ok, so im build my new rig, and i was wanting to water cool this one, cpu only though.
thing is, i dont know any thing about watercooling, so while i do some research, i was hoping you guys could put together a "kit" for me.
Like some links on how to set up water cooling right, choosing parts, ect.
I plan on cooling a 1090t and want to clock it to at least 4 ghz.
Any help would be appreciated.

Oh and if you guys could pick out some parts for this loop that would be awsome. But keep in mind i have to fit it all in a cm 692 adv.

Thanks again!

That makes 1/10000 of the fun and 99/100 of the panic moments

@ Lievyon - no budget really, but it is my first WC loop, would like to keep it simple and easy to get the hang of it.

@ Defoler - I take alot of pride in my work, do ALOT of local repairs, upgrades, ect. never been this nervous about anything computer related ( other then the first time i repaired a Power supply, electricity freaks me out! ) But on the other hand i just got a good sum of money, and im dropping about 20 grand on my new gaming rig, school rig, screens, games, ect. so if i mess something up im not worried about it anymore. I used to be super broke, working at Subway jsut to pay my internet bill on a old compaq computer, im addicted and its a huge hobby to me, and im just accident prone so i know if it leaks on anyone, its bound to be me, but i want the experince.

Wow talk about not liking to write essays, i wish i could type papers about my work experiences all day at school, i would acctually have fun

Hey fatjake440,
Like you when i first decided to go on watercooling i was a bit scared, you know water+electric components
, even because most of my components were quite expenssive and i couldnt afford to replace them if i f**ked up bit style, well i could but would take me a few month of course.
My advice is to get familiar with everything, read the guides here on OCN there some good ones on watercooling forum, also there's plenty experienced members that can give you good tips, i thank those who help me out
. My tips are order plenty of tubbing and a few extra fittings, double check your fittings and tubbing size matching. If you go for compression fittings read up on them, dont overtight them you will never get them off again if you need to re-tube or do maintenance to your system.
Also and this is were i f**ck it up royally, take extra care attaching your fans to the rad, is easy done to just grab the wrong size screws and pierce the rad without realise, i found out that the hard way, luckly the place i got my stuff included on my order and installation insurance for a small amount of £17 and paid off bacause they send me a replacement straight away and luckly after the accidend put the stock cooler everything was working good.
I already have my rad back and everything is fine now and im very happy i did it for the experiance i had and for the performance on the system.

Good luck tho, have fun

because you have alot of money + this is a hobby, I would recommend you put your own kit and get criticism from us. You'll learn more that way. Plus its more fun to go above and beyond.

If you wanted us to just put a loop for you so you could put it together and forget about it, that would be a whole nother story.

The loop Charlie made for you is pretty good. The parts there are highly recommended and used in many loops.
