Pick apart my parts list

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, this is my first post so be easy on me lol.. I have been overclocking on air for years, and decided to finally put my gear under water.

I would appreciate if anyone could pick apart my parts list and tell me where I am making mistakes and if i am using to much rad etc. (I am also trying to keep everyting internal if possible) I have been researching for about 6 months and this is what I have come up with ( i will be cooling my sig rig)

Parts:
1 XSPC RX360
2 XSPC RX120
1 MCP655
1 XSPC Acrylic Dual 5.25" Res for MCP655
1 EK Supreme-HF Full copper
1 EK Radeon HD 5870 Version 2 Acetal
? Bitspower Compression Fittings 1/2 ID 3/4 OD
? Bitspower Dual Rotary 45 Degree Compression Fittings 1/2 ID 3/4 OD

?=don't know how many i need lol
I will be getting silver killcoil

also how many feet of tubing do i need for this? will be cooling cpu and gpu on a single loop and needs to cool well during the hot summer months ( the GF doesn't like the a/c on all the time lol ) Any and All help is very much appreciated! Thank you

for the fittings if I'm still good at calculating you'll need 12.. as for straight fittings vs 45 degres that depends on you and the space you have in your case. You can probably manage your loop with only straight ones, but sometimes it may give you a longer length of tubing between two parts compared to using 45 degres fittings.

I'm on my second loop and I had some surprises with the fittings lol. proper Guesstimation of tge quantity of 45 vs straight and other types must come with experience in think..

I'm not used with the space in your case, I remember my first loop I bought 6 feet of tubing for rad, res, gpu and cpu and I had a lot of tubing left! better have more than not enough though!

Unless you are set on the full copper EK block, I would suggest getting the nickel version instead. Copper is extremely difficult to keep clean.

As for the tubing, you should probably get 10 feet. You'll probably only use about 7-8 feet, but it's always good to have extra just in case.

Other than that, you have a solid parts list.

Why do you need that much rad cooling potential? Correct me if I'm wrong but a 360 would cool your entire set up right now..

i dont understand the extra radiators either... 1 rx360 is plenty

Well, i do want to see how far I can push the cpu.

Plus I will be adding a second 5870 a few months later and i just like overkill as well lol.I just want to see small delta between idle and load with minimal fan noise. One bigger concern is summer temps easily hits 98F(~37C) int eh summer.. and the gf dosn't like to put in the a/c till late july/august )

Right now this thing sounds like a jet engine ( mainly due to psu fan running at full speed and will be replacing that as well ) come to find out ocz psu's run fan speed based on load and not temps and i am pulling around 520W from the 12v rail which is close to it's limit. i will be picking up either a seasonic X850 modular or a corsair HX850 modular.
