Hi all im new on here and also new to water cooling!! Iv been wanting to do it for a couple years now but have never gotten around to it. i would like some help on choosing the right parts to water cool my pc! so here is my set up:


Antec 1200 case

Intel i7 2600k

MSI HD 7970 OC Edition

Asus P8P67


I understand there is a 200mm radiator from antec that i would like to include in the loop. i would like my CPU and graphics card and maybe the ram in the loop. i have overclocked my i7 to 4.3Ghz but heat is my limit at the moment. i also intend to try and over clock my graphics card a little more but again i don't want the heat issues. So any help with parts would be much appreciated. I do understand that the Antec 1200 case is a bit of a pain for watercooling but im prepared for a little modding :)

You will really struggle to fit  radiators in that case,most modded cases have had there radiators placed externally.

Forget about ram cooling,you wont gain much,plus you ain't got much room in there.

You can mount a 360 rad in the front and a 240 rad in the roof.

I would have 1 loop like this. res, pump, rad, gpu, cpu, rad,


As for parts.well money will depend on your choices.

radiators,need to be measured for thickness to make sure they fit in your case.

Don't forget you will need to add fans to it,which will add at least 25mm.


this would save space as it's all in one res/pump.i use them all the time.



Radiators.360 for the front.Try and find one that has multiple inlets and outlets,which make your loop easier to fit.



top rad,240mm.




I usually go for low noise fans with a decent amount of air flow.

Loads to choose from.




this is very common.




Most people use compression,due to the looks and ease of fitting.

They can get expensive,but these are coming popular.plus you will need some angled fittings.



Cpu Block.

This is my choice,.



Gpu Block

This is a very snazzy one.




Depending on your theme and colour.



Ok tha's JUST A ROUGH GUIDE to your parts.

Money and style will be your final choice.


A photo showing that you can mount 240mm rad in roof.



and the front rad,just page down a bit to the fitting.



Well that should give you some idea of cost and whats involved.

Good luck :wink:
