And a T-Line. I recommend 5/16 ID tubing (even if it's a PITA to get onto that pump) because it's like 1/2 ID without all the bulk. For the t-line, pick up a tee from petrastechshop.com. The OD of the tee has to match the ID of the tubing. You would need a 5/16 OD tee for your system if you get 5/16 ID tubing.

 

Btw, you really dont need a 360 mm rad if you are not cooling a quad and sli video cards. I am cooling a quad with a 240 mm rad and it works just fine.

 

Also, for rad fans, get these, they are a bit on the loud side of quiet, but they push more are than almost every fan in it's class.

Thanks alot. I'm still pretty noobie at this. and trying to wrap my head around WC'ing

 

I chose the Swiftech MCP655 pump myself but im still kind of new to the liquid cooling thing, I believe either res's will be ok, ive seen a lot of people suggest the Swiftech MCR320-QP-K Triple 120mm Radiator (the one I ended up getting for my rig).

 

is this for a cpu only or are you going to be putting the NB and/or GPU(s) in the loop as well?

Go with the Laing pump and the top, and the swiftech radiator, I use a t line on 2 rigs and a reservoir on another, I had one laying around so... A reservoir makes it a lot easier to fill and bleed but is not necessary. Also I use 7/16" tubing on my 1/2" fitting, not sure about that 5/16" never heard of it myself. The Black Ice radiators are harder to get air through, so if you go that route get some high cfm fans...

 

Edit: Which cpu block are you looking at?

Yes, 7/16 sorry lol, was thinking of something else at the same time. Need to upgrade my brain to a dual core...

At this moment it is going for a C2D solely, then later on it will be for a Core i7 and NB setup, I'll have another loop set up for a sli setup, so this loop right now will solely be cpu and nb. also, how do you like your Rad ?

 

and is the MCP655 better than the Danger Den pump?

The CPU block I'm looking at is the Apogee GTZ

http://www.petrastechshop.com/swapgtzcpuwa.html

 

and what top was that? the first one or the res top?

 

I don't really know anything about T-lines, so I'm not trying to get too advanced into things yet.

 

Thanks for the replies

The laing DDC top, I would pick the swiftech reservoir if you going with a reservoir. A T line and fill port just takes the place of the reservoir to give you a place to fill and bleed.

heres an example picture...

Thanks for the pic,I'll think about the T-line, but most likely end up with the swiftech res.

also my case is the cm stacker 830, so i should have room for all this right ?
