Water cooling parts needed!

So far I ordered:
Hardware Labs Black Ice GTX360 Radiator for PC Liquid Cooling
2 of Koolance VID-NX590 (GeForce GTX 590) Water Block NEW
XSPC 5.25" Bay Reservoir with Aluminum Faceplates (Black and Silver)

I need the remaining parts for my Corsair 650D build, I already have a H100 so I don't need CPU cooling parts.
Please list the parts from amazon as that is the only way I will be able to get it.

  1. PMed a mod to move this to the watercooling forum.

    WHOA WHOA WHOA. You're thinking of running two 590s on a single 360 rad?? That is just absolutely NOT enough cooling. We usually recommend ~240mm rad space per chip (CPU or GPU), and if you have four GPUs you're looking at at least 960mm rad space to cool those, and that's with 2000-3000 RPM fans (quite loud).

    If you don't think this through, this will end very badly for your hardware. Please read the stickies in the watercooling forum so that you understand what I'm talking about a bit more (this is considered not an optional step).
  2. This topic has been moved from the section Systems to section Overclocking by Mousemonkey
  3. GTX 590 = ~365 watts (each)

    A typical 360 rad will handle between 525-575 watts, on average with 1800 rpm fans. Your loop is looking at at total of ~730 watts at STOCK speeds (not including pump head dump- 15-20 watts).

    You are looking at a 360 and at least an additional 120 or 140 rad...

    Edit: To add:

    Compared to an actual water loop, the H100 falls pretty short. However, if you are limited by budget, I can see your concern here.

    I'd say a lot more if he want to cool them with a good delta. We're talking 4 physical GPUs...
  5. This would likely be a 10-15 degree delta. So, yes, I completely agree. OP should really be looking at at least a 360 and a 240.
  6. So should I order another one of this: Hardware Labs Black Ice GTX360 Radiator for PC Liquid Cooling

    Also what are the other parts I need to complete my water cooling? Please list them off amazon.
  7. Also how will i fit 2 360 radiators when I already have the h100 mounted on top of my 650D
    And what liquid will i need to use, is it a specific one?
  8. You're definitely going to need that second rad. You'll probably have to mount them externally, because I don't think you can even fit in a single 360 rad in the 650D (at least not without major modding).

    You really need to take a step back here and A) figure out what you need to cool, B) figure out what you need to cool it, and C) how you are going to implement B.

    Distilled water + PT Nuke OR a silver kill coil is all you need for your coolant.

    Well said.

    We shouldn't be telling you what to spend your own money on- what if you took the advice of someone that didn't know what they were talking about? Understanding what is needed for your build is essential - otherwise, why are you doing it to begin with? What happens if you run into issues in the future - wait on a forum to tell you what to do next? Watercooling is a learning process - it's best to know as much as you can.
  10. Go for it bro. You definitely can cool that dual GPU GTX 590 with that Hardware Labs Black Ice GTX360 Radiator.

    This actually my plan too in few months (cooling 2 GTX 590 on qual SLI with very small footprint).

    The objective should be is to go & make things smaller, not making thinks bigger & use up lots of power.

    We're goin green here. I think this is what Obama wants. :D
  11. GTX 590 TDP = 365 (x2)
    730 watts total

    On that HWL BIX 360 is possible, but only with 2000 rpm fans.

    If so, I highly recommend Scythe Ultra Kaze 2000's or 3000's. :) I run 6.
  12. I know that I need to know more about water cooling to do this but I just need to know compatible remaining parts to order first then worry about the rest later. All I want know is the remaining parts required from amazon (tubes, pump, fittings etc) that are compatible with my build.
  13. All components are universal in almost every sense. You just need to ensure that the fittings or barbs you choose match the tubing ID (and vice versa).

    The threaded connections on pumps & blocks are becoming more & more standard (1/4 G). You only need to know particularly the ID (inside diameter) of the particular tube & the fittings it would fit in. The OD (outside diameter) now becomes less of a concern as more & more tube wall thickness becomes standard.

    3/8 ID (1/2 OD) is the standard size. There's tubes & fittings that's less or bigger in sizes. Some likes it bigger (the bigger the better the liquid flow) but I would suggest using the standard size especially if you have a not so big case (it will look weird if you have a very small set up with big tubes).

    I don't like the look of barb fittings & prefers compression fittings.

    I agree that comps look a lot better than barbs - much cleaner appearance. You just need to make sure that you match the outer diameter with compression fitting or else you'd be wasting a lot of money on those.

    3/8 ID 1/2 OD is standard for medium flow, but 1/2 ID 3/4 OD is generally the go-to size for high flow "extreme cooling". It's a bit bulky but it does work.
  16. Agree...most enthusiasts use 1/2"ID 5/8"OD tubing, but 3/8"ID won't hinder your flow much, depending on pump.
  17. Ok so can someone just please link me to
    Remaining parts on amazon? Thanks
  18. If I link extra stuff, will you send it to me?

    :D
  20. I think it's only fair if someone 'just wants to know what to buy', I should be able to list additional gear that could be purchased and sent to me.

    I'm sorry- if someone isn't going to take the time to learn what they need to spend their own money on for their own good- if I'm going to be involved, they might as well spend it on me too, while they're at it.

    That needs to go on the sticky wall of sayings (looking at you, Moto :) )

    Look brother, we're not the ones building your liquid cooled pc. It's you building it. It's best that you should be the one doing your own research & not let this gentlemen hand every parts for you to purchase.

    There's plenty of online stores for you to check into for liquid cooling parts.
  22. I just want to know the parts to get and then someone at the IT department is gunna assemble it for me. Id rather ask the experts than spend time looking for and researching water cooling things. All I want is lower gpu temps, now can someone please link me to remaining good parts on amazon
  23. What is this for? It really depends on the use and your expectations vs. what you are currently seeing before you can really just 'suggest parts'...otherwise, you might end up with something that isn't going to meet your needs.
  24. Gaming... Temps are reaching 71C while gaming
  25. Ok so I have chosen the
    XSPC G1/4" to 1/2" ID, 3/4" OD Compression Fitting
    and MCP 655 Pump
    How many fittings do I need? And also will this tube work?
    PrimoFlex Pro LRT UV Blue Tubing -1/2in. ID X 3/4in. OD (10ft pack)
  26. Also what are the remaining parts I need, I have the radiator, 5.25 inch resovoir, pump, tubing, fittings, water blocks for 2 Nvidia gtx 590s.
  27. Ok, I'm going to be honest, here. I am almost to the point of abandoning this thread. Please take the time and try to help us help you...it appears that you simply just want complete strangers to tell you what to buy, but there is very little communication back and forth on what is needed, what you actually understand you need and any kind of motivation to learn so we can better help you.

    What radiator? For a CPU and 2 590's, do you realize how much you are going to need to dissipate from that loop? My guess is no.

    Don't need cpu cooling, already have h100
  29. Just want to know how many fittings I need and that will be all
  30. You need 2 fittings per component (each has an input and an output)
