Hi all, Im new to watercooling but not new to SPCR or computers. Im currently running a 2600+ (333) with an SLK-900A, cooled by a 92mm silenx fan. My vid card is a 9500n\p (softmodded to 9700pro) with a rev 1. VGA silencer. Not much more in terms of periferals, just 2 optical drives, SB Live, TV tuner card, Coolmax Taursus 400W PSU, 2 HD's, and 2 80mm papst case fans (running at 9V). I have been lurking around all of the watercooling boards (especially this one!), and have got an idea for my new setup. Tell me what you think:

Ehiem 1048 Pump
DangerDen RBX (or Maze 4) CPU Block
Dangerden Maze 4 GPU block
5 1\4 res.
1991 lumina heater core (ive got that already, fits 1x120 and 1\2ID tubing and homemade shroud)
1\2ID tubing

Im not going to put a NB block...this is a pretty low resistance setup (or so I can tell), and the Ehiem should be easilly able to push through this setup. The heatercore that I picked up is brand new (a steal for $8), and fits one 120mm fan. Im hoping this would be big enough...any concerns?

Brian

The RBX (like the Whitewater) really like a high flow system....
may want a stronger pump for that... if you go with the maze 4 than that eheim is just fine... IMveryHO

Yes, the white-water and RBX work very well with high flow rates. They work better than other blocks at low flow rates also.
This is a common confusion. Look at this graph:

The whitewater is better starting at 1/4 gpm (really low flow) and gets even better with higher flow. Here is the whole review: http://www.overclockers.com/articles373/basum.asp

I have seen MANY reports of leakage from bay res type units, also that they are difficult to fill. You may want to consider a different res design.

I have also seen some mention that the curved shape of the RBX can be a problem mounting on at least some AMD CPU's because it doesn't hit the 4 pads on the CPU board. Otherwise sounds reasonable.

i think it comes with additional anti-crush pads.
