Upgrading my WC - What you think?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey.

I'm thinking of upgrading my current setup with the following:

http://www.coolerkit.dk/push_on___g%...lv-p-1440.html

http://www.coolerkit.dk/xspc_rx360___black-p-1096.html

http://www.coolerkit.dk/xspc_high_fl...id-p-1214.html x3

http://www.coolerkit.dk/zalman___zm_...ack-p-737.html (Simply because the one I have now is silver, and I want a one that fits the colour of the case)

I'm buying a Corsair 800D case.


Questions:


- Will the fittings fit or not? As far as I can tell, they will not. But I have to be sure because at the momment I have 6x of these, and only need two more for the rad upgrade. Do I really have to buy 8x new fittings if I buy this tube?

If they don't fit, what about these:

http://www.coolerkit.dk/feser___push..._od-p-974.html


- Is the tube okay? I want some white tubing since I think it would fit good in the case.

- EDIT: One other question - Will the pump be enough for a 360 and 240 rad?

- What do you think of the overall upgrade? Will it rock?



Many of you will yell "OVERKILL" since it's a CPU only loop atm


BUT. I will put kepler under water when it arrives in the stores, which I hope will be Q4 2011.

Tell me what you think, I need some feedback here :=)
PS. Sorry for the bad english, not native speaking.

I'm planning on mounting the 360 rad at the top of the case (Should be possible, even if the RX is abit thick, as far as I have seen at other builds?)

And the 240 I plan on mounting at the bottom beside the PSU.

Fit what? Will they fit the tubing or the components? All components use G1/4 so the fittings are good. However, your tubing is 1/2" and your fittings are 3/8"...you need to match the ID of the tubing to the OD of the fittings. So yes, the new set of fittings you selected will fit. By the way, people typically like the look of the 1/2" tubing compared to the 3/8".

I don't know if your pump is good enough because you didn't link it - but almost any pump will be good enough if you're only cooling your CPU and the 2 rads. Honestly I think you're wasting money on the extra 240 rad unless you plan on upgrading later to a lot more water cooled parts. Even then, you could buy the rad then....
You're just not going to see much of a temp drop from an extra rad.

Also, the RX rad will fit the 800D. That's what I use...there is even enough room for a push pull system. Which is what I'd recommend instead of the extra 240

Hm okay..

I do run push n pull right now.

The pump is the XSPC 750 Dual Bay.

Is the RX240 really enough to cool one GPU and CPU with nice temps?

If thats the case, I guess the only upgrade I'd be doing, is the corsair 800D case.

Oh, I see now. Hmm...well I used to run 2 GPUs with at rx360 push-only and the temps were really low. So I *think* you'll be ok with just a 240 if you're push pull with P-15s. What fans are you using and what rpm? If you want a quiet system (ie low rpm) then you're probably going to have to get the 360.

The RX240 will easily cool a CPU and GPU, yes. Anything else and you're going to want a 360+.

I'm using the AP-14s blowing air from the case and out (its mounted at the bottom, see build pics) and I'm running them at max right now, and I can't hear them. The pump is the only loud thing in the build atm.

Okay, so I guess I'd settle with the RX240 only for now.


I don't see the reason to cool NB or ram.
