A magnesium block would work like a Zinc block too - you can find them in any camping/outdoors store, in the fire starting section. But that might be over kill.

Or you could file down a penny (assuming that you're in the U.S.) and toss it into the reservoir. Once you get through the copper plating, pennies are 99% zinc.

Ever give any thought on adding TIM application to your thread? Its well wrote out I think IMO, but just an idea. I refer a couple friends to here to get help and seem that is what they ask the most from the guide you have provided.

Hey, I have the parts I was thinking about in my space invader build for my WC loop, the Case is a Shinobi XL window and i would prefer 140mm rads over 120s. I'd really like some input about parts and what order my loop should go in

Hi there I found all this very interesting. Can you help me with my loop, I must admit that I purchased a WC kit without knowing. I bought the Swiftech H2O-220 Edge Kit for CPU, and the Apogee XT Rev. 2 for CPU block. The kit comes with everything needed for the installation with 1 CPU only. Now I found all this thing about WC very "tasty", so I'm thinking on ordering more stuff for my WC loop, I want to add 2 7970s to the CPU loop. Now can you check my thread please if you don't mind?.

Hey guys, first time water cooler here. Just got done pricing my build. Do I have the right number of everything?
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
CPU Block
1x XSPC RayStorm - $49.95

VGA Block
2x Danger Den Maze5 - $48.95 ($97.90)

Reservoir
1x XPSC 5.25" Bay Reservoir - $29.95

Pump
1x Swiftech MCP350 - $74.95

Pump Top
1x XSPC Acetal Laing DDC Top - $20.95

Radiator
1x Black Ice GTX Xtreme 240 - $95.95

Fans
2x Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15 - $15.95 ($31.90)

Tubing
1x PrimoChill PrimoFlex PRO LRT 10 ft. - $22.95

Fittings
12x XSPC Low Profile Compression Fittings - $3.89 ($46.68)

Total = $471.18

Here's a picture of the case I have: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
7E06M.jpg

It's a Fractal Arc Midi and that pic came from their website. They market their case as being water cooling ready, so I guess that's what they are trying to show here. Does it look like the components I selected will fit?

And here's a picture of my case in its current configuration: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
FiQxk.jpg

Bear in mind that there will be a second 670 coming along soon.

Also, here are a couple alternate choices of a radiator and a reservoir that I was considering:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Alternate Reservoir
Swiftech MCRES Micro Rev. 2 - $25.95

I had a hard time deciding between this reservoir and a bay reservoir. But I have an empty bay slot, and if I bought this one, I'd have to figure out how to mount it inside my case. The goal is to not have to mod my case at all.

That said, a bay reservoir prevents me from installing a fan controller, so that makes this reservoir a little more attractive in that aspect. This is assuming that I'd even want a controller. I will only have two addition fans (the two on the radiator), so maybe I should simply plug them into a molex and have them on full blast since I've read they are very quiet.


Alternate Radiator
Black Ice Xtreme II - $59.99

The Xtreme II is a little thinner than the GTX Xtreme 240, but I'm not sure if that would matter or not.

^ I don't think a 240mm radiator will keep 2 GPUs and a CPU cool effectively.

Do you have any numbers to show that? I'm not trying to call you out or anything, I'm just genuinely interested to see some hard data regarding this.

I would think that a single, relatively thick 240 would keep everything at reasonable temps. I'm not looking for insanely cold temperatures, but if both of my GPUs stay below 70C during load (and my CPU around the same area), I'd be happy.
