Sizing a Water Cooling Pump/Radiator?


I would like some advice/insight on how to select the correct size water cooling pump and radiator. As I haven't found any aftermarket waterblocks for my graphics card or motherboard, I will only be cooling my CPU for now. I really like the 5 1/4" reservoirs with pumps if that is possible.

PowerColor AX7870 2GB MYST (Tahiti LE)
G.Skill RipJaw X Series 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 LGA 1155
Intel Core i5-3570K Ivy Bridge LGA 1155
CORSAIR HX Series HX850W Power Supply

  1. Check the W/c sticky for some guidance on TDP's and rad requirements,
    and mobo blocks are not necessary btw but thats covered in there as well

    man goto frozen cpu and pick up a xspc kit I have been using it for 5 years or so ON MY i7 and have been happy with the temp at 4.2 ghz. I have the 240 RAD but will be changing cases to add a 360 for the top and put my 240 on the bottom and water cool my gpus also..
  3. Check the W/c sticky for alternate vendors, F-Cpu is one of the more expensive sources of W/c gear, but I agree on the Xspc kits, I started with an RX240 kit myself
