Thinking of going for a full custom loop. Thinking of moving all my current stuff out of my Air 540 (see specs <<) into a Fractal Design R5. I love the Air 540 but it just doesn't do what I want to achieve in terms of water cooling (ie, not enough space at the front for a thick rad or at the top). Here are the components I plan on buying.... ANY ADVICE OR TIPS ARE ALL WELCOME! XSPC RayStorm CPU WaterBlock - Intel 115x, 1366 and 2011 Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 240mm Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 280mm 2x EK-FC970 GTX TF5 - Nickel XSPC 7/16 ID, 5/8 OD High Flex 2m (Retail Coil) - CLEAR XSPC Nylon Dual 5.25 Reservoir Inc Laing D5 Vario/Tacho - Black XSPC Coin Fit V2 - G1/4 to 7/16 ID 5/8 OD Compression Fitting - Black Chrome XSPC G1/4, 90 Degree Rotary Fitting - Black Chrome and to top it off a couple of bottles of this EK Water Blocks EK-Ekoolant EVO Blood RED (Premix 1L) Have I missed anything off the list? Are silver coils really needed? And how to they work exactly? This is how I plan to house all this in the Fractal Design R5 Will these rads be enough to cool this components? Also will the pump/res combo be strong enough to power a good flowrate around the loop? My idea of using the res/pump drive bay combo was to the keep the inside of the case tidy, and easier to build in. So as not to have a large res and then also have to mount a pump separate. Thanks in advance for any advice, this is not 100% certain that I am doing this just had an urge and an idea after watching some youtube videos lol Not even sure if the EK MSI 970 waterblock will fit my 970's as I have not checked the revision on them yet.
