How Should I Route The Hoses?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I don't know how to route the hoses in my system, can someone help me?
I've been thinking about it for a little and I just can't think of anything that doesn't seem too crazy, I'm new to water cooling so I don't know what will work and won't.

I drew this on Paint.net (don't judge me tongue.gif)

not to knock what you have there, but why not just go a 360 60mm and Aa 240 in
the basement. you can drop the 120 on the exhaust and eliminate the RAM cooler.
res>pump>240 rad>gpu>cpu>360 rad>res

that way you have less hose and restictions, pump is already in the basement
and the rad can cool the coolant before the GPU(s). just a suggestion.

do you think a 120 in the basement would be good enough? a 240 cant fit without modding from what ive seen. and just so i have a plan, if i did keep the RAM cooler, where would that go in the loop?

I like your idea. I just started a thread and someone answered smile.gif. they posted a picture of a ruler next to the basement of the 800D. You can put a 240 rad in two ways so i think im going to go with your idea. I think I will put it on its side though, to reduce the amount of Modding needed. what do you think I should do? on the floor and have to cut holes in the case or on its side?

And i still have that ram question haha: if i did keep the RAM cooler, where would that go in the loop?

In that case put it after the gpu. If you have the money to spend on it all the power to you thumb.gif I wish I had more monies tongue.gif .

i had a 120 in the bottom on my 800d 60mm and a 360mm on top i got good temps. just make it look clean and less tubing the better.

now i run SLI (more heat and restrictions) with a 480 60mm on the out side of the back of the case. keeps it all nice a cold.
