It barley kinks just a little. I'd say its at its limit as far as bending, and I'd rather it have more room to turn but its a win loose situation. If I move the pump to sit on the ground the exit faces up and its gota turn hard. And at that point the tube is resting on the under circuitry of the HD. I think the only real solution is move the HD to the upper bays and the entire HD cage can be used for the pump. Ors I gota do some serious cutting on my HD cage..

If you can think of a better solution I'm open ears

A Hard turn > a Kink...Whats wrong with moving the HD up?

Can you just shorten it a little ? Looks like that might help..Swifty cool sleeves might help if you can't shorten it they helped me making some tight turns in WC box...3rd time I've tried to post this, Servers getting flakey again...P.S. Did you add the tubing grommets in the back of your case or did it come that way? Either way they look good...

Good news the rig is watercooled with no leaks. Bad news is I could not use the chipset block.. My video card interferes with the mounting hole location. I would have to buy another motherboard to use it.

But on the bright side im lucky because it runs on the PSU and even with that bend down by the pump it flows very fast through the whole system.
The other thing that sucks is the RBX CPU block has to be mounted vertically, so its hard for the water to flow up and out the upper exit barb. Its noticeable because there is a spot in the exiting upper tube that has a small air pocket sometimes.

I will post some pics ASAP because I at least owe you some for the help you guys have given me. Thanks!




snerp: I have the HD moved up as far as possible in the cage but I could move it up above the DVD rom or move the DVD rom up and put the HD under it. I just have to go out and find a adapter/bracket to do that. I have about 3mm clearance from the bottom of the HD to the back of the pump lol. so i used every inch.

sidenote: now that I looked at the images i posted, technically I could flip the HD to be upside down in the cage and it would give me a little less than a centimeter extra space.

ira-k: shorten it? I don't really follow.. do you mean the tube length?
Lol, the case came with the grommets and that was another reason I liked this case because I wouldn't have to drill them out and mess it up..
But these Swifty cool sleeves. I've never heard of them. Maybe I've seen them on other peoples rigs but didn't know the name. Are they the coil like things that you put on yours tubes?

Oh also I'm tryin out FanSpeed but which temp should I be lookin at for the CPU? is it core?
post #35 of 98
Second time I've tried to post this,went wacky on me just then..Glad it is working well for you...Yeah I meant the tubing on your pump unless that would just kink it worse...Those Swiftech "Cool Sleeves" work great to take kinks out of tubing. They are the spring looking things that go around tubing..You can just use small zip ties to, just zip a couple around the kink to straighten it out...P.S.On my Speed Fan the first is case temp..... the second is CPU....third I don't know.....Fourth Hard drive...Maybe they will have pity on you and let you send back your chipset block for a restocking fee...It has been a long time since I set up spdfn,but I do beleive "Core" should be your v-core temp....P.S.S- I was glad that I could help be of some small help, it helps me to learn better trying to help people they have ideas that I would of thought of otherwise....

Check my last post about speed Fan...It kept crapping out whenever I tried to submit...And btw I sure would like to see your rig set-up and running...

ok here we go... As you notice there are bubbles still in the system mostly because of the flow through the RBX block. I'm trying to figure out what I can do about it. I'm still working on the temp data. I've been messing around overclocking the cpu to 2.6ghz.

btw the liquid is light blue cuz of the bubbles rushing through. And ira-k thanks for the explination about the sleeves and fanspeed.

anyways, Taadaaa!








man I need to turn down the ISO speed on my camera. Sorry about the graininess..
And did you notice my new ATA HD cable, lol.. I picked it up at the microcenter to get rid of the ribben cable that was blocking my air flow.

But yeah, the first thing that came to mind after shoot.. my chipset block wont fit was to return it. But after I though about if for a while I figure soon i'll buy and new motherboard with sli and I might have a chance to use it on that. Then on top of that I have a good friend that wants to get a personal built rig and watercool it. Maybe I could sell it to him for a few good price. Although i'll loose money on that deal because he is a friend..

I have run anodized aluminium blocks in line with copper and the aluminium block seems to build up a lot of corrosion still. I have since changed over to all copper and have no issues now. Another tip for the loop is added toilet cleaner, not much just a little. Methylated spirits also does wonders for the loop and keeping it clean.

this should be obvious but I had to ask anyways. Was your block anodized on the inside? I have Fluid XP+ do you think I should still add stuff like toiler cleaner?

Regardless in a few weeks i'll remove the resevior and take a look at it to see its progress.

Yes the block was anodized inside also. I was surprised at the problem I had. It became so bad that flow was affected and was nearly totally blocked up. I don't think you will have that sort of issue with the radiator though. If the problem was there I think it would have been mentioned before now

Great rig mate!
