Looks like if you went Res/Pump to top rad to CPU to GPU to bottom rad to Res it would be cleaner looking.

it is, i see someone water-cooling inventory and go berzerk figuring out builds down the road and will
it be better to deal now rather than latter.. i think i'd be a rich man if i sell off all my water-cooling spares..

My water cooling plan:
1. Build water cooling system
2. Upgrade water cooling system
3. Sell old parts
4. Repeat numbers 2 and 3 forever

I seem to be on Superericla's plan.

Humifold - nice job, but I do agree with others - cut the tubing down. I would go res/pump>top rad>cpu>gpu>bottom rad.
Your temps are unlikely to change. Temps do not really change until the water changes and it isn't really affected by loop order.

Or you could leave it alone and just enjoy it. tongue.gif

If you do change it i would add a T line and a drain at your lowest point.

Cheers.

congrats...
can't put my finger on it, but there seems to be miles of hose in this build?

if you swing the upper rad 180° it should "tighten up" the tubing. making the
tubing not cross-over each other. i think that is what is happening.

or go:
res/pump>lower rad>GPU>CPU>upper rad>res/pump
might gain 1°-2°, but not so much tubing to clutter the mobo and hardware.

since the GPU is the warmest, cool it first and then the CPU..

have you also thought about making the lower rad as an intake not exhaust?
its taking your front intake fans and dumping right out of the case.

airdeano

The hoses are much shorter in real life. The photo/internet add a few feet redface.gif

What you are saying makes total sense. I know the loop order actually doesn't matter since it equalizes over the course of the entire run. Mentally, I was just trying to avoid going from my GPU and then dumping that warm water right into my CPU. I will definitely be tweaking this over time.

Thanks for all the help from other threads too man!

I just wanted to say that I dig the black/white look..it's pretty wild. On one of my old set ups I had probably 3-4 feet of hose running from res>pump>cpu>gpu>radiator.. when i re-did it i took probably a whole foot of hose out, but didn't notice any difference in temperatures or performance.. i think once everything was pressurized and the pump was doing its job, it all just moved it at the same rate anyways.. but still, it looks awesome

Thanks man!

I think i need to take a few inches off the tube going from the GPU to the bottom rad. With the door on I see some pressing. It hasn't affected anything (with door off same temps) but I don't like it. I wish I had the EVGA FTW board so it was full on black and white with a dash of red, but I bought the Asus board before I decided to W/C.

I noticed that the tubing going from the GPU to the bottom rad was being pushed by the 650D door and it was pinching it some and causing it to bend closed some. My idle GPU temps were still 30-31C and my CPU was 35-37C, but it was irritating me.

I went ahead and drained it and shortened the tube so the door wasn't against it. Voila! Now my GPU idles 27-28C and my GPU is idling at 33-35C.

EDIT: On a side note it's fun to watch the temps hit like 22C when I first start filling the loop with the distilled water sitting in my fridge.
