WC, is this what the typical loop would consist of?

Hello, community! So I've been looking into WC and though I won't be doing it anytime soon (because I don't have the money), I was just wondering if these parts are what would be correct for a CPU/GPU loop.

CPU waterblock http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9767/ex-blc-679/Swift...

Pump http://www.frozencpu.com/products/6073/ex-pmp-53/Danger...

Rad http://www.frozencpu.com/products/4083/ex-rad-84/Black_...
(and the fans http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0026ZPFBG/ref=s9_simh... )

Resevoir http://www.frozencpu.com/products/8336/ex-res-144/Swift...

Tubing http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10690/ex-tub-662/Tygo...

GPU block http://www.frozencpu.com/products/9760/ex-blc-672/EK_Ra...

Reusable clamps (are these safe?) http://www.frozencpu.com/products/2292/ex-tub-31/38_OD_...

And then for the coolant just some distilled water from walmart.

EDIT: All the barbs I have selected for the radiator and other parts that don't come with them are 1/4" ID.


So is all this stuff what you would need? and everything is the correct size (like the barbs and stuff). Just want to make sure that I got the basic idea.

Especially if you want the CPU and GPU in the same loop, I'm not sure that 1/4" ID is going to permit sufficient flow. Look for 1/2."

Take the above with a sack of salt. I am not a proponent of water cooling due to the possibility of destructive leaks and little notable benefit over decent air cooling.

But, otherwise everything would be correct? Like if I ordered that I could actually set it up because everything would work with each other?

It looks right, but let someone with more W/C experience confirm it.

CPU & GPU Block: Good.

Pump: Good. You may be able to find the MCP655 cheaper.

Rad: You NEED a bigger rad if running the CPU AND GPU on the same loop. 320 is the MINIMUM for JUST and i7.

Res: Good

Tubing: Get 1/2" ID. If you want colors check out the Primoflex LRT.

Clamps: Imo, use compression fittings. Much better.

Coolent: Distilled with a few drops of PT nuke OR grab a KillCoil.

Imo, usually FrozenCPU is over priced check out these stores:

Thanks, Shadow! Just wanted to know if I was on the right track which it seems that I am. I wasn't sure about the rad for CPU/GPU but you just confirmed that

What kind of temps are you getting with your setup Shadow ?
My loop is kind of similar to what the OP listed
DD CPX-1
BIX II / 2300 rpm NMB's
Apogee XT
DD Tieton
MicroRes

930 @ 4.0 and GTX 260 hitting 65º and 66º under Prime and Furmark ( 40 min. run, 25º ambient )


I have a TFC 480 to switch over to, just been to lazy to do it.
