CPU/Pump Block for ITX

I am 90% done planning and ordering parts for my ITX custom watercooling build. Mostly includes 1700X, GTX 980ti hydrocopper, and Fractal Design Node 202.

Others suggested I went with 10 series card for less heat, but it was cheaper to get this 980ti card with block included then 1070 and buy a full cover block. Even buying a 980ti with EK-Thermosphere block would have been cheaper. I believe the heat will be higher than a 10 series but still manageable.

 

Now I have come to the all crucial pump and CPU waterblock dilemma. My initial plan was to disassemble a Fractal Design Celsius cooler, but it seems only the radiator fittings are removable. I also have seen several people take advantage of Cooler Master's ML series barb fittings on the block. There is also the Swiftech Apogee Drive II. I was curious to what everyone else thinks.

 

All input is accepted but please focus on the CPU/waterblock. Thanks!

 

EDIT: I have also seen people use Silverstone AIO block/pump

EDIT 2: be quiet Silent Loop block looks extremely promising.

I don't want to seem rude by not telling you in detail but I would prefer not to reveal that. Everything is planned out and fits, but I am most likely going to be doing a build log on this forum to show specifics once its being built.

 

... Lets just say the GPU compartment has a lot more room that it seems.

Usually people put a pump under the PSU area. I think the Eisbaer Lt pump looks nice on paper, but I know it is not powerful enough for a dual waterblock system.

 

 

Temps too high and monitored = melted tubes
