Hello,

I recently was given a brand new TJ07 by a friend moving abroad and decided that it was a waste not to let it fufil its purpose and watercool it. I have been doing some research and have become confused about the design of the loop and was hoping I could egt some advice. There is so much conflicting advice.

Spec:

i5 2500 K
Asus motherboard ( model undecided)
GTX 570
Silverstone TJ07
PSU Corsair 850HX

My question is can I get away with a single loop for the CPU and GPU and a 3 X 120mm Rad? If so what woudl be the key considerations regarding components?

Regards

Daniel

Correction I meant 3 X 120mm Rad

I know it can fit 4 but is it really necessary for Just a single GPU and CPU.

You'd be surprised at how hot GPUs run, plus it's easier to plumb in new blocks than it is to locate new radiators if/when you expand your loop in the future :)
