Thanks, I will take your advice and skip the mosfet. Might even consider a other board then. Maybe maximus v gene, sabertooth.... have to think about the main colour as well. Also now I can go back to 1/2 tubing.

Will draw a new loop when i am back including fans....

Thanks again for all helping me out! This is my first build and I Learn everyday.

Still open questions:

Which fans to use for push pull. Hope to use pwm fans? Managed by mobo. ( maybe this should go in ac forum).

ok will keep it to single loop and the ap 15 with a controller ( Nztx sentry mix). Shall I put the pump on the cpu fan control, or separate controller? Switch MCP35X has pwm.

Drawing is showing suggested loop as recommended by many here in this thread specially the remarks about the bleeding of the 240 rad ( connections on top) and reservoir connection to purge the air. Thanks for that. The Switch810 will give me some room for shuffling around the pump and reservoir to get straight tubing.

any suggestions for the inlet fan on the bottom and exhaust top aft ( 120 or 140 mm )

also I have tried to put in the airflow in the drawing, intake front bottom, and exhaust top aft.

suggestion for placing a drain and fill tube?

again many thanks for your input, this is gonna be my first build. And I am still rwading/learning/looking how to do it.rolleyes.gif

It might just be an oversight, but make sure your pump is actually connected to the bottom of the res...

You'll probably want to experiment with the top air flow. The way you have it right now, any heat you pull from the front 240 gets pushed into the top 360. If your case has really good air flow this may not be an issue, but if not, then you're likely to actually heat up your water with the top rad from the 240 heat plus chassis heat (motherboard, hard drives, other components) instead of cooling it.

The thing to keep in mind is that air is _really_ bad at holding heat. That's why fan speed makes such a large difference on radiators. Also, the amount of heat you transfer with radiators depends on the temperature difference between the water and air, so having the coolest possible air going through a radiator helps quite a bit. For example: my ambient air temp is 24C, but my chassis temp is 36C; so taking into account a normal delta T of 10C, I would actually be pumping heat into my radiator (34C vs 36C) instead of cooling it if my fans were set to blow chassis air through it.

I would set any radiator fans to intake and all other case fans to exhaust.

thanks, pffff again something new:thumb:smile.gif. thought that would create a vacuum.

If your rads are pushing in and exhaust fans out, then a vacuum is good as the other case fans will work in series with the radiator fans to pull more air through. In an air-cooled case, it's usually best to shoot for 0 pressure in the case (same in as out), but when your feeding radiators, it's best to promote as much air through the radiators as possible.
