Watercooling parts verification

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I'm new to watercooling and I'm interested in water cooling my cpu only for the time being to ease my way into the hobby.

I'm just wondering what else I'd need to complete the loop besides fans.

You're really going for overkill here.

You could drop down to a 240mm or even a 140/120mm radiator if you are only doing CPU unless you are looking for really wicked temps (keep in mind with liquid cooling unless you use some sort of chiller, you will never ever get to ambient, never mind below it).

If you go the 120/140mm route you would need a fairly dense rad with a powerful fan.


You also could skimp a bit on the pump top and the rad here. Heck the pump itself too.


The tubing you picked has some sort of coating on it. it SHOULD be OK with silver, but don't quote me on that. I certainly wouldn't use it with any sort of coolant or additive. Are you planning on straight distilled? BTW there is also far cheaper and just as good (for the most part) tubing out there.


Your fittings do not seem to match but i could just be a wee bit tired atm.


Lastly, as a word of caution - those silver kill coils everyone has been raving about are great, BUT a lot of people have come to realize that if there is enough water in the loop and only a single coil (or worse, a coin in many peoples cases), it will only slow growth as opposed to actually stopping it. You might be wise to double up on those.



Oh... and while I mentioned that you are going overboard here... well thats OK in my book as long as you WANT to go overboard. I sure did and I love it, but I went into it KNOWING I was going overboard. Just making sure you know you can save money if you want to. That said, if you are planning on adding a GPU to the loop later, you would be fairly safe to assume you wouldn't need to upgrade the loop with a set-up like this. So it does have SOME practical benefit.

Nothing else should be required. But two things:

1. FrozenCPU is a fantastic site. And they let you modify each individual item for an additional fee. But they are also typically more expensive than others, like jab-tech.com or performancepcs.com

2. You may want to knock off that pump top, as you don't need it at all, unless your going for a certain look. You could also swap the EK HF for a XSPC rasa for less and still have the same performance. You also may want to consider a thicker Radiator than the SR2.

Other than that everything seems to be fine. Good luck with build and welcome to the world of water cooling.

I take a bit of issue with that. Their service is EXTREMELY hit or miss and they handle their products poorly (as in several acrylic WC items broken at arrival, called them about it, they checked their shelves, and a ALL THE ONES ON THEIR SHELVES WERE BROKEN TOO. yeah, no joke.) They will eventually bend if you harass them enough though... and yeah the overpriced part is true ;P.

They aren't all bad though. Their selection is unbeatable.

Oh and the rest of your points are very true.


Oh and one last thing for the OP. You need to match fans to radiators. If you dont know how please ask.

Thanks guys.

I don't mind to spend a bit more because I kind of want the best stuff within reason. I am trying to make all look nice in my 800d at the same time with performance.

I was just curious if I had all the right fittings or barbs if you will for the job. Also was wondering if I should get the rx360 rad instead if made a diffence. I'm trying to go for low rpm fans for quietness.

Also would a 360 rad be enough for the cpu and a single card set up like the 570 or my old card the 5970?

I will add another Silver coil to the mix as suggested. Also I've read that aluminum can pose a problemwithin a loop. The Reservoir is partly made of aluminum, just curious about this.

Thanks for the quick comments guys.

EDIT: I'll probably just go for the Gentle Typhoons AP-14 models with no fan controller.

If I recall, there is no aluminum in contact with the liquid. its just the fins and housing. Dont take my word on that though. If you are really worried you can get an anti-corrosive fluid or additive but beware of seperation.

GTs are great and yeah a nice fat rad cant hurt but the BI rads are also pretty top of the line if a bit older.

360 will be enough but you might not get as great of temps as say, a 480 or a dual rad setup considering the low speed fans and low density rads you are looking at for quietness. Mind you it'll still beat the pants off air cooling.

Thanks Zero.

I've added a new Shopping cart in the OP from Dazmodes for cheaper prices and no duty, as I live in Canada.

What do you guys think for the final shopping cart?

The only problem I see is that you're using regular 45 degree adapters. Since they aren't rotary you are stuck with whichever way they want to screw in.

You want to get these:

Thanks man. I'm trying to get my feet wet with watercooling and I'm not sure if I'm keeping my card long term. But as soon as I learn the ropes, I'll invest in a gpu block of some sort and even a chipset block too

Thanks. I've change the locked ones out for the ones you linked. I also added a silver coil to the mix and some nice black 24 pin, 6 pin and 8 pin cables for the psu!

$637 later, but I'm still happy

Thanks guys for your help
