month after I have a sold a couple of things.

Cheers guys

I would get a different reservoir and grab the quad core insert for the v2, looks good!

I would just use a T-line, don't like the sound of slushy water when the rest of my rig is silent.

Yeah get the quad insert and looks good...
I'd also run on distilled water What tube size are you using?

1/2 ID tubing. Whats so bad about the res? I swear I have read that a Res is quicker to fill, holds more liquid so therefore will aid cooling slightly.

Also, is that non-conductive fluid going to effect my cooling? Because I do like that peace of mind.

I would get a feser rad insted of the thermochill as it works better with the low cfm fans you want. Other than that its a good loop

you also dont need the pc ice coolant. A gallon of distilled and a bottle of pt nuke (which will last forever) works just as well

1. The difference between the PA and the Feser won't be that much.

2. And you need more than 1 foot of tubing. Get 15 feet and you will have extra just in case. Also get 2 of the clamp x10 packages.

3. The whole nonconductive thing is just a marketing ploy. It's basically just distilled water with dye.

4. Are you dead set on those fans? You can get better for the money.

I will be getting a few meters of the tubing, and no I am not dead set on those fans. Wanna link me to some better ones?
