First time setup questions

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So far I have picked out
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/64...ump_Combo.html
and
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/40...r_-_Black.html

If someone could point me to the barbs/fittings/tubing I will need to complete a crossfire loop I would appreciate greatly. I will probably be using either
http://www.swiftnets.com/products/mcw80.asp
or
http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16835106059
for the waterblocks. Which one would be best for the money. BTW these are for my two 5750s

What is budget?
Are you not doing CPU?
GPU-The swiftech one scince you cant do full cover and how will you cool the things besides the gpu core?
BTW is that block even compatible with the 5750?
Do u need a wb for a 5750? are you overclocking it? Just for looks? for fun?

5750 is a really odd choice for CF, let alone water cooling. Are you doing this just for the fun factor or do you want extra gaming performance?

Because if it's the latter, honestly the best recommendation is to upgrade those video cards to at least 5850 level.

I want it to be under 200 if possible. I am only doing a dual gpu loop. I probably won't add cpu in the future because I have a thing for air cooled CPUs. I plan on cooling the memory by using ramsinks. I have been looking at
http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...product_id=104
as a cheaper alternative to the one i mentioned before. Would that be adequate? The tubing is going to be 1/4'' so I was wondering if I had to match up the IDs of the tubing and the fittings?

Also, I do not do extreme gaming so I really don't want to upgrade gpus. Also its kind of just for the experience. I don't mind what happens to the gpus so I thought this would be a good test run.

WHY are you watercooling 5750 anyways?
Well IF you really want to how about an EK block? Danger Den?

Are these blocks compatible with 5750?

Ok so I've decided that for my pump/res i will use
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/64...tl=g30c107s152
for my two graphics card I will use these
http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...product_id=104
for my radiator I will use
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/40...?tl=g30c95s160
and for my tubing I will use 3 feet of this
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10...0c99s170#blank

remember this is just for two graphics cards. I will either use cable ties or clamps from home depot. A. will this be a good enough system to keep my graphics card cool and B. Will this setup actually work?

I'm pretty sure that the barbs come with the res/pump but yes I need two for the radiator. I do not need barbs for the blocks do i?

No not for the block. If you want them all to match you may want to get compression fitting for it all, but then you dont need clamps. Otherwise it should all work. Just remember to select the right size fittings or barbs or whatever you decide.
