Hi Everyone,

I wanted to build a small water cooling loop for my CPU intel i7-5820. I do plan to overclock and wanted to know if it was worth water cooling.

My question was if i bought the RP-985 with the PMP-300, will that efficiently cool my CPU?
My loop would essentially be: RP-985 --> CPU Block--> 140MM Radiator (or bigger if necessary) --> Drain Valve -->back to RP-985.

Also, would i need to stick to a specific size of tubing with the RP-985/PMP-300?

Any additional suggestions anyone can give would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance for everyone's help!

the pmp-300 is sufficient for what your proposing however, I always suggest skipping the 300 and moving to a unit with a PMP-400 or PMP-450. They are very much worth the difference in price, not just from a performance standpoint which is negligible for your proposed loop but from a noise profile perspective aswel.
