About to order first loop. Pointers.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Okay, so here's the breakdown. I need suggestions for the bolded items...

1x Aquatube (brass/nickel) reservoir.
1x EK Multipoption 250 Res.
2x Temp monitors
1x MPC655 pump with Bitspower Sparkle kit
1x Shoggy sandwhich
1x Aquaero 5 Pro monitor system
1x FrozenQ CPU block
1x Aquagratix Block for 5850
1x 120mm RAD
2x 360 radiators (not sure if I should get Black Ice GT, XPSC, or Swiftech rads, since I'm doing 2 of them, wanna keep around $60-65 a piece)
1/2 ID, 3/4 OD Tygon tubing.
Bitspower fittings for tubing.

I plan to go:
EK Res > 120mm RAD >Aquatube Res > Pump > CPU > 360 RAD > GPU > 360 Rad > EK Res. Look right? Think that pump will handle that?

Thanks for your insight.

You should get a single 480 instead of a 2- 360... hmm wait.

I'm puzzled why you'd need 2- 360s and a 120 with the sig rig?

I single 360 on the roof of the 800D would be more than enough rad to cool a AMD and a 5850 I cooled two over clocked 5850s and a 920 @ 4.2 with a single Black Ice Pro which is like the bottom of the line 360 rad. and it did the job more than fine.

I would suggest a single 360 in the upper range, basically whatever you can afford and if you could afford 2 360s then you should have no problem affording a really nice single 360

I'm getting a CaseLabs M8, So i wanna fill it up, make things so cool that that a snake couldn't crawl through it .

The M8 won't fit a 480 internally. I'm also looking at upgrading either to Bulldozer or Whatever Bridge later this year, so having the gear ready will be nice, especially when I xfire the GPUs.

Could have, should have included that in the 1st post....

With that said 2x 360s will be perfect and again more than enough... but in that case if you really want it tight it will fit 3x or even 4x 360s in it

Woah there! Let's not get TOO carried away.... just YET. Believe me, I'm thinking about doing more down the road. I'll have this M8 til the day I die...

So 2x 360's would be good. Question is, which brand? I've heard decent things about Swiftech, XSPC AND Black Ice....

Sorry I was just saying

I use Black Ice... I all my builds, SR1s currently, but they are big, but I just love that I can turn the fans off and the system will stay chill, and the max my fans go is 1000RPM

For you, maybe look at the GT or Xtreme Rads for the price and performance I don't think they can be touched (sure someone will tell you otherwise)

Interesting. Awesome. Thanks for the advice. +Rep.

@ the 2800 rpm + Black Ice > Fesser > TC PA > MCR > Rasa > HWlabs
@ the 1800 rpm Black Ice > fesser > TC PA > Rasa RX > MCR > HWlabs
@ the 1400 rpm TC PA > Rasa RX > Fesser > MCR = Black Ice > HWlabs

Over all the Black ice is the best at the most common 1800 rpm range but not by much it eaks out a win over the Rasa and Fesser by a mere 0.4c.

It really depends on how fast your fans will be running and how much you wanna shell out.

You only need one reservoir (two reservoirs are something more for dual loops), and I don't think FrozenQ makes a CPU block.
