Recommendations for watercooling loop

Braindamage

Hello guys,

Can you recommend me,please, parts to build a good watercooling loop? Around 200 pounds or less. For my 3770k maximus v formula vrm and maybe for a future gpu. My case is 650D

I would prefer parts from EK and XSPC because only those brands i can find on uk sites that can ship to my country

Thanks

XSPC has kits with everything you need to get started down this path of a money pit.
It sure is fun though.

This XSPC kit is pretty good
I like the CPU block too - lights up blue IIRC- looks fantastic

If you want to run GPU on this loop you prob wanna get a bigger rad tho - or get two rads, depending on how much space is in your case

Watercooling is expensive, I doubt you will be able to custom cool both of those components on such a small budget.
These loops can be added to at a later stage, and for the price you are quoting would not result in much more than the CPU being cooled for that price.

Ideally you want 240mm per OC component, so yeah this is lacking the radiotor space required and more importantly the extra fittings and tubing + block to cool the GPU. But fot that you will not need the pump and reseviour as you would have gotten it with this first kit.

That page and site has a good selection of starter kits in the UK.

Your case would struggle to mount a single 240mm rad without modification, so yeah you may well want a new case unless you intend to mod your own or mount the rads externally.

Hmmm ok guys thanks!!
Any case that can accommodate 2 rads or more? And its compatible with maximus v formula??? At reasonable price always 😛

Get the biggest rads you can fit in your case, there is no such thing as to much cooling capacity.

I would skip cooling the motherboard, the waterblock on the formula is crap. And the block is probably pretty restrictive.

EDIT: If you want a big case at a good price, have a look at the xigmatek elysium. I have one myself and I'm very happy with it, running one ek 360 XTX up top and a ek 480 XTX in the front.
