total WC n00b!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am putting parts together for my new SB build. I would like to try water cooling, but have zero experience in the matter... I have decided to get a danger den torture rack as my case http://www.dangerden.com/store/dd-torture-rack.html and looking to pair it with this water cooling set up http://www.dangerden.com/store/perfo...-radiator.html .

I wanted to make sure this would be everything I need to water cool my CPU.

If I plan to add my GPU later, would this pump/rad be able to handle it (Flow Max - 800 Liters/hour (211.3 gallons/hour))? Or would I have to upgrade parts later along with the GPU block obviously?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Wow. That kit from DD is WAY overpriced for what you get imo. Since this is your first time delving into water cooling, I'd suggest an XSPC RX360 kit. (360 > 240 if you ever plan on upgrading to GPU water cooling in the future.) http://jab-tech.com/XSPC-Rasa-750-RX...t-pr-4780.html

With regards to cases, there are so many good cases out there that it's really up to what you're looking for. Coolermaster/Mountain Mods (more extreme kits)/Corsair/Case Labs (Similar to MM)/Lian Li/Silverstone and many others make excellent cases that fit the purpose of water cooling. I'd definitely do some research before buying to see if a particular case will fit your needs.

Good luck!
