Since I already bought pretty much everything I wanted to my PC, I started thinking on modding and with that I decided to go and get a water cooling kit because it looks awesome and because is silence at a good overclock.
I'm completly new to it and there is many stuff I still dont know and that is why I decided to came here and request your help and tips.
I have a HAF-X case and I havent measured the space I have on the top but I wanted to have a 360 Rad, with something around 50mm tick with 2 BITFENIX SPECTRE PRO BLUE LED (200MM)fans on top and another 3 x 120mm fans pushing.
The reason Im going for the 200mm on top is not that much for performance wise but more for aesthetics, because the HAF-X have those 2 spots for 200mm fans and with 120mm looks a bit weird.
For pump I notice that people love the SWIFTECH MCP655 with speed controler but I was wondering if it would be a bit overkill for the system. But I want to pass by CPU, Chipset and 1 Graphic card if possible. The graphic card I have now is a 560Ti so I wont be watercooling it, I want is to watercool a future graphic card, probably something at the level of a EVGA 580 watercooled at the time I change it. For now I will only be cooling CPU and chipset.
So the parts Im realy confused about is reservoir, connectors, coolant, tubing.
To resume, my specs are:
intel i7 970
and Evga 560ti (that wont be watercooled)
I would like to watercool CPU, chipset for now and a single graphic card in the future.
What I was thinking so far was a full size 360 rad (if I can fit it in my case) with the SWIFTECH MCP655 (but this pump is a bit expensive)
I dont have that much money so (between 250/300€) , what do you guys sugest??
Thanks a lot everyone,
