Need some help with a water loop

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hey guys. I'm going to buy a XSPC Rasa 750 RX360 kit, with a GPU waterblock. My case is a Cooler Master Elite 330. I was reading this tutorial (http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...ing-setup.html) and followed each step. Here is my case with a water loop created by me right now.

Are the pump and reservoir collocated in good positions? Will the pump fit in 2 HDDs slots?
Where could I put the radiator? If I put it on the top of the case (external), how would tubes get to it? What if I put it under the GPU?

What I will buy:

http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/xspcrasagpu.html
http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/sikibyia.html
Distillated water ofc.

Something missing?

A lot of answers I know, but I'm a total newbie in water cooling.

Are you buying another pump or using the one that comes with the kit? The one that comes with the kit is made into the reservoir.

Not sure about the tubing, I don't see any holes for it though. It might require some modification to mount externally.

Silly me! I will now edit the picture to remove the pump, since it is inside the reservoir.
Thank you!

You might want to list the parts you're going to buy also, that way we can tell you if you're missing anything.

With this combo the pump and resv are in one unit so they will fit in "A" and no need for "B". I actually use this pump and radiator but in a much larger case built for water cooling. You will need to modify this case some to make the radiator work. You will need to place the radiator behind the case and run the tubes out the back and use a bracket to secure the radiator to the case. It would be much easier and pleasing to the eye to get a case built for water cooling. But if you are up to a Mod challange this should be a good one. Good luck and happy water cooling.

You'll need ram sinks for the VRM's since you are not using a full cover block, I would also buy some different tubing, the stuff that comes with the kit is junk. Something like this, .

Since I'm buying everything from 1 store, could you please link me the ram sinks from sidewindercomputers.com, since I couldn't find one? Also, with which criteria should I choose the tubing?
Thanks!

Tubing most people would recommend primochill or tygon (I think I'm leaving one more out, but I can't recall). Other than that just choose based on what color/style you want.

Thank you! Do you think this will be long enough? http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/ty7id11odlat.html
And what changes from the one I linked and this one? http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/ty1id3odlatu.html

Thank you very much for answering all my questions
