Help me put together a custom water cooling loop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So basically my main problem is choosing the water blocks, I've done about zero research so far so I want to know what is the best water block for my Pentium D 930 Presler (LGA 775) and what is the best block for a 7900GTX.

I have a NZXT Nemesis Elite case with 3x120MM fans and I think the best idea for my case (assuming a 100% internal system) is to have 2 120MM single rads, 1 on my side panel intake fan and another on my rear exhaust fan and have them distributed throughout the loop. I may or may not cool the NB with the water cooling loop because according to speedfan my NB is always around 30c even with full voltage but I'm not sure if thats the NB temp or something else LOL, with my CPU on water I should be able to get in excess of 300-350MHz FSB so it may get a bit hotter, what do you guys think?

Also, for the 7900GTX I want a block that will cool down the GPU core, the GDDR3 as well as the VREGs because I know they are paramount in their importance and the major shortcoming of the first nVidia 7 series water blocks was that they failed to cool the VREGs leading to instability or poor overclocks.

Price is no issue at this point (I'm in the planning phase) but I'll know what my budget is after I sell my spare HDD and count the money I got for Iranian new year

Ok, I quickly counted my money (it was mostly $20s so it was quick) and I have $200 in cash right now, also I'm selling my 200GB Maxtor HDD for $50 next month and I have $100 in "other funds" for those of you configuring a system for me try to keep it under $200, although I'd be willing to go up to $300 for a really good system.
