Thanks for taking the time to read and offer assistance with my thread. I'm looking to water cool my system. I use it for gaming, folding (big time ), and media conversion.
2600k @ 4.5 ghz to 5ghz Gtx 480 sli msi lightning edition 16gb lp vengeance ram 1600 Nzxt phantom black orange edition with xigmatek orange led fans
I need help with obtaining waterblocks, pumps, rad, tubing, etc for the two gpu cards and CPU. I got h100 but its loud and pretty hot when I clock the CPU at 4.5ghz plus. At 5ghz its just not stable due to heat. Looking for an external radiator as phantom only supports 240 internally which wouldn't be much better than the h100. The gpu fans get ridiculously loud when folding. So looking for a quiet but high performance solution.
Most 'kits' are decent (check out the WC sticky for more specific info) but it ultimately depends on which one and what pump you choose. If you are looking at running GPUs with a 'kit' loop, you really are already looking at a custom loop setup. While there are a lot of people running XSPC X20 750 pumps in a multi-block loop, they'd be better served with a DDC or D5 pump with more flow and higher head pressure.
I've used the same Swiftech MCW60's for at least 6 different card generations and only buying 1 bracket for each of my 2 blocks ($8 each) over the course of that time.
I'm surprised no one has posted a build with an Iwaki (yet).
