Is Water Cooling ALWAYS expensive OR I MADE it expensive? - Page 2

post #11 of 32
Gentle typhoons are a bit overpriced and their static pressure isn't that good tbh (although better than many cheap fans). If you have room get some 38mm panaflos or something.

3 good fans is better than 6 cheap ones biggrin.gif.

I would go for the XSPC kit and then just add onto that. The rasa block is one of the best, and the rads are pretty much amazing. You could get the RX360 kit for like 200USD and then buy a good pump and res for it for like 100. then you have a kick butt cpu loop.

I don't think its too bad. Especially considering you're adding a case. Most estimates that I've noticed don't generally include a case. (I've been doing a TON of research the last 3 weeks to set my gear up.)

Hell I just spent 800+ US on my setup. But I bought a lot of extra "just in case stuff."

But look at it this way... There are parts for ANY price range. If you want to lower your price, pick less expensive parts.

You can also go check out the marketplace. I bought MCP350 pumpss for $35 bucks which normally would have cost $70. I also bought my motherboard waterblock for $100 when its normally 150 with shipping.

Marketplace is actually pretty stellar IMO.

edit: Also I've read somewhere that using push pull on a rad doesn't make an incredible difference. If you have the fans to spare..by all means.

I cant find RS360 kits, in stead of that I found a RX360 kits in ebay..

Is the performance make any different between them?

Mixing UV Orange fluid with UV Blue tubing? Is this intentional?
The Black ICE Rads are not as good as the RX360.
Chipset cooling isn't a need, the stock coolers are fine.
I'd go with regular barbs that fit your size tubing, and use clamps. Less expensive.
Gentle Typhoon fans are one of the best for the RX360.
A Better pump is the MCP 655.

Again, just my take on this. Should lower the price. Also, if you are going to spend that much, I'm not sure if they make waterblocks for the GT 430.

EDIT: Got ninja'd. Ttaylor is correct.

I just found a RX360 kits by mistake.. so i am safe? XD

The only MCP655 i can found is used...

but there are few Laing DDC-pump..

are they any good?

The GT430 I am gonna to change it into a better ati card so the water is not going there..

also nzxt LX fan controller isn't really worth the money IMO

But do i need to buy something to monitor the tmp in the loop?

okat.. so far new set up:

£105.66 Coolermaster HAF 932 Full Tower Case - High Air Flow Design - No PSU
£199.99 XSPC Rasa 750 RX360 WaterCooling Kit
£13.99*3 Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1850RPM 120mm 12cm quiet case fan

Total: £347.62..

Maybe few more £ for the water... so estimating about £350~355 something like that..
if i change the cpu block into EK Water Blocks EK-Supreme HF then shall + up almost £400..

Well that save me like £100 already...

thx for the help =)

btw what is sliver killer coil for?

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Pulse-Modding-Silver-Kill-Coil-Anti-Algae-/230586939980?pt=Computing_ComputerComponents_Fans_Heatsinks_SR&hash=item35b00d7a4c

I think i miss this line...

Mixing UV Orange fluid with UV Blue tubing just because i hope it can turn into purple... =)

Cazher, great! The kill coil is for killing any bacteria or algae in your loop to protect from corrosion or blockage. I'd go with http://www.petrastechshop.com/pepcobi1.html PT Nuke. Not sure if you will go with it, as shipping is pricey. If not, just stick a kill coil in your res. The Rasa kit you selected is GREAT for a loop for that price. If I were you I'd see if EK makes a waterblock for the GT 430, if it's reference just like the 480 then get it. You can then overclock your GPU. smile.gif If you do, make sure to buy the extra barbs and clamps.

Have you looked into the HAF X? It's a bit roomier than the 932, and has a full window.

The waterblock for the CPU that comes with the kit is good, but the EK HF block is a bit better. Your choice, really.

EDIT: PT Nuke is shipped to the US and Canada only. Look on ebay for some, or just go with the kill coil. PT Nuke is a bit better.

Water cooling isn't a cheap hobby. wink.gif
post #18 of 32
Use Watercooling UK to get the parts.

And swap the ugly crappy HAF case for a Cooler Master Cosmos S, Even the HAF X is more expensive then the Cosmos S as well as being smaller and uglier.

My loop was around £280 and I cooler EVERYTHING but my motherboard chipset.

XSPC Dela V3 CPU Block
Thermochil PA 120.3

£20-25 For The Fluid And Tube

Almighty, what's your usual dust intake? How often do you need to clean that? 11 fans, yikes.
