My PC and liquid cooling


May 11, 2012

I just bought a new computer and I am new to building my own computer.
I have so many questions and feel so down and hopeless I do not quite know where to begin. I will first tell you which pieces I have purchased:

Koolance gtx 580 waterblock.

First of all, do these interface together??

Next, I barely understand the water cooling without the video card waterblock in the picture. So, lets start from before that. I have a corsair h100. This is good so my cpu can run really fast ( maybe be overclocked ) and it will not damage it or cause the system to shut down. So it has a radiator and something else? Which is the long one and which is the cube looking one hovering over the cpu?

Now, the corsair h100 it comes with two tubes. But I need to include my waterblock into my water circuit, correct? So how on god's earth do I do that and where do I buy the spare tube? Additionally, can it interface with my h100, or would I need to completely buy/build a new water circuit thing. I'm so lost and have no clue what to do. I keep watching youtube videos but not understanding one thing. WIthout the gtx 580 waterblock, I understand things pretty well. With it though, I don't know what to do.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you so much

I'd missed this thread, normally people post liquid cooling questions over in the watercooling section of overclocking, no matter though,
You should not try to modify the H100 to include the gfx card waterblock if you really do not know what you are doing, read the watercooling sticky in the section I mentioned to help give you an idea of how W/c works,
Your best bet here is to buy a starter kit and add the gfx block into that, but we can discuss that over in the new thread you post in W/c, where more folks will see it and offer help and advice,
