Project "NegativEnergy" WC'ed HAF X WIth RX240 + RX360 - Page 2

So got my parts in, however frozencpu sent me the wrong video card bridge so I'm waiting again to get the bridge to complete the loop. Here's some pics of the work I've done so far, any advice would be great!

Looks great! thumb.gif

A note about 90 degree fittings: They are very restrictive. From personal experience, I had 4, 90-degree barbs in my loop. When I removed them, my temps from 3-4C. Also my pump was quieter because the loops wasn't as restrictive.

thanks for the heads up! deff +1 for that. I'll keep that in mind and try to avoid using em on my SLI bridge when the right one comes in next time.

What is your loop order? I didn't see one in the thread.

I realize youre speaking from an experience standpoint, but I found an article that has another viewpoint. Could your temp also have been affected by thermal paste reapplication or a change in ambient temp? thinking.gif Just another thing to consider OP. Like where this build is going BTW thumb.gif

Sure some extra fittings will add restriction, but it's very minor. As the chart shows, it would take almost 30 each 90 degree elbows to add up to 1 degree in CPU temp rise. Half a dozen to get to aesthetic perfection is perfectly fine from an art priority perspective.

sorry I never stated it:

Res -> Pump -> GPUs -> 360 Rad -> CPU -> 240 Rad -> Res

The drain port will be the lowest port on the Res, the fill port I'm actually being cheap on and am planning on just opening the top port within the Res and using a syringe to add additional fluid. Is that crazy talk?

That's what I was thinking at first, but all I did was take the fittings off, turn the radiator around, then fill everything back up. You can see pictures here and on the next few pages too.

Looks good. I don't think there will be a problem. Your res looks like it is easy to access, so you should be good there.
