High-End Watercooling Setup - Page 3

post #21 of 78
The best idea is to make up a new list from all of the places you plan on ordering. From there we can continue to tweak it.

For instance the reason I specifically stated the RX360 radiator over the BIX 360 is that the RX360 will do better with slow and medium speed fans (quiter) and the BIX 360 needs high volume/high cfm fans (very loud).


Haha you did what I asked while I was typing it.

New list really does look great. About the fittings, you do need 2 for every component (cpu, rad, reservoir, gpu, and chipset if you decide to get it). I'm honestly not sure about the MCP-655 as I believe the fittings are plastic and can't be taken off. Someone with that pump definitly needs to adress this question.

The noctua fans should compliment the new radiator great.

8 fittings is correct. Th pump has attached fittings. If you would like to spend a bit more money you can get a conversion kit for the MCP 655 that will allows you to use your own fittings and provides a more uniform look.

Right now I'm looking at around $560 (with the reservoir which is $130), and I do have to sell my Noctua NH-D14. Shouldn't I need 2 fittings per component? Or do I just need 8, Im not sure if VW TDI 02 made a mistake or if I am mistaken. Any other recommendations would be appreciated, thanks guys!
Looks good but you have 1/2" ID 3/4" OD Tubing and 1/2" ID 5/8" OD Tubing. Those won't be compatible. You will need to switch to 1/2" ID 3/4" OD Fittings:

Pump
The MCP355 will actually do a better job then the MCP655 because of the better head pressure which is much needed with restrictive loops with a lot of blocks. It will also be perfectly fine with adding a second 480 block to the loop.

Reservoir
If you do want to get the reservoir then you have to change my build since my build has a reservoir attached to the pump. All you have to do is lose the Alphacool water tank pump from my list and add in the XSPC Aftermarket Top and the Swiftech MCP355 Pump.

Fittings
The reason I only put 8 fittings into the shopping list is because the pump comes with an attached reservoir to it so you only need a total 8. You have 1 into the reservoir, 1 out of the pump, 2 for the radiator, 2 for the cpu, and 2 for the gpu for a total of 8.

If you do want to add the reservoir then you will need to add two more fittings since the pump and reservoir wont be combined.

If you do use the MCP655 it does have plastic fittings on them for 1/2" ID tubing that cannot be removed but there are some conversion kits I believe so that you can use a different size fitting.

If your wanting to cut back on price strongly consider going with barbs and worm-clamps. They are lower profile, which can be a problem with some cpu blocks.

+1 on mcp355 with top
+1 on Rx360
+1 on ek-Fc480

I have all three and like them a lot.

Unless you like the look of 1/2" tube, you can step down to 3/8" tube with no loss in performance. Tends to save a few bucks.

+1 on performance-pcs.com and sidewindercomputers.com one or the other will have the best price.

Thank you this was very helpful. I have a few final questions before I put together a final cart.

-Whats the deal with the EK Supreme HF vs. the XSPC Rasa Block. The latter is almost half the price, however I generally go for the highest end components I can afford. Has anyone owned both? I'm going to be keeping this set up for a while (upgrading here and there) and do want the best.

-In the future will once I add chipset and second GPU block. All I'll really have to add is a second rad, which can be modded at the bottom of my 800D right?


I'm going to scurry off and put together this new cart in between BC2 Vietnam matches.

The EK Supreme HF and the XSPC Rasa are the two best blocks you can buy. The EK beats the Rasa by maybe 1 degree which in reality is negligible as a result of variations in TIM application and mounting. IMO you're better off just getting the Rasa as the extra $40 isn't really worth the 1C the EK block will give you. I haven't owned both but the above information is based on side by side reviews that I've seen.

Yes you can mod the bottom to fit a 240mm radiator on the bottom. You can also fit a 120mm radiator at the top rear of the case.
