Newbie looking to jump in!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I'm currently building a new computer and about 1.1 seconds into it I decided I really wanted to try water cooling. So, I've been reading like crazy and such and I can't really seem to figure out what I will need for my build that isn't either stupidly overkill or not quite enough.

My build is as follows (subject to some change but not much.)

Motherboard

Processor

Power Supply

Video Card [Tri-SLI]

Hard Drives x 6 [Raid 10]


Memory

Case

So what I need is for someone with more experience to lend some advice on what all I will need to cool my CPU and perhaps my GPUs as well. As I said I'm new to this so I apologize if I ask some stupid questions!

Wow, thats quite a list thank you! I wonder if I would be able to mount everything internally in that case or would I have to have an external setup as well?

The 360 will fit up top but you would have to mount the 240 outside or remove the hdd cage and put the 240 at the bottom.

Ah ok thanks a bunch. Is there any cases you're aware of where I could pull this off without externally mounting anything? If not it's not too big a deal but I'd like to keep the finished result tidy if possible

Mountain Mods wouldnt have to mod anything, huge cases.

The Corsair 800D is huge but you wont fit that 240 in without modding the bottom compartment.

Im sure there are more I just cant think of them right now.

That is a beautiful build. If I'm not mistaken is that a 360mm and a 120 in the back?

- I'm still drooling over the beauty of it -

That's correct. You could replace the 240 and get a 120 instead and it'll look like that.
