Functional Bling. Will this loop work?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Hey, building my first wc setup for a client/friend who is really insisting on it. This guy's budget is pretty much wide open and he's wanting to go for some bling factor and cool CPU, GPU, mobo and RAM. I'm looking to use the Swiftech MCP655 pump to drive this whole thing. Will this work? I'm also trying to add a second RAD to help keep temps down. With that being said: any recommendations on the loop order?

I don't think those will fit together...

only order important in the loop is the reservoir before the pump.. the rest doesn't really matter, but you always can route it to have a radiator before the cpu if you'd like

I have 3 radiators in my 800D case without modding the case so you can look to add another one.. I've seen someone here successfully put a 140mm radiator on the back panel. I wanted a blackice sr1 140 and those would not fit. but on the bottom a 140mm radiator can fit although your wires will be kinda tight.. You can look @ my build log you'll see what it looks like.. If you mod the case you can go as far as two 480 rads..

Actually, frozencpu.com recommended that res when I pulled up the page for the pump. I'm just assuming they know what goes together??

So do you think that pump will drive the loop? Pump>rad1>cpu>rad2>gpu>mb>ram>res

No, it won't.

This product clearly states that its a tank reservoir that goes attached to the pump: a 35X in this case (which is, if I'm not mistaken, a DDC 3.25 with PWM control).

Also, you need another pump: not because the one you have chosen isn't powerful enough (it may be) but because you want to add some sort of redundancy in such an expensive loop.

Other than that, try to only show us the components that are useful for us, as it is there are a ton of things that are not related to the loop and thus only make it harder to see what goes actually on the loop itself.

PD: where will you mont the 140 single rad?

You don't need more than one pump at all. You can set the motherboard to read pump speeds and shut the PC off if the pump stops working.

That's what I've heard too.. that adding more that one pump to the same loop does nothing but add heat.

I see your point about the res Prava.. I've removed it from the list.

What about a res like the Koolance RP-452X2? Would that work with the rest of the hardware below (Prava you'll be happy- a more concise list)??

  • Yate Loon 120mm x 25mm Fan - Open Chassis (D12SH-12)

    XSPC RX360 Triple 120mm Radiator
  • Swiftech MCP655â„¢ 12v Water Pump w/ Speed Control and 3/8" Conversion Kit (317 GPH)
  • Bitspower Ultimate G 1/4 Thread 3/8" ID x 1/2" OD Compression Fitting (BP-CPF-CC2)
  • Masterkleer PVC Tubing 3/8" ID / 1/2" OD - 10ft Retail Pack - UV White

that res looks perfect! plus if you really want to there's a second pump slot

since quantity is not mentionned, you'll get 3 yate loons for the 360mm rad right?

don't forget about the 140mm one needs either a 120mm fan on an adaptor or a 140mm one

everything else seems good!

well.. 3 fans is for push OR pull.. if you want to do push and pull you'd need 6 and 2 respectively

uhm.. for the 140mm I forgot what I used but they are 900rpm-ish fans so very quiet..

Don't you think I'll be okay using 3 120mm inside from the 360 to push air up and a 140mm on the back to push out? I suspect this rig won't get pushed past 4.6ghz.

So getting back to my original question: with our (now modified) set of parts, do we think the Swiftech MCP655 pump should be sufficient to push all of this?
