Best Place for Quick Disconnects and Drain Line

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi there I'm wondering if you guys could tell me the best place to put quick disconnects on my water cooling build. Also if you can tell me if its best to put a drain line direct from 1 of 3 outs on my EK Bay Spin Res or where to put a t line. I will post a picture below thanks in advance.

Its recommended to place QDC's before and after each of your blocks so you can remove those from the loop if needed.

You can put the drain line off of the res. My suggestion would be a T connector on the tube going from the res to the pump.

On a side note, why do you have so much cooling capability? The RX360 could probably handle the 580/3930K by itself. Also, you should just route your tubing in the most efficient (shortest) manner possible instead of trying to go the radiator in between each section. I can explain why if you want smile.gif

I apologize to the OP for the threadjack but I am incorporating 2 rads in my case as well and I am having a headache trying to do precisely what The Jesus says you shouldn't. I would appreciate it if The Jesus could elaborate a bit more on this? If I were to hazard a guess, I would say it would be something to do with the temp of the coolant in the loop evening out after a while regardless of whether its before or after the rad?

Bascially the water temp between blocks doesn't change much. For most systems the water coming out of a GPU block (Under load) will be about 1C, at most if not Overclocking, warmer than when it went it. Obviously if you have two GPUs it'll be again at most 2C warmer. I would only try putting a rad inbetween the GPUs and CPU if I had 3-4 GPUs and all where Overclocked, then it would be worth the effort I imagine.

As for OP, I've thought a little about QDC but I can't really think of much of a use for them either lol Maybe the CPU block could be useful if you remount a lot, be it because your trying different TIMs or just wanna try remounting because your not happy with temps.
