Hello! I am gonna go for water cooling my next computer. I want a silent pc mostly, and i want to try water cooling I will be cooling a ivy bridge i5 and a hd 7970. ive watched lots of youtube videos and read alot of stuff on water cooling so I hope i made good choices.
i've picked the following parts, plz let me know if I can do better!
I'd stay away from EK's nickel blocks. Had two (pre and "post" corrosion), and the older block corroded according to the guy I sold it to, and the newer block has a tendency to build up some sort of mineral deposits. Either way, it shouldn't be happening, and RMAing to Slovenia is a b****...
If you can afford it, pass on the Rasa kit. That pump is just not as worry free as a good D5/DDC pump is.
I have the 655 pump as well. That res should also be fine (I use a different one, but XSPC's design is pretty good). I had that pump/res combo from the kit and there was always a feeling that something would happen to it. Mine was actually pretty quiet, but I've heard that is not the norm for those kit pumps.
