Hi. I bought Graphic Card and waterblock with backplate. Now I need to buy, pump, cooler, reservoir,fitings,pipes,and liquid.(I would like to Wc only GPU)

 

My Case is Zalman ms800 Plus. There is possibility to mount 2 x fans on top 120mm or 140mm.
 

 

First question I would like to buy Black Ice Nemesis GTX 280. Is fiting of cooler is in the same place as for fans "120mm or 140mm"? Only what I can see its "Standard M4 mounting threads"

 

Second question. EK Water Blocks EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 PWM - Glass (incl. Pump) I have read that if im going to Wc just GPU or CPU. I dont need more power than 2.5m. Most of pump with top and reservoir have more than 3,5m. So I was thinking about to buy one of these and just decrease power by PWM. But it says I need Adapter/Terminal. I have PWM controller on Case to control fans. I upload the image of Manual. Cables from controller have only two wires green and yellow. Can I use this? Or mabye Just better buy WCUK Spec XSPC D5 Vario inc Acrylic Tank Reservoir V3
 

Im real noob in this. This will be the first time I do WC.

 

The items I would like to buy

-Cooler

Black Ice Nemesis GTX 280

 

-Pump/Reservoir

EK Water Blocks EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 PWM - Glass (incl. Pump) or WCUK Spec XSPC D5 Vario inc Acrylic Tank Reservoir V3

Hey there, with just the GPU under water you should be fine with either of those pump/res setup's although the xspc res is kind of small.

 

Just keep an eye on fitting sizes and you should be good to go.

 

I have a question about your GPU, which manufactuer / model / version is it?
