Frist WC 800D set up, please look over!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
hey all!

well im starting my jump into WC my 800D. been looking at alot of examples of set-ups and how it all works (still a nood). but this is what i have come up with for my build.

1. XSPC RX360 Triple 120mm Radiator Rev 2.
3. Noctua NF-P12 120mm x 25mm Fan
1. XSPC Dual 5.25" Bay Reservoir - w/ VPP655
1. Swiftech Apogee HD High Performance 4-Port CPU Waterblock - Black
6. Bitspower Ultimate G 1/4 Thread 1/2" ID x 3/4" OD Compression Fitting - Matte Black
10 feet. PrimoFlex PRO LRT Tubing 1/2"ID 3/4"OD with 1/8" Wall - Black
2. Bitspower G1/4" Matte Black Dual Rotary 45-Degree Compression Fitting CC5 For ID 1/2" OD 3/4" Tube
2. bottles of EK Blood Red

i plan to water cool the GPU but waiting till the NV comes out with theirs to see if i want AMD or NV. but for the GPU i plan to run a RX 120 on the bottom of the case. i don't want to do much modding since i like the case as is. also plan to do SLI/Crossfire.

Should i get the dual loop bay Res?
will the tubing fit in the stock WC holes in the case?

any advise will help a lot.

thanks,
matt

I think it sounds like a solid plan....

WARNING!!!! this is just a start, water cooling is very addicting and I am sure you will enjoy the hobby you are about to get into.

I do not recommend dual loops... one loop will do the job just great.

Tubing will work fine in the stock case grommets

I'd get a raystorm of a surpeme hf instead of that apogee hd

Swiftech blocks are poorly machined and are higher restriction

you picked a great case to dive into watercooling. I used a 700d for my first, and only, loop and it made everything so easy. As nick said, I'd just stick with one loop, especially if you don't want to mod the case at all. Tubing goes through the stock grommets with ease. I ran 5/8" OD tube through the grommets behind the mobo tray and didn't case any clearance issues with the back panel. Nick is right about the addictive nature of watercooling as well. I've had my loop running for about 8 months and I've already dismantled for upgrades and changes multiple times, and plan to do so again either this weekend or next. As for the coolant, I've only heard good things about Mayhem's dyes, I'd look into that as an alternative. I've only ever used distilled water myself, so I'm not speaking from experience, just my countless hours lurking on OCN. Anyway, good luck and have fun building! PM me if you have any questions or need some help from a fellow Obsidian owner thumb.gif

For optimal air flow you will need to have fans on the side window. My buddies temps dropped 10 degrees on his gpus when he did this he has two loops using the 800d

This is very true... I added one 120mm fan to the door of my 700D.and it made a huge difference... but my 700D wasn't stock biggrin.gif

not necessarily true. All I did was flip the rear exhaust to intake and installed a 120mm fan in the 5.25" bays as intake. Now there is only about a 3*C difference from when I have the side panel off than when I have it on, with CPU and both GPU's running full load. But there are also two 120mm's in the bottom psu chamber as intakes through the radiator as well.

yes its true cant really say anything unless you have done this. he noticed a 10 degree difference with the new window on and doesn't have to leave his side panel cracked open like he did before.
