    Watercooling setup

    Hi,

    I'm currently writing a list of parts I would need for my watercooling setup.

    I will use the Swiftech H2O-220 Compact.
    Then a VGA Waterblock for a 8800GT
    And extra Tubing

    The MB is an Asus Maximus Formula SE, which has a waterblock for the chipset already installed.

    Is there anything more I would need in order to get this installed, because I'm not quite sure about the fittings/barbs/tubes.

    Any help much appreciated.

    I wouldnt have thought the swiftech compact would be enough to cool cpu,gcard and northbridge?

    Spot on.There is not a chance that its going to cool it to a reasonable temperature, its going to be even worse when you factor in overclocking.

    Re: Watercooling setup

    Swiftech compact is carp - the pump/block combo has a habit of leaking and taking out mobos and gfx cards.

    SEE HERE

    OcUK are famed for always having a poor selection of w/c parts (getting better tho)

    May I suggest you research more and head over to a decent specialist shop forum that will be able to help you to buy a decent set of components. Maybe buy one of their pre-selected kits.

    LIKE THIS

    It will actually work out cheaper in the long run, as it will be more upgradeable and not leave you longing for better cooling and wishing that you had done it right in the first place.

    buy good, buy once : buy cheap, buy twice

    edit/ i see you have already found cpc from your tubing link - pop in their forums and ask. Tell 'em what case and components you have and waht you wanna cool and they will spec you up.

    Re: Watercooling setup

    Go to WaterCooling UK - UK PC Water Cooling Shop and Forums - Click to enter and all your water cooling needs will be met. They have a great friendly forum aswell. Im signed up over there and dont even watercool atm.

    Edit: What case do you have and what is your budget?

    The compact H220 might stretch to CPU and NB depending on overclocking but would personally just use it for a CPU.

    That would not compare to the air cooled Thermalright TRUE which misses the point of water cooling - to be superior than air!

    Basically that wouldnt cut the mustard and is just a cheap way to say you watercool.

    Its not too difficult. As long as you make sure there are no leaks before installing the loop. If you can put together a computer you should find it easy enough.

    Reservoir > Pump > Radiator > Cooling Block/s

    Tubing, Clamps, Barbs, Coolant, Fans

    So I'm now thinking of getting the 220 compact, and also watercool my GFX and Chipset.

    But I will have a look for this month CustomPC issue, and see what they have in mind.

    Apart from that, would the parts all fit together with the 220 compact, when it comes to fittings and stuff?
