Price is definitely nice for the combo
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
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 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.
Can you recommend a Rad , i'm OCed now to 4.10 24/7 but wanting to see how much farther I can go.
The Swiftech MCR-320 is probably the best bang for the buck rad that will perform great with medium speed fans.
^^ I agree.
Thanks guys I ended up ordering :
PTS Ultimate Radiator Combo MCR320 QP Edition with 3 yate loon 120 mm fans (med)
Are these top of the line? Fat Boy fittings I'm thinking of ordering these to replace and to install in all I buy. From blocks, rads, res. The compression ones are nice but they tend to scare me a little. specially the price
Oops sorry, maybe I souldnt be posting in here. This is a water cooling club and I'm not there yet. Holler at me if I should go else where with ????s
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!!
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.
Someone is offering free watercooling equiptment.
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
Good because I ordered it last night
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!!
I wonder how well this Swiftech MCR220-QP Stackable 2x120 performs?
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..
Lots of results on those sandwich rads.
