New to WCing, Need some Advice.

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey all, as the title suggests, im pretty new to watercooling. I have no experience with setting up a loop but i would like to do one this summer.

Right now, im just not sure what parts are available/right for me. There is so many different kinds of Pumps, Rads, Waterblocks and other accessories its abit overwhelming!

In a nutshell, what i would like to do is, Watercool both my 5770s aswell as my CPU. Plus, i'm pretty sure i would need to get a new case for a setup like this. I dont think the Antec 900 is big enough. ( I want to get a new case aswell )


I Like the looks of the HAF 932, do you guys think i could handle a setup like this?

Would i need two loops or just one?

Any suggestions/advice would be greatly appreciated. I really have no idea where to start looking for WCing equipment so if someone could link some sites that would be great

Thanks

One loop would suit your needs just fine. I have my CPU and GPU on a loop with a 360 rad. If you want to start out easy, you can get this Rasa RX360 kit and just add a GPU block to it.

HAF 932 is more than enough for your cooling needs, I started out in the HAF 932 and moved into an 800D.

Some good sites for WC equipment:

Not to mention our own FS section for WC equipment!

If you are choosing the HAF 932 it is a great hybrid air/wc case. You can easily fit a 360 rad on the top and the 240 rad in the bottom with a slight modification. Your antec 900 wont be able to cool it easily unless you want to do an external system and run the tubings inside. Some popular case choices are the Corsair 800D, Silverston TJ07, Mountmods Cases, and Caselab cases most of which are on the higher end of the price range.

For webistes you can use the 2 posted above also siderwinder computers, jab-tech, aquatuning and petras shop you can order from too.

One loop is all you will need so you will need a pump, reservoir, cpu block, 2 gpu blocks, tubing, fans, barbs/compression fittings, killcoil or pt nuke, and distilled water (stay away from dyes and colored coolants).

There are many great resources on this forum up in the stickies and you can also ask more questions as you continue on your build. I would probably look at the HAF 932 and a 360 rad and 240 rad as mentioned it would be perfect amount of cooling for your setup and depending on which rad/fan config your choose you have a few options.
