First time WC planning to buy... NEED HELP PLZ! - Page 2

post #11 of 22
Thread Starter 
I build, repair, and upgrade computers from my home. I also repair Xbox 360's, PS3's and other electronic devices. I'm a computer and electronic engineer and to be honest $60,000 a year is low for my particular skill set. There are people that I went to school with that graduated with lower scores than me but got a job strait out of school making well over $100k per year. My problem is that I have 2 kids and my wife is in the navy and we don't want the kids growing up in child care. So I stay home so and take care of them. It's a trade off and I do what i can with it. To be honest though, the $5000 months are far less common than the $1000 ones.

Oh and sorry for the double posts but I forgot to add that I have decided to just do my CPU for now and just add on to it later.

Thanks for that.

I currently have $6.24 so, I'm looking for a job.

I think I may make flyers and drop them into local mailboxes.

I quit my job at Mcdonalds, $6.58 an hour... Suppose its better than $0!

Anyways, the EK Acetal+Nickel blocks look great. All black and come in both CPU and GPU varietys.

Now onto your thread!

You want a:
-A loop that will work with a HAF-X
-That will cool a 930 and 2x GTX480's
-$300-500 price range?

I'm thinking 1x 360mm and 1x240mm rad. One internally on the top of the chassis, the other on the outside mounted to the 120mm fan mount.

I'm about to get the parts list and price now.

It'll be from an Australian company.
Gammods

UPDATE... I think I went overboard, but this loop will be amazing. Especially if you get compression fittings and some angled adapters.

Parts List:
EK-Supreme HF - Acetal+Nickel

BO: EK-FC480 GTX - Acetal + Nickel

XSPC Dual 5.25” Reservoir (top) for One Laing D5 Pump

Laing D5 12 Volt Pump-Variable Speed

RX240 Radiator-Double, Black, G1/4"

RX360 Radiator-Triple, Black, G1/4"

PrimoFlex PRO LRT Tubing (Clear 1/2" 3/4" 1/8") per metre

Barb G1/4" to 1/2", Brass/Nickel, Black Chrome

It totals at $800 dollars...

Hahaha, I'll see what I can do to bring down the price.

EDIT: I forgot the silver kill-a-coil, and a shroud to mount the rad on the rear on the chassis.

EDIT_2: You could cut down on the rads, one RX360 and High speed fans may do... :/

If you don't know how to watercool you should probably go on xtremesystems and read the watercooling sticky. Then go on youtube and search for watercooling 101. Then google the miscellaneous things that still aren't clear. That's exactly how I did it.

If its CPU only then you're not going to notice a difference between 240+360 compared to just a 240 (unless you have ridiculously low speed fans).

Flow is not too fussy with CPU only loops, as long as the pump does not run dry. People usually run the reservoir before the pump just to make sure this but not necessary.

Whether the pump goes to CPU block or radiator doesn't really matter. (I'm sure people will dispute this lol but it really doesn't matter).

The 'best' block will depend on what size pump you go for. High restriction blocks such as the Swiftech XT, and the XSPC Rasa will do better with a bigger pump. If you're going for a smaller pump then something like the EK Supreme HF 3.0 (which has a low restriction) will perform better.

Tubes and connections is easy. Just make sure they are the same! ie. Barbs for 1/2" ID = 1/2" inner diameter tubing. OD (outer diameter) won't matter with barbs, although you will need to know for your clamps. Some people run 1/2" barbs with 7/16" tubing to ensure a tight fit without the need of clamps.

Or use compression fittings (expensive compared to barbs) but much nicer and no need for clamps. With these you DO have to take notice of the OD. 1/2" ID, 3/4" OD tubing is most common size.
