Watercooled system

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be building my first water cooled system. I plan on getting an Exos-2 from Koolance to run it. I want to cool the CPU, Chipset, 2 graphic cards, ram, and the HD. I plan on using parts mainly from Koolance, FrozenCPU, and Cool Matic to set it up. Is it a good idea to cool an entire system this way? This will also be my first time overclocking a system too. Attached is the system that I am going to be building with links to all of the parts. Any advice?

Wow that looks like an awesome build. I wouldn't watercool the chipset block I would use something like this.

I would also get this mobo because you "by 16" instead of by 8 on both pci-e ports

I would also go with the X-fi sound card as well

On the motherboard that you are planning on buying (i have the same one) when you are using 2 sticks of RAM, you put on stick in channel A1 and one stick in channel B1. This will conflict with using the RAM watercooler since I believe that the water cooler is used on 2 RAM sticks that are next to each other. You may want to check that out.

Good luck and have fun
