Moving to water cooling - What to get? - noob

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I'm 100% noob at water cooling setup's.... The closest thing I have to water cooling is a "CoolIT Vantage A.L.C" which is just not good enough to cool my 4.0GHz overclock as it's hitting 60C+ now due to warmer tempatures.

I'm not sure what to get all together, So can someone help me set up a list on

www.ebuyer.com or www.scan.co.uk

My budget is around £180 if possible. Don't want something extremely expensive...

I also have a Coolermaster Storm Scout case, so I woud have to drill holes at the back on my case and have a 240 or 320 radiator hanging out the back somewhere.

+1 rep to anyone that help's me smile.gif

I'd say that Scan and ebuyer aren't good places to shop for watercooling here in the UK.

Try watercoolinguk, chilledpc and specialtech instead.

They have a much higher variety of components, and are generally more competitive on price.

With regards to the actual system, I'm sure plenty of other members can come in and suggest things, I'm still rocking the high end air cooling frown.gif


As an aside, for any members looking to spec him up a build, try the sites I mentioned above, as they are pretty much the best available to us in the UK I think

What do you think about this?

http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/Swiftech-H20-220-Apex-Ultima-XT-CPU-Liquid-Cooling-Kit_1772.html

It would have to hand outside my case somewhere though, and will need to drill holes at the back of my case for pipe access.

Looks easy enough though, comes with everything that's needed and save's "noobs" like me finding all the fittings and the right equipment etc....

Watercooling UK seem to have a good rep, and EK (europe as a most) EK is very 'designer' in their creation, they can kit the whole lot out.

EDIT: £200???

Do a full custom waterloop setup bro. do some market research, learn about it.

I could make my budget £200 I guees, but I have no clue on the fittings and hose sizes etc.... I guees I need a full kit with everything included and I can slowly learn from that and then I can get something custom in the future.

That's a good kit- the XT is the #2-3 block on the market right now behind the EK Supreme HF and maybe a Heatkiller 3.0.
A 220 rad will do well for you and that D5 pump (MCP655) is a great buy. Overall that's a good selection of top notch parts.

Edit: For a premade kit, there really aren't any cheap components here, everything is high end, and frankly the sort of things I'd recommend if you were buying them individually.

Meh.. :/ Can anyone set me up a list of what to buy? If possible? if not, I will have to go with one of these kit's, need something good enough to cool 4.0GHz @ 1.5V, which is already hitting 60C+ with my current cooler due to warm tempature's inside my house

What? confused.gif Also, are you planning to go CPU and GPU? The 220 will handle either the GPU or CPU, but I wouldn't put them both on it. Keep in mind too that a GPU block will run you $50-100 more. The 655 pump and XT will last you for a long time though, and the pump could certainly handle a future upgrade to more blocks and rads. Overall I'd say that kit is a good place to start...

for that budget you might want to try this out. It works great. Better than any air cooler. Especially at your budget I think its an ideal choice. You could probably afford something better but I think this is a good start.
