he's alive!

So I've been busy getting my bench area setup in the garage. I have 20 cpu blocks and 0 air cooler's. So when it comes to testing pumps/reservoirs, I have to build a 2nd loop to cool the PC....

Ah I have plenty of rads. Almost too many. Well too many 560s anyway. I might sell one of my 560s and get another ut60 in white. I don't feel like I can ask alphacool for any more rads. Particularly when you see what else they're sending/sent me lol.


Editing photos finally...

MEGA POST!

So you may remember this photo of the Koolance box that came in - this stuff is all for review not for the build, although some of the QDC's may end up being used to supplement the many VL4N/VL3N I already have:

NeHtID2h.jpg

PMP500, a D5 top and integerated 120mmx70mm (fat) reservoir and a bunch of the new QD style QDCs:

OikbnRsh.jpg

Let's start with the D5 Top:

50mk9oth.jpg

TMLHpsVh.jpg

This is a full cover top that completely encloses the pump unlike the EK one that is just a top. A cylinder reservoir can also be mounted directly to the top if you want. With Bitspower you can buy a top and a seperate dress kit but the Koolance has all of it included:

dzDsDuDh.jpg

It comes with mounting brackets and plastic thing that I'm not sure yet as to the purpose!

The top is pretty serious and bulky like most D5 tops. If you want small, stick with a DDC style pump:

IzhRtczh.jpg

TUHXJNwh.jpg

The reservoir that Koolance sent is their "fat" 70mm ID variety which needs adapters to fit to the pump top:

HvLWuAuh.jpg

This should not be used for a frosty beverage:

CQoRN3vh.jpg

You can see the threaded adpater which will screw into the pump top. The pump top comes with a base adapter for a "normal" size reservoir.

vEav08Jh.jpg

Here it is fitted - the size actually works because the D5 top is so bulky:

urm8xHAh.jpg

Obviously the ftting at the top of the pump top would need to be removed and moved to the side inlet port. One thing I don't like is that this means you have to use the top port of the reservoir as your return line. I prefer to have that as the fill port.

n1kasceh.jpg

They also sent a PMP500 for review. This is their all new design that is much more powerful than a D5 or DDC pump:

uiEMtS6h.jpg

Came with no instructions:

yvknJsWh.jpg

A mounting bracket and some screws but nothing else:

pmmAxj1h.jpg

Integrated heatsink and nice looking top, but the two halves do clash a little in style:

6dz78ulh.jpg

It is however very compact for a more powerful pump. A D5 with a top is considerably larger:

E4Ldr6uh.jpg

I'll also be reviewing the new QDC's. I'd used the VL4N and VL3N's for a while and my main complaint was that the female connectors were sensitive to being bent out of shape when dropped. The new design should be more robust:

AX4loush.jpg

The QD4 series is the larger size that is more designed for industry than us guys. It is marketed as a direct replacement to the VL4N. It's larger and lower restriction than the QD3 and has fewer useful connection options. They do however come better packed:

irLqaDTh.jpg

No way these things will be damaged in transport. The business ends:

RejtMGRh.jpg

E8RIY8Fh.jpg

Connected - you simply push the two together:

VJH7Wczh.jpg

Disconnected - you simply pull the ring labelled pull:

sPIlQvth.jpg

I have to admit I prefer the new mechanism - there's less time in the zone of being partially open, these really snap on and snap off quickly. No rotation is also a good thing as it lowers the risk of the other end of the tube becoming unscrewed.

The QD4 comes with two options for the other end - either 1/2" ID 3/4" OD compression fitting or a male g 3/8" fitting. Note that this is not a standard g 1/4 like 99% of computer water cooling components.

However Koolance have an adapter ready for you if you do wish to use these:

Swu7aChh.jpg

It barely adds anything to the length unlike the alphacool adapters that I've used in the past. I also like that they've included wrench flats on the threaded version:

16Y3vwph.jpg

Because these are lower restriction they are more bulky and will not fit on a block even with widely spaced ports like their own CPU-380:

LnuOHQZh.jpg

The QD3 series on the other hand is designed for computer enthusiasts. It's smaller and replaces the VL3N line up. These instead get packaged like normal fittings but with a protective rubber.... sheath on the quick disconnect end:

PbLrQLZh.jpg

Those were the 1/2" ID 3/4" OD compression fitting ends. These are the male g1/4 threaded:

JAcRQS8h.jpg

One of each with their rubber... booties on:

48dPwDeh.jpg

The quick disconnect part is much smaller:

oDQ7bxZh.jpg

Unlike the QD4's these can be directly mounted on most blocks that can fit 3/4" OD compression fittings as the compression fitting lock ring is the widest part of the QDC:

EXheK8Gh.jpg

QDD3 vs QD4:

YfXW6BLh.jpg

EK are sponsoring the build so a big thanks to them but also sent some stuff for review in the upcoming pump/res/top roundup:

lWWLtJyh.jpg

The RP452x2 I have will actually be removed and replaced with the 400mm reservoirs that EK already sent me earlier in the year:

Qk2uqqkh.jpg

That RP452x2 will be part of the roundup though lol. EK sent me lots of coolant:

fEhWUxih.jpg

I was trying to take a cooler shot - but it kinda looks like I'm bragging about my car so :shrug:

srj65j4h.jpg

DDC top - this replaced the XSPC acrylic one that I have so that all my pumps/reservoirs are consistently EK:

KEjxNqBh.jpg

Unboxing -

3vuMLVZh.jpg

I do love EK's packaging, the best out there to be honest and it makes you feel like you bought a quality product:

3vuMLVZh.jpg

Individual baggies:

PM5QuXEh.jpg

Sealed with a logo:

HDrtkrih.jpg

There's been a lot of hate on those circles, but EK are changing their designs now thanks to the thinkcell voting:

MtEOQYPh.jpg

I have to admit I'm a sucker for the details though:

1qH1R2Sh.jpg

Not much detail on the inside:

E68asUGh.jpg

You can see the slight angle upwards to the port:

iYuQQAPh.jpg

White D5 top - this replaces my old style EK Black D5 top:

uA6w3urh.jpg

Taking it's shirt off:

VFQW5Vlh.jpg

6rwFiO5h.jpg

White on white is hard to see:

iVOGicRh.jpg

So let's see it on a metallic grey background:

biPEFeih.jpg

I think this one unlike the DDC has a few too many circles

IkHZOynh.jpg

Do you spot the white theme:

mPvuS1yh.jpg

These will be on the workstation side representing the public "light" image of the thief, vs the gaming side representing the hidden "dark" side of the thief. There is some variation in the white acetal color but it's pretty minor. Hopefully it won't be noticeable:

F22F6syh.jpg

Lovely detail on the inside though it's hard to see:

U9MW7r0h.jpg

Now for that white reservoir that I posted an unedited version of this pic:

BmCdOVIh.jpg

Well let's do it properly now:

3NKKbs6h.jpg

Comes bubble wrapped and with an optional filter

LY80ofOh.jpg

All the accessories - sadly the mounting clips are still black:

nJQYRrqh.jpg

The base has 5 ports on all versions. The difference between the basic and advanced is instead the top. On the basic it only has one port. That's ok for me. I like to use the top as a fill port only and have the return in the base:

Un2YAQxh.jpg

DplaR2Rh.jpg

U3LDbDWh.jpg

The anti cyclone works, however bleeding is slightly faster if you use a long tube instead to prevent the bubbles getting back in the outlet:

Rumpbu6h.jpg

Dual D5 top - this replaces the bitspower one that I have, but never got to put in build. This will actually replace the Koolance RP452x2 that I'm using right now. Anything pump/top/reservoir will be reviewed in the upcoming roundup lol:

EfBpb63h.jpg

ZekXuYth.jpg

94hihY7h.jpg

rR2ByREh.jpg

glkxmfyh.jpg

Underside of the top:

QqoBhPbh.jpg

Top of the top, only a few circles:

YWmgPRsh.jpg

With the clamp plate that holds the D5 on added:

1IV5vIbh.jpg

This one is just for review not the build:

DNL793Vh.jpg

fUt0ciDh.jpg

2 bay res with integrated DCP 2.2 pump:

Mxsw4l6h.jpg

Lots of circles:

v3OnORnh.jpg

The bottom bay of the res is actually pretty useless, it's really just filling up the space around the pump:

OQgaKC6h.jpg

Lutro0's sponsorship package arrived so that I can finish my sleeving. Got a fancy wire stripper:

NtW3diXh.jpg

It was a bit dusty in the box but who cares about that:

zRL7VpSh.jpg

Lutro0's crimper. Supposedly the same as MDPC's but with a bit of milling to make it usable with AWG16. I need to get my MDPC one out to compare:

7WYlySrh.jpg

Comes with two example crimps just like Nils sends:

8Uvfs1uh.jpg

Flush edge cutters for cutting sleeve *not* wire:

ciRB7ALh.jpg

though you can use them for wire, you'll want a 2nd pair for that so they stay sharp:

vYcFClFh.jpg

Molex pin extractor:

V91pHgIh.jpg

Crimps and connectors:

I5oamZph.jpg

Lots of wire - being looped like this makes it easier to train.

Also picked up this fan as a test to see how quiet it can go. I'm thinking of changing out all the fans now and running uber silent now that my long term plan is to use the front bays for 4x360 rads

YiLIBiih.jpg

Goes down to ~400rpm and Martin recommended it as being very quiet:

IQAsk0qh.jpg

Also got this as a tester because to be honest LED fans are cooler than white ones:

PCZzqgTh.jpg

PWM but only goes to 600rpm and is allegedly a bit buzzy

V0vIMoGh.jpg

Has a switch for the LEDs

nkkQCbKh.jpg

Also figured I should try PWM control of the existing gentle typhoons and yates in case it's the same volume and I can make my life easier, so I got one of these. Also recommended by Martin:

XPJEMHmh.jpg

I got the smallest one that fits in a 3.5 bay but there is a 6 channel one that takes up one 5 1/4" bay:

3tFNavah.jpg

If I end up using it I will be hiding it because it is pretty ugly:

ctepmgyh.jpg

Welcome to Alphacool also who are sponsoring the build. They sent me some rads as well as other stuff for review:

sCrURX1h.jpg

The monsta'st monsta:

76P0Y2rh.jpg

Hard to photo because it's so big:

9AMR4Irh.jpg

It's big. Next to an XSPC RX360 with push pull fans:

1tUBZJ5h.jpg

Comes with copper accessories which sadly don't match my build:

0lOttcdh.jpg

Also the sexy full copper UT60 in white:

cP3qSwKh.jpg

Get ready:

LnS2sxmh.jpg

Cause it's hot:

l32QtBmh.jpg

And it makes me want to take off all my clothes:

gJxe8Ehh.jpg

Also the full copper 45mm thick 560 known as the XT45:

J1yGfZph.jpg

Still bubble wrapped - I spot a pattern:

7maIEEeh.jpg

A 45mm rad doesn't normally look thin, but 560's are so big that it does:

8xWLppmh.jpg

Next to the monsta:

byUvaW5h.jpg

Also a thin 360mm, thin is useful for the side mount next to the PSUs where I don't have much room:

OvcLXXPh.jpg

This puppy is 30mm thick:

1F0xHP1h.jpg

T0knII2h.jpg

Looks skinny next to a 60mm UT60 which itself is skinny compared to the monsta...

Z1y2PbNh.jpg

They also sent some stuff for review in the pump roundup:

BVBxgI4h.jpg

This is a single bay res with dual pumps:

Qzr9RZTh.jpg

Qszxyhfh.jpg

It takes these tiny DC-LT pumps from alphacool also, they're not included with the res:

lwWRVFvh.jpg

But they sent me some too:

amH1v5wh.jpg

Box not up to the usual alphacool standard:

UpyFy1Lh.jpg

Tiny DC-LT pumps, we'll have to see what they can do:

BYTX4ikh.jpg

No kidding they sent me more stuff for review:

P13xuS3h.jpg

Well we know it's a pump/res of some kind:

MdzfCfkh.jpg

It's a 2 bay res that can mount 2 D5s. It's a similar setup to the RP452x2 that I have:

O9SwnPAh.jpg

Alphacool's black/copper theme is very consistent:

QabbNOTh.jpg

This one won't go in the build:

XK3smEAh.jpg

cQBYp1bh.jpg

But it did come with 2 D5's which I may end up using to replace the DDC or Iwaki:

m5dl9Keh.jpg

Alphacool's VPP655 is just a bare D5 vario with tach wire:

GPL5gtqh.jpg

kaM7XMsh.jpg

Spotswood had also sent me an update for the tech bench after I had some feedback for him:

0CU3K5Ih.jpg

A new "open" top tray:

UCpNXvDh.jpg

Taller posts so that the PSU can be mounted vertically, enabling a 2nd PSU to be fitted:

sJY4PDYh.jpg

And a HDD rack:

KcaQ0eMh.jpg

This is the old one:

FJdcrpdh.jpg

Getting taken apart:

TMZ98PRh.jpg

Now with more rotation:

jxrC5IHh.jpg

I tried the HDD rack at the back:

nPXeHfsh.jpg

(I have the case rotated on my bench so that the back is easily accessible). The HDDs slide in on rubber grommets:

cnOqYKph.jpg

Adding the new top:

Ld017Nbh.jpg

With boards and gpu:

Y855N9vh.jpg

Nearly done:

1SXlkg4h.jpg

In the end I moved the HDDs to the front and mounted the crystalfontz data logger in the back:

jHdSEOGh.jpg

This gives me space to get my hands under the motherboard for fitting backplates. I tried mounting a 360 to the side, but had to offset it a little for easy tube routing:

s8HXC7Mh.jpg

Now you can see the datalogger next to the PSU:

X3bqTjsh.jpg

You can also see the GT that I mounted on a sliding arm under the CPU. This cools the VRM's on the back of the board that will cause CPU throttling if they over heat. The sliding makes it easy to move out the way if needed:

TvwFnhfh.jpg

bdTBLHGh.jpg

Move views:

EoUvyVoh.jpg

I'll be using this just for controlling PWM in the upcoming pump testing lol. Talk about overkill. I have a couple of new cpu blocks to test though and then a titan waterblock roundup to do afterwards so it'll be more useful for that:

f3ahXjFh.jpg

The schmexies:

wXKx1t7h.jpg

Close up of how Spotswood builds up the frame from all the extrusion pieces:
