    Yeah, when you look at the Lang pump/res combo being around $150 dollars.. It's great. Just gotta see about it all..

    I just got me a Corsair rebranded Laing D5 for $45 :)

    Looks like I'll be able to actually join the watercooling club again fairly soon :D

    A Laing DDC 3.2 with the XSPC Reservoir top costs $115 at Petra's. It's a much better combo. That one you linked only does 1.8M of head, the Laing does 4.5M all on it's own, let alone if you add the XSPC top to it. That means the pump combo you listed won't do too well under higher pressures caused by restrictive or multiple blocks.

    Yeah, your right there. I can do the same set up I have now, for my pump, for just $.92 more then the Laing DDC 3.2 combo.

    Just looked pretty neat... lol

    Well I went through every page in this thread. I'm at the point of buying but got a ?

    First off, for now I want to do my CPU and NB/SB

    D-Tex Fuzion V-2 CPU Block - seems everyone agrees this is good

    Laing DDC 3.2 Pump with XSPC Reservoir Top Seems everyone agrees this is good too.

    Bitspower BP-WBAIX48NSF-B (NB/SB all in one) Block

    Seems like alot of Radiators are out of stock but I'm looking at this one and it is stock.

    BLK Ice GTX 360 Rad

    Now my ?? is what I'm buying will be good for CPU and NB/SB but if and when I do my video cards will they be enough. I see alot of people putting in two pumps and 2 rads.

    I'm not thinking of doing cards now because of might be switching out. Dam blocks for cards aren't cheap :eek: Let alone doing 2 of them. But you never know might want to do in future.

    Would this setup do my cards to with out adding another pump/rad ??

    If silence at the same performance levels is your goal, you can put all of it on one loop. If max OC potential is your goal, I suggest doing 2 loops/rads/pumps.

    And as a fair warning, the GTX rads need pretty high flow fans to reach their max potential, due to their fairly restrictive fin design.

    The Swiftech MCR-320 is probably the best bang for the buck rad that will perform great with medium speed fans.

    I use Fatboy's they have a slightly bigger ID I think..but really dont see it harming your flow too much using other 1/2" barbs...with a good pump I would not worry!!

    Well,
    Kinda new to this forum but not to watercooling. So I think this club is up my alley.

    I have a new build that I'm putting together. I wll be cooling an I7 920 and 2 GTX 285's.

    I know most of the parts I'm going to get. I'm just trying to decide if I want to run one or two loops. Once I decide on that I will be posting a build log.

    I'm about ready to watercool my mATX system. Here's what I've got so far:

    Laing D5 (Corsair variant)
    HWLabs Black Ice GT Stealth 240mm
    EK 150 Res
    Tygon or Masterkleer R-3603 7/16ID tubing

    What CPU block should I get? I can get a Fuzion v2 for $54 + ship, and I might have a used GTZ lined up for me. I'll be cooling nothing more than a Wolfdale for now.

    I noticed the Koolance barbs have a choke where the threads are - not a full bore like those bad boys. I think the DD ones are cheaper too.

    After using (or trying to use) some Koolance products on my new build, I'm not crazy about thier stuff.

    You should do fine with the Fuzion v2

    You'll like the Fusion v2 chip cooler! The only other thing I would buy besides that cooler would be the heatkiller... But, the price on it is a killer!!

    If the 3x120 version performs as well as the standard counterpart, I will get one to help simplify my setup.

    I'm quite wondering how it will do! Pretty nice thought to try to do.. The charts don't look quite bad.. Just don't know if I'd drop around $150ish on it all..
