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?
  • EK-CoolStream RAD XTC (140) Radiator
  • Yate Loon 120mm x 25mm Fan - Open Chassis (D12SH-12)
  • A 140mm fan
  • Koolance RP-452X2 res
  • EK Supreme HF Universal CPU Liquid Cooling Block w/ Easy Mount Kit - Rev 2 - Nickel (Sockets 775 / 1156 / 1366 / 939 / 940 / 754 / AM2 / AM2+ / AM3)
    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
  • Koolance 3/8" (10mm) ID / 1/2" (13mm) OD G1/4 Threaded Angled Nozzles Pair (NZL-L10KG)
The pump you chose is fine.

drop the koolance fittings, and go with Bitspower compression fittings

also don't use 3/8" ID x 1/2" OD hose - it kinks wayyyy too easily with the 1/16" wall thickness - you need to use 3/8" ID x 5/8" OD x 1/8" wall tubing, otherwise you're not going to be able to make any bend that is worth a damn in that loop... and of course you need the appropriate 3/8" ID x 5/8" OD compression fittings


like everyone said above, the swiftech reservoir will not work with the D5 pump... although for high-restriction loops like you're assembling above, you will probably have better performance with a DDC-2/MCP355 pump that has a lower flow rate, but double the head pressure of a D5. That will also enable the use of the desired swiftech reservoir posted above.

And if I'm reading correctly - one EK 140.1 radiator? thats not enough - gonna need a 120.3 or 140.2 radiator at the very least.... 120.4 or 140.3 preferred for optimal performance

There are no koolance fittings in my specs, only bitspower compression fittings.

I'm looking around on some of the supply websites for that hose and fittings but having some trouble.. can you reply with a link, say, from frozencpu.com?

there's assorted colors of Primochill, and 3 different grades of Tygon

check out the descriptions and look for 3/8" ID / 5/8" OD / 1/8" WALL tubing

Koolance 3/8" (10mm) ID / 1/2" (13mm) OD G1/4 Threaded Angled Nozzles Pair (NZL-L10KG)

Koolance RP-452X2 res


Get rid of both of those... koolance is garbage, and will only cause you problems. You're doing a high-ticket build, and using Koolance parts... come on man!


And I'd just match the sets of radiators - go with an EK 140.1 and a EK 120.3 - EK's radiators are top notch, and unless you're running a SR-2 build or quad SLI, you're not going to notice a difference in temps with an XSPC radiator.


For the res, check out EK's Spin Bay reservoirs, or DD's new Monsoon bay reservoirs where it integrates a D5 pump into the reservoir itself - looks pretty sharp too!

oh yeah- forgot I had those threaded angles in there.

But see.. the problem is you say this, then there's scads of other people on this site that think Koolance is great and EK is overrated. It's all very confusing.

So if I go with hose like this: Primochill 3/8ID 5/8OD 1/8wall
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12...?tl=g30c99s171


Can I use a compression fitting like this? Bitspower G1/4, 3/8ID 5/8OD

How about for the 90 degree fittings? This:
