Separate Corsair "COOL" Water Blocks

OK, I think I've found everything I need to get a GPU block in the Nautilus cycle (I'll consider a north bridge block in the near future). What I think I need is:

 

1. Hose Clamps

2. 3/8" Straight Fitting (I'll get a few of these)

3. 3/8" Swiftech Vinyl Tubing (I'll get this is I need more tubing or if the GPU block doesn't come with some)

4. Arctic Silver Thermal Interface Material (I will get incase I need spare)

 

Anything else I may need?

Isn't the hose 3/8" ID?

Yes, the tubing used with the Nautilus500 is 3/8" ID. You will not need the reducers if you are using the N500. The only time you would need those is to get 3/8" blocks to work with the HydroCool 200/EX unit.

I've decided I'll get some hose clamps from my local B&Q.

 

Anyway, is it worth getting a GPU block now that DX10 is getting closer? Will the block fit onto new cards?

 

Thanks.

 

You'll have to get out your crystal ball for that one.

In short, YES, the separate blocks contain EVERYTHING you need other than an extra bit of hose. They've got the clamps, etc, etc, etc.

 

And as far as I can tell, the thermal compound is nearly the same (or is the same) as Arctic Ceramique.
