I am assuming that you are ONLY building a loop for your CPU with plans to expand to a GPU down the road. I am not the biggest fan of your parts list, but that is not what you are asking here. The 4xML fans will serve you well, I use 10 in my rig and I have always loved Corsair fans (Thats about all I love from them). 1 60mil rad will serve you well for CPU only. Post pics and questions moving forward if you need help.

Yes, for CPU only. unfortunately I cant install UT60 for air intake, not enough space. On the case top too. I have 8 HDDs and cant remove storage.
This why I choose 27mm radiator.


what about pump?

Rated power: 19W
Water pump flow: 800L/H
Is it enough?


Yes, i asking about change my parts list.
It should be budget. Even budget its expensive
Requirements for radiator 420mm long(including ports, actually 420 radiators 460mm long). 60mm total thickness with fans
CPU waterblock preferably with ARGB
It should be available on amazon.ca and shipped from Canada, i cant wait it from US Amazon, cause it may take so long.



the only space for reservoir it front of videocard. will post photo later
its my old setup, i still waiting for CPU



Pumps:

Thermaltake Pacific DIY PR22-D5 Liquid Cooling System Adjustable D5 Pump, CL-W082-PL00BL-A CDN$ 213.43 1135L/hr
Water Cooling Pump, fosa Acrylic Computer DIY Water Cooling Tank Cylinder Reservoir 19W Pump G1/4 with Waterproof Durable 110 160 210 300mm Liquid Cooling Water Tank (300mm) CDN$ 66.99 800L/H
https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B0185C4XHA/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A3DWYIK6Y9EEQB&psc=1
May be something in between?
ARGB preferable

While I understand you are on a budget, and you seem to be concerned with argeebee, you are asking for trouble skimping on components like this. Why not just grab something like a Swiftech/XSPC/etc kit for a little more and save yourself some headaches - https://www.performance-pcs.com/water-cooling/aio-all-in-one/swiftech-boreas-series-diy-liquid-cooling-360-kit-h2o-boreas-360.html

Lay it on it's side under the GPU
not a good idea, i'd better buy separate reservoir and pump
ASHATA CPU Water Cooling Pump,3000RPM Fast Heat Dissipation Computer Pump 800L/H Flow 3.5 Meters Pump Head PC Pump Tank (red)

Water Cooling Tank, 190mm / 240mm / 300mm / 400mm*50mm Diameter POM Cylindrical CPU Water Cooler Reservoir System Heat Sink Kit for PC Computer(300mm)



Actually 400mm will fit, but not sure i need it.


Description says i need install RGB ligth here, anyone know what ligth?

I am in Canada, i will expect higher and longer shipping and extremely high brokerage fee if it ship by UPS/DHL. USPS->CanadaPost charge only $5 brokerage. And all of this not refundable. I dont want even try.
Only amazon.ca or newegg.ca. newegg.ca not very good


is this set good?

Don’t mix aluminum and copper in the same loop.

So, waiting a week to do your loop correctly (well, at least closer to correctly in this case) when you are spending $400+ isn't worth it?

Don’t mix aluminum and copper in the same loop.
+1 ^This

See Galvanic Corrosion - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galvanic_corrosion

Reference thermal conductivity chart below.
Or, how about "don't use aluminum rads, especially no name Chinese ones"?

Actually I read lots of topic about galvanic corrosion. Metals should touch each other. Electric current must be present. In computer system it takes years, maybe 10-20 years.

Copper waterblock better that alum, radiator the same. Ekwb even made aluminum line of their components. But I think it play big role in waterblock, but not in radiators.

In galvanic pair copper-al, copper stay untouched.

Ok, copper and steel also galvanic pair, all old cars was made with steel engine and copper radiator. And system takes water, not special modern coolant with lots of additives.

I also thinking to install 420mm thermaltake aluminum radiator on top, it it start leaking it will be problem. Front radiator will leak on floor. Not a big deal. As I said copper stay untouched, alum corrode

Longer hoses will increase water resistance and will lower galvanic corrosion.

I just need to know, when Chinese aluminum radiator start leaking?
1 year, 10 years?

Copper itself corrode too.

OK. I will put:

Alphacool 14179 NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 420mm Radiator Water Co...
CDN$ 185.36
On top

Alphacool 14230 NexXxoS ST30 Full Copper X-Flow 360mm
CDN$ 132.38
On front

After cpu air will go into 420mm radiator. This radiator cooled with warm inside case air(2 radiators cant work for intake), than it will go into slim 360mm radiator and will be cooled with cool outside air. And returned to reservoir.

Maybe I need to put small radiator between pump and CPU? To provide coolest possible air?

Hi,
Suggestions haven't gone to well so I suppose you should do as you wish too :thumb:

Lol sounds like you’ve got it all figured out. Go ahead and mix them. What do we know? We are just experienced watercooling enthusiasts.

Ok, I changed it to copper.

What is better alphacool ST30 and regular 25mm fans or XT45 and slim 15mm fans?

Between those 2, ST30 and regular fans. Slim fans will need way more RPM (think noisy) to push air through a 45mm rad. Basically you can get the same performance with less noise going with 30mm rads and 25mm fans. Even better would be 25mm fan with 45mm rad.
