Could you give me your opinion on this cart? Going to pop my cherry with this build. Compression 90 degree 1/2ID-3/4OD, kill coil, and filler I am getting from frozenCPU since PPCs doesnt seem to sell these particular items.



Only questions I have is would one 655 pump be strong enough if I added two gpus, a 140.3 rad, and some north bridge cooling, further down the line. Anywhere I could check it myself?

IDK how familiar you are with heatkiller but I couldnt find the difference between my cpu block and the LC or LT version and there is 30$ price difference.

In your opinion, should I just roll down to 120.2 rad and get me some gentle typhoon. Unfortunatley they do not sell them in 140mm.

My rig is in my sig.

Here's something to help you decide between the LT and LC:



I'd personally get a EK LTX (You have the LGA775 backplate with that HK too, wasn't sure if you were aware of that).


As far as your rad goes, since there's a clearance issue in the 650D, I'd keep the 2.140mm radiator, if need be grab the Phobya 200 later. The 655 will be fine with that, you'll just have to adjust the level on it, I'd put it on 4 or 5.

ahwshome. +rep

Edit: and the back plate isnt necessary or helpful it sounds like, or is it just the wrong backplate?

AFAIK, when people bought the HK, they had to buy 1366 mounting gear. Look on the page, might have a drop down box or something.

Personally, couldn't recommend the HK, there's better blocks as far as Price Vs Performance.

Run some hot water and vinegar solution through your radiator, shake it around and then drain it. If the water that comes out is clean, then you're all good. If it has some things floating around in the water keep flushing it with new solution until the water that comes out is clean, then you're right to go. 8 parts water to 1 part vinegar is what I use.

Everything else should be fine.

^-^
