Future Water Cooling Setup(In Progress) - Comments and Suggestions Please

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Let me introduce myself seeing how I'm new here and all. I've been working with computers sense I was 8 years old, currently a freshman at University of Central Arkansas - Computer Science Major, I game when I can find time (damn college studies lol) and I'm fairly new to water cooling setups but I've been watching the videos and guide posts that are on the forums.

I've been doing research the past couple of days on what parts to get and how I should do my loops. Feel free to call me a noob or what you please becuase I know I'm one when it comes to this... For the moment ;p lol.

btw, noise isn't a big issue to me. I'd like the setup to be quiet but its not a major thing, that's what headsets and 5.1 surround sound systems are made for, right? lol

Money isn't really in issue. Just not gonna spend a large amount on one part unless it's a BAMF lol

Part List
Case: HAF X RC-942
Fans: Delta AFB1212VHE or FAN-12038HBK-184(Koolance)
Rad: Black Ice GTX 240 Radiator
Fan Controller: Lamptron FC Touch or Lamptron 30W
Res/Pump Combo: RP-452X2 Dual(Koolance)
Filter: NS-FLTR01(Koolance)
Coolant: Distilled Water + Nuke
CPU Block: Enzotech LUNA Rev.A CPU
GPU Block: VID-NX460 (GeForce GTX 460)(Koolance)
NB & SB Block: CHC-122 (MB)(Koolance)
Tubing: Blue UV-Reactive PVC, [ID: 13mm (1/2"); OD: 16mm (5/8")] (Koolance)

The reason why I have two fans and fan controllers listed is becuase I haven't decided yet and would like input. I'm aware that the koolance fan is going to be loud, that is why I'm for sure getting a controller, just don't know which one yet. Plus, I want to be able to max out the fans for intense usage then turn them down for little to moderate usage.

Total Parts
Fans: 4
Rad: 2
Fan Controller: 1
Res/Pump: 1/2
Filter: 2
CPU Block: 1
GPU Block: 2
NB & SB Block: 2(One for NB and One for SB)

I'm aware that most of the time that water cooling the NB and SB is almost useless but the P5N-D(current mobo) has a NB that runs hot, could almost cook an egg on the thing ;p

I've attached the pictures that show the idea I have for my loops and the placement of the Res/Pump, Controller and Drive.

The reason I have two rads is I would like to keep CPU and GPU related cooling separate. In the future I want to do a Tri SLI so I would like to cool it on a separate loop so if needed I can add a 120mm to be able to handle the third card.
I've had my share of bad future planning with computers, so I've learned from my mistakes.

I have been looking at water cooling my RAM but I haven't been to successful at find posts that are related to water cooling RAM and if its worth it. Comments?

I'm open to suggestions, comments and questions.
If I missed anything, please let me know.
Sorry for the super long post, just wanted to get all the details out in the open.

Thank You,
Vince aka Madog

btw, Thank You for the great forums and even better environment.

Yeah just go with a single RX360 in push.

That's what I'm using (except in pull) and I have about a 40(ish, take a few)* delta with a 4.3GHz 920 and 5970 @ 5870 speeds.

Everything else looks good.

Use just one 360 to cool CPU, 2 GPUs, NB and SB? Wouldn't the temp get a little warm after the loop went around CPU and first GPU?

or you can go rx360 and rx240, or any thicker 360 and 240 rad. or if you can fit 480 rad up there
