As the title suggests i'm in the process of buy and planning my first custom loop in my PC-O11 Dynamic case and i'd like a little help in deciding on parts.
So far the only thing i've ordered is a multipack of Barrow compression fittings from Aliexpress. They're gonna take a while to arrive so i have plenty of time to buy the other parts. For now i'll only be cooling my CPU as i haven't yet bought a graphics card worth getting a block for. I'd thought i'd list the parts i've decided on but i'm open to criticism/suggestions.
For pump/res i've settled on is the EK-XRES 140 REVO D5 PWM for £140. My question mark over this combo is whether or not i can attach a drain port to it?
For a radiator I was thinking of the EK-COOLSTREAM PE 360 for £77. I picked this simply because i fits my budget, i dont really know what i'm looking for in a radiator.
For a block I like the look of the EK-VELOCITY - NICKEL + PLEXI for £70. There's also the XSPC RAYSTORM PRO for £70 looks pretty damn good.
Adds up to roughly £290 and i'd like to stick to that number should any of you have any suggestions to the above list.
I'll be going with Mayhems soft tubing and X1 Clear pre-mix fluid.
I'd like to put together a air pressure system to leak test as described in this thread - https://www.overclock.net/forum/61-w...oop-101-a.html
- and i'd really appreciate it someone could spec me up the components i'd need from UK sources. As i'm new water cooling all the mentions of valves and equal tee's and 1/4" BSPP this and 1/4" BSPP that is making my brain hurt. I did post in the thread asking for help but i've had nothing so far. I could buy a Dr Drop system but it seems pricey at £30?
Any and all help would be most appreciated.
