need help (dual loop)

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Ok my head hurts. I need help coming up with a dual loop concept for my corsair 800D. Be in mind this is my first WC setup. What i already have

1. Case
2. Fans/shrouds
3. Rad
4. Pump
5. Working on getting 240 (yes i know i have to mod case for both rads)
6. No cpu block yet (waiting on Sandy-E)
7. NO gtx 580s. (hopefully price might come down some at end of year)
8. Don't know about a MB block (heard they are a waste)
here is my idea. I wan't a dual loop. However, im lost when it comes to how it needs to be place...HELP!!!

why do you want a dual loop? just go single, you have enough raddage for it.

I also have the 800D and I have the same Liquid fusion res but the 160mm one. It was hard for me to put the MCP655 pump underneath it so I dont think you will be able to do it with the 250mm version. I see you want to do a push/pull setup on the RX480, I have the RX360 which is the same thickness as the RX480 but I have a push configuration and it does take up some space since the rad is so thick so with your push/pull plus shrouds, I dont think you are going to have room for the 250mm res. Also, where you show the want to mount the other MCP655 pump on the bottom, Thats where I wanted to mount mine but I couldnt figure out a good way to mount it without kinking a hose so thats also something you may have to consider. Here is a link to how I have mine setup so you can have an idea of what you have to look forward too....

Im just trying to help ya out since I had trouble figuring out where to put all the cooling stuff in mine.

EDIT: I also wanted to add that the RX480 should be more than enough to cool your CPU, GPUs, and mobo in one loop. Not having the 240 in your setup will help you save room.

Well im doing 1/2 ID for the CPU Loop and would probably go 3/8 ID for GPU loop. The only reason why i want to do Dual loop..is mainly b/c of the quietness i want. I know the BlackIce Rads are good for one loop, but you also need 3000rpm ultra Kaze to make it shine. That right there is way to loud. Just going to use the 480 for CPU then 240 for Gpu. I'm just frecking wondering how to set it up...lol

EDIT: you may be right about the 480. But the XSPC is not a thick rad, and i have read that you may or gonna need at the most a 240 to keep components pretty cool. BTW you have a nice rig. Hopefully mine will be just a good. Man im nervous about it...HAHA

The RX### rads from XSPC are thick. They have other versions that are not, but the one you listed on the picture is thick. I have the same one but the 360 size.

Dont be nervous about the build, just take your time and make sure all the fittings are tight. Remember to do a leak test before you power the computer up. Just fill the loop and run the pump for a while to check for leaks.
