    Watercooling, parts advice needed

    OK moving on from an Antec Kuhler 920 to a customer loop for my i5 3570k.

    Need advice on a decent, but not not break the bank block, pump and res.

    Already have a XSPC RX240 rad, pipe cutters, 2x black apache 120mm's and some kill coils.

    Was thinking on the XPSPC 750 pump/res combo but struggling on the CPU block since soooo many

    Re: Watercooling, parts advice needed

    What case are you fitting this to?

    Wouldn't recommend a combined 5.25" Res & pump, you have no option for vibration dampening.

    I'd choose a Laing pump D5 / DDC over any other on the market, they cost a bit more but the quality and reliability is worth it.

    Re: Watercooling, parts advice needed

    Also with combined pumps if it fails you lose the res as well.

    I have always used the laing D5 pumps and never had any problems with them. Expensive but worth every penny.

    I have just moved to a EK supremacy block so I would recommend that over a older supreme one.

    The x res is good for fitting in a tighter sapce

    With the optional pump mount you can mount it in tighter spaces and it eliminates vibration as well.

    http://www.specialtech.co.uk/spshop/...pid-10379.html from 300-800lph quiet as a mouse ..
    found the langs to be loud and vibrate a lot
    What does it matter now if men believe or no?
    What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,
    To murmur in pity that my words were true
