Taxed out Thermaltake core wp200 water cooled quad loop

Recommended Posts

so its starts out simple.... just going to spend a few dollars here. do a bunch or research to find the best deals. looked at all the pc cases form pc park pick from $30 all the way to $150 hey i can do this cheap right? i even looked at taking a crap case cutting it up and putting it in my caselabs th10 and getting an custom cables made form www.datapro.net oh $250 usd not too bad (at the time i was like too much) so i looked at ammazon and ebay and well it be cheaper but ied probably not get half of the parts....so that idea was a no go. keeps telling myself only doing air, only doing air, ONLY DOING AIR,. i even traded my dad my water cooled asus rampage 2 extreme (with koolance mb water block) for his air cooled mb.



I was done with water cooling and sold my 2x 320mm rads and one of my d5 pumps and the cpu block. THEN out of no were i start thinking ok im just going to do one cpu that's it (still had one pump, top,res, just need an cpu block and rad.


well it started form there adding one thing after another to the shopping cart...$3000 later..... adding this tax that tax and just because we can tax and my #### fees border crossing fees lets just say im not buy form us anymore. if you have not guessed i want two pc's one for games and one for surfing the net and watch netflix. once im done with my gaming pc it be mover over to the other pc and so on.


i do not like window 10 for the privates but i will need it some time for the dx12....so this is what started this project.


so i was searching for a case and was like im going to get the thermaltake core p200 (i did not no it dose not come with an top) and put 2 cases on it. so i was going to do the thermaltake core x9 or x5 and stake em but i decided only because i wanted my loop to be ez to empty this time. so i looked at the be quiet dark base pro orange case and got them for $250 each and i can rotate one so i have access on both side and stack that on the core p200 (i will fit) but i still need a top for it. and then....


i was thinking it be hard to move it with 4 tubes out the back of each case and i did buy 3X quick disconnect  but i would need another 5X at $20 a peace.


so now i got to sell the 3x qdc i have and the two be quiet dark base pro cases(paid $250 now listed at $180) so that's $560 and i take a loss with tax and shipping.... and i got to sell my caselabs th10 for $1000. (don't no if i can sell it with out a window...)


so i should have gotten the case the only case that would have worked and that was the thermaltake core w200 + the p200 making it the core wp200. i did at one point look in to a rad box but i don't think it would have worked for 4 loops that i now have....$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

What i really should have done was just use 2 loops and spent and extra $300 on fittings so i can close off a section with ball valves and open one to drain.

anyway so your asking about the potato's you no what the meat is well when i made my gaming pc in December i ended up getting an gtx 1060 6gb zotac for $315 (bad idea) was a bit too cheap too loud for me....so i sold it for $280 (and loosing shipping tax and fees) and  got two msi lightning 780 3gb with water blocks about 2 years old for $440 don't no if this was wise or not but it is what it is.


you asked why not sli well ill tell you why. i got an non sli motherboard because i never wanted to sli....so ill leave it at that. we will see what i do. by now ive spent so much money i could have had new everything and then some but i got 4  water cooling loops instead....i try to save money to just end up spending more down the road haha....i sux.
