Is Water Cooling ALWAYS expensive OR I MADE it expensive? - Page 3

post #21 of 32
A decent WC is always expensive i spent around 450€ (around 600$) with mine though i have CPU and Both card's WCed in the end its worth it.

Like everyone said before go with those RASA kits then you can add gpu blocks if you like. Use distiled water cheaper and better performance. I personally dont like coils they look very bad get a good tube and go for 45º fittings use some 90º if they simplify the loop.

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. 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.
HAF X is bigger?

in the first place i really want to buy this case

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/257230 but i am afraid a wont have enough room to install the RX360 rad..

oh i been on the watercoolinguk.co.uk they got some PT Nuke so i am fine on that.. but do i just add few drop in the water like the fish tank then done?

also the I just found out there are 2 EK HF

EK-Supreme HighFlow CPU Block - Plexi 775/1156/1366/AM3

EK-Supreme HighFlow CPU Block - Acetal 775/1156/1366/AM3

expect the look.. are they the same?

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
Laing DDC Pump
2x XSPC X20 Single Core Graphics Card Blocks
XSPC Laing DDC Reservoir Top
About £80 on 11 Fans
£25 For The Fittings
£20-25 For The Fluid And Tube
11FANS... that is a very big case... are you clean it often?

i am not very ensure what is the loop like like yet as i have not really design which case i am going to buy... but by most changes i would like to keep the rad install in the top of the case..

btw if i install the water loop.. is there any change to upgrade it? because the tube is full of water already...

The Cosmos S has dust filters on everything so I only have to clean it out every 3 weeks and even then it's not that bad so it only tasks 10 minutes to do.

My fans are low RPM though so faster fans will pull more dust in.

Cazher : If you want to upgrade the loop then just drain the fluid, Replace what parts you want and then fill her back up. simple

Draining the loop is not as bad as it sounds, Takes me 10 minutes

And stay away from the HAF series of cases.

Get a Cooler Master Cosmos S case from Ebuyer, Best bang for buck water cooling case there is in the UK

Haf X us really an air cooler's case, go for the cosmos, really.
You can do the job much cheaper. And I've used watercoolinguk, they deliver fast and are great on prices. Highly recommended. I got the half of my loop that I didn't get used from OCN there.

Plexi vs acetal is just the material on the top, where EK is concerned, plexi is transparent and acetal is black, usually anyway. There's no performance difference, just the looks.

You made it expensive.

like many other people, you are using and abusing bitspower stuff, its DEADLY OVERPRICED.

I use nickel plated brass barbs/fittings/90degs in my system, looks great (not as good as bits though), and I spent like 20€ for let me count... 2+2+2+3, and 4... 9 fittings and 4 9degs.


God damn bitspower stuff. I've seen $16 for a 90deg barb. What the...? That thing is around 3€ in your local hardware store.

Btw, why getting orange fluid and UV blue tubing? just get UV orange tubing O.o

Did you notice that the EKwb chipset cooler is for Gigabyte boards? It might not fit O.o

Also, get 3 1850RPM GentleTyphoons instead of Antec case fans. Pushpull doesn't make a difference unless you use really high pressure fans (Deltas, Ultra Kazes...)

Stay away from bitspower.
Besides that. the difference between the two blocks is that one is plated with acetal, the other with nickel. Are you using other blocks in your loop, eg GPU? if so, you need to use the same metal for all blocks or you'll see a little corrosion.
I'm not sure that the 360 rad will fit in the case. I do remember, though, that a memberD. here modded the case heavily to make it fit. Consider an 800

They all usually have some offers on and nearly all of them offer next day delivery, all of these companys have also been alot nicer to deal with in my experience than eBuyer.

Your loop isnt that expensive but yeah, when you add in a case it does bump the price up.

When you said "modded" you do give me a new idea..

i had been doing the measurement these days..

if i re-move the case top and replace with this..

http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/p/WC...Black_984.html

then i could save like a 100.. =)

and the money i saved allow me to get a ek hf from the beginning =)
and for the metal i just go for Plexi.. cos it look nicer =)
