I am brand new to watercooling and has absolutely no experience with it, but i have become intruiged by it, and feel like i have to try it out.
Now i am looking at buying my first watercooling system, and was wondering if i could get some feedback on the components i have chosen to buy - weather or not i should get something else etc.
My primary concern i noise, tho i like to overclock moderately, but i am not looking for max performance, but for as much noise elimination as possible, while having a decent oc going...
My system is as follows:
CPU: Core 2 duo e6600
Mobo: Intel e975xbx
Ram: Corsair Dominator TWIN2X2048-8500C5D ram
GFX: XFX GeForce 7950 GT 512MB DDR3 HDCP (passivly cooled)
I am considering watercooling cpu & nb and leave the gfx card with it's passive cooler since noise is my main concern and i don't really need to overclock the gfx card. I could leave the nb passivly cooled, but with my current OC test (with the system currently being air cooled) it seems to me that the nb gets awefully hot, and is probably the reason why i can't overclock the system very much.
The following items are the ones i have conseidered buying:
cpublock: Heatkiller CPU LGA775
nbblock: Heatkiller NB Intel
pump: Laing DDC-PRO
rad: ThermoChill PA160.1
fittings: 1/2" BSPP brass
hose: ClearFLEX 60 Premium 1/2 ID
My idea is to make a loop without a t-line, insetad of resevoir, since from what i have read around here and otherplaces, it seems to be the way to go, even tho the bleeding part sux
So how does this setup sound for a complete newbie who want's a nice quiet system with a moderate oc?
I am hoping to be able to hit 3.7 -4Ghz with the setup, my current aitcooling setup runs 3.3ghz as it's max with the ram running 460Mhz @ 4:5 (using a thermalright ultra120 heatsink with a nexus realsilent 120mm fan the cpu hits 64C at maxload, nb hits 51C)
