NZXT Phantom Water Cooling Advice

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

As stated, I have the NZXT Phantom case and want to put in a water cooling system. At the moment it will be CPU only but I might be thinking of expanding this in the future to GPU also. I've had a look at the stickies and come up with the following:

Water block - EK Supreme HF
Radiator - XSPC RX240
Fans - Gentle Typhoons
Tubing - Tygon 7/16" tubes on 1/2" barbs
Pump - Swiftech MCP655
Reservoir - Currently reviewing...

This is my first set up but I'm not being tied down to a low budget so want performance in mind. I'm just a bit confused on which reservoir to get/is best? Any ideas?

Any suggestions/tips would be of great help thanks

get you a rasa 240 kit and be happy
you can spend a little more and goto a 360mm rad but if your doing cpu only its overkill

Have decided that distilled water would still be best for me, I'll be getting Green/Green UV tubing instead. Have also found Clear/Blue UV tubing which is potentially but I'll report back.

Any advice on reservoirs?

I recommend the rs 240 kit from XSPC. Also stick with distilled water. Get some UV tubing instead.
