I am in the process of designing my new build and I would like this one to be as silent as possible. I know liquid would help with that so im looking at liquid cooling.Anyone who liquid cools, any tips for a noob and his first time liquid cooling? Also, where would you buy your parts from. I know theres danger den and frozen cpu, but where else? I've helped friends liquid cool. So I understand you want to leak test, bleed, etc. This will just be my first time doing it.
So far, my loop will be res > pump > cpu > radiator > gpu > res. I think it makes sense because I would like the water to cool off from the cpu before going to gpu, instead of carrying the cpu heat through the gpu. If im wrong please correct me. I also know I want 3/8 because its common and easier to deal with. I also want compression fittings because screw clamps.
My case will be big a full tower, so im not worried about space. I will be getting Corsair SP 120 Quiet Edition fans to put on the rad and wherever needed. The rad will be a 4 x 120 rad. I would also like to do a push pull through the rad just so the water is as cool as possible. I plan on overclocking. I dont know if im going Intel or AMD yet, but whatever processor I go, ill be overclocking. The GPU will be a EVGA 780 hydro copper edition.
Thats all I have for you guys, if im missing anything please ask. Try to get this thing completely designed and built digitally and have an idea of it before buying all the parts and building it. Still plan on building the computer first week of october, but I have a feeling It might happen sooner because im impatient.
