WC setup! rate this please?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
after reading many posts here is what i've decided on:

Swiftech Apogeeâ„¢ GTZ CPU Waterblock $64.95
D-Tek FuZion GFX 2 GPU Waterblock $46.99
D-Tek GFX 2 nVidia® 200 Series Bracket Kit $3.99
Laing DDC-3.2 (18W)/Swiftech MCP355 Inline 12V DC Pump $74.99
Swiftech MCRES-MICRO Rev2 Reservoir $25.95


as far as tubing i haven't decided yet, but tygon or smartcoils are looking good.

as far as radiator goes i'm in a bind.. i plan on cooling the cpu, gpu, and possibly the NB (mobo came with a fan to clip onto the heatsink and that thing is LOUD!) so i've heard that ideally you would use a dual radiator per component that needs WCooled but that seems a little excessive.

i was hoping to get a dual radiator (i.e. HW Labs Black Ice GT Xtreme 240)
because it would definitely fit inside of my case.. but i was open to the idea of a triple
i.e.

HW Labs Black Ice GT Xtreme 360 $124.95
w/ Scythe SFF21F S-FLEXâ„¢ (63.7 CFM/28 dBA) $13.99 (x 2 or 3)

total... $383. ish

soooo... any suggestions? i can't decide on a radiator setup and need a little bit of advice on a NB block (should i get one?)
i think that covers pretty much everything.

thanks in advance!

I'd get the triple since you want to add you 280 to the loop. You should also get a uni-sink for the gpu to keep the memory cool.

triple does sound a little better. so let's say one day i decide to add another 280.. or even 2 more gtx 280's.. a triple radiator still going to cut it?
and as for the uni-sink, i've heard that they perform pretty much the same as the chip only blocks and that ramsinks would be sufficient?

what are your thoughts on that?

I'm not too sure but I think that 2 more 280's might be a bit much. Two 280's would probably work, but I'd say that you need some good, high cfm fans on the rad. Probably something 80+ cfm and 38mm, maybe some scythe ultra kazes.

And the uni-sink is supposed to work in tangent with the chip only block. You might be thinking of the full cover blocks, but the chip only blocks perform a few degrees better since they don't introduce the heat from the ram into the loop. I'm probably going to pick up this combo soon. Regular ramsinks would probably do the same, they are just ugly compared to the uni-sink.

haha okay good call.. ramsinks are pretty damn ugly.
i guess i'll go with the triple rad with some higher cfm fans
hmmmm... wait i might just go with the gtx 480 if it's going to be questionable adding a third gtx .. better overkill than sorry, right?

i just have to figure out how to fit that into the coolermaster HAF first (doesn't look like too much of a problem).

total... ... $511.75 ouchey
merry xmas i guess.
