WC Set-Up Ordered: Do I have everything?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I'm about to order. Here is my overall order, any suggestions? My budget is 450.

Here is everything. (I might pick up 3 AP-15s later how much better performance will those give me?)
-I was going back and forth on buying this stuff until I opened prime95 and hit 85 almost 90 right away mind you hot house and window closed but still, yikes.-

Am I missing anything?

Any barbs wrong? Any better barbs?

Tubing wrong?

Anything else?








Total: ~390. I chose to get the nickle GPU block instead and the back plate (Will I have to install these at the same time, EI they use the same screws?) so that was roughly 60 bucks more. I will be picking up 3 AP-15s later.



EDIT: JUST ORDERED Just to make sure if ANYONE could go through this list and let me know if there is anything wrong or missing I would greatly appreciate it.

It looks like you're getting the copper + acetal EK blocks. I would suggest switching to Nickel + Acetal. Copper is a total pain to keep clean.

GT15s are great fans, but if you want to save some money, you can get some yate loons. They perform great and cost considerably less.

I was going to get this one.

This is the only other one that site has but it has plexi which can crack really easily and then doesn't look as good.

Also can I install a backplate on my gpu and the waterblock? Think that would look badd@$$.

This one right here?

Am getting these
http://www.jab-tech.com/Swiftech-hig...P-pr-3659.html

They will work on that GPU block for my primoflex 5/8in tubing correct?

The tubing ID, 7/16", is what matters. It will work fine with 1/2" barbs. But I'd get some of Bitspower's shining silver barbs. They look better and the O-ring inset is nice. Whatever you choose, they should work fine with the blocks.

And I agree - nickel-plated blocks are great.

That GPU block will be about 30 bucks more with shipping but I'm gonna get it instead.

Could you link me to those barbs? Also all my tubing and barbs in the list are the correct size, right?

Apparently Jab-tech doesn't have the shining silver barbs, although they do have the true silver and matte black versions. I noticed Sidewindercomputers.com has the barbs I mentioned as well as the nickel/acetal 580 block. You might compare the product and shipping costs between multiple sites, especially since you seem to require separate orders.

I have only heard tons of good things about jab tech and there shipping for two days is only 14 bucks and they have a coupon code. AND they are the only site that sells that kit. But I will buy that block from sidewinder because they have the EK black back plate too. So I can get that right now.


Also please link me to the barbs you were talking about on sidewinders and the ok barbs you say on jab tech so I can have a looksy.


Anyone had experience with them? Good bad? Performance PC better?

Only problem is with this different block and backplate plus shipping and the like the price is the same as my other setup WITHOUT the three GT AP-15 fans.

Jab-tech is good and fast like you said. Performance-pcs has a wider selection of stuff, but they do make errors. Most notibly sending me the EK LT block instead of the HF I had purchased and sending me a GTX 275 WB instead of the GTX 285 WB I ordered. Overall, not too bad though (wider selection trumps some errors, for me at least).
