Have a Budget WC Loop coming.. Need to estimate performance.. see if I spenet wisely

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Here it is: I wanted something I could mount externally because I just got a new midtower antec 300 and there's no way I'm buying a bigger case just yet.
My components are as follows:
MCR220-Drive
Pump in rad I think its the swiftech 350
1/2 ID tubing
Enzo Sapphire CPU Block
EK FC480 GPU Block
Swiftech Radbox
Total cost: 300.
My question is will this perform OK, if I had Y splitters and could I even cool 2x480's with this, or will I have to add second rad pump?
Not looking to cool chipset or ram or hdd.
If you guys have any suggestions for high performance med priced external solutions that look neat please let me know. I am very new to WC, I have been on air since I started building PC's in 1998.

You need to add fans and barbs to the list as well.
The 350 will handle all of it.
I used 1/2 barbs with 7/16 tubing for a yr and I had no leaks

you already have those parts listed above, or that's what you plan on purchasing?

it looks pretty good for a budget build, but my main worry is running a CPU + GTX480 on a dual radiator... temps will be sub par - you at least want to have a 3x120mm radiator for a system like that, but you shouldn't have any problems with the MCP-350 pump integrated into the Swiftech MCR-Drive radiators running a simple CPU + GPU loop

I already purchased. I guess I should have asked first, but I saw no other viable alternatives for an external solution.
do they make all in one triple radiator setups?, and how do you think it will perform with two gtx 480's?Hmm I really wanted an all in one solution, thats nothing like the overpriced exos kits. I got the MCR drive cheap w/ fittings and water block for cpu for 160 shipped.
the water block with fittings cost me about 120 shipped.
I have heard that you can keep the fan on the 480 gpu and use an older model swiftech cooler w/ adapter for G92, but not sure how much I would have saved.

It's best that SLI 480s be given 120.2 or 120.3 for the set. Having SLI 480s + i7 on a 120.2 will give you worse temps vs on air.
