Spec Me A Kit

Hey All,

I am currently using a Zalman Reserator to cool my cpu and graphics card.

I have just bought a Swiftech Apogee cpu block off Kemp so thats the cpu covered but I am wanting to sell the Zalman kit and build something a bit more custom in the case itself.

So can someone spec me a decent kit to cool my cpu, graphics card and maybe north bridge.

My case isnt the biggest in the world though:

What do you think I could squeeze in there, currently has 2 HDD's and a DVD Rom.

Thanks alot, Sam

Well you have the Apogee (very soon we hope) so I would go for a Laing D5 (reliability and flow), though some would say different

As it's your GPU too you want a PA 120.3 for a RAD, but your case is tiny so perhaps you could fit a 120.2 to the back of your case

GPU = MCW60 - would fit most newer cards too so you have options

For the res I reckon those tube res look very cool and you may just be able to squeeze one in. If not then Alphacool do a sweet mini-res

Tubing is your choice but myself I prefer 1/2"

wowo just saw hams post - bargain of the week!

Just measured up and there is no way I could fit a 24mm in the top of my case, only other solutions are a 24mm on the back or a 36mm on the top.

Ok this is what I have come up with so far, I am planning on mounting a 240mm rad on the back of my case and having a 120mm rad my free cd bays.

So I would need the following:

http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/cata...roducts_id=462

http://www.watercoolinguk.co.uk/cata...roducts_id=336

http://specialtech.co.uk/spshop/cust...cat=541&page=1

http://specialtech.co.uk/spshop/cust...cat=543&page=1

Not sure on a pump yet and if I should have a reservoir.

Comments welcome.

I second the MCW60 for GPU, very good block.

Also I wouldn't bother w/cing the NB.

You'll need a reservoir, I like the XPSC ones which fit in the 5.25" drive bays, have a blue LED as well.

It looks like something that women would play with

I am just looking for something small to sit inside my case
