Default Water Cooling Budget Slashed

My overzealous water cooling plan of water cooling the CPU (E5200) and video cards got slashed in half due to a revamped budget. So it looks like I'm going to just be putting the CPU under water. So here is the parts list I have come up with.

Swiftech Apogee GTZ LGA775 CPU Water Block
Swiftech MCR220 Quiet Power Dual 120mm Radiator
2x Scythe Slip Steam Kaze Jyuni 120mm Fans
Swiftech MCP665-B 12v Pump
Swiftech MCRES-Micro Clear Hi-Flow Reservoir
Feser One Feser Tube UV Orange 3/8" ID 1/2" OD
3pkgs of Danger Den G1/4 to 3/8IN High Flow Barbs

Total - $267.90

My only question is can the 1/2 barbs on the MCP665-B be replaced?

Not without an aftermarket pump head.

Have a look at this pump.... NCIX.com - Buy Danger Den DDCPX-PRO 12V Water Cooling Pump with Mounting Hardware 1/2IN Chrome Barb Fittings - DD-CPX-PRO In Canada.

Ships with both 1/2 & 3/8 chrome barbs, and the flow rates are absolutely amazing!!!!

I'd say Yates (from Petra), S-FLEX or ZM-F3s for the radiator instead. Slipstream don't really have great pressure for rad usage.

Otherwise it looks good, other than the pump which was already said.

Steve: thanks that pump is cheaper than the MCP665-B

phil3_66666: The 3/8" tub flows faster and easier to get tight bends without kinking.

The only thing I'm not keen on with that pump is the mounting mechanism. I'm going to just swap it out for velcro. :)

Velcro eh? Sounds like a good idea. I may pick some up at my local Wally World.

If you really want to have a complete wc setup, I just may be able to help you. Figure out how much that EK 9600 block will cost you, then send me a PM. I have a few parts in which you may be interested.
