post #1 of 78
Thread Starter 
Hi people just do a quick look over my parts
Tell me if I should change or improve any of the parts i am buying or if it is all perfect
https://www.aquatuning.at/shopping_c...31e8b4ad16ea5a

And another important thing is the coolant....I have heard many people saying don´t use dyed water as it will cluster and stuff and damager your blocks etc....what do you think? am I safe with this dye and the parts I picked? has anyone got some experience with dyed water ? cause not everybody seems to have problems with it some have it 2 years without probs ...so pl recommend me a good one or tell me if I am gonna be fine with this one

i dont know much about AC rads and blocks but ditch the coolant and get some distilled water and a kill coil or pt nuke. (i wont be the first one to say this)

tubing is good, pump is good, if you really want green get the green primochill tubing

The CPU Block is from Aquacomputer Cuplex Kryos Pro is made by a german company.
Currently this is the best performing block on the market

I would like some feedback on the phobya G changer radiator...is that one enough? or should I spend a little more for a better rad?


And yeah nearly everbody recommended me distilled water and pt nuke but the green looks soooo cool I mean is their a reason for those people to have problems with dyes? maybe certain watercooling parts or tubing cause these problemst? I woud love for someone with some experience on that matter to give me some advice...is the primochill dye ok to use with my parts?

thx for the answers

But could you be a little more specific?^^
Good is such missinterpretable word

I mean how does the rad perform in comparison with the high end stuff?
Could you possibly rank it?

As for the block..yeah you won´t need to rank it I already know that it is Number 1# for sure

And the dyed water thing...hmmm I am really concerned of cluster building and block destruction
But why are there still people using for years and recommending it ?
I want UV effect and I am really afraid that UV tubing won´t have the same strong UV effect as you would get with UV dyed water..what do you think?

Do not use any additives get color tubing and kill coil or silver fittings.

1.)Ok ok thats one to many telling me not to use it^^ I will use UV tubing..but do you think UV tubing will have the same effect as dye?
Ok pt-nuke is not available at aquatuning.de my retailer...and I live in Germany...any alternatives to distilled water with pt-nuke?

2.)Ok I got the best radiator and block available on the market right now especially the block is great^^ (beat the Apogee XT and EK Supreme HF by 1 degree)...please give me a little more feedback on the radiator and tubing here my parts again : https://www.aquatuning.at/shopping_c...31e8b4ad16ea5a

3.)Because I will use half inch tubing compression fittings won´t fit on the CPU waterblock and res ...that is why I will use 45 degree half inch compression fittings...so a lot of people advised me not to do so as the 45 degree fittings restrict waterflow...what do you say? will I be good with those or should I just use half inch barbs that will fit without use of 45 degree ?

UV tube is not quite what the dye will give you (in terms of glow), BUT, it will not give you the long term headache that the goo will. Dyes have a tendency to coat edges and sharp angles on your bits after awhile, and can be a chore to clean.

Unless you plan to go below freezing, anything other than distilled water and a silver coil or dash of biocide may hurt more than help. I agree though, that it does not look as "cool", so theres a trade-off on way or the other.

I really like the phobya G-changer rads, have a 1.2 black 360 myself for my latest build, not quite the most efficient but certainly 1.0+ are very close to performing between an XSPC and BlackIce GTX Most the reviews I have seen tend to suggest a medium speed fan setup, with too low a fan speed resulting in poor performance, and too high diminished returns. Bang for the buck/ considering features, its a great buy for the money. Its also the cheapest 360 rad with a bleeder screw to my knowledge.

In terms of fittings, I "personally" like simple silver barbs with springs clips. Theres not much data in the way of how different fittings or rotaries affect water flow other than to say, there is an effect. Like any resistance in a closed circuit this effect is cumulative, so total resistance, is the resistance offered by each component added up. 1 or 2 angle fittings, probably wont make or break a good OC, 5-6 angle fittings could slow things up enough to notice "something". Theres no law saying all your fittings much be of one type or another, so I say, its whatever works the best/easiest to install.
