Help with first water cooling setup

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I have never ventured down the road of water cooling. I purchased a H70 for my sandybridge build. I am working with an Asus sabertooth p67, 2600k, and a corsair 650d case.

I decided not to use the H70 and go with a water cooling setup. I need a little help. It says that the 650D will house 2x120 mm rads. Is that enough to cool a CPU? I dont know much about water cooling products, Iwould also like to but high quality stuff. I read alot about RASA 360.. it that recommended.

Any advice and product reccomendations are greatly appreaciated.

2x 120mm would be a 240 rad. BTW I love my RASA kit. Go for it!

For just the CPU, you'd be off to a good start with a RASA kit.

(and they are expandable iirc)

The EK Supreme HF's are great blocks. As for a pump, an MCP355/35x with an acrylic top.

Rather than buying all of the stuff separately, it is better to buy the kits that has been posted before like this:
http://www.jab-tech.com/XSPC-Rasa-75...t-pr-4779.html

This kit has everything you need except the distilled water and kill coil which can be found here:

You can find distilled water from your local grocery store.
