Setting up WC on GPU, so redue on system need advice.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi, I am finally getting my GPUs under WC, and so I am changing up my system some. And as the title says I need some advice on placement and airflow direction.

I have some pics of the case, and I am putting 3 rads in. So that means 2 in the front, and one in the back. Would you suggest, airflow, to be pull in on the front to and out the back? Or, all three pushing air out of the case? I do have 3 fans on top of the case that can push air in. And do have a problem with the house being dusty and pet hair everywhere.

Another question, right now I have my CPU and a Classified NB/SB block all on one loop. And with making 2 loops now, what should I put on what loop? I am settin up 2 rads on one loop and 1 rad on the other.
Rad>rad>Gpu>GPU or Rad>rad>gpu>gpu>NB/SB?

Thank you for your time and information. I always find the help I need here and great advice.

PS the top in thoses photos, isnt the same as whats on now, the one I have on now has 3 120mm fans in a row.

Not very good with the airflow stuff but I'd say in the front and out the back.

As far as loop reordering I would Put the two rads on the GPU-GPU loop and one on the CPU-NB/SB loop. That's how I'd do it anyway, those 580's are by far your biggest heat source.

I am putting in 3 Black Ice GTX Gen Two Xtreme 360's with the Heatkiller 580 hole edition waterblocks. and for pumps I am going to use Swiftech MCP35X 12 VDCx2 and a Swiftech MCP655™ 12v Water Pump w/ Speed Control. I am going to put one MCP35x on the CPU loop and the other 2 on the GPU loop. I hope I did good with this order.

Also was wanting to find out alittle more about neg air pressure in case to help keeping dust and stuff out of the case. I did the pantie hose thing, and even with weekly blow offs, they are now so clogged that I am having to remove them to keep the air flowing. in an old house, with a dog, cat and 2 ferrets. and it doesnt help its there is all kind of bare ground around my house that throws up dust.

IS a neg airflow incase not a good I idea for my system? and I was looking at putting the top front for the CPU and NB/SB loop then connecting the bottom front and bottom back to make one loop for the GPUs

Well, just lucked out, just ordered me the Mountain Mod's Extended Ascension With Trinity front, big windows (smoke grey) for both sides and top, the EATX, and the horizion mb tray. So I be able to set all 3 rads in the front. I will have to fix some of the problems I will have or had to step over because of cost. I didnt put in any quick disconnects or a fast drain. but I change my water abotu every 3 or 4 months, so I will add those when I do it again. plus I need to do some treaking anyways. I am still learning, but feel like I know enough to set this up.

Well other then the air flow stuff. still not sure, and hope my fans will be enough. I have the black ice gtx 360 with shroud, push pull, with yate loams high fans, and putting them on fan controller, set to max along with pumps. or at least thats the plan for now, still waiting on orders to come in, and then have to wait on case.

any suggestion on set up is welcome. I can put a full list of everything that will be in the build for your info if it would help.

PS can anyone tell me about Scythe KAZE-Q 12 Channel Fan Controller, are they worth the money? can can it handle more then 12 fans or is it not strong enough, and only use up to 12 fans. which I was just going to use it on the rad fans which is 9 total. but might want to ad more then 3 more if it will let me.

Ok got a question, just realized i might have ordered the wrong piece. I order the heatkiller triple sli bridge thinking I could close off the middle holes because I use my cards in the 1st and 3rd slots, but I didnt know that they holes where just slits. So is there anyway to close of the middle or do I need to order the dual slot sli one?
