Installing the Loop. Outside first, or Inside? - Page 3

post #21 of 25
i would and have assembled everything inside then ONLY plug your pump up to your power supply and rig your power supply with a paper clip to turn on and plug the power supply up when done building to loop to see if you have any leaks. if you do and it gets on your not powered hardware it shouldnt cause any damage. you can look up how to rig your power supply up on you tube if you've never done it before. hope this helps. it'll save you time and keep leaks from messing your hardware up

I'm building 90% of my loop in an external case and I plan on assembling everything, including the CPU block and GPU block ahead of time and doing a leaktest with it not inside my system. Then I will disconnect the 2 blocks and install them and route the tubes in via my QDC ports and do another leakest with it all hooked up. designed my loop to be very easy with minimal fuss to DC from my system for upgrades, flushes etc etc.

First WC setup and a brand new (less than 2 weeks old) system so being extra careful.

Any answer regarding how to install the tube Reservoir? It's the EK Multioption kind. I should be getting my fans tomorrow (hopefully). Should of received the parts two days ago as a pick-up, but my part's are still being shipped around places. Fail on FedEx... But besides that^-^ I'll post up some pic's once everything is installed and up n' running.

Yup, the res brackets get screwed through the mobo tray area, I drilled 2 holes and used the included nuts and bolts for my EK Res. It's possible you have some holes there already but I don't know that case.

Okay, i'm going crazy trying to install this Waterblock on my AM3 Motherboard, can someone PLEASE show me a picture of the EK Supreme HF Waterblock installed as AM3?! Is the EK logo supposed to be upside-down?! It's the only way that this oring will fit properly........

edit: Nvm, seems the EK logo does have to be sideways when going AM3....Whateva >_>
