    Watercooling FX53

    Ok guys, what's the best waterblock for my new FX53? And more to the point, where to get it.

    Checkout the DangerDan RBX Athlon 64 block, it's the one I would go for

    For CPU block, looks like it's a toss-up between the Swiftech MCW5000-64 and the Danger Den RBX A64 & the Innovatek XX Flow. Plus a thermochil rad & Eheim 1250 pump.

    Maybe consider the Danger Den DD12V-D4 pump costs only a few quid more and can run of a molex connector so no need to buy a relay card. It'll probably smaller than the ehiem and more powerful. You can also control the pumps voltage/sound by connecting it to a rheobus.

    I would go for

    DangerDan RBX Athlon 64
    Danger Den DD12V-D4 pump
    Thermochill rad
    DangerDan res

    Relay card? I find its better to have it pluged in to a 4 way extension, and unplug the extension for when the computer goes off, which isnt often.
    The D4 is smaller than eheim 1048 without the grey end bit, and has more torque than the eheim (which is common in 12v pumps) and will push more water aswell if voltage is increased. IIRC it uses less power, so less powerfull.. more efficient though.
    The niose is the only thing stopping me selling my eheim 1250 for one.

    I'm to lazy to turn my pump on manually so I have my pump connected to a Criticool PowerPlant II Pump Relay Card so when I turn my computer on the pump starts with it.
