Hey guys i am kind of a noob when it comes to liquid cooling systems so i need some help. i have decided to build my own system. right now my setup is
i7 3770k oc to 4.8ghz
asus sabertooth z77
msi gtx 480
16gb 1666mhz patriot viper extreme ram
and i have the new cm storm stryker coming in the mail
i am going to be cooling my cpu. gpu, and eventually a second gpu(both gtx 480s)
i did a lot of research on cpu waterblocks and i bought an xspc raystorm.
the queston i have is which pump should i get that is not very noisy but can move water through the system. i also need help picking a radiator and a reservoir. i dont really have a price range, just nothing over like 700 bucks.
any information would be helpful and thank you for reading my post
i have two gtx 480's water cooled mine are the asus models and i have the DD water blocks for them seems to work well as for pumps i like the 655 series there are lots of versions out there as for rads i have four for mine but i like it that way, it is a bit of overkill. rads depend on fan type or vice versa so what type of fans?
ok cool, so 1 pump is all ill need. by 655 i assume you mean the swiftech mcp655 correct? i have done a bit of research on it and i came across a few forums that say a 355 with a modded top is actually better. im not sure how much better though. do you think a 655 wuold work well for what i need? and thank you for taking the time to help me out.
i really like that pump a lot. do you know anything about it vs the swiftech 655? because the EK definitely looks a lot nice to me but im not sure if i want to spend the extra 50 or so dollars just for looks
