More about possible liquid cooling proofread please
  1. Don't need RAM/Southbridge/HDD blocks. Northbridge is questionable...but depending on overclocking speeds...might be fine.

    You don't really need more than one pump...unless you want to pay for it and run redundant (?)

    No to any kind of coolant. Isn't needed...doesn't benefit you at all. If you want color, get colored tubing or dyes, not coolants.

    What are you planning to cool...CPU obviously...how many/what kind GPUs? This will dictate how many rads and what size you'll need. Also to note, those rads you have listed are 30 FPI, so you'll need 2000+ rpm fans with good static pressure to run well.

    Question- Why are you only using Koolance stuff? I mean, they make some pretty decent gear (I'm not a fan of their rads, though) but you can find other components by other manufacturers...and maybe save yourself some cash. Your $1100+ loop cost is incredibly absurd.
  2. dual 590's, and im overclocking RAM quite a bit, so im going to keep those, but I do agree with the no southbridge. However, im going all Koolance bc they are donating the materials, so price is no issue.
  3. DDR2 and DDR3 RAM doesn't really get hot, but don't let me stop you. Just expect those to cut your flow rates down.

    How did you manage to get Koolance to donate all the stuff? I'd be more than happy to go all Koolance if they were doing that for me.
  4. its a promotional thing - im getting all donated computer parts, building it, then publishing and promoting everything on my blog - its a sweet deal, w/ like 6 grand in free stuff!
  5. Damn, nice gig if ye can get it......
    Can we have a link to the blog too? :)
  6. Xmod- PM'd.

    I'll start a blog if that's what it gets me! Man, that'd be nice. I'm surprised some of the regulars here aren't sent a bunch of promo stuff for reviews, teardowns, and whatnot.
