First custom loop HELP! - Page 3

post #21 of 32
If you're going to put blocks on the motherboard I would put on what your budget allows, but really mosfets are critical if you're going to be over-volting (likely you will for a high oc) and then NB/SB. The added cooling will be good and mean you won't have to worry about reliability or airflow issues. I don't have experience with the processor and its potential, but the board will be more stable and capable by being better cooled. That doesn't mean it will be magical; like the CPU, it may have walls for OC potential, I just don't know enough about it to tell you where those will be. Coolingwise you'll be in great shape though.

WOW PLEASE know about the subject before jumping to conclusions. Headache? ROFL, too stressful to put a tube on a barb? Changing the water once a year? leak testing for 5-24hrs? please go read about custom loops and sealed loops before commenting.

OP: Get the Rasa, my 955 at 3.8ghz 1.4v does not go above 42c where as my H50 lapped would hit that at 3.4 with stock volts.

You'll need to ask about whether you can switch the barbs on that NB block. It appears that it comes with compressions pre-installed, which are stated to be compatible with 1/4x3/8" tubing, you can always use that size tubing and then add in a pair of 1/4" to 1/2" adapters. Most European WC tends to (or did when that block was new) run smaller tubing diameters compared US/NA loops... not really sure why tbh.

No, you will need to order 2 more as the 6 that come with it will be used by the rad,pump,cpu block.

EDIT- Just looked at it again and I'm honestly not sure if those fittings are for show or come with it.

Forgive me if I am jumping to conclusions, but it sounds like there is a little confusion surrounding your northbridge speed/temps. The motherboard's northbridge has nothing to do with the "northbridge" that you are overclocking. When you overclock your memory controller (called CPU-NB because it is part of the CPU), you aren't actually overclocking the physical northbridge chip on your motherboard. So overclocking the CPU-NB actually raises the CPU temps, not the motherboards northbridge temp. Hope this helps.

Oh which temp does Speedfan read? I thought it was System/CPU/NB(motherboard)

For now I'm gonna just go with the RASA240 kit. $156 Shipped with corrosion blocker and KillCoils

Later on I will add the Chipset blocks, because it looks like it will be well over $150 for all 3 and needed barbs. MB water blocks

The 240 will be great, you won't regret it.

So I went ahead and ordered the RS360 kit and the motherboard chipset water blocks...Later on when I get a better GPU I will put in the loop, so I figured I'd go ahead and get the bigger radiator.

But the goal for now is ~4.5Ghz CPU and 3.2Ghz NB
