Ok Brand new to water cooling

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
ok so my first water cooling kit is on its it's way
it consists of a resivoir/pump together a 360 rad a 120 rad cpu block and 2 (crossfire) 5870 blocks thats will be connected together

could someone please tell me what the best order to connect these would be?

Thank you, also is there anything else i should know besides running it for 24 hrs to check for leaks?

thank you ,kblgy

this is also the kit i purchased, i added the 120 rad and also added the 2 5870 blocks (althought it shows a 230v german pump i am getting a the same pump in a 12v version for us)

Should go:
Pump > 120RAD > CPU > 5870(1) > 5870(2) > 360RAD > PUMP

Most likely the 360 will be able to handle the heat load but may need some more fans - adding 3 fans to the other side of the rad will help out a lot. But other than that, Push-Pull setup on both rads and you'll be in great shape.

You can turn an OK rad into a decent one with push-pull fans on shrouds.

if you can I would cancel the order for that kit. You'd be better off getting the rasa 360 kit

there's a huge difference, especially in the cpu block. The one that comes with the phobya kit really isn't good. The rasa block is one of the best. also the rasa rx360 kit is pretty sweet for loops that aren't super complicated

well since i already purchased this one i'm going to stay with it, but i still do appreciate any help i can get from you.

what i really need to know now is rad placement. i know i'll be putting the 360 rad on top (inside) i have a haf 932 but the placement of the 120 is where i'm not certain,i think it will fit inside on the back and if not it should fit on the bottom but can anyone help with this ?? thank you and pictures would help also.. thank you again

Your best bet is probably to mount the 120mm rad in the back. It should fit without any problems.
