Hello,
My current build consists of,
Antec DF-85
Asrock Z68 Extreme 3 Gen 3
Intel i5-2500k @ 4ghz (I want higher)
16 Gbs of DDR3 1600
250 GB Sata3 hardrive
60 GB SSD for cacheing with the Z68
I only have the stock cooler for the cpu in anticipation for water cooling.
Sapphire Radeon 6950 Dirt 3 edition

So what i have is all found on frozencpu.com. This is a all inclusive cooling system where AESTHETICS MATTER! I want as much to be red as possible. I am a noob at moding and especially liquid cooling, i have read multiple guides for it but i always feel like i missed something, here what i have so far.

Magicool Extreme Dual 140mm Radiator - Slim Profile (MC-RADI280)

Select G 1/4" Fittings (Qty. 2): 3/8" ID Barb ($5.98)


EK Supreme LTX CPU Liquid Cooling Block - Electroless Nickel Plated (EK-Supreme LTX - EN (Nickel))

Select G 1/4" Fittings (Qty. 2): 3/8" ID Barb - Black ($6.50)


EK VGA Supreme HF -Bridge Edition- Universal High Performance VGA Cooling Block - Acrylic (EK-VGA Supreme HF Bridge Edition)

Select G 1/4" Fittings (Qty. 2): 3/8" ID Barb ($5.98)

Feser Tube Active UV Hose - 3/8" ID (1/2"OD) Anti-Kink Tubing - UV Red

Bitspower Galaxy Freezer Universal RAM Module Liquid Cooling Block - 4-DIMMs - Ice Red (BP-RAMS44-IRDBK)

Select G 1/4" Fittings (Qty. 2): 3/8" ID Barb - Black ($6.50)


Steel Spring Hose Clamp for 1/2" OD Tubing - Black

Enzotech BCC9 Memory Ramsinks - 8 Pack (BMR-C1L)

Danger Den Monsoon "Premium" D5 / MCP655 Dual Bay Reservoir - Black / Black Face / Red Trim / Red LEDs (RES-304) - New Revision!!

Swiftech MCP655-B ($89.95)
Select G 1/4" Fittings (Qty. 2): 3/8" ID Barb ($5.98)


PrimoChill Anti-Kink Coils - 1/2 OD" Tubing - UV Red

Again i have no other parts, so whats there is all i will get. Am i missing something? I am slightly confused how to get MOSFET heatsinks for my VGA.

Also if i can get kinda the same look with somewhat comparable cooling for less, and you know of these parts, or part stores, where i can get this stuff, i would really appreciate a link.

Thanks in advance

Technically, your post should be here:

However, I think you have most of what you need, but I don't see any fans. If you are looking at cooling the CPU and GPU and have a "slim" radiator, you may not get the most cooling available. The ram cooler is probably not necessary, unless your ram is a high-voltage kit that needs it. As for VGA cooling, you can either go with a full coverage block to cool the mosfets, or just buy some Microcool or Enzotech mosfet heatsinks and apply them with frag tape.

Sorry. + Thanks

It said cooling so i assumed this is where it went. A full cover block does not exist for this card, or at least that i know of. The ram cooler is just mostly for future proofing the system. I do wish i could find some motherboard MOSFET blocks. I have tried coolingconfig but the only recommend a blocks that they do not actually sell. Also if you look at the case could you recommend other radiator placements? I could try to use 2 radiators one dual 140mm and one dual 120mm, however I'm not sure if it will fit in the case correctly. I want this to be entirely contained in the case, i abhor external radiators. However i would make it possible that i could have quick disconnect to an external radiator tower. But i feel as though i am WAYYY over complicating this.

Thanks,
