I had a system setup but using the pump at the bottom of the case, this was o.k. most of the time until it came to replacing the fluid as this would be a nightmare to bleed.

I want to get a reserviour with built in pump and want to know if this setup would be o,.k.

I need a water block for a intel 1155 socket and sapphire ATI 6870 GPU.

I've attached a quick pic just made in paint, i'm sure my son could of done a better job but you should tell what sort of setup i'm after..

Would it be o.k.

Or would another 120mm cooler be better between the GPU and CPU? I don't intend to OC the GPU.

I wanted to go with 3/8" as I had a 19mm system the last time and the hoses aren't as easy to flex around the case..

Also I noticed on another thread some one stated not to mix the blocks as they contain different metals, why shouldn't you mix them?

Ye that setup will be fine.
Looks like you're after a res/pump combo drivebay set up.
This should be enough,as your not going to O/C your rig much.

Or take your pick from these.Depends on your cash flow ;)

A very popular CPU block,but again depends on your wallet.

This is a very popular size tube and is very flexible.

Hi,

I second Andy's selection.

On the metals thing, it's only a concern is you mix copper (this includes brass and nickel) with aluminium as they can set off a reaction known as galvanic corrosion. This acts in a similar way to electrolysis. If you keep all the rads, water blocks in the copper, nickel or brass group then there's no problem.

Like I said the last rig I did was with the 19mm hose, will 3/8th not do a good enough job? is the 5/8th smaller, I think the 19mm was 1/2" inside diametre.

What about a GPU block for the Sapphire 6870?

There is this one;

BUt £77 is a bit pricy.

The misses has waved the whip and wants a new computer desk and the PC will be out the way so I would want the GPU cooled.

The material is; Electrolytic copper, stainless steel, POM, would this be o.k. with the the CPU cooler. I have CPU Block from my old build which is a DangerDen Cooper base would this be o.k. with this GPU cooler.

Cheers.

The 3/8" hosing will be fine. In reality there's very little difference between the 3/8" and 1/2"(19mm) in performance terms, just as you say, the 3/8" is easier to work with in tight spaces.

The only alternative to the full cover block is a Universal GPU only water block like THIS. The advantage of these are they can be moved to new cards as you upgrade. The disadvantage is that you will need to provide some supplementary cooling to the VRMs and memory using some heatsinks
