Cooling - Am i missing anything?


Looking to do something like this to my Fortress case, only running a CPU loop for now.



Just want to make sure i have all the parts I need to run it for now and allow to upgrade later and add a 2nd RAD at the top later on.

XSPC RX360 Radiator
EK-Supreme HF Plexi
EK-DCP 4.0 12V DC Pump
EK-Multioption RES X2 - 150 Advanced

and barbs and tubing.

Why that pump? Also, is that example pic from Ace's build?

Not a bad pump, would be fine with a CPU/GPU loop. There are better pumps though.

Not sure if i should get a single rad and run at top just for cpu and upgrade later adding a 360 at bottom.

Or 360 running just cpu loop and upgrade later adding a 120 and gpu block

Depends on the GPU. Have you looked into the heatload sticky up top?

You got a overclocked 2600K and a 590, then 120x4 in total isn't enough, unless you like your room temp at 50F or so. Physics dictates a LOT in watercooling.

It's not that simple. Add a rad, all better. NOT.

You needa do a lot of reading, slow down, read the sticky, decide what you're gonna use, then go and buy stuff...in that order.

I agree with m0r7if3r stated.
One has to do a lot more studying; it will take a lot of hours. Keep lot of notes in notepad. Then consider what you need, want and how much money you are willing to spend. It's a 3 armed scale.
