Rate my new watercooled system & what loop to make

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm close to ordering my new system but I'd like it to be rated and maybe improved before I order the parts. biggrin.gif

Hardware:

  • Intel Core i7 3930K
  • ASUS Rampage IV Extreme Republic of Gamers
  • 2x Crucial m4 128GB - Solid state drive
  • 2x Seagate Barracuda 7200.12 Harddrive
  • G.Skill ARES RAM 32GB: 4x8 Quad channel, 1866 Mhz, CL10, 1.5V
  • LG BH10LS30 Blueray burner
  • Corsair Obsidian Series 800D
  • ATI Radeon 6990 (I will buy a second card soon)
  • Corsair AX 1200


Watercooling parts:

  • Swiftech Apogee HD CPU Block - GOLD - LIMITED EDITION
  • Koolance VID-AR699
  • Feser Tube UV - HighFlow - 1/2 ID - 3/4 OD - WHITE 2.5M Pack
  • 13MM (1/2) Bitspower compression fittings - G1/4 Matt Black
  • 13MM (1/2 ID - 3/4 OD) Bitspower compression fittings 90 degreesRotary - G1/4 Matt Black
  • Aerocool Shark Fan White Edition 120mm Fan
  • Feser Aqua - Ultra Pure Water
  • Feser Base - FB - Corrosion Blocker
  • Silver KillCoils by iandh
  • Laing D5-MCP655 12V
  • EK-D5 X-TOP G1/4 Rev.2
  • XSPC RX360 Black
  • XSPC RX240 Black
  • XSPC RX120 Black
  • Bitspower water res Z-Multi 250
  • Swiftech MCB-120 Radbox
  • Koolance 3-Fan Radiator Shroud



What would be the best loop to make? I'm putting the 360 rad in push pull (shroud covers fans on top of case), the 240 with a radbox on the back outside the case and the 120 on the botton next to the psu. The res will be above the pump next to the HDDs. Would 1 pump be enough?

I'm also going to use this poorly drawn draining system:
418

  • Bitspower Valve
  • Bitspower Matt Black Sealing Plug for 1/2 ID Tube
  • Bitspower Carbon Black Y-Block Fitting 3x ID G1/4 Rotary

Any suggestions, things I need to know?

Sweet looking stuff! Just a bit of advice, I have the same BitsPower res and it is HUGE in the 800D. I mean HUGE lol. I have used it for less than a week and I am already regretting buying a 250 ml res. I can sell you mine if you want it haha wink.gif . Also visualize everything and make sure you like what you see on paper.

Also, I think 1 RX 360 and 1 RX240 should be able to cool everything in the 800D. You can also keep it all inside the case so you don't have to worry about keeping anything outside. 1 pump should do the trick.

Good luck with the build and hope to see pics up once its all put together!

I am just throwing this out there... but, maybe also consider a CaseLabs M8 over the 800D.

I only say that because I built my watercooled system in a 600T and found myself wishing I had given the M8 a thought.

Do you think my MCP655 + ek top would fit under the res with still place on top for the top rad tubes?
Or would the 150ml be a better idea?

I'm going to overclock my cpu and I will be adding another 6990 vulcano so that's why I took another 120 rad. One day when I'm confident I wont destroy my case I will mod the bottom of the case to fit a 240 rad so I can have even lower temps biggrin.gif

Wow! Those cases are HUGE stun.gif But I like the looks of the 800D with white tubing and white sleeved cables much more biggrin.gif
