Looking for experienced advice to OK my first wc

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Going to be purchasing a few items soon to make my first real WC setup. My goal is to be able to hit a stable 5.0+ clock.

Case: Corsair 800D
Fans: 7 x Scythe S-Flex-G 120mm (6 in Push/Pull on Rad, 1 additional intake/exhaust) 3 x Scyth Kaze-Maru2-M 140mm (intake/exhaust)
CPU Block: Koolance CPU-360
GPU Block: Koolance Vid-NX580
GPU Backplate: EVGA Backplate and High Flow Bracket
Pump/Res: Possibly Koolance?; Looking at a FrozenQ Reactor Core Extreme V Res, but not sure
Tubing/Fittings: Bitspower Black Compression Fittings
Additional: Distilled Water, Silver Kill Coil, PT-Nuke

My Specific Questions:

1. Should I have 3 of the rad fans (either all 3 push or all 3 pull) be slower? S-Flex-F seems like a good choice here.

2. Which radiator is the best for this case/fan setup?

3. I like the look of thinner tubing, whats the thinest recommended size that wont impede on performance?

4. Am I missing anything? Part choices seem ideal? Help w/ Res/Pump would be awesome.

1) I use 6 push pull Yate Loons on my radiator, all the same speed.
2) I use the xspc rx360, get radiator for low/medium speed fans.
3) 7/16 tubing

Whats your budget and where you buying from?

Water doesn't guarantee 5ghz fyi.

I have the fans you linked and these and the gentle typhoons I linked are MUCH MUCH quieter and push just as much, if not more air.

This rad would work perfectly for your setup.

Tubing with an ID and OD of this tubing works well with 1/2 inch barbs. Makes a leak proof seal and is small and easy to bend without kinking.

I agree, the ek gpu block would be a better choice, and if money is no object this CPU block will outperform the rasa by a small margin. But the rasa is a great choice.

I would get the rasa kit
the rasa or ek hf block are the only ones I would even think about using
the reactor res is over prices
but if you want looks and style

rasa cpu block
swiftech 320qp rad
6 fans (120mm) you choice on speed
655 pump fixed or variable speed(I run my variable wide open so does it really matter)
Koolance (RP-452x2) Dual 5.25" Reservoir for 1-2 D5 Pumps (looks awsome)
8 g1/4 1/2inch barb fittings
10foot of 1/2 inner diameter hose (you will make a mistake or two)
silver kill koil
pk-nuke (just for a little extra insurance)
distilled water (dont use any dyes or over prices cooling fluid)

now thats a look, if you want to spend real cash
if not, the rasa 360 kit is the way to go for 150.00
