Water cooling help (noob alert)

241 4
So I'm pretty aware of the 50,000 other posts like this but I just don't have the time to go through all of them so I was hoping for some help.

My chassis is an RV02-EW and I'm shooting for a setup pretty much identical to the one in the picture.

I've already got a 360 stealth black Ice GT rad to go on the bottom there and an EK Acetal Supreme HF CPU block and an evga hydro copper 2 on their way.

I would like to go with that EK Multioption 150mm res but I'm curious to know if maybe there is a res similar but better to it that I can go with in the same orientation and placement.

And as for the pump, hosing and compression fittings I'm a bit lost. I would like some suggestions on these.

Lastly, I'm aware that distilled water + silver coil is probably my best bet for liquid. Although I was wondering if using feser uv liquid would hurt?

Thanks guys!

with that case, a bay res may be your best option. This is an affordable solution that is successfully used by many.

Danger den builds a really cool Bay res for the D5 if that's the pump you like. XSPC also builds a pretty cool dual bay res for 2 DDC's if you would like to have the redundancy of two pumps. This (the bay res option) would solve a lot of mounting problems you might encounter in that case.


I like distilled and silver. Other stuff may cause problems. DI and Silver= cheap and safe. Use a colored tubing if you want the effect.

Barbs are fine and may even be more secure. Compression fittings are more for looks than better function IMHO. For the cost, XSPC Barbs are cheap and perfectly functional. On the other hand, you can spend a fortune on fittings if you want to!
