800D routing question(s)

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I've got the following components on hand, and wanted to be sure that I've got my loop figured correctly. I haven't water cooled before, so I wanted to make sure that I'm getting the best results with what I do have.

XSPC RX360 Radiator
Black Ice Stealth 120 Rad
EK ResX2 Resevoir
MCP655 variable speed pump
EK Supreme HF cpu block
Bitspower fittings
1/2 x 3/4 tube

I've drawn a basic diagram of the case with the location and flow. Does this look like I've got it right, or should I change anything? I'm trying to keep the inside as clean as possible, but if I've got something wrong, I would appreciate any feedback.

I'm coolong an I-7 3960X Estreme on an Asus Rampage IV motherboard, and a single EVGA 3GB GTX 580 hydrocopper.

Basically, I've got the flow as Res->Pump->360->CPU->120->gpu->Res

I would appreciate any help you guys have at all. Thanks

It doesn't really matter, so what you drew looks fine. There are a ton of other options, though, of course. I've seen tubing routed behind the motherboard tray in an 800D, a method that might hide the length of tube from your pump to RX360 if you flip the radiator. In any event, good luck! smile.gif

Edit: Actually you don't need to flip the radiator to hide the tubing, I suppose.

Looks good. Always Res/ pump first Than shortest routing when possible. Your loop is perfect as you have rad between CPU and gpu.

I like where you put the fittings on your 360 rad. Less chance of any leaks going on your mobo and/or GPU. That's one reason why I personally wouldn't put the 120 rad where the back exhaust fan is... but it shouldn't be a problem. Just personal preference. I would rather put the 120 rad on the bottom between your pump and PSU.

For the pump to fit down there, you'll need a certain pump top. The stock MCP665 only has the front and top ports. You'll need this or this to make it so the pump will fit with tubing.

I actually plan on ordering one of those tonight along with some waterblocks for my gtx 580s.

I actually have the first one you listed. It has the option for a top or front inlet and outlet. I had gotten the pump with the mods already installed. It cost me a little more, but I didn't want to take the chance on screwing something up.

There's plenty of space next to the mb to fit a tube res a D5 pump. I would recommend to get a pump top for the D5 to give you options for different fittings.

Koolance has a D5 top that can be adapt to their tube reservoirs directly. Basically making a tube res/pump combo. There's quite of few options available to you since the 800D is such a huge canvas to add water cooling gear to. If you haven't explored this yet, one of the most common mods is to remove the bottom hdd cage. This frees up space for another rad (depending on how far you want to take it wink.gif , I manage to stuff two RX480 radiators in mine biggrin.gif ) or to fit your pump.

With that setup, you won't even need two radiators.

That's kinda what I thought too.

I also wanted to give myself a little extra cooling in case I add another 580, or 2 of Nvidia's next generation cards. If I do that,I'll definately remove the HDD cage, and move a rad to the bottom. As it is, I hated using a step drill to get the hole behind the tube resevoir. It felt like I was assaulting my new "lady".wink.gif
