OCN Build Me A WC Loop PLZ =)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So i want to start WC. I have the Haf 912, it is made to have a 240 Rad at the top but i DO NOT want to mount it there. i rather mount it on the back using a spacer, or internally. I was thinking about removing my hard drive bay to clear up some space then mount my single drive somewhere else.

I plan to buy a 570 then WC that too but not any time soon. So id probably need a pump and rad big enough to support that.

Im open to ALL suggestions. Thanks in advance

PS i live in Canada. so please make sure any part suggested is available in Canada or can be shipped to Canada.

Remove the harddrive rack at the front and go for a RX240.

This kit will be perfect, not sure what you'd do with your harddrives though :/

Ok, your budget will dictate what you purchase.
The suggested kit, will probably do the job, however when you decide to watercool your video card. Remember that the pump included with the kit isn't very powerful, so you will have to pick a very unrestrictive block so you don't move the flow rate out of the efficiency range for your cpu block. I would suggest, that you pick up mcw60 with the appropriate mounts. If i remember correctly, you can still use the built in fan to cool the memory and mosfets on the card.

For a lot more money you can purchase this, key difference is that the pump is far stronger, you'll still be able to use your 5.25 bays, the cpu block is probably one of the best blocks period, and you get some compression fittings to boot. However the radiator is not as optimized for low speed fans as the rx series.

Now is that worth 65 dollars more?

You have to decide.

Is the pump in the RX240 kit same as the RX360? If so, then I am running my sig rig setup on just one RX360 pretty fine. Temps on GPU never goes beyond 45c. Can't complain one bit.

That's impressive, that's inline with my temps on my 5870.
I've read conflicting reviews on the cpu block in that kit, on some reviews it appears to be almost to good to be true, low price, low restriction, top end performance... on others high restriction, and good but not great performance.


Either way, the OP needs to decide if that res/pump combo will work in his installation.
8 pcs of compression fittings are worth 40 bucks, so if he was going to buy them anyways, the price difference becomes 20 dollars.

If the rad/res combo can work in his installation, since he intends to get rid of his hdd bays, and will only have 2 bays free (1 for cdrom 1 for hdd)... that might limit his options. Then he should get the xspc kit.

He can always add an rs240 to the roof of the case, and another small pump.

For the most part, the Rasa CPU block is in the top 5. Some of them have gunk in them but you can just take it apart and clean it out.

And yeah, all the XSPC kits have the same pump except the RS120 kit.
