new uk store found - In need of advice

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
After searching for a long time i finally found a danger den supplier in the UK! They have what I think is some great bundles too. Can someone take a look at this page http://www.coolercases.co.uk/water_c...erden_kits.htm and let me know which is best for my P4 3.4Ghz (will / maybe overclocked to 4ghz) and my 6800GS XXX Edition (will be 8800 next year)

My temps are now:

CPU: 28 - 32C Idle 38c Load
GPU: 50 - 60C Idle/Load

I dont like these temps but hey:

HDD1 48c idle - 55c Load
HDD2 47c idle - 54c Load

Anyway I have some money and want a super soundless system as the fan on my gfx is like a jet AHH

anyway thanks everyone

CooleCustom is the way to go if you want a silent system as you can choose all of the component's yourself, the MCP655 is a good silent pump and i'm sure you can find a couple of silent fan's and a Heatercore on Coolercases.co.uk

Pump

DD 12V-D5 Pump

http://www.coolercases.co.uk/wc_pumps.htm

Water Block

1/2" TDX Intel 775

http://www.coolercases.co.uk/water_blocks_dangerden_cpu.htm

Radiator

1/2" XSPC R120-D

http://www.coolercases.co.uk/wc_radiators_xspc.htm

Reservoirs

I'd recommend any of the danger den range but it's up to you which you pick

http://www.coolercases.co.uk/wc_reservoirs.htm

Tubing

Tygon 1/2" ID Hose, the Tygon is the best in my opinion but again it's up to you

http://www.coolercases.co.uk/wc_hose.htm

Additives


A 12ml bottle of Zerex should do it, although other's will recommend plain antifreeze

http://www.coolercases.co.uk/wc_additives.htm

Tubing clamps

Again this all come's down to personal preferance, i used to use these when i have a Danger Den setup, Jubilee clip's are also good but do tend to cut into the tubing a bit and then there's the Crimped metal 'O' ring's these are the best but are permenant and require a crimping tool, i think tile snip's work but i'm not sure.

12mm -14.5mm Blk

http://www.coolercases.co.uk/wc_hose_clamps.htm


__________________________________________________ ____________

You'll also need 2 x 120mm Fan's for the Radiator, pick quiet one's with a high CFM (70+)

If your going to add anthing else then you need to remember this is a 1/2" ID Water Cooling setup, you'll need the 15mm Jubilee clip's or the 15mm 'O' Ring's if you're going to use them

If you need help setting up your water cooling use Burn's FAQ, there's also a link in my siganture

How many £'s are you willing to outlay ?

On that site you listed you can get yourself a complete TDX based system (just check on the pump you will get DD D5 or EHEIM 1250) from them for £226.00..here..top row-third from left.
Install it as it is all there and you are all ready to go.

cheers.. and be happy not mad !

Aaaah 12 hour leakage test...booo.

You need to assemble the kit first outside of the case (decide on component location/hose lenghts/hose runs for min turns etc) fill the sytem (use the coolant you intend to use and not just water) and purge the air. Let it run 5 or 10min after purge and shut it down. Let it sit idle for another 5min and recheck all your unions for leakage and tension of clamps. If it all looks good then start the system up and let it run for 1hr or so (personal preference) and recheck.

Then the fun begins with the actual installation into the case just take it slow and steady, rechecking all your actions as you go. Once it is all in and the coolant has been added, repurge the air from the system (it will take a little longer this time) turn off and check for leakage. Restart and run under close observation for 1hr or so.
Check the coolant level closely over the next couple of days.

Yes it takes time to setup but the gains are good.

The Swiftech H2O kits are supposed to be good. They use the Storm waterblock and MCP655 pump.

You can find them at www.overclock.co.uk

I used water cooling for a brief time, and I never leak tested anything.
