Hey again, posted this the other day but ended up just getting a lot of useless replies about how making a WC setup wont make my computer quieter rather then any actual advice on the parts ive picked out or any answers to any of my questions so re-posted in hopes that someone may actually reply with something helpful.
My rig right now:
I7-3930k stock w/corsair H100 (cant get a OC to stick yet, new to these)
16 gig rip jaw Z series
EVGA 680 classified.
2x Intel 520 120gbs Os/games
5x WD caviar blacks for storage
All in a mountain mods extended U2-
I'm not sure if it would be better to just leave the CPU on the H100 and then build a dedicated loop for the gfx (and maybe mobo?)? Or do the whole thing. I have plenty of space for the rads and open drive bay space, as well as space on the bottom of the case. I am also planning to add a 2nd 680 classified at some point so need a system that's easy enough to just add more to. Also debating adding new ram possibly then cooling those? Unless that's totally useless
I posted over on another forum and got 1 reply but basically my current thought is to use a res/pump combo->Rad->GPU->back to res/pump and leave my CPU on the H100 for now. The parts i was thinking are the EK Res/Pump combo
, and the Ek XTX 480 Rad
. and then the EVGA 680 class waterblock+backplate
. I went with all EK as they seem to be very highly regarded in the various build logs ive read, tho i am open to others if theres anything better people can point out. My biggest question then would be the various fittings, tubes, connectors, etc that id need to tie these things together as well as fans. For them i gather that 'static pressure' is more important then just CFM, so i was thinking the Corsair SP120 High performance static pressure ones
although im not sure how much CFm/pressure is needed for a quad rad running just 1 (or 2) gfx cards, could i get away with the Quiet Editions?
they have half the static pressure but are 10db quieter...
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
