I guys,

I'm new to watercooling. I bought a pc a while back. It's a fairly decent PC. Has two gtx580's in SLI. 16gb of ram. I'm not too concerned about the CPU cooling because it has COOLIT ECO II C240 DUAL RADIATOR CPU COOLER. Not sure how good these are. Anyway, I would like to watercool it but I have no knowledge and I'm afraid of leakage. Does anybody know of a company that will do it for me? Or anybody offering those services?

I've emailed watercoolinguk to check if they do this, but still waiting on a reply.

Thanks,

Bruno

What case have you got?
You will need a couple of these blocks, or similar, depending on your budget

two 580 in sli will need at least a 360 rad

Some tubing

Some fittings.

A pump reservoir combo.

Some coolant, 2 should do.

Now that should get you sorted. :-)

Or you could buy pre water cooled case.
You can at least see what the sort of cost will entail. ;-)

Hi Andy, Packer,

I have a HAF-X.

Thanks for the info. I'm afraid to actually build it.

Thanks,

Bruno

Building is fun,you have to start sometime,if you want a watercooled rig.

Just start with small modding,then it just comes natural,like riding a bike :)

hi rebelpk, firstly welcome to this great forum. You are like me a few years ago (without the high end pc bits ) i gained advice from these guys and built the setup myself, so if i can do it...even though it wasnt the best way of doing the tubing etc, i was still able to come up with a system that NEVER leaked. It was easy to deal with any bubbles, troubleshoot and fill up. all whilst gaining more advice, even having the mickey taken out of me because of how i had done the tubbing :)

 

the cpu cooler is a "cool" idea, i have just built a "new" system based on the previous socket 775 simply because its what i could afford and ive just applied the Antec KUHLER H2O 620 PC Liquid Cooling System and since the room is warm because of the old style bulb and the cpu is a q6600 and oc'd to 3.8. it gets hot. however under load its been doing around 55-62.

 

so whilst its been doing ok, even after a week after building it, its reminded me WHY its better to go for a watercooled system and not a "built" in system, simply because your likely to gain the temps under load load of around 48 i believe .

 

would be nice to see some shots of the system.

 

heres my current build
