Just use distilled water and pt nuke or silver coil that it
you will have to worry about condensation to
Rasa would be a better block 3 degrees being the best which is the ek hf
No reason to cool your chipset
Check out koolertek.com
I don't think it would work out to well

The Rasa block is a better cooler than the XT and only $49.00. You don't need to cool the NB / SB unless you just like the look. Air cooling is fine for those. Do not use primoChill Ice as it will gunk up all your blocks and perform worse than distilled.

And where are you going to fit the keg?

I would do this.
-Ditch that res, it's over priced and not worth the money even if you are in love with the look.
-Get the Rasa CPU block, cheaper and it has better performance.
-Get rid of that PrimoChill coolant, go with Distilled water and Silver Kill coil/Biocide. If you want colour get coloured tubing.
-Don't use a fridge, sure, that'll give you cool temps but condensation isn't worth it, there's multiple threads that recommend against using a fridge.
-Get the XSPC pump housing for that pump that combos as a res too.
-Ditch NB/SB cooling (chipset block), there's no reason to have it.
-Get a proper rad.

OR

-XSPC RX360 kit. It's like 180$. You'll save A LOT of money. It will have great performance too.

With that money you've saved, (couple hundred bucks) you could buy a new case or something.

First thank you all for the replies.

I am looking at cool everything because I will be going for 5.0ghz stable as my daily setup.

The frig setup was to cool the fluid as cooled as possible then go into the Res. (Res. outside case so the fancy FrozenQ Res was used). Then pumped directly to the cpu then to other areas of the computer. Was hoping that would collect most of the condensation outside the case.

I do want to cool the moset and NB/SB because of the high volts that will be used to get to 5.0Ghz. So cooling it I do see as a needed item.
*Disclaimer I am not sure how much higher I need to turn-up the volts in these areas yet. This will drive if I buy these blocks*

I will change out to the RASA block.

Question what is the freezing point of distilled water with pt nuke or silver coil? Primochill freezing point -60 degrees.

I will read through the post on issues with Frig setup today.

Thank you

You will kill the fridge pretty quickly, the heat load you'll dump into it, you'd probably do better with a normal rad before putting the liquid through the fridge.

A couple of things. First you are going to kill the frige's compressor. Fridges are not designed to actively cool. They are designed to bring an insulated area down to a certain temperature and just maintain it. You are essentially putting a heater inside a minifridge. Second having tubing running through you computer with colder than air liquid is going to create condensation. Make sure you insulate all of your boards incase of drippage off the tubing or make sure you insulate your tubing.

A fridge is not a good idea for actively cooling water; there are flow-through water chillers (used a lot for soda fountains and beer dispensing) that are designed specifically for that purpose.

Only if the surface temp of the tubing is at or below the Dew point (based on room temp and humidity; look up psychrometrics). For example, with a 75*F room at 40% RH, the dew point is 48*F; so an object in the room has to be at or below 48*F for condensation to form on it, taking into account that the tubing acts as an insulator, the actual fluid can be slightly colder (maybe 40-45 *F) and you still wouldn't have any condensation.
