My First WC Build (Not Bought Yet)

Ok, I have been looking at all these extremely sick water cooled builds :pt1cable: , and I really want to do one myself. I do not have the money for everything at the moment, but I am going to buy the PSU and cable sleeves/heatshrinks and sleeve it all first, but I have to wait until January 1 to order the sleeving (No international until then :fou: ). I will then probably get the case, I am going to make a custom motherboard holder or whatever, then see if I could mod it to fit a 480 rad in it and a 240/280 instead of a 360 and a 120. After that, will save up enough to buy the rest to make sure it all fits. If it all fits good, I am going to get a custom paint job (Black with white accents). Please tell me what you think!

  1. Seem ok, but I would change that 120 radiator for another 360 or at least 240.
  2. Get a 7970.
