first time water cooling - Page 3

okay i think that makes sense...i think...

so this is how my set up is as far as where everything is going to go... so the res, will be the highest point in the loop i guess... and then it will go to the pump witch will be sitting under neithe the computer... becuase my desk has this shelf thing for the comp, so it has a space underneith for stuff... so i was thinking i would put the pump under there and same with the radiator, (i was just thinking, would that be bad actualy cus the pump as to pump against gravity??) then it will go up to the cpu and then back to the res.... so where would i put the T??

OK The res at the highest point is good, easier to get the air out...The pump pumping up is OK...The extra tubing doing it like that is not really good, more tubing = more resistence...As long as it's not over a couple feet more it's not really going to hurt to much since you'll be using the D-5...Your T would go between the pump and rad...In general you want to keep your tubing as short as possible...But your only cooling the cpu so I would say go for it....If later on you add more WB's and it doesn't cool to your satisfaction you might want to rearrange your loop and shorten your tubing some...EDIT: I hade some extra time so here is a pic.EDIT AGAIN: You want the rad to be open on both sides, so air will blow through it...You can mount vertical or horizontil doesn't matter as far as that goes...I dont think thats how you spell horizontil but you get the idea......And you wont need the drain port doing it like you are just add a length of tubing long enough to reach a bucket for draining..Just fold the end up several times and zip-tie it tight, keep checking it to make sure it's not going to leak..Here is a link for some plugs, you might want to stick one in the end before you fold it up and zip-tie it.....Danger Den :: Tubing :: Fittings :: Tubing Plugs
