Hello, and thank you for looking at my thread. I have recently built a computer and I am thinking of upgrading it to water cooling. I have a two thousand dollar budget, and I am doing a black and green build. I am looking for COMPLETE overkill. As many rads as possible, nice reservoir with nice green led lighting. Fittings as high quality as possible. Everything needs to be best quality possible under 2000$. It would be great if we could use most of the 2000$ budget. Use two pumps if necessary. Just need some professional advice by listing the parts i will need.

Here is my build:
Phankets Enthoo Primo: http://www.phanteks.com/enthoo-primo.html
Intel 6700K CPU: http://goo.gl/gm9dA6
EVGA GTX Titan X: http://goo.gl/emtaq0
ASUS Z170 Deluxe Motherboard: http://goo.gl/CDs9W2
Corsair Vengeance DDR4 Ram: http://goo.gl/M6zinq
NZXT X61 CPU Cooler: http://goo.gl/2ohJ3R
NZXT 140mm LED Fan: http://goo.gl/vj1NGb
NZXT 120mm LED Fan: http://goo.gl/tCXcoU
Corsair AX1200i PSU: http://goo.gl/8WRnca
Intel 750 PCI-e SSD: http://goo.gl/N0aohe
Custom Mods/Cables: http://goo.gl/ZR55qM
I already Have this build btw.

It would be awesome if somebody could help me pick the parts, it would be a great help. I am thinking of cooling the GPU's and the processor. When the parts have been set, I will upload a build log.

Youngcolieo, I approved the thread, which was causing it not to show. The spam filter is a little over-zealous sometimes. Don't edit your first post, it will trigger it again.

Have you read through all of our watercooling stickies yet?
There's tons of invaluable information in there about setup, maintenance, etc about your watercooling loop.

There is a bug where an edit can get the post stock in perma-moderation. I'll get it fixed in a minute; sorry, I should have seen it.

EDIT: It is fixed now. Please don't edit your first post anymore. This only happens on new accounts, so once you get a few posts, it won't happen again.

Yes I have seen it and I have done extensive research. Now all I need is a professional to help me assure what I have picked so far.

You a bot bro? :p J/K

-You need to see how much heat load you will have in your loop and than figure out what you need and how much of it.

-Check other builds with the same case to get ideas what fits and what doesn't.

-Keep reading and researching till you come up with a finalized blue print and or listing of your H20 rig.

Well post up a complete list of all the watercooling parts you selected with descriptions and links to the parts. We'll be glad to go through the list for you.

Here are the parts:
Liquid:
I have 4 PrimoChill Pure Intensified | Performance Coolant (32oz.) - Clear http://www.primochill.com/product/primochill-pure-intensified-performance-coolant-32oz-clear/

Tubing:
Two PrimoFlex Advanced LRT 1/2in. x 3/4in. Tubing (10ft pack) - Pearl UV Green http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...ue&ref_=ox_sc_act_title_1&smid=A15YNZR7YB053N

Radiators:
1x Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper 480mm http://www.aquatuning.de/wasserkueh...2349/alphacool-nexxxos-xt45-full-copper-480mm
1x Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper 360mm http://www.aquatuning.de/wasserkueh...2340/alphacool-nexxxos-xt45-full-copper-360mm
2x Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper 240mm http://www.aquatuning.de/wasserkueh...2348/alphacool-nexxxos-xt45-full-copper-240mm
1x Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 Full Copper 120mm http://www.aquatuning.de/wasserkueh...2338/alphacool-nexxxos-st30-full-copper-120mm

Reservoir/Pump
2x XSPC D5 PHOTON 270 RESERVOIR/PUMP COMBO http://www.performance-pcs.com/d5-photon-270-reservoir-pump-combo.html

What I need help with is understanding the fittings I need (what size, as I am using compression fittings) and what water blocks I can get for my cpu and my gpu's that are best.
With all of these parts in the case I have an idea of what my loop will look like with this, and how the tubing will run.

Sorry for this post and how demanding this post is, as I know it seems annoying and thanks for being patient :)

Haha, hey you want to look over what I am thinking of doing for my build and help me out by saying wether its good or not? Also I am having trouble understanding fittings.
Thanks,
Ilyas
p.s. sorry for being so demanding :) once I have this finalized and ordered and received I will be posting what it looks like.

Right off the bat. Item #1. No fancy liquids. We preach it in the stickies, have for years in 1000's of posts.

So, this statement in post #7 is suspect. "Yes I have seen it and I have done extensive research."

It's not demanding at all, no worries. Can't demand from a volunteer, LOL.


I'll be back in 3-4 weeks to help you but I don't need to be teaching stuff you should know. I do have to work and have my hobbies also.

JayzTwoCents Says that its a quality liquid for a build because it has lubricant and it has biocide and it has anti corrosive pre installed.
