-Ixnay on the fan-choice. Those fans are specifically designed for open-case use, not restrictive applications like heatsinks or radiators. THESE would be the proper (Noctua) fans for a radiator.

-That GPU waterblock only covers the core of the GPU, and will require additional heatsinks on the other components. (Example)

-No need to order from Jab-Tech for the fittings. Fittings like THESE will work just fine.

-You don't say what it is you're trying cool - might be some issues depending.
Edit: Gotcha. Nothing jumps to mind in the way of adaptors required here.

I'd use 45 degree fitting instead of 90 degrees if possible, to improve flow.

You mounting radiator outside? Which case?

Z Overlord June 5, 2009 09:46 PM

Sorry for lack of info

I'm only WCing the cpu and gpu, and I'm using a hotspot for my chipset. I'm mounting the radiator outside my Antec 1200 case (So double rad is fine?)

Fan wise, Scythe S-FLEX or Zalman ZM-F3. Unless you want to buy $20 Noctua P12s. Up to you.

And pass on the 90 degree plastic things. Absolutely horrible. Try without anything first and see how it goes, then if it kinks, look into some Bitspower 45 degree fittings.

Might want to consider this for the GPU since it covers the RAM and MOSFETs: NCIX.com - Buy Swiftech MCW60-4870 GPU Water Block for ATI Radeon 4870 Cools GPU RAM & Mosfet 1/2 & 3/8 Fittings - MCW60-4870 In Canada. Though I'd check the compatibility list just to make sure or email Swiftech if you have doubts.

well this guy I talked to said that the HD4890 has a red plate that can be used for the other gpu block that I posted.:sad:

Z Overlord June 7, 2009 02:55 PM

So, uh ,what'd you think?

Dazmode June 7, 2009 03:02 PM

Are you asking overall or something specific?

Oops, I didn't post the updated list lol, it's attached to the post now. How's it look? Don't worry about the gpu block not covering the whole card though, I got that covered. Any suggestions? Any problems in it I might not see? I'm also new to WC so I don't know what exact products are popular for their quality. Is there some good clear tubing? Does my liquid glow or is it blue? Does it have biocide? And what are some good 45 degree thing instead?

I live in the US btw.
