Hi All, 


I'm very new to watercooling but I've decided to give it a go. 


I'm looking at the kit on the home page just now. 




Would this be suitable to run in my current system and effectively cool an overclocked i5 Skylake CPU? 


Case =  InWin 303 

Mobo = MSI Z170 

CPU = I5 6600K

GPU = 1070 GTX


Would 1 litre of coolant be enough for the whole loop? 


Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Yes it looks fine to me you might want to go for a 130mm radiator if your going to overclock it, I would also recommend IC Diamond thermal paste it's the best there is for reliability and cooling temps.



    There's ALWAYS room for a quad rad!

6600k TDP is 91W standard. That kit will be fine at cooling this to a good delta level. 


As above, depending on the extremity of your overclock, you MAY need additional/better cooling. 


Give it a go though and just keep an eye on your temperatures.


Let us know how you get on.


For some inspiration going forward, here is a picture found with a quick google. I'm guessing this has 2 360mm radiators in there(the one in your kit is 240mm) so you've got plenty of room for expanding down the line without changing case :)
