EK's come with pads, you just have to cut them to fit the parts (IC/VRM/etc) that are illustrated in their...uhh...'installation manual' (more like 11" x 14" sheet of paper)

I find the mcp655 pump that i own silent enough at the speed it needs to run (probably @ 2,5 speed for a cpu and gpu., with the sidepanel on I can't hear it at all)

The R4's I will use for the radiator are quite loud on high speed (but then again the push a lot air too), and are hardly audible at half speed (in which the MCR320 shines, since that rad is good for low speed fans)

The fan of the PSU I own broke.., well the bearings did, replaced it with a R4


If I researched right and got the right info the above should be correct.

It does not matter what order you set up your loop in, just ensure the reservoir is higher up in the case than the pump or you will burn it out.

You can set the fan speeds to what you want with a fan controller. Want the temperatures to go down? Turn them up. If they're at an acceptable temperature then turn the fans down until you reach your desired temperature/noise combination.

In my opinion, it's worth sacrificing a few degrees to have a quiet system. For example, if at full fan speed your CPU temperature at load is 50C and when turning the fans down to a quiet level the CPU temperature at load is 53C, it's a worthwhile sacrifice since this temperature is by no means high and you have a quiet PC to-boot.
Ah, so all I need is TIM
Good thing i still have that

And yeah, the 2 fan controllers that are in my pc will be used for the radiator fans as well, just to adjust it so it's not loud, and good temps

Scissors will do to cut the pads? or do i need a sharp knife or something.

Oh, I forgot to ask, does the block come with 2 1/4" plugs too?


And the Res is larger than my case , and the pump is on the bottom, so that wont be a problem

It doesnt come with any Plugs, so you would need to buy 2 of those too.

I Cut the Thermal pads with a scissor, on my block. Alot easier to meassure how wide I needed them that way since I could just take the big pad next to the Ram, For example, and then place the scissor next to it, Then lift it up and cut the Pad.

Had no problem cutting with a normal Paper scissor

If you buy an EK water block it does come with two plugs. I have one sitting on my lap infact, I just checked and they're included with the screws and such.

Maybe they started including them after you bought yours, pangeltveit, I don't know, but they're definitely here.

EK blocks include everything you need, less:

TIM
Scissors to cut pads
SLI link (unless you order one along with it)
Fittings (same as link)

All the screws/spacers/pads/plugs and an allen key are included.

Oh, I forgot to add you will need a Torx T6 driver if you plan on adding a backplate. Home Depot sells a little kit for $6 here.

It's a modders best friend...gotten me out of countless binds. You can use it to crack open an Xbox 360 (gpu/cpu block) as well.

I might add a backplate sometime later, and I own like 4 allen key sets
Thanks for the info though
