Final spec check + Diagrams

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, finger is hovering over the buy button. Just need to decide on a few remaining things, here is what I have in my basket so far:

- EK-Supreme HF - Acetal + EN (Nickel)
- XSPC EX240 240mm Dual Fan Radiator
- EK Water Blocks EK-DCP 4.0 Pump
- 7/16" ID (5/8" OD) Masterkleer PVC Tubing Clear - 3.3 Metre Pack
- EK-PSC Compression (ID 7/16", OD 5/8") - G1/4 Black (8)
- EK Water Blocks EK-PSC Adapter 45° G1/4 Black (2)
- Phobya Nano-G 12 PWM LED Red (3)
- Mayhem Pre-Mix X1 UV Blood Red - 1Ltr
- Phobya ATX Bridging Plug (24 Pin)

I am in 2 minds about which reservoir to use. Here are the 2 layouts I have came up with:

Using EK Bay res:
568

Using EK DCP Combo res:
568

Any opinions on which would be better for performance, tube routing and tidyness etc would be great smile.gif

Thanks!

number 2 imo... why? because less tubing, less tubing = clean. the rest is fine I guess, just buy the parts and get your build going thumb.gif

What about this setup instead, would this work?

Layout #2 is my favorite. Res/pump combo out of the way in the HDD cage space = best for cabling IMO. Performance will be literally almost exactly the same regardless, so it's more of what look you're going for. Good choice on the 650D. I'm in a 500R, feel free to look at my build (though it's not necessarily relevant tongue.gif)
