New build, need help with loops! - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I don't say two loops because one loop cannot deal with the heat I say two loops because I think it can be made to look both more interesting and cleaner. You have to admit if this is done right it can be made to look very nice.If you can plumb this thing and not have it both look like a bowl of spagetti and impossible to disassemble if and when the time comes go with one loop.

OK,

I did some more searching and I found a flow calculator from martinsliquidlab and this is the revised setup. I am partial to the 1 loop idea now, with the video cards in parallel...

Attached is a drawing of the new loop...

All of the part numbers are Koolance part numbers.

Devices:
1 X CPU370 - CPU block
2 X VID-NX590 - GTX590 block
1 X INS-FM17N - Coolant flow meter
1 X ERM-3K3UC

Connectors:
2 X VL3N-M13S - QDC (High Flow) No-Spill Shutoff, Male [For ID: 13mm (1/2in), OD: 16mm (5/8in)]
2 X VL3N-F13S - QDC (High Flow) No-Spill Shutoff, Female [For ID: 13mm (1/2in), OD: 16mm (5/8in)]
6 X NZL-V13P - Nozzle Pair, Compression [For ID: 13mm (1/2in), OD: 16mm (5/8in)]
2 X CNT-VDA34 - Dual VID Connector, Adjustable 2-3 Slot Spacing

Might add 2 more quick disconnects for disconnecting the external cooler from the case

Comments? Suggestions? Did i miss anything?

1200$ for that thing?
It's your money but I think you should replace it by a couple of XSPC RX 360 rads and a good Swiftech 35x pump and that will perform better for 1/4 the price.

I once bought a cooling kit, came with a rad, coolant, pump, CPU block and fans ...........never again.

And dont get too crazy with the QDC fittings, they can be a bit restrictive.

ya i know it is pricey, but the thing i like about it is the emergency shutdown features, the alarms, the control system in general... i'm still thinking about it, the other thing that is appealing is that all of the watercooling things are contained in one place (outside the case).

I am a little paranoid about having the res/pump/radiator inside the case, once upon a time, i had a leak from a connection to the res and i had some damage...

Whats most likely to leak is your blocks..... thought not very likely if you do a half decent job. Rads such as the RX 360 dont have to be installed inside the case. My 4 x 120.4 rads will all be external on my next build.
