My shopping list and fitting question - Page 2

post #11 of 20
The clearance on that koolance block isn't great in the middle for compressions (though what is tbh)

You'll want 45 degree angles there.

Also, when you remove the heat sink from the GPU, you lose a lot of the support for it. You might consider doing something like this:



Using the 2 45 degree fittings and an exact cut of tubing to take some of the weight of the card.

Edit:
Totals for your fittings I would say 4 normal fittings and 4 45 degree fittings.

I'd put straight fittings on the rad and res and then 45 degree fittings on the CPU and GPU.

The reason I didn't recommend the 90 degree fitting on the rad would simply be if you ever want to put fans on the underside of the rad, you wont easily be able to do that with a 90 degree fitting.

To be honest though, I often buy more compressions when I don't need them just in case I ever want to fit something in a different way. Nice to have the option and buying them gradually like that I don't have to cry at the massive hole in my wallet when I do need them

I see what ur saying there, would a back plate help supporting the card?

You could save money by using RX360 kit, just add gpu block and hose and your ready to rock
(the hose that comes with them sucks)

Yea, I considered that before but the price of the two isn't much of a different, so I decided to go with custom loop.

Most people put a T-junction at a low point in the loop. Then you'd have either a valve or quick release attached to that so you can drain it.

Personally I think quick release valves are nicer since you can attach the other end of the quick release with as much hose as you like and you don't have to store it in the case. But they're more expensive....


As for a back plate, I can only imagine it would make the card heavier, so no, it wont help support. All that weight will still be resting on the PCI slot and case slot. But it does make the back of the card more easy to clean and it looks good...

Yup.

keep in mind though, you'll need fittings for it too.



The other option is to just disconnect something over a container or tip the res upsidedown and pour it out.

Drainage ports are generally easier ^-^
