Help Picking Parts

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So here soon I will be building my PC I have no experience with water cooling but I want to do a closed loop. I have the Gpu Block and the Cpu Block picked out I just need help on what fittings to get and how many and what radiators and all the essentials. I have experience with glass bending so I am pretty sure I will be able to do hard tubing. I will buy more tubing then I think I need just in case.

That GPU block appears at first look to be for reference GTX 1080s, I'm pretty certain that the strix is non-reference.

Sorry I forgot to save the part list it is suppose to be this https://pcpartpicker.com/product/bNcMnQ/evga-video-card-08gp46286

 

Sorry Ill fix that now

No prob, but the FTW is also non-reference, so you'll need the M04

Other than that though, for a 6800k + 1080, you should probably get at least a 360 rad, preferably more. In the x71, you might go with a 360 at the top, plus one in the basement. I would then pick up a DDC pump, a Reservoir, and for fittings, a minimum of 2 compression fittings per component. From there, you might want to get an idea of what direction you want your pipes to run, and choose right angle fittings accordingly. Then, you'll need a drain at the bottom, so I'd pick up a T-fitting, a rotary straight male-male fitting, and a ball valve drain port. I personally have a similar setup to this, and also included a temp sensor, since they act as a plug for empty slots anyway and only cost like... $10.

So it's not the FTW? Just the ACX 3.0 or ACX3.0 SC? In that case, it is a reference card and the M01 you linked at first is correct.

Does it matter if the pump is clear or black or is this just aesthetic and no I need the one you told me to get it is the FTW sorry if im being confusing

Alright, just be careful, as the M01 won't work for the FTW and the M04 won't work for the Super Clocked. It doesn't matter so much if it is clear or black, just as long as you get your pump from a reputable company. Make sure it is a Laing DDC, most reputable brands (Alphacool, EK, Swiftech, etc) are just rebrands.

reservoir size is entirely up to you, but 250 is a pretty happy middle ground. Only real comment is that the res you chose is made to have the pump mounted to the bottom. That's fine, but if you do that, there is no need to buy a pump housing, and could save a few bucks.

Alright and what do you mean a 360 rad I dont see any listed and so the pump and res I have are okay or is mounting it to the bottom good or is a pump housing better

The general rule of thumb is that you need 120mm of rad space for every component in your loop, plus 120mm rad space for every component you plan to overclock. Anything past that is just optimizing for temperature an silence. I run a 980Ti+5820k, and get pretty good thermals on a 360+240, so you'll be golden there. Do you have static pressure fans? Have you decided what diameter tubing you want to run?

 

You might also cross-check pricing with performance-pcs.com , that's where I buy my stuff.

No I dont have any fans I was gonna buy those also that was gonna be my last question and no on the tubing and ok I will cross check it.

Totally preference based, but you have a large case and few components, so I'd go 16mm. It really helps fill out the case and cure hardware dwarfism. I usually run 14mm though, but it can be hard to find that diameter.

If you haven't done hardline before, I'd get quite a bit. Maybe 3-4 meters of tubing. I used 2 meters in my loop. As far as fans go, make sure you get high static pressure fans. EK Vardar fans are a good choice, so are corsair SP fans, but I'd get ones that have a higher RPM since you can tune them to run slower, but you can't make slow fans run fast.

my guess is 10 if your case has no mid-plate, 14 if it does, plus 2 pass-through fittings if it has a mid-plate.
