Is this a good idea?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm building a system with a Koolance Exos 2. It has a 3/8" hose connections. I'm thinking of splitting the 3/8" to two 1/4" and having one run to the CPU and Ram, and the other one run to the GPU's and HD. Is this a good idea or would it work better if I just run them all in one line at 3/8"? Below is a list links for the components that I am plannign on using.

Exos 2

CPU Cooler- Volcano 4005

GPU Cooler- Coolmatic G70

HD Cooler

Ram Cooler


The Chipset is goign to be air cooled with the Swiftech MCX159-CU

um........im not sure if its a good idea to even have water cooling on ya hard disks and even ya ram, youd want to have a think about it being really nescessary, i can understand cpu and gpu especially when going down the peltier road but having all that extra plumbing just asks for problems surely, but if you want to do this then enjoy, it will be outrageous thats for sure but id be spending my money on something that will give me more performance overall.if you are having an overheating problem then get an airconditioner maybe, is this a good idea? im saying no....sorry

Ok. What if I just run it to my CPU and GPU. Would it be better to run them one after another, or split the 3/8" to 1/4" and run them seperatly?

Apperantly you have some money to burn on this setup. If that is the case, do not go with the Koolance. Make a custom setup. I will supply you with a list of parts in one moment. I can garantee that you will have better temps than with the Koolance.
What case are you planning to use?
Do you want an LCD screen (Like the Koolance one?)
Are you willing to get a diiferent case? (One that is watercooling nirvana?)
Have you purchased you PC components yet?
How much money do you have to spend?

Yea, money isnt to much of a problem. I've been saving for a year. I'm going with a lian Li V PC2000A case, so room shouldn't be a problem. I would like an LCD display but I dont have to have one. This is also my first time using watercooling, so I'm trying to keep it simple. I't could also be internal or external, but if it's external I'm trying to keep it looking nice.

Have you read my ohter edits? If you have not bought your components yet, then I can really help you. If you have a very high budget (the best would be to post it, so I know), then you should seriously consider Phase Change. That is the best cooling on the market, it will easily get you 500 more mHz.

I'm not buying any parts until next month when I get back to the states and my budget is around $5,000.

Then we can really help you. I will start a new thread for you in the AMD build logs titled Timmmayh's Dream Rig, we can edit that later. I will begin the list of the best you can buy with that money, keeping your current suggestions in mind.
