The RX360 kit is good, especially the one that comes with the raystorm block. I wouldn't say you NEED angled fittings on the CPU block, but it may make your tubing lines more aesthetically pleasing.

This.

I have an XSPC Raystorm with D5 Bayres kit, and things are MUCH better with 45 degree fittings on it. I have a Raystorm without it, and it does work, but that is in a build that I don't really care about the tubing being aesthetically pleasing at all.

So should I consider getting the kit for the RX360? RIght now my temps are 45c idle, 75c full load in linX using h100 but my chip is at 1.37vcore for 4.20ghz. I guess if I needed something better down the line I can always add a radiator to the front of the case or bottom pretty easily.



In the next few months I plan to buy whatever nvidia offers as a new flagship and hopefully a haswell CPU so I want some room for that. I don't think haswell. But right now I have a decent tax return this year and wanted to buy a w/c kit. I was considering the xpsc ones because they seemed metioned the most and the raystorm block and bay res look awesome IMO.

Well, that is the beauty of going with a "custom loop" (as opposed to the H100), you can always expand it.

But having said that, your temps are pretty good on that H100 now. I don't think you are going to get much more than maybe 5-7C better with a totally new kit. You could keep running the H100 for now, and when you pick up a new video card, you could get a water block for it and an XSPC kit. Then you could just keep the H100 on your CPU and use the new XSPC kit just for the video card. Or if you wanted, you could sell the H100, take the money from the sale of that, and buy a CPU water block and 2nd radiator and run both the CPU and Video card on the same loop.

You have plenty of options.

As far as Haswell goes, I haven't checked, but I would doubt that the H100 you already have will work on it (its a different socket, but it MIGHT), so you might consider that in your decision to keep 2 loops or sell your H100 and go with just 1 loop. If you sell the H100 and Haswell does need a different waterblock, the only thing you will need to get when you change CPU's is a new waterblock. Your radiators, hoses, fittings, pump, reservoir, etc will ALL work with the new CPU design. That's another advantage with a "custom loop".

I really wanted to get a loop going, I'm not to worried about the socket changing or anything, I don't plan to sell my x58 stuff giving it to my younger brother when I upgrade. Right now my video cards are non reference and they are not worth the cost for waterblocks but I want a radiator large enough to handle the gtx 770/780 and a cpu. The rx360 should be good I think I believe but I'm not sure.

Is rx360 not enough for 1 gpu and cpu? I know they aren't out yet but lets say sandy bridge or ivy bridge each with a decent overclock to 4.5ghz or so.

Well, School and other duties has kept me incredibly busy for what feels like forever, but I have free time! wheee.gif
That means ROUTING TUBING and LEAK TESTING my rig biggrin.gif
Unfortunately, that also means I could use a bit of help here.... But you guys are all AWESOME so I have no doubt I'll get the assistance I need! thumb.gif
HERE'S MY RIG AS IT SITS:

I have been struggling to figure out how best to run my tubing for a while; initially, I was going to have the pump under the EK res and connected together via Bitspower Male-Male Rotary Adapter, but I don't trust the res clamps (the EK ones are absolute junk, so I spent weeks/months finding acceptable ones, ending up with the same type used on Bitspower Multi-Z reservoirs).
I also acquired an XSPC Single-5.25 Bay Res, and I want to use both reservoirs as it will reduce the "white water" effect, make bleeding much easier, and provide more options for drain/fill ports.
So, I figured that I can have my pump tucked up and out of the way, in the 5.25 bay.
HERE'S HOW THE PUMP IS SITUATED (using Bitspower 90deg Rotary Adapter + BP Male-Male Coupler/Adapter):


My questions:
1) Is this an acceptable way to have the pump mounted? It will not be "permanent", as I will be getting an MCP35X2-Housing within the coming months in order to utilize both of the MCP35X pumps I have.
Also, the DVD-R/W will be removed after everything I need is loaded off the discs and onto the PC, after which I will put an 80x15mm fan in the bay below the pump to provide airflow across the bottom of the pump, cooling the PCB.
2) What way should I route the tubing?
I was thinking either:
A) Bay Res -> Pump -> CPU -> EX420 -> GPU -> UT60 240 -> EK Res -> Bay Res
~OR~
B) Bay Res -> Pump -> UT60 240 -> GPU -> EX420 -> CPU -> EK Res -> Bay Res
ANY ADVICE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!
3) Where do I put my FILL PORT and DRAIN VALVE??
I have quite a few fittings "left over", and the ones I have in regards to the above are a Bitspower triple-rotary "Y" fitting and a Bitspower Ball-Valve Open/Close "Stop" Fitting, and a number of others as seen in the picture below:

I was thinking, maybe have the drain come off the EK res, but what about the fill port?
Thank you SO MUCH for any and all help! I've been struggling with this for a while, and I figured I'd ask the experts!

Try te get the drain from your bottom rad, this gives you multiple options.

What kind of housing will you get for the mcp35x?

Make sure the pump is below and after the reservoir.

Sort answer, yes, it's enough. Generally you want to have 120mm equivalent of radiator per device cooled PLUS another 120mm equivalent for a buffer. Now there are always exceptions to the "guideline" ... like if you are running a 3970K CPU with 6 cores ... that really should count as 2. Same if you have a video card with 2 cores (like an nVidia 590 or 690), that will count as 2.

But your basic 3770K and nvidia 680 can run on a single RX360 radiator. Would it do better with more radiator (say a 2nd one, even an RX240 in the bottom/front of the Switch 810 case? Sure. biggrin.gif

But it'll work on just a single 360 radiator.

Have you tried contacting Xnine. He is the NZXT rep here, he might be able to help you with that.
