Hi, again me for another water cooling project

My question are about pump,

Cpu-apogee gt maybe another one...
gpu-4870 full cover or maybe a normal swiftech block
pa 120.2 or swiftech 120.2
**maybe add swiftech 120.1

The MCP-350 (or 355) is more than enough, res-top or not. Here's my setup:

XSPC res
355
PA120.2
GTZ
Stock Extreme NB block
DD Tieton 1
DD Tieton 2

The 350/355 will be more than enough, but I'd look at adding some rad to your setup... a 120.2 simply isn't enough for a cpu and gpu.

The xspc top is nice, there are other good ones out there too, but you can't go wrong with xspc.

The tubing doesn't make much difference. I always recommending going for 1/2 ID, but if you need to make some tight bends, or if you have small case, 3/8 ID will be fine.

Laisse moi savoir si tu veut que je traduit ;) Bonne chance!

I'd trust 3.0charlie on this one... he knows more about WCing than most do about computers in general..

+1

If you run the fans well enough on the swiftech you will be able to handle the output. Your delta might not be great but it will manage. Just don't expect to put your temps to extreme lows.

Judging by that picture, it looks like you are running a 120.2 (pull) to cool an i7, north bridge and 2 cards in SLI... am I mistaken? Please tell me I'm mistaken...

No, you're not - except for the pull part: the fans are in push config (Scythe 38mms)

Kudos on the fans, I wish I had the space to run those bad boys... but that dual doesn't seem like it could handle the heat you're generating: the i7, 260s, NB... especially if you've OC'd them. Am I mistaken, again? ;) Care to share some temps/test results?
