Hi!
I'm planning to build a water cooled system using Aqua Computer parts as much as possible. This will be my first water cooled rig. The parts will be purchased in 2 phases due to finances. These are the parts which I plan on getting initially:

Phase I

Case.....Lian-Li PC-G75B
Mobo....Maximus Formula SE
Radiator....Danger Den Black Ice GTX Xtreme (3 x 120mm fans)
Pump....Danger Den DDC-12V REV3.2
Reservoir....Aquabay
Aqua Tube
Aquatube LED Mounting Cap
Blue LED
Tubemeter
CPU Waterblock......Cuplex XT Double Impact
GPU Waterblock......AquagraFX NVIDIA 8800 GTX
Plug&Cool 8mm Fittings...14
Aquastream 3.5" Monitoring Device
Tubing..............7 ft Tygon Premium 3/8" ID
Coolant.............Zertex

Layout will be as follows:

Pump-->Rad-->CPU-->NB-->GPU-->Res-->Pump

1. Will this be enough to get me started?
2. Any suggestions for improving what I have?
3. Where can I get Plug&Cool connectors?
4. Would you suggest a different pump and tubing then the one I have?

Phase II  (later on)

Flow Control Sensor & Cable
Thermal Control System
Aquajet
Thermal Sensor
Vario Dual LED
Aquaero Power Connector ATX Standby Relay Cable
Monitor......Aquaero VFD
Control......Multiswitch
Aquastream Controller Board - V3.5
Cable Connector.....Aquabus
Aquaero to Aquastream Cable

Any help would be greatly appreciated!  :) I live in the U.S if that makes any difference such as obtaining parts.

Why do you want to use a Dangerden Rad and a Dangerdenpump?

The rest is really okay. But these two could be an Aquastream Xt and a Airplex xt 360.

I'm not sure about your tubing choice. In order for it to be compatible with plug & cool fittings it has to be of the "PUR" type, which is much stiffer/harder with more exacting outer tolerances.

I have never used a dremmel before and don't have the experience to mod a case. So I bought the case with the radiator built in from a US site. It was the only brand they offered. The barbs are 3/8" so that shouldn't be a problem.
As for the choice of pump I was informed that the original AC choice would be too weak based on the rad/loop setup I had. I will be more then happy to modify anything in the setup except for the case and and radiatior. It's a done deal and on it's way here so I can't change it. :-/ I read on the [H]ard forums on the Aquastream XT. I'll wait for Sharka to stock it and place an order. I really need help with the tubing and fittings. Don't have a real clue as to how much tubing to order or the correct type. I listed Tygon because that's what I hear alot at the ExtremeOverclocking Forums. It would help me alot if someone could provide me a link to the correct tube and correct size as well as the fittings. My experience with the metric system is limited as I'm from the U.S. but am willing to learn. ;)

My setup has a radiator with 3/8" barbs and the mobo has a built in waterblock on the North Bridge with 3/8" barbs. My question is what is the best tubing and fittings for this setup. Other forums say I should use 8/6mm plug and cool tubing but will that go with the 3/8" barb setup I have? ???

The sensible option is to stick to the same type of connectors throughout the whole system. Otherwise, you'll require converters, which in itself isn't such a problem with only diameter changes. However, going from barbs to plug & cool fittings will also require the hassle of adding different and not directly compatible tubing types.

In other words, your fittings will dictate the tubing type.

you cant plug 8/6 tubing on the maximus formulas Se.
Did you already bought the board? If not go and look at the hydgrogen by msi.

If you already bought the board youl will have to got with some 10/8mm tubing to include the fusion block into you setup. In this case I would say go with this 10/8mm tubing and 1/4g plugs through all of your setup.

Okay if read your post again......

You need one fthe right fittings for this things.
I dont know a shop in the usa for watercooling parts plz give me a link or something.


In case for an english shop here for you:
This tubing would be good:
http://www.aqua-pcs.co.uk/xspc-108mm-pvc-tubing-678-p.asp

This connectors/ fittings:
http://www.aqua-pcs.co.uk/108mm-compression-fittings-231-c.asp
You need two of them for every cooler/ rad/tank in your system.
And you need two adapters for the aquastream with the adapters you can fit 1/4g fittings into the pum. I cant find them anywhere....

gr3if, I appreciate all the help you're giving me here. Here is the link to Sharka Computers. They are the sole distributors for AC here in the U.S. This is the links for the fittings.

If this doesn't help please let me know. Thank you very much. ;D

I think the NB waterblock is removable on this mobo. Would it be helpful if I removed it and used an AC one to help with the tubing and fitting compatability? Would it also be helpful if I changed the barbs on the radiator to another size as well?

I think this is the link on the Sharka Computers website that has the 10/8mm fittings. Was this what you were referring to?

Okay here we go ;D

First you have to look at the fittings you can screw into the blocks. To go with one size in your setup i would go with 1/4g fittings. The other thing is the tubing size the fittings can use. Normally for ac this would be 8/6mm tubing. I would recommend 10/8 tubing because these can be attached on your mobo.

So you need this for your Radiator

Then this for the pump:
http://www.sharkacomputers.com/eh10pumexfit.html
http://www.sharkacomputers.com/ininexscfore.html

Then this one for the Xt Di:
http://www.sharkacomputers.com/aqco8xcostfi.html
two times.

Then this one for the aquatube (you will get the one with 1/4g?): 2x http://www.sharkacomputers.com/aqco8xcostfi.html

Then this one for the Aquagrafx:
2x http://www.sharkacomputers.com/aqcocofi8x1w.html

And for tubing this one:
http://www.sharkacomputers.com/clpvctu3idx1.html

This would fit togheter and you can connect all parts in one size.

Awesome!! Thank you very very much gr3if. That is exactly what I needed to know. Just got my case with the mounted rad and PSU in today. WOOT! Now all I have to do is wait for the Aquastream XT to come to the U.S. I guess I can order my Aquatube and Aquabay and start to set them up in the meantime. Two questions though:

1. When the new Aquastream XT comes out will I still use the same pump fittings?
2. And how much feet of tubing do you think I should get for my setup.


Re: Please evaluate my setup. First time at this.

Mittwoch, 14. November 2007, 11:48

1. Yes the same size.
2. get a bit more tubing then you think you need. I would go with 3 or 4 meters. The tubing is the cheapest thing.
