HI All,



I have been out of the PC building/modding for over 3 years now and looking to get back into it. I am currently looking at either a AMD Bulldozer setup or an Intel 2500k setup with the following:


4GB RAM
ATI 4950 (hopfully unlock to 6970)
HAF X Case (Due to its vast space and WC mountings)
Coolermaster 750Watt PSU


I am looking at going for a WC setup with this but have no clue what to go with and what I need, I'm not sure what rads, blocks and reservoirs are good. Could someone point me in the right direction of what I need to purchase?


Regards
Steve

Well what i would recommend is googling around the net and see what build logs are around with your case and hardware.;)

Hi,

Welcome to the forum :D

As Andy has pointed out, your first consideration should be how you will fit a radiator/s into your case. The roof looks the easiest option but the molding on the top may cause problems.

The components you will need are;

CPU water block
GPU water block (if you plan on water cooling this)
radiator (preferably a 3 x 120mm)
pump
reservoir (or a pump/reservoir combo)
Hose
Hose fittings
fans
coolant.

Have a browse though the shop to get an idea of what there is and the cost (water cooling is not cheap :( ).

Once you have an idea of what you want to cool and your budget, we can probably give you some recommendations.

HTH

The haf-x will take a 120.3 in the roof, on the inside. but you lose the top bay. There's a great build log on the OcUK forums of a watercooled haf-x.
