I personally like tubing better.

 

Also, wouldn't it be better to push water down through the graphics cards, not up?

I'm not a big fan of all of the crystal link sets and the random red fittings. It looks off. I would suggest clear tubing with Oklahoma red coolant and white compression fittings!

I am so in luv... Why don't you have the two D5 in line with each other, And the GPU parallel???

Not a fan of the random red fittings as well... But like the crystal link.

I would consider a slightly different flow path:

1st loop:

Res > D5 > left RAM > CPU > right RAM > mosfet > OU res

2nd loop:

Res > D5 > GPU2 > GPU 1 > motherboard > AQ5 blocks > OU res

3rd loop:

Res loop as planned.


For the second loop I would plumb the GPUs like this:

Seems like in a closed loop....you end up with the same effort whether you are pushing the water up the backside so that it can come down through the graphics cards...or vice versa. I wouldn't think there would be any difference in flow. Plus...this way, the tubing run is much cleaner. I think. Suggest a path with water coming down the graphics cards.

The red wouldn't be random if I go that route. They would be at both ends of every fitting/tubing run. So it wouldn't look random.....I think.

Can't do dye in the coolant....because I'm showing off the reservoirs. Must be clear coolant.

Didn't want to go parallel on GPU's because I would be worried about enough flow. Mandrix had his temps go up like 8 degrees or something when he switched his GPU's to parallel.

How would you run the 2nd loop from motherboard to the AQ5 blocks? They are not shown in the picture...but when I have all my SATA cables hooked up...they fill up the area to the right of the graphics card pretty well. Especially all the SATA breakouts from the raid card. I think it might get messy to have tubing/fittings going out that way.

Okay, then how about custom dyed tubing and white compression fittings? Use plain old water to cool it! I think that would look AWESOME!

Crimson tubing is a possibility. I might plumb one up with just compression fittings and tubing to see what it looks like.
