Custom Corsair 700d Water Cooling help?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I am doing a Custon W/c loop in a Corsair 700d. I am looking for what Rad, Res, and Pump I should use. I thought about having a bay res, I don't know if that is a good choice. Any help is appreciated. I would also like to know how to bleed the system if possible. Here are the parts of the computer http://secure.newegg.com/WishList/PublicWishDetail.aspx?WishListNumber=11235169

I plan to purchase to them from Frozen CPU, Dangerden, and Koolance. Or other places if you know any others. If you need any info just tell me and ill put. Mind you, I am a noob to this. So... I may has a lot of questions. rolleyes.gif Thanks!

Welcome to OCN. I would reccomend the stickies first at the top of the forum. Also how much are you willing to spend and how much noise will you tolerate aka are you looking for a quiet system or are you looking for a performance system which will be nosier because that will vary which parts will get recommend. As for sites performacpcs, jab-tech, sidewinder computers are also good sites.

What are you looking to cool?

GPU?
RAM?
CPU?
HDD?
mother board
etc?


How well would you like to cool it, chill or extreme?

You looking to overclock the system and if so how much (goal)?

common is a single 360 or 3x120mm rad in the top of the 700/800D case and that will be enough to do a CPU and GPU.... and for that CPU and GPU I would think it would be enough as long as you get a good high quality rad

I have a res/pump

I would recommend looking into and researching the RASA 360 kits and adding a GPU block to it if you are looking to cool the card too.

While I prefer Danger Den stuff RASA kits are cheap so I don't know your budget on this build.

Danger Den has the nicest Res/pump I know to date.

research is key to a good or great water cooling build and the more you do will save you in the long run, ask questions if you need and don't go buying parts tell you are 100%

My budget is around 500 dollars. It can be stretched a bit if it needs to be. I will be overclocking, probably only in the 3-3.7 Ghz, possibly the GPU. I am cooling the GPU and the CPU. I am willing to do anything with the Water cooling, the time is not an issue. I have plenty of time after school to get all of it done. Oh, And I would like it to be rather quiet. I don't mind small fan noises, but quiet. Thanks!
Thanks again for the help.

For 500 I would look at the XSPC RASA 750 RX360 kit. The kit comes with everything you need - a gpu block and a kill coil or pt nuke. You can also look to get some quieter fans and colored tubing if you like. The total cost of that kit would be around 200 + 100 + 8 = 308 plus shipping. Otherwise a custom kit will run you right about your 500 mark. Personally I would go the kit and gpu route if it is your first time leaves you with extra money to upgrade other stuff or pocket.

Okay, So the one Rad that comes with the kit will be good for the CPU and GPU right? So, This is the kit http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12222/ex-wat-162/XSPC_Rasa_750_RS360_Universal_CPU_Triple_Radiator_Water_Cooling_Kit-_HOT.html#blank ?

And that Pt Nuke or Kill Coil is the coolant? Oh, And I got a Ek 6970 Water block with a backplate, do I need the backplate or not?

Yes I use a RX 360 rad with my 930 and 5970 and temps are great. And no you want the RX kit its normally around 200$ (http://www.jab-tech.com/XSPC-Rasa-750-RX360-CPU-watercooling-kit-pr-4780.html) <- Link.

The coolant (liquid) is distilled water you can grab it from your local grocery store. The additive (what you add to the water/coolant) is either liquid PT Nuke or a Solid .999 Silver Kill coil they run about 8$.

Kay good. What is the size of the tubing that come with the kit, is 1/4 or 1/2 etc? Or should I just buy my own tubing? And I remembered the 6970 has a backplate on it, so I wont need one. Thanks for the site to, looks good. biggrin.gif

Has on the web page what the kit contains. The 7/16" ID tubing will work on 1/2" barbs but you may have to soften up the tips on the tubing with some hot water. Also you will need 2 barbs for your gpu block so don't forget to grab another 2.
