    I just phrchased a black ice gt stealth 240mm radiator. It has no instruction or labels on the radiator to tell me which connection port is inlet or outlet. Does it matter which port is in or out?

    the inlet or outlet usually doesnt matter. why use such a thin rad. going to need kazes panaflos or deltas to get the cooling efficiency you want

    Thats the only radiator that seems to fit inside my CM 690 II Advance case without any custom mod. Will this radiator be sufficient to cool a GTX 590?

    No its not


    Just take the bottom drive cage out and put a big 240 in there. Just comes apart.
    240 will cool your card just fine.

    Top 240 Rad optional

    i would get a 240rx rad in my opinion
    the person who posted his 800D(if it is his) is wasting rad to the fullest extent. all you need is a 240 rad to cool the cpu. your ambient temps will great depict what temps you get for s cpu and gpu. assuming if have an adequate rad for cooling

    So here are the list of parts for my first W/C build when I get back:
    CPU: EK-SUPREMACY-AC (compatible w/ Intel LGA-1155/1156, 1366, 2011, AMD 939, 754, 940, AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+)
    Top Rad: Alphacool NexXxos ST30 full copper 360 (going to use NB eLoop B12-2 in push/pull)
    Bot Rad: Alphacool Nexxos UT60 240 or XT45 240 depending on my setup (also, going to use my cougar vortex fans in push/pull).
    Res/Pump: Koolance RP-401X2 Single 5.25" Reservoir for 1-2 PMP-400 Pumps (going with 1 pump but if that's not enough it has an opt for another pump). Went with this because I wanted single 5.25" buy resevoir for space reason.
    Connectors: Koolance Quick Disconnects High Flow
    Fan Cntlr: Bitfenix Recon 5 Channel Mobile Device Controlled Fan Controller (I don't like the built in controller on the 600t)
    Tubing: PrimoChill (color will be figured out later)

    ** GPU will be EK** (as of right now I don't know if i'm going to keep my 2x 6950 xfire setup or upgrade to the latest and greatest thing when I get back.

    That is pretty much what I'm looking at hardware wise is there anything I might be forgetting? Oh and all this is going to be powered by my corsair 850.

    this is very useful though its 2013 and i would like to note that there are now 1/2 by 3/4 compression fittings i just ordered them from them shop with a xspc ax240 kit so yea you can order them with a prefab kit now as well or at least an xspc from performance pc as far as i know. i would have went diy but that costs more thank to amazon hiking prces up for black friday sales the prefab came out to be cheaper now lol then i bought the extra stuff separate i went 1/2 by 3/4 and got gtx 660 block from ek now to get a custom bios lol
