[BuildLog]NZXT M59 Throwback Revitalization(Finished, for now) - Page 3

post #21 of 100
Thread Starter 
Ok so I have done some research. Here is what I came up with I need some help on how the quality is on these products( i have read mixed reviews) any input is appreciated. All prices are rounded up.
If you know where I can find the same thing for cheaper or buy something just as good but a different brand for cheaper please let me know.
If any links are broken let me know.

Also do I need 2 fans on top and bottom of the radiator?

Radiator -
XSPC RS240 Dual 120mm Low Profile Rad Rev 2
$50

Reservoir-
Tanky - Dual 3 1/2" Bay Reservoir - UV Green
$30(with 1/2in compression fittings)

Coolant-
Distilled Water with:
Dead Water Anti-Microbial
$5

Pump-
Danger Den DD-CPX Pro
$57

CPU Block-
XSPC Raystorm(comes with barbs :\)
$60

GPU Block-
XSPC Rasa GPU HP
$55
Enzotech BCC9 Memory Ramsinks(GPU) 8 Pack
$17

Tubing-
Primochill UV Green PRO LRT 10FT
$23

Fittings-
Primochill Polypropylene T Fitting
$2.5
XSPC Compression Fittings
$4 a piece(how many do I need, Ill figure it out after I get all the compenents figured out and if they come with comp fittings)

total cost not including fittings and lights/fans about $300

Am I missing anything? Are there links broken? Is this stuff garbage? I am on a budget so I am trying to not be too flashy, just stuff that works and is compression fittings not barbs.

Other Misc Items towards the build-
2 Logisys Cold Cathode UV 12inch
$5 a piece

2 Cooler Master 140mm Black fan(TOP of rad)
$10 a piece

2 Apevia 120mm Green UV and LED Fan
$9 a piece

2 Apevia 140mm Green UV LED Fan
$12 a piece

If you know any about the fans such as noise level and other things let me know.

Also maybe some UV dye? Just dont wanna clog up my system.

Yea the Enzotech RAM sinks are the same ones I use, they're great. Everything else looks good, but I don't have a good opinion about the tubing because I only use Feser. Personally, I would pass on the dye since you're getting reactive tubing and reservoir anyway. If you find that it doesn't glow enough to your liking you can always add dye later. As far as thermal paste goes, the MX series from Arctic Cooling seems to have surpassed AS5 in popularity. I also used AS5 for the longest time but I got MX-4 last time I needed some, comes in a nice big tube for a pretty good price and spreads a lot easier than AS5.

btw, why are you planning to use 140mm fans for a 120mm rad? If you are good with CM fans you should be able to get them off eBay for a better price, I remember getting 2 boxes with 4 120mm CM fans for $20 off eBay. 4 for rad use, and 4 for making shrouds with biggrin.gif

Nice. Yeah I am not sure why I pasted the wrong radiator I will update that. I am going to do some more research tonight and post my final order tomorrow. I need to post pics of the side window I did as well I finished the new plexi glass cutout for the window and its just a window now without a fan and not tinted like the stock m59. My cable management stuff should be here on monday I think I will wait until I am finished to post pics.

As far as routing for my loop goes, can I go like this :
Reservoir -> Pump -> GPU Block -> Radiator -> CPU Block -> back to res

hey dude
one thing, those fans you picked are going to be horrible bad for a radiators.
you see how thin they are, their static pressure is prolly really REALLY low
you want to get something maybe a bit thicker and with more static pressure.

if your on a budget, then you can just get normal case fans for now, but i highly recommend looking into a different one than the one you picked.
Quote:
Also do I need 2 fans on top and bottom of the radiator?

not necessarily but it is much more efficient if you do push/pull
if you do not want to do both then use "pull" style vs "push" style
when your fans push air (assuming your not using a shroud) through the radiator, the fan creates dead spots
1. in the center of the fan
2. on the outer edges
so there will be spots that air wont be circulating as well.
ways to fix "dead spots"
1. use a shroud (this is the BEST way)
2. use pull style(even without a shroud, this is better than having push)
3. use both push and pull style (much easier for air to get through and allows you to also use lower quality fans)

yes, this setup can work but you need to be careful...your sending hot water from the CPU straight into the GPU
you really should get a second radiator (even a single 120mm would increase performance substantially)
ESPECIALLY if you end up getting the fans you picked out

but if you want to keep everything cheap,
find out which block produce more heat, and then put the rad after that one in the loop.....
so if your GPU runs hotter than your CPU,
then the setup you have is fine (with exception to the fans)


other than that, you seems to have a good bearing on what your doing...everything looks solid

the radiator exchanges net heat from the system, so it doesn't matter where in the loop it's placed. there's no need to add a second rad because a single 240 will easily dissipate more wattage than the output of the CPU and GPU.

Should work fine but you could save on some tubing by going GPU -> CPU or vice versa. Just keep in mind with a GPU block exiting toward the side of the case you will need angled fittings to keep tubing sorted out. Sucks to have to restrict some flow by adding elbow fittings but it's the only option if you wanna be able to seal up your case. Anyway, your pump can handle a few elbows so it's not a big deal.

I do not think it matters if he has the GPU directly after the CPU. The water temperature will eventually equalize throughout the loop. I suppose for extreme overclocks this might play a role.

lol... dude, if you take temps in water loops at different points....the temps are different...loop sequencing is very important....you cant just run your CPU liquid straight into your GPU block and expect temps to be good....
post #30 of 100
I run my loop CPU -> GPU now and I used to run it GPU -> CPU and the temp differences are negligible. Running BOINC at 1.7vCore with GPU working too still keeps GPU temps under 50 which is still 30 degrees better than it had on stock cooling. You could put the radiator smack-dab in between the CPU and the GPU and the coolant would still have to pass through both blocks before getting to the rad again.
