Where are you shopping for your stuff?

Performance-PC's have a great range. Some things are a tad pricey.
FrozenCPU is also alright.
Jab-tech is good.
Koolertek has low prices but a limited range.
Sidewinders also have great prices.

Few ?'s

-Which PT nuke should I get, the regular or PHN?

-Do I need the nuke and silver coil or just one of them?

-What size/type tubes do I get for the kryos XT?

Edit: Thanks for the links, half of those are new to me!

Well, real nuke is from Petra's Tech Shop, Hence the name, PT nuke. A silver kill coil will do. I usually see people do one or the other, they serve the same purpose.

You need fittings to go on your blocks, then tubing over blocks.

Fittings should be G1/4 threaded. That is important. Then, you have to look at your tubing. It should have two things, ID and OD. ID is inner diameter and OD is outer. 1/2"ID and 3/4"OD is popular and a good size to allow good flow. ID matters for barb fittings, becuase that's all they touch, but the barbs you get should have the specified OD in their name. If you're getting compression fittings, you need to look at both ID and OD to make sure they fit, as they have a "collar" that works as a clamp. Compression. Barb.

PHN for distilled water only loop. And you just need one, not both.

Thanks, any reason I shouldn't get a quad radiator? lol

If I decide to cool the GPU(s) and/or mosfets later, I'll probably run another loop, or should I?
post #16 of 37
Don't read "too" much into the people that say red coolant WILL gunk up your loop, it's not guaranteed to do it...it just might, some people have no problems what so ever with coloured coolant. But if you want to play it safe, get coloured tubing, but get more than you need to, because errors can and probably will happen.

None what-so-ever. Go for it

What is this going to be in?

If you're putting it in that 800D then some modding is needed. Heck, if you're gonna go all the way, get a 240 as well and put it down the bottom, why not?

If you're going to get a larger loop, go for the MCP355, it has better head pressure so it it better suited for longer loops (Like yours may be, CPU, GPU, Mosfets/Chipset and a couple of rads).

As you seem to be filling out your OP with parts, I'll recommend some for the ones with no parts filled in yet.

Pump- MCP655. The 355 has a higher head pressure, which is better suited for longer loops but it's quite loud. It actually says on the product page of many sites that it's not recommended to users looking for a silent solution, that comes from swiftech themselves.
Res- XSPC Acrylic Dual 5.25" Bay Reservoir for Laing D5. Fits the MCP655, Looks good (same styling as the 800D, brushed aluminium).
Fans- Gentle Typhoons, AP-14's are good. They have an outstanding noise to CFM ratio and a great static pressure. Some of the best fans for rads out. The AP-14's spin at 1500RPM (1,450 actually IIRC.) and the RX series of radiators loves 1500RPM.

Thanks, I've only ordered the CPU block so far.

Sounds like I'll go with the 655 for the pump, because of sound. I want the option to make it quiet, and to have it a little louder from time to time if I need some more muscle.

As for fans, are the typhoons not able to have an adjustable speed? Is it just one set speed? I'd rather have fans I can adjust if possible.

Fan controller

Could just get 1850RPM versions and a fan controller, not many fans have build on controllers. I like simple controllers like the Zalman ZM-FC1. There's some with screens so display different things like temperately and fan RPM's.

Oh, and there's also a MCP655 with speed control, it's a few extra bucks though. Just in case you want a little bit more control.

EDIT: I remembered the name of the speed control pump.

MCP655-B. Simple, really.
