So, My name is Justin, I am new to the modding world and the forum as well. I just have a few questions and would love some insight or even personal opinion on what options are open to me and what I could do the make my computer, when i do build it in the next couple months, more aesthetically pleasing and perform better.
I guess I should throw out what I will be using as far as internal hardware goes:
Case: I went with the Corsair Carbide 540, Arctic White.
Motherboard: EVGA X99 FTW Intel Extended
Processor: Intel i7-5820K Haswell-E 6 Core 3.3GHz
Graphics Card: EVGA GeForce 980 Superclocked / EVGA GeForce 970
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (4x4) SDRAM DDR4 2666
Hard Drive: Corsair Force LS 240GB SATA III (2 of them)
Power Supply: EVGA SuperNOVA 1000W Full Modular
What I want (or need) to do is I want to make this a water cooled system. What are the guidelines, if any, that I have to follow to set it all up correctly? What types of tubing are there out there, and which would you say is good, but fairly easy to install for a beginner modder? Are there Different types of liquids that keep the system cooler and last longer?
Any other tips or pointers you all have for me, either based on what differences I should make to the hardware or if there are better parts for around the price that I am looking at, and any other advice on things I could do to make this the beast that I would love to see it become, all would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!
