Recommend me a watercooling setup.

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
I currently have to many different ideas and no experience. So I'm just wondering what you guys suggest.

I'm hoping 1-360 rad and 1-240 rad will be enough but could go 2-360's and 1-240.

Also note that it all has to be bought in Canada, or shipped to here.

Thanks in advance.

I'm assuming you are cooling the 2600K and the GTX580's. The best route to go is visit the watercooling section on these forums and read up on what other people are doing on their rigs. There is no right or wrong way to watercool a rig as there are many different routes to take (pun intended!) and lots to learn. Read up on the watercooling essentials sticky in the first page and start there.

look at http://www.dazmode.com/store/ and find the stuff there. They are based in Canada.

That site sketches me out a bit, too many spelling errors.

Also I'm aware I could browse through 80 thousand pages trying to find someone with a system identical to mine.

I'm not really on a budget however I'd prefer to keep it under 1300.

I think you could do 360 and a 240 and be ok... be great if you did the 2x360 of course though.

That CPU and 2x580s are easy to keep cool so...

everyone from Canada says the Dazmode is the best place. Just put a system together and learn as you go if you aren't willing to read the common stickies

Here are some questions...

Are you going to be mounting your radiator internally or externally or does it matter?
If it doesn't matter I would recommend an RX 480 Rad with some good fans like the AP-15 or AP-14's.

Then get two EK-FC580 GTX+ Nickel + Acetal blocks, I have found these blocks to work great on my 580 getting a max temp of only 45c using the Extreme present benchmark on MSI Kombuster. With an overclock of (950/1900/2200) at 1.138 V

Then go on to getting a res you like, just get a nice quality one you like or you can get a res/pump combo.

For the pump swiftech makes some really nice pumps like the MCP 35X.

For your tubing I would probably get Primochill at 7/16" ID 5/8" OD but you can pick whatever you like.

You can either get barbs or compression fittings for your seals compression look nicer but are much more expensive, also make sure to get the right size and clamps for barbs.

For your CPU block I would recommend an EK Supreme HF.

Hope this helps.

This is exactly what I was looking for,

now a 480 rad may be a tad bit long, as my case is only few inches higher than a 360 rad is.

If needed I was going to mount one 360 to the back 120mm fan location, and then another inside my case at the top, then the 240 at the bottom.

I'd prefer to keep it internal but ill do whatever I must to keep it nice a cool while overclocked.

That's a fantastic temperature on your graphics card at those clocks, im at 90 degrees with only a 850 core on the stock cooler.

would there be any real world advantage to going with a 1/2" idx 3/4" od?

and those are actually the same blocks I was looking to get for the cpu/gpu

Now what is the best way to SLi them?, with the EK parallel block. and if so if I remember reading correctly you actually need more things to go with that block to make it work.

and I will almost definitely be going with some bitspower compression fittings.

I notices that the l3pdesk uses some pretty nice looking hard drive coolers as well, these seem like they would serve dual purpose to silence my hard drives and cool them, especially should I choose to build something along the lines of what he has. I havent been able to locate them, nor anything from that series of products that he used from bitspower available online really (mind you I havent really overly searched yet.

You could try that placement with multiple rads and it would work 480 rad would just be simpler.

For the 1/2" ID x 3/4" OD is more about preference as long as your barbs and clamps or your compressions are on you won't leak from there.

And I forgot to mention the best way is to purchase a parallel slot like you said.
Also IMHO I think hard drive coolers are just expensive and restrict your loop more, meaning higher temperatures in water, meaning higher temps in CPU/GPU. You could just get a HDD Anti Vibration mount or vibration dampener.

So with the parallel block I need two links correct?

Also I'm not overly concerned with the increase in temps that my hard drives would give if it makes them damn near perfectly silent.
