Help choosing my 1st water components

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi all

Im Gonna give my 1st mini water cool GPU loop ago in my NZXT Phantom, been doing a lot of reading and i have come up with these components.

GPU Block- EK-FC5850 - Nickel

Pump/Res Combo- XSPC Single 5.25" Drive Bay 200 L/ph 12V Pump with Reservoir (Not to sure about this so would appreciate any advice)

Single Rad- EK CoolStream Radiator XT 120 (120.1) Not decided what 2 fans in push/pull setup to use yet

Tubing- Primochill PrimoFlex Pro LRT 1/2" ID - 3/4" OD (13-19mm) Tubing : White (Would like white UV so shopping around for it)

Clamps- Nylon Hose Clamp for 3/4" (19mm) Outer Diameter Tubing - Black

Barbs- /4" Thread High Flow Barb Fitting for 1/2" (13mm) ID Tubing : Black

Fluid- De-ionised Water 1 Litre

Im gonna say give myself a max budget of £150, i only really want a small loop as my cpu is cooled very well by my megahalems, id appreciate any advice on different components etc as i always value people opinions on these things

Many Thanks
My System

£150 is a hard budget to work to imo, even rasa kits will come to that without the water block...

From watercoolingUK:

GPU block:

Pump/res:

Rad:

I have no idea how that rad will perform, poorly in comparison to others no doubt considering it's half the cost, but it will get rid of the heat from a single GPU...

Then ofc you will need tubing barbs and additives, which will take you up to £150 pretty easily imo.

If there's any way you can, get a better rad, or get a rasa kit and then add on the GPU block.
