Windows 7: suggestion for liquid cooling

suggestion for liquid cooling

Hi,
I'm going to move from air cooling to liquid cooling.

I'm going to start from changing the CPU cooler because my i7 3770k runs too hot for me when is 100% loaded. Then in future I think I'll add a waterblock to my GTX 690.

So, what I need to build a liquid cooling system? Have you got any suggestion for components?

Here is a start for you

Water Cooling guide

Do you want a custom setup, or would a sealed system work for you. Depending on what your case can fit, you go go with a dual or single rad. I use the Antec 920 (single Rad) and it does very good.
Also have a read through here

Well yes, but there are books written on that subject. For your components, you may be limited by the size of your case, in what it will hold. A good starting point may be an XSPC kit. They are decent kits with everything you need and can be expanded in the future. A good guide is Water Cooling guide which will give you the basics.

Can I start using a single radiator and then upgrading to more than one? How I power them?

With an All in one cooler, they are not expandable except for probably the Swiftech H220, which are not sold in many places. The size of your case will determine what size radiator will fit in it, you also have to have room for a pump and a reservoir, or give up 2 of your 5.25" bays for the reservoir and pump. There are very few mid tower cases that are considered 'good' water cooling cases, simply because of space constraints. I would highly recommend you do a lot of research beffore considering custom water cooling, and be ready to spend a lot of money. How much depends on what you want and how you want it to look. Buy quality parts and not cheap ones.

I think i need liquid cooling for CPU and GPU, possibly with tubes like these:

OK, i see it is too much expensive for me Only the gtx 690 waterblock costs 110 euros...

So all i need is a better CPU cooling for good overclocks and low temps. Cooler Master Hyper TX3 EVO sucks a bit.

I decided: I'll make a custom water cooling system for my Core i7 3770K.

So I need a Reservoir, a Pump, a Radiator, a CPU Water block and tubes. My case is in sign.
All suggestion are appreciated.

Unless you`re dead set on doing a custom loop job, save yourself a lot of headaches and just get this, it works perfectly.

Thermaltake CLW0217 Water 2.0 Extreme/All-In-One Liquid Cooling System - Newegg.com

I replaced the Thermaltake fans with these.

Newegg.com - Corsair Air Series SP120 (CO-9050014-WW) 120mm PWM High Performance Edition High Static Pressure Fan (Twin Pack)

There are a ton of videos on youtube of custom water loops, it`s complicated and takes expertise and a lot of patience, if you`ve never built one, you may wanna think twice about doing it.
