Koolance Res/Pump combo?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Anyone know anything about this?

http://www.koolance.com/water-coolin...product_id=800

I want to cool my 2600k and my Radeon 6990 (when the block becomes available). was looking into getting the RX360 with an EK cpu block and a block for my 6990 (again, when it is released). I just like the controls/temps in a drive bay, with visible liquid level and my theme inside will be blue so it kind of fits.

Any suggestions at all? I have never built a pc, or watercooled, and my parts are starting to arrive tomorrow.

Not sure about that res/pump/controller combo. As for parts the RX360 offers great performance and a good price, I use it in my loop. EK blocks are awesome and some of the bets imo.

As far as putting together the PC. Take your time read the instructions. Never force anything into place you can use pressure but do not over do it and risk breaking/cracking something. If you can find a TIM remover and buy some Thermal Paste Arctic Silver 5 is good as well as some of the MX line. Here is a good guide on Thermal Paste and how to apply it its 12 pages long with a lot of good info (http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/coo...e-roundup.html).

Typically this may just be me but I always test my parts outside the case before I hook them up into the case. So I test my psu alone. Then hook my psu into the mobo power it on and check all the status lights to make sure the board is not D.O.A. Then put the processor and ram in do another test to make sure any of those are not D.O.A. as well. That can be hard if your mobo does not come with led boot indicators (I love the Premium boards by ASUS for this reason). Once all of that is good to go plug in my Vid card and hook everything up - hdd/cd/dvd/bluray drives and get into the Bios to make sure everything is reading correctly unhook the system and begin the case install. Also when you are testing this make sure the mobo is on the antistatic bag/surface or non conductive surface. so you don't short anything out.

Also always feel free to ask questions and look at the sticks/post anywhere on these forums they are extremely helpful and so are the people. The last thing you want to do on your first build is fry/damage something with out searching/asking for an answer first.

Also did you order any WC parts/kits yet?

Best of luck on your first build!

you could use that a rad and a block of course

few things
first the rad
swiftech rads are the best bang for the buck in rads
skinnelabs has a full review and overall swiftech takes it for cost/cooling

for a cpu only loop a 240mm rad is pleanty if you think you might expand later I would go on and get the 360mm rad (swiftech mcr320qp)
but a 240 is more than enough for a cpu only block

not that res/pump combo looks like but the pump in it isnt much to talk about at all. your better off geting either a 655b or a 35x pump and a single bay res or a 150ml-280ml internal res
swiftech makes a microres that is great for small loops I keep one just incase for a backup if I ever need a res quick.

if rasa release a mounting kit or a rasa block for sandy bridge go with it
rasa is a great block for a very resonable price

finally get yourself a silver kill koil to go in the res it will keep algee from growing in your loop, I also add 2-4 drops of pk-nuke to my loop when I fill it up also and use ONLY distilled water
dont add anything else (NO coloring) (NO DYE)
it can seperate from the water and gum up your block

i ordered nothing yet. but i am very excited to start ordering. I want to stay with a blue theme, Asus P8 mobo, G.Skill blue ram, all black case inside (will shortly purchase HAF X). As far as WC is concerned, the RX360 for a rad up top, and buy the EK supreme HF block (one of the several available, not sure which), buy enough compression fittings, and either UV blue tubing or clear tubing with a UV Blue dyed coolant. I also want a flow meter somewhere in there, and a way to monitor fanspeeds and pre/post rad coolant temp. I'm ready to order now, just want to do the right research and hear from enough people that I'm on the right track.

Stick to UV blue tubing to avoid any gunking that may occur to the dye separating from the water.

As far as parts go:
Blocks EKs are great
Pump 655 is a great quiet pump
Res anything that you think will look best in the loop
