Hey, I was wondering if there are any pre-bundled DIY liquid cooling kits out there. I have been looking around frozencpu and my one worry about grouping the parts myself is getting the wrong sized parts. By pre-bundled or DIY, I mean sort of a barebones kit that you assemble yourself but for liquid cooling. It contains all of the parts necessary and all are compatible. If there are none, I would greatly appreciate if you were to put up a list of parts that you would use. Im going for a uv blue/ white color scheme to go with the phantom 410. Many thanks to any responses.
...Truth is, it goes beyond simply buying the "kit" or parts....you also have to plan, well, everything, from the case that will house this bad boy to the mix you'll be putting in your loop.
Guys, watercooling isn't that "retard"-friendly. Or for lack of better words, you need to do research before you go and start buying/building your WC loop.
Or, you can learn the hard way...
I understand how to assemble the loop and how to put water blocks and stuff on, the only thing i worry about is getting the wrong sized fittings or tubing. I don't want to break my water blocks by having a fitting with too long threads and i dont want to have to re-order some tubing or fittings, or anything
If you're not into all that research (you should but if you're not) and you insist on building something then you could look at say vids on youtube on people building loops. i.e. Linus from LinusTechTips has a water cooling guide series (4 vids i think) that shows all his components and which can be obtained on NCIX. Other videos may or may not be has good but you could use it as a reference to plan your components out i guess.
Think of it, take my above suggestion and make it your "to get an idea from" rather than "completely relying on it".
I'm from the camp that someone should know as much as possible before deciding what to buy. There is a huge issue with younger generations that just want the 'just tell me the answers' vs. 'I want to figure this out so I understand' thought process.
What would you do if there was an issue or a problem? If you don't completely understand what you are buying or doing, how do you know you're actually taking the correct advice to begin with? Are you sure you couldn't do the same thing for less money or in a better way?
There is a huge difference between asking questions on a forum just to get answers and asking questions to learn.
