Where to start.

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Well long story short I got some cash now and I'm trying to build a 5.0Ghz performance machine. I'm almost certain the only way I'm going to be able to push that chip is going the water cooled route. I got an Antec 900 two mid tower and I have no idea on where to start to buy this stuff. I'm not cheap and don't mind spending extra money for cosmetics or quality... below are my specs. Any Idea's on where to start and recommend anything?

Case -Antec 900 Two Mid Tower
Motherboard -P67A-UD4-B3
Processor -I7-2600K
Power Supply -Kingwin Lazer LZ-1000w
Memory -16GB G.Skill Ripjaws X
HDD -C300 64GB SSD
Graphics -Sapphire 100312SR Radeon HD 6950 2GB

Please help...

For a beginner water cooler, the XSPC Rasa 240 kit is a great way to delve into watercooling.

I agree that's prob the best option, but where would the rad go in an antec 900?

Is there space for a rad between the front fans and the hard drive cage and would it need to be a low profile?

I saw a setup of this case before an I believe the rad can go on the back. Its got two pre-drilled holes in the case enough to route the tubing through it... will this kit fit the 1155 socket board?

Yeah, wow, you really don't need 16GB. Wait 'till the price drops if you want a RAM drive.

I would also go with the RASA Kit if you're on a budget.

You could customize your own setup, but that would also involve picking out all the parts from scratch.

It will.
I think you should get some better tubing and a nice coolant for this kit though.

Dude, get another HD 6950. It's WAYY more worth it than 8GB of useless RAM.
