    Afternoon all,

    I am planning on building a/my first watercooling loop in a case and just wanted an independant review of my components/plan, the loop I am planning is this:

    Reservoir - Aquatube (mine is aluminium with an aquajet)
    Pump - D5 Inc Top
    Radiator 1 - Phobya G-Changer 240mm (older one in just black)
    Graphics Card - Card Block
    Radiator 2 - Nexxos ST30 240
    CPU - EK Supremacy

    The loop is going to be monsoon Hardline with fittings and filled with pastel white mayhems.

    Any advice/feedback welcomed

    Solid choices apart from the Aquatube. Although the aluminium res is anodised it only needs a pin ***** in it to start corrosion with the copper components in the loop. Screwing in a fitting is enough to potentially damage the anodising.

    If you're planning on using some form of anti-corrosion additive then any potential corrosion will be delayed but not totally stopped.

    If you like that style of res then they used to make a delrin version that may be worth tracking down.

    Thanks Big Elf - kinda what I thought after reading it up (after I bought it of course)... also thinking I need to get a mounting pad for the pump

    The rig will be going in a Parvum case - so I have a bit of saving up to do before it is built completely.
