Project "Out of Stock", progess log on my first w/c setup (lots of pics, 56k warning!)

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hello OCN

Okay im in the process of building my first watercooling setup, im gonna give you a rough outlay of what i have, what i want cooled and what i already have to work with as i have bought some major compmnents already.

Im not looking for someone to hold my hand and guide me though it, im not a n00b but im also not arogant enough to belive there isnt somebody on here who is smarter than me!
basicly im just looking for some tips or ideas and just general input on my progress so far, i will be up-ing some pictures at some point as i go along so this might become a bit of a build log!

Right, heres what Im working with on my new rig :
Case - Corsair 800D
Mobo: Asus Rampage III Extreme
CPU: Intel Core i7 Extreme 980X (1366LGA)
RAM: Corsair Dominator (CMT6GX3M3A2000C8) 6GB
GFX: Geforce GTX 580
Hard Drive: Intel SSD Boot (cant remember model number!) + 2x 1TB WD Black

Currently its being cooled by my H80 (push + pull) and a selection of fans, temps are fine but im looking for something more efficent and more pleasing on the eye!

My plan so far is to cool the cpu and gfx card only, im not intending to overclock as its fast enough for my needs as it is.
Chipset is fine without, as is the RAM which has the fancy Corsair cooler on it biggrin.gif

My plan is to mount a 360 triple rad to the roof of my case and have a push pull setup of fans, 3 on top and 3 under. Im toying with the idea of removing the fan grills to improve airflow but im not 100% confident on my dremeling skills!
Im pretty sure im gonna be runing a single loop for both with dual pumps for reliablity.
Im going for a blue colour scheme so all fans will be blue and im also considering sleaving my cables in blue and black for added sexy-ness.

So far I have bought:
XSPC Raystorm CPU Block
Koolance RP-452X2 Rev 1.3
Scythe 12 Fan Controller

Im days away for purchasing 2 of the Koolance 450 pumps for my res, im stil deciding on the rad and tubing, im going for coloured tubing aside from dye as Im not keen on having to tear it down to clean it ever few months!
Im also going to buy the E-connector for my res so i can use it as one big res aside from 2 seperate.

Okay so there we have it for now, those of you who stuck around until the end, well done smile.gif
Any questions, insults or death threats, please dont hesitate to reply and i'll get back to you as quickly as i can.

Peace out OCN

Jim Mcnasty OUT!

Sounds like you've got it pretty much all figured out smile.gif I don't know about the dual pumps idea, simply because I figure that if one dies, the other one can't push through it, or will be stressed to do so and just break that one too. Never looked into it though.

Tubing: Primoflex is working excellently for me.
Sleeving: MDPC-X is definitely my favorite (shipping times, not so much).
Rad: I have an EX240, Black Ice 92, and Black Ice 120. They're all well built and perform perfectly for my needs (2500K @ 4.5GHz and 5870 in same loop). If you want a shiny rad, get the Black Ice.

No reason to cut the grill out, your airflow should be fine with 3/3 push/pull.

Umm, I haven't researched it thoroughly, but I don't feel like a 360 will handle a 580/980x adequately. A 360 + 120 probably. I always say better safe than sorry in the cooling department. If its not in the budget, just test it and if its not performing well enough, just add in a 120.

Good luck with the sleeving, its a nightmare, lol (only like 20 hours of work for SATA, 6/6+2-pins, 8-pin, 24-pin, molex, and some other random cables, maybe less or more, can't remember).

Your build seems solid thumb.gif

Thanks for the input, I will adjust my plans accordingly!
I was in two minds on weather one rad would be enough, dual loop it is!!
Im gonna up some pics of my build now and as i add to it for the delight of my ocn brother / sisters / creepy uncles.
I shall do yet more research lol, i might cheat and buy the coloured already sleeved psu extension connectors as i value my sanity!!

Okay heres a VERY rough plan i knocked up in paint, feel free to mock haha

I dont really want to attack my case with power tools too much so im trying to work with what i got, instead of cutting bits out and making a mess of it lol

tell me what y'all think :0

Looks good so far. If you don't care about the bottom hdd cage you can remove all of that and fit a thick 240 without any further modding. If you're patient and don't mind getting your hands dirty you can put a 480 in the bottom and move the PSU to the front and above the lower section. You lose the hotswap bays so that may not interest you.

Good luck and have fun.

Edit - I'm not sure I would cool a 580 on just a single 140 radiator. You may want to consider just a single loop with the pumps in series if you go with the above diagram. For a dual loop I would definitely look into putting a 240+ in the bottom for the GPU.

Or swap the loops. Use the 360 to cool the GPU and the 140 to cool the CPU. You are talking about 244W TDP vs 130W TDP. This still isn't ideal, as I would use at least a dual rad for the 980X. Running series is the best answer IMO.

Thanks for all the input guys, it is appreciated smile.gif

Im thinking of changing my original idea and adding a 140 rad to go with my triple so it'll run thus:

RES/PUMPS -->360RAD--->CPU--->140RAD--->GTX580--->BACK TO RES

I know this will probably encourage a large amount of mocking but can somebody please explain the exact difference between running series, coz i really am confused about it!

Aside from the parts i have already got, i am open to ideas and input, im just trying to build a tidy setup for my baby smile.gif

Pumps in series will power just one loop. It's part redundancy, part having more flow for larger, more restrictive loops. The res you currently have should have the option to run the pumps in series. You can generally run them a little slower (if they are variable speed) since you effectively have double the flow. That's a good thing for both noise and heat.

You should be ok. I'm not sure the difference in heat between a 980x and a 2600k but I'm only running 1 360 rad and temps aren't a problem.

Ahhhh! That clarifies it for me thank you!!

I think for the sake of safety and peace of mind, I'm gonna run with a 360 rad and a 140 together, as i said before, im not intending to overclock I just want it stable and as quiet as i can make it.
I'll up some pic s of my progress on Friday when some more parts arrive, im currently trying to get all my fans ordered. All blue Enemax Vegas, expensive but sexy as hell and very quiet (i already have 3)!

I have the same res (RP-452 rev1.3) as the one you are planing to use, and my tubing path is similar as your picture, but my loop is in series with my res split in to halves with the long plug. Basically I alternate my res inputs:

res1/pump1 > 360 rad > CPU (mobo/ram) > res2/pump2 > 240 rad > GPU's > res1/pump1

I did my loop in this configuration for pump redundancy, so if one pump fails, I still have a complete loop. Your build looks similar to mine, so you can grab some ideas from my build log link in my sig... but I got my ideas from other builds.tongue.gif
