3960x Cooling Q. And Dual 7970's Q. Need LC Advice - Page 2

post #11 of 31
If you are going with the bay res option and you want to run 2 different loops, Koolance has a dual d5 drive bay reservoir you can look at. It will save you alot of space.

I personally have a DD Monsoon, but it only houses one pump and I need 2 pumps because I will move my heat exchangers outside the case. I was thinking of buying the Koolance bay, but I want to move away from res drive bays and have a bitspower dual d5 mod top coming in next week. smile.gif

I see, is the bay res to loud or not enough flow for you? Or is it just simply that you want to move your heat exchangers?

Well, having a bay res with a big case was kind of a pain during maintenance time. Having to tip the case back and sideways wasn't exactly fun. With a cylindar res, it seemed easier to prime and work the air bubbles through. My only problem now is to find a place to put that cylinder res in my current 800D.

As for the heat exchanger, I plan on using a water chiller from a local aquarium store and stop using radiators altogether. I originally wanted to use an external unit of some kind, but the one from Koolance cost like over $1,000. Then I came across a few people that has used water chillers with an adjustable temperature setting at 1/3 of the price. I'm just waiting for my 3 sets of VL4N QDC's from Koolance and my Bitspower Dual D5 Top to come into mail before testing this baby out smile.gif

Ever have anyone try the ones at FrozenCpu? I would also like to know how they fair out before trying.

They look amazing but quality is sometimes a hit and a miss, well at last from my experience a few months back with the liquid fusion tube reservoirs. The acrylic of the tube is thinner than my current EK res and the threading on the acrylic tube was pretty crappy, it stripped the first time I unscrewed the acetal caps so it had to get replaced and the port threadings weren't perfect. The early frozencpu liquid fusion tube res that couldn't disassemble had no issues though. I can't say anything about the bay res though since I never had any experience with those.

Here's a guy who has been running his system on one for a couple months now. The water chiller he has is usually used for like 30-40 gallon reef aquariums. After this video, he moved the chiller down to his basement and ran tubes all the way to his pc room. All with dual d5 pumps.

Ive been reading alot about those EK reservoir's crapping out lately.

x2, If you can deal with the noise and energy use! Ditch the rads (maybe keep em for decoration) but a water chiller would give you hands down best load temps.

Could also be optional, with two pumps and some quick disconnect fittings.

Here you go:

Looks legit.

I cannot deal with the noise TBH. Like I said before I am in single room barracks. Maybe after I come back to the states. Maybe the tube res will work better if I cut and drill a little bit. Might have to re order a new motherboard tray instead. What about CPU blocks and the Fin Location. Any difference with blocks designed on the 4 core platform moving to the 6 core chips?

LOL the noise on my water chiller wasn't any louder than the fans running from my case when it was on. The chiller was designed to be quiet and will shut off automatically to prevent the temperature from going below your setting.

In regards to the CPU Block, alot of people seem to really like the EK Supreme HF ones. I have a Swiftech Apogee HD, but am saving it til the rest of my parts arrive so I am running my old Koolance 360 rev 1.1. I think it was designed mostly for 4 core, but I do not really like the temps that I am getting. On my old rig, I had the block on my i7 860 (lga 1156) and I was getting temps under 30C at around 27c-29C idle with stock clocks. Now I'm getting 35C-37C all with an ambient of 29-30C. The loop is running serial into my GTX 480 though.

Thats good to know about the noise on the chiller. I would probably not follow through with that on this computer but sounds like my 2600k could use that in the small case its in.

Back to the subject on the radiators, I wonder how well the new Airplex Modularity radiators work. I see they sell out very fast so either they only make a few at a time or they just are that nice in design. But if I am going to sink 700+ dollars into rads they had better say hello when I turn the computer on. Right now it seems the SR1 looks like a good way to go. Curious about single loops with 6+ components, if I setup the loop as follows.

RES-PUMP/PUMP-CPU-MB(MotherBoard)-RAM-RAD-GPU-GPU-RAD-RAD-RES

With dual pumps in series?

Or setup as follows:

Loop #1 RES-PUMP-CPU-MB-RAM-RAD-RES

Loop #2 RES-PUMP/PUMP-RAD-RAD-GPU-GPU-RES

Or setup as follows:

Loop #1 RES-PUMP/PUMP-RAD-RAD-CPU-GPU/GPU-RES

Loop #2 RES-PUMP-MB-RAM-RAD-RES

The last seems a bit anti- productive being I am sicking the most heat producing components all together rather than seperating the loops to dissapate the heat evenly.

Ideas?

+rep for those helping out to. Thanks OCN members.
