Possibly a first go at water cooling need some advice - Page 4

post #31 of 33
I am new to water cooling myself.I tried the smaller loop already and have had to upgrade.Try to go with the biggest kit you budget can afford.Then if needed get a bigger case or go with some external mounts for the rad.Remember you can not over cool a system but you can under cool it.Go for a kit system at first but I'm sure you will upgrade later with more blocks.I have been water cooled for 2 months now and have drained/upgraded/rerouted my rig at least 10 times.Go for the big stuff from the beginning and you will not have to upgrade as soon.

If you're getting a new case get the CM 690 II.

It's a ATX mid tower that will let you put 2x240 radiators, the 5.25" Bay res unit and your HD all internally.

The pump that comes with the RS120 kit is much weaker than the one for the RS240 kit, I wouldn't use the RS120 for anything other than a CPU.

Finally, if you did keep your current case you would not be able to put a radiator on the front intake fan. This is because radiators are mostly limited by the heat capacity of the air being sucked through them. Thus, once the air passes through one radiator it is too warm for any further cooling. If you put radiators on the front and rear fans the rear radiator would be almost useless.
