I need advice for a good watercooling system/build - Page 3

well lets say $200 for both gpu waterblocks (price on frozencpu), $50-$80 for cpu block. $100-$120 for radiators,
$80-$125 for pump, $35-$50 for reservoir, $50 for tubing, clamps, and other accessories = $515-$545 for a good setup. It might be a little more than that. I would say you could do a good build for under $600 if you really put some thought into it.

edit: oh you'll also need fans so add in some for that. As for rads, I would say you should get at least a 360 rad and 120 rad for this loop. a 360 and 240 would be even better but I'm not sure if you could fit both internally in the case. Best case would be a quad rad, but I seriously doubt that will fit.

i think i might set aside gpu blocks for now, since i might sell the videocards i have and get 100% identical pair of whatever i think of getting. i could do that right? cpu build for now and maybe extend with gpu's it in the future?

This is kinda along the lines of what I did. Works your first loop cpu only once you get the hang of it add the gpu blocks in and you can always add/change parts if you don't like the performance/look or something.

I would highly recommend that. CPU gains a lot more from liquid cooling than GPUs anyway and it would save you a lot of money.

If you're buying from Frozencpu, don't forget the 5% discount code pcapex. I personally bought most of my stuff from Jab-tech.com as they're a little cheaper and have a 5% code of rrr. Good luck!

Frozencpu has a lot of variety but their prices are a bit high even with the 5%. make sure you check out jab-tech, silicon valley computers, sidewinder computers, performance-pcs, xoxide and petras tech shop to check for better prices and some of these places also have 5% off. Also you should probably change the cpu waterblock to an ek supreme hf or rasa block as the apogee has a lot of restriction.

very true about frozencpu. I always love ordering from them though because they have great service. Plus the fact that I live 30 minutes from their warehouse and I get everything I order in 1 day helps
