i built the following pc:
Intel Core i7-3960X Extreme Edition
CORSAIR H100 Liquid CPU Cooler
G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 64GB (8 x 8G DDR3 2133
ASUS Rampage IV Extreme LGA 2011 Intel X79 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Intel Motherboard
Crucial M4 256GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
2x Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s Internal Hard Drives Raid 0
2x SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 CrossFireX Video Cards x16/x16
COOLER MASTER HAF X Blue Edition Tower Case
COOLER MASTER 1200W CrossFire Ready Power Supply
that is the basics of it and it cost me alot. i want to protect this investment. as you can see it has a corsair water cooler. i want to replace that corsair water cooler because i am actually scared of it. so far it works well and is mounted at the top inside of the case where there are additional fans. i am scared of this cooler from horror stories of them leaking and these have distilled water. i would prefer running a non-conductive coolant in my coolers thus i am about to try to build a water cooler for this machine.
i been building pcs a long time but this is my first water cooled machine just because i am scared of running water in my pc .. so i need to find some advice on building a good water cooling system. i already have a couple big bottles of feser green non-conductive coolant. now i need to design a water cooler system and know where to purchase my hardware for this because i buy all my pc hardware at newegg and i do not think they stock what is needed .
i will post what i am thinking of a design but i really would like some expert help from you guys if possible. also i am looking to build a high quality system that i can rely on. i will move this corsair over to my older phenom quad-core desktop .. try to overlook my wimpy vid cards in my new build above i will replace those soon .. thanks everyone .
