Please give me feedback on my new dual loop build

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

I just want to start out by introducing myself as this is my first post. My name is Michael and I am a technology enthusiast. I'm a photographer so for those of you who have flickr add me as a contact.

I'm not a watercooling guru but this wont be my first wc build either. In fact my first WC build was back around 2002-2003 when I built out a Koolance case with a top mounted 360mm rad.

I've already started pulling the trigger on some of the hardware for my new system but I wanted to run everything by the community to get some feedback on my new rig before I purchase everything. Words of wisdom, tips, suggestions and part recommendations are always extra welcome

I'd rather figure out that I need to order something else before everything is sitting in front of me waiting to go.

Here's what I have planned out:

Hardware:
Corsair 800d (Yes another dual loop 800d build!!! )
2600K
Asus Maximus Extreme IV
16GB Corsair vengeance
Corsair HX1050W power supply
EVGA GTX590 hydro copper (in my possession )
2 x OCZ Vertex 3 120GB SATAIII SSD's in Raid 0
Creative X-Fi Titanium sound card
Sony BD5300S Bluray burner


Dual loop systems with:
XSPC Dual 5.25" Bay - DDC Dual Resevoir
2 x MCP355 pumps
Black Ice GTX Xtreme 240 (GPUs loop)
Black Ice GTX Xtreme 360 (CPU loop)
Swiftech Apogee XT
Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120mm x 25mm Fan - 3000 RPM for radiators
Noiseblocker NB-BlackSilentPro PK-3 140mm x 25mm 1700 RPM - 27 dBA for 800d fan replacement
Feser One Non Conductive Cooling Fluid - 1000 ml - UV Acid Green
Feser One Non Conductive Cooling Fluid - 1000 ml - UV Blue
Koolance QDC Compression (13mm, 1/2" x 19mm, 3/4")
Tygon R-3603 1/2" ID (3/4" OD) - Laboratory Tubing

All feedback encouraged.

Thanks for all of your help,

Michael

your build looks nice so far, but why dont you look into a case labs case. They are truly made for w/c.

Thanks for the info. I'm going to look into case labs right now.

I've always had my heart on the 800d (like everyone else) and was looking forward to modding the case.

I'm waiting for my caselabs TH10 to arrive...Can't wait Nice set up you are proposing. Everything should fit the 800D with ease. What color tubing is that?

Thanks for sharing Wermad. I actually came across your amazing build while doing research on custom modded 800Ds. You've gone way above and beyond. I was just planning on top mounting the 360mm rad on top and knocking out the lower hard drive cage to make room for the 240mm rad.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm sure I'd be fine with a single loop and both of these rads but i figured why not?

Any specific reason why you dont like the fesser coolant? Now you're making me second guess myself and and lean back towards distilled water.

Np, that was actually phase 2 of my hacked up 800D journey Though, I used an RX360 for the top and an Rx240 for the bottom. I still fall in love with it every time I see the 480mm rad at the bottom

btw, ignore that poster, looks like someone or something is just spamming. The mods should be coming along shortly to clean it up.
