Water Loop Help - Page 2

post #11 of 16
I'm not sure what the problem is. It's a sealed loop and once filled and bled will then lose a tiny amount of fluid over a long period (months). It doesn't really matter where you put the components, the only 'problem' you might have is bleeding if the rad is in the roof but that's not insurmountable. You just need to rotate and shake the case a lot to help remove trapped air.

Thank you,

 

I mean that's what I saying, a few friends of mine suggested that it won't make a huge difference, since I will be changing my water every year, so I just need to gauge it and see if water level goes down.

The only change that I'm considering is probably moving the vertical res and changing my wiring and loops a bit.

 

Any suggestions on the following loop:

Well, my XSPC pump ---> CPU, then RAD --> Vert Res ---> back to XSPC pump...
 

This will include GPU's at some point.

Why do have a tube res as well as the bay res in the loop?

More water volume for when I have my 2 gpu's.

 

Actually, can you explain what you mean, I'm not 100% sure what you said below, but what I said above is my opinion.

Also, I would like to add that the evaporation facts I listed are found in a simple google search of 

 

"talks about evaporation and if you just google "pump above reservoir" or "reservoir above pump" youll find a great many threads. 90% will say res above pump 10% say it doesnt matter as long as the loop is filled and bleed well."

 

Pointed out by Brontolith.

 

Found here:

Just an FYI, my water level is dropping, I've noticed like 1-2cm drop in water in my Bay res and its pretty much done bleeding, with no leaks. Didn't make any changes to build yet, that change is still pending.

It's not talking about evaporation but bleeding the bubbles of air from the loop, until that's done the water level in the res will drop. Once all the air is out the water level should stay constant apart from very slight evaporation through the tubing over time (months).

Unless you're using an external res with about 10 gallons then the extra volume of water in a tube res will delay the loop temperatures reaching equilibrium by about 2 minutes. Pointless and not necessary.

Yep,

 

That is perfect, so then I'm fine as I am. 

 

Sorry for the only link posted, I'm sure I can read and post others, but you seem to know more on the subject matter. I've noticed a similar post about the 10 gallons, posted a few seconds ago. thumbsupsmiley.png

 

The evaporation was for an earlier post by @_AKIMbO_

  1. After all, I guess it's not necessary to have the bay, but the question is, does it have a negative affect on my cooling by having it?
  2. My stock temps are around 30-50C, 30C being idle. Is this good (not oc yet) with prime?
