I need your help/opinions

ok, I'm going to be upgrading my computer next month and I'm planning on going with a xpsc water cooling setup or something else if u can give me opinions.

the case I'm using: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133188
Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128521
GPU: 680
I need a kit that can water cool my cpu,gpu,ram

I want to know which kit to get and also I'm going for a razer black,green color scheme.

I've about $500 in my budget so go wild.

btw it will be my first time doing a custom water loop, but I'm no retard nothing patience can't fix ^^

  1. I would ditch the WC RAM idea...no benefit and highly restrictive.

    Here is a good place to start with questions/FAQs:
    http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/277130-29-read-first-watercooling-sticky
  2. question: do I need just one res/pump and 1 rad to cool my cpu and gpu? or do I need to get a second rad to cool the gpu?
  3. Why not just buy the card and block and install yourself to save some money? There are plenty of YouTube videos on how to remove a stock 680 cooler and installing a waterblock. Most blocks also include step by step directions as well. Just a thought if you are budget conscious. Just check if the card is reference or not using the EK Cooling Configurator http://www.coolingconfigurator.com/

    As for the other components, why not get a kit with a 360 rad in it or are you concerned about mounting locations? Other than that, not bad choices for a budget beginner build.

    There are also some other 120mm rads on FrozenCPU that are cheaper and would are just as good as that Coolgate. Here are a couple of excellent alternatives that might save you a couple bucks ($46 and under and don't forget fittings or barbs):

    XSPC EX120
    AlphaCool NexXxos ST30 120mm
    Magicool Extreme 120mm
    EK Coolstream XT 120mm
    AlphaCool XT45 120mm
  4. I don't trust myself to do it, but I think I'll go that route and the gpu and block separate. yea, with the case I've I'll would have to mount outside and idk how to even mount a radiator outside the case
  5. Google your case model and watercooling together and you'll be surprised how many images/forum threads you'll find.

  6. thx for all the help, I got what I need and how to put it together. my total budget for my computer total is $1458 and when I add the prices up of everything i'm doing I come out at $1431, so some next month I'll be ready to put them all in my computer.
