Need Serious Build/Watercooling help

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Im dumping my pentium 4 and im getting an AMD Athlon XP, but ill need some help. When i am done selling my stuff, i am going to have anywhere from $900 to $1100 to spend on my new rig. Im looking at a 4000+ and an asus sli motherboard. I have corsair memory, but im looking to get new corsair XMS or something(i have value select).

One of the bigger problems i have is with my watercooling. I have an aquarius III and im going to sell it for $200, and i want to make a custom watercooling system. I have a 7800GTX, and i would like it to cool the memory too, but i dont want to pay $150 for a GPU waterblock. I need a custom WC kit, to cool a cpu and gpu. I am fully capable of putting it together, i just need help selecting and i dont know where to get the best deals.

PS - I would like to have some leftover money from the build, so im looking for the best value, not just spending all my money.

EDIT: I would prefer an internal water cooling system

Rad: 77 bonneville heatercore
CPU: Swiftech Apogee
GPU: Danger Den MAZE 4 with ramsinks (because watercooled ram = $129)
Tubing: 10ft Masterkleer (because having extra is good)
T-line setup: Danger Den fillport & T fitting
Pump: Danger Den D5

Those are my picks.

Actually if you go HERE and then add it to your cart and enter "cryo-laboratory" without the quotes you'll get the Apogee at 39.95 with free shipping. That's going to be the cheapest. Jab-Tech has great service. I got mine in 2 days.

I must say, the NV-78 waterblock that does both GPU and RAM is a very high-quality block. Agreed, it only does one side of RAM, but RAMsinks on the other side take care of that. It is pricey, but it is overall a very high-quality block.

If you want the system to be completely internal go with:

MCP655 Pump $79
http://www.jab-tech.com/Swiftech-MCP...p-pr-2982.html

CPU Block: Apogee $40 w/ snerps deal
http://www.jab-tech.com/Swiftech-Apo...k-pr-3175.html

Water Block: Maze 4 $45
http://www.jab-tech.com/The-Danger-D...s-pr-3062.html

Radiator: Black Ice Xtreme II Dual 120mm $60
http://www.jab-tech.com/Black-Ice-Xt...k-pr-2987.html

Resivoir: Swiftech 5.25 Bay Res $18
http://www.jab-tech.com/Swiftech-MCR...S-pr-2554.html

Tubing is fine

Coolant is fine

You might want to consider some sort of mount for the radiator.
