[Build Log] Deep Thought - Case Labs MH10 Water Cooled EVGA SR-2 Build - Page 4

post #31 of 76
Thread Starter 
OK a little update teaser...parts rolling in...

post #32 of 76
Thread Starter 
So here's the line of thought. I want it even quieter now that it's overclocked. I also wanted a bit more sophisticated control and feedback for the water cooling. Peak flows were a bit marginal (1 gallon/m) with the high restriction system I have currently. So I'm doing a single loop variation with two pump loops from a single reservoir for heat balancing.

Delivered so far....
Aquaero 5 Pro
Poweradjust 2 x 2
Aquastream XT pump
2x Aquacomputer flow meters
4 x 480 radiators:
Keeping 1 x of the originai Black Ice SR-1.
Adding 2 x AlphaCool NexXxos XT 45 Full Copper 480 and 1 x AlphaCool NexXxos ST30 Full Copper 480
Bitstream Water Tank Z-Multi 250
Case Labs 68mm Ventilated Top
Case Labs 4x120 horizontal rad mount
Some AP-15s
Various and sundry Bitspower bits....

So here's the loop plan:

Shared Reservoir
|
|---- Pump A --> Rad 1 --> Rad 2 --> MB Mosfet Block --> CPU 1 --> CPU 2 --> shared reservoir
|
|
|--- Pump B --> Rad 3 --> Rad 4 --> GPU Block --> MB Block --> shared reservoir

Thoughts?

Have you found a PQ graph for all the water blocks? That would help to know if it will work ok.

The EK-D5 Dual Pump Top is two D5s in series, which almost doubles pressure, but reduces flow rate. You're running two sub-loops in parallel, so each loop will get 1/2 flow rate at the same pressure. If you run both pumps at setting 5, that would give you about 2gpm at 7psi. The two CPU water blocks would be about 5 PSI @ 1gpm, then you have to add the mobo block and two rads.

The loop looks good as long you run the pumps pretty high so you can get at least .8 or .9 gpm through both sub-loops. The only thing you might want to do is try to find some PQ graphs and make sure that both of those sub-loops have the same pressure drop, otherwise you'll want to add a valve to one so you can manually set them to equal flow rates.

[Edit]
If on the other hand, you are meaning that in the above diagram, pump A is actually two pumps (dual D5), and pump B is your new XT, then you should be well over 1gpm in the D5 loop and about 1gpm in the XT loop and have no need for them to be equal restriction.

The XT is specifically designed to be an efficient pump at 1gpm and under (which is the normal target for most water solutions)

wow! nice build also didnt know the sr-2 was mac compatible. would be a kick ass render machine.

Sweet build! thumb.gif Gets my mind ticking over about possible applications for this case. I generally don't like cases until I've seen what can be put in them and what space there is to work with after. Ideas are accumulating already biggrin.gif

I must say though... I nearly screamed when I saw the italian kitchen theme going on with the cables redface.gif

Well, pump A is actually a Swiftech MCP35x2 and pump B is the Aquastream XT. Flow rates should be fine I think, I used Martin's restriction graphs to guesstimate where I would be. Ideally I'll have both running at about 50-75% full power to keep noise down. D5 dual top has been recruited for another build to follow....

I really hate to sleeve, so I've put off (and put off some more) sleeving everything I could. I sleeved the fan, pump, and drive power supplies. Found Seasonic cables an absolute ***** to remove pins....just the demotivation I needed to blow off sleeve everything. So cabling is a bit of a mess for now. Maybe forever. Still toying with doing another Case Labs build, and if I do so, I'll probably do that one "right". when I'm not actually using machine for work, I'll neaten it up....

Deconstruction tonight. Hopefully will piece everything together this weekend instead of roasting outside. I should only have to make a couple of changes on the motherboard.

I think he thinks your running osx on it?
Anyways the build looks great, especially the case.
