looking to watercool for the first time. help!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
ok so im planning on switching to watercooling but since this will be my first time i have no idea what brands/models are good and whats not. so i would like for one of you kind people to suggest me all the parts i would need for a crazy watercooling system in exchange for rep. my budget is $200-$400 and size is not an issue. i would, however, like things to go nicely with my white nzxt phantom (ie. white/black tubing)

this is the best beginners kit out there. If you want to add a gpu block you can.

http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...-rs-rx120.html (look here for performance info)

If you want white or black tubing just get some 1/2" tubing from somewhere and youll be set to get epic temps on your cpu.

The kit comes with everything you need to start watercooling so if you dont need a gpu block or want non clear tubing you are set with the kit by itself.

655 vario for the pump
Heatkiller CPU block
I think ek make a nice block for that motherboard if you choose
Feser, xspc, Thermochill, are good rads
Xspc and danger den make good full cover waterblocks for gpu

or you could get the parts and build your own. If you are new make sure you double check with ppl here to make sure you have all the parts. Also I forgot to mention with the rasa rx360 I posted above you need a kill coil.
