Default A WC for my son

Hi everyone, for my first treat I would like to have some opinion on an WC rig I want to build mainly for my 6 years old son, and at the same time have some friend play with it when they came to visit me, I will also make some testing with OC with this PC, but only light to moderate one. Iím thinking to go with an ATI video. I want also use 3 WC circuit, 1- CPU, 2- NB, 3- Video card, the Video and NB will have simple rad, and the CPU a dual one. I will fix the rad on the 4 x 120 mm port on top of the back of the case.

I have here the list of what I have already,

Case Mozart
Asus Maximus Extreme
1200 Power supply
Swiftech Apogee GTX Cpu Bloc
WDC 500 Gb ( will be change )
WDC raptor 34 Gb use for the swap file
2 x Dual Channel PC10600 DDR3 1333MHz Memory.
1 Swifech dual rad
1 Swiftech single rad
1 Thermaltake 120 single rad with pump

a single triple will be more than enough if you go with something like the pa120.3 for your cooling needs.

oh and thats one lucky 6 yr old.

That my opinion, but i think 3 loop with be expensive for nothing, you can only build 1 loop and save the cost of 2 pump and a good 120.3 can do the job for everything

Thanks enaberif, I update my post, I have already the 3 rad and 1 pump for the thermaltake , I will use this one for the NB since the barb are smaller.

My son is lucky yes, but this system will serve also as demonstrator and for OC test. I own a computer shop, unfortunately I mainly made pc for business customer ( Intel board, intel cpu cooler, nothing very interesting )

Whatever you do, throw that Thermaltake pump in the garbage please. You'll regret using it very quickly.

Stick to Laing/Swiftech pumps.
