Default New to liquid cooling, need advice on possible loop

So im looking to possibly go liquid, so I can get a more impressive clock out of my 920, and 580 whenever eVGA decides its my turn (#560 lol). Anyone have any recommendations, and possible recommended parts?

Budget is about $250 at most.

GPU is only a issue in 3 or so months when I get my 580 from eVGA.

I like lowfat's list. I would be tempted to go with a thicker rad like the RX360 if you have the room, and I really don't know anything about the EK pump. If it's as good as the rest of their products it should be ok, but I am a fan of the D5/655 pumps. But those changes would take you closer to $300.


Watercooling gets very expensive very fast if you're as dumb as I am lol. I spent almost $250 on compression fittings alone My build that was supposed to be $2500 ended up over 4k. Be thankful I'm not an accountant I guess.

I'd say forget it. You closest bet is RASA kit for $150.

Or try to collect used bits and pieces locally.
