Help me set up my first loop in a cm 690 II. - Page 2

post #11 of 19
Take a look at the link to my post below and in fact the whole thread as lots of info about water cooling and the 690 II. Try and get the USB3 version of the case as the CPU cutout is in the correct place!!

I already have the case lol as my sig suggests, and as I said I already have the hdd bay removed. This wasnt so much a question about cases it was more help with the actuall loop. How do I know what direction it goes, best setup for it etc.
I am unsure now wither to get the rx240 and mount it at the bottom or get the rs 240 and put it at the top. Will the different in temps be huge?

Oh and ty for the link.

Hmmm it looks really nice and tidy with the rx240 rad at the bottom.
So what way does the loop go and in which direction. I will buy better tubing from amazon tho I am unsure of the size tho I know I need about 10 feet standard.

There's also a kit that has the EX 240 rad, 655 pump / res combo, and raystorm cpu block if you don't mind spending a little more on the loop. The EX 240 is in between the RX and RS as far as performance, the raystorm is a nice cpu block, and the 655 pump is nice to have if you ever plan to add more to the loop. One note, if you put the rad up top the fans might have to be installed in the top of the case pushing air in. It will depend on the mobo clearance though, the heatsinks on my mobo wouldn't let me put the fans on the bottom of the rad. Also I think if you want to put a 240 on the bottom your PSU needs to be 160mm in length or less. Here's a pic of my set up including a koolance drain which works nice. All I do to drain is insert large bear mug and open the drain.

The loop direction is reservoir - pump - GPU - bottom rad - CPU - top rad back to res.

The arrows in the pic show the air flow direction.
Bottom rad - Front fan intake, radiator fans push through radiator extract case bottom.
PSU - Intake case bottom, extract case rear.
Top rad - Fans mounted case top, push through radiator and rear fan extracts.

This gives nice temps, winter ambient temp is 21C and I get 36C CPU, 28C GPU idle, rising to 50-55C CPU 45C-49C GPU load.

Gentle Typhoon fans provide good pressure pushing air onto radiators so I have stuck with that. My case is pressure negative and I do get some dust build up on front and top filters and run the hoover over the case once a month. Internally there is very little dust so far.

The Gentle Typhoons have great push static pressure. I'm not sure how good they are for pull, generally I very much doubt that any fans would be as effective in a push only set-up. In my system I did consider putting the fans under than bottom rad and air pushing up through it and configuring the front fan as an oulet. This would make my case pressure positive but the main concern I had was possible vibration and the inlet filter underneath the fan getting blocked with dust over time.

Plenty of info about the Gentle Typhoons in the link below and if you have time the whole thread is a good read.
