1x Phobya G-Changer 360 (Art.Nr.: 35153)
1x Phobya Balancer 250 nichel nero (Art.Nr.: 45153)

Gonna costa 200 eur.
Is the most simple setup i could find and i could like.
If no negativa replies i will buy tomorrow or the day after.
Please help.

At the end in febrary 2011 i bought a lot of things, here is the list:
1x Phobya DC12-400 Pump 12V (Art.Nr.: 49071)
1x Phobya G-Changer 360 (Art.Nr.: 35153)
1x Phobya Balancer 250 nichel nero (Art.Nr.: 45153)
1x rasa waterblock
1x delta v3 xspc chipset waterblock
13/16 fittings and tube
1x Pgobya G-changer 140 rev 1.2
1 x radiator 120mm don't remember name
orange fanse , orange tubings, orange sleeves.
2 x gtx 470 waterblocks.
fanbus from LAMPTRON


The end results is this:







ok maybe is not one of the coolest pc ever, but is what i was searching for.
Now i need your help again:

Watercooling performance is bad.

Playing not so hot game the cards stays at 39 degree , the cpu goes over 60 just in stressfull syntetic benchmark. but i though i could achieve better.

i can imagine 2 problems:
1) 1 pump for 4 waterblocks and 2 rads
2) fans sucks /radiator combo is not working good

no air in the system anyway.

how could i solve?

adding another pump in serie?
buying better pump?
doing separate loop for videocards? ( i dont think so )

please help and advice is welcome.

Those parts look good. I assume you already have fans for the radiator? Also, have you considered the XSPC Rasa kits?

the rasa kit is not available in europe easily.
I like a lot 60mm thick radiator and all the rasa kit come with slimmer one
Just in the usa there was limited edition with XT radiator.

For the fans i have 3 noctua p12 fan from my cpu air cooler now. are those good?

Do you have hint on the waterblock? i see everyone speakin about the rasa block and the ek supreme HF block.
post #4 of 24
i think the rasa is 2nd or 3rd best performance behind the supreme hf full cover i think. and i have heard that noctua fans are not as good for radiators, again i have just heard those things.

i am currently running a rasa and im very happy with it haha

If you're on a budget the XSPC Rasa is your best bet. It's within 1C of the best performing blocks, is extremely non-restrictive and is very cheap.

EDIT: Also, there is the XSPC RX360 kit which comes with a thick radiator.

yes but just in usa. i can't find it in europe ( XSPC RX360 ).
And the rasa kit come with the xspc reservoir+pump integrated that i don't like as much as the tube reservoir... i'm building this even for pleasure for eyes

so , is rasa block better than heat killer 3.0 lc? it is 20 euro more expensive more or less. is this worh?

hk 3.0 lc is 36 eur , rasa is 54 eur.

I have the same tubing as you plan to get, and I'd recommend getting a bigger one... 19/13mm if possible. 13/10mm tubing is to thin and really easy to kink.
Plus fat tubing looks much better
And of course, if you get 19/13mm tubing, you have to buy 19/13mmm fittings

Yea sure... I had Scythes and wanted to replace them with Noctua p12s, bought 4 of those and got srsly dissapointed, and sold those, as some smart person said: better noisy and safe than silent and sorry

Where are you in Europe btw?
