Project Liquid Chill

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am seriously trying to get into the water cooling game but my parents have done everything in their power, or so it seems, to stop me. Never fear, I always seem to prevail and I'm not about to give up with my Presler occasinally loading over 63c (was over 75c load but I reseated my Big Typhoon and it seems to have really helped) anyways, I would REALLY prefer to order as many parts as possible from Newegg, anything such as tubing or fittings which can be will be purchased from the local Home Depot. So without further ado, here is what I have so far:

Case: CM Stacker 830, it's a possibility, not sure if I really want a new case or if I want to spend almost $300 on said case but I'm not sure if my NZXT Nemesis Elite has the room in it for water cooling, also I would have to use 1 or 2 single 120mm rads instead of the double 120mm rad I picked out....
Pump: Swiftech MCP655
CPU Block: Swiftech APOGEE
Coolant: UV Green anti corrosive coolant which ships with Tt's Big Water systms
Rad: Swiftech "Quiet Power" MCR-220 dual 120mm

So how does it look so far? Any suggestions? What else do I need, remember I am a first time water cooler and am looking for a complete system to cool my CPU for now with the option to add my GPU and maybe chipset to the loop (the DD NV78 block costs WAY too much IMO).

EDIT/// I'm planning on using 3/8" diameter tubing because that is what that particular rad uses but my block and pump are compatible with either that or 1/2" so I am exploring the possibility to go 1/2" instead since that will offer better cooling.

EDIT/// Would I be better off just getting a Tt Big Water 745 for $168 instead?

no, stick w/ the parts you're looking at. keep your current case and get a swiftech radbox. it will allow you to mount your double rad on the back of your case using the existing fan holes.

link?

I think the Big Water is my best bet simply because I know it will all work well together and plus its cheaper and looks pretty cool

So you are saying that I can mount a DUAL 120mm rad to this SINGLE 120mm radbox?

I am now officially nursing 4 basic plans:

1) Keep case + Big Water 745
2) Keep case + Custom WC
3) CM Stacker 830 + Big Water 745
4) CM Stacker 830+ Custom WC.

Yes of course. It just hangs down a little.

Yup, its just half of the RAD will be below the the RADbox. And I would do option #3 because I am in love with the Stacker 830 and the bigwater will be sufficient enough and is much less of a hassle than a custom kit, I know, I built one.
