Swiftech MCP655-B pump in a Switch 810 case

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I'm in the process of building my first WC setup.

My specs:

Gigabyte 990fx -ud3 MB (will switch to an ivy bridge mb and cpu around Christmas)
AMD 1090t cpu hooked up to the Antec Kuhler 620
16GB GSkill Sniper 1866Mhz Ram
Xion 800W psu (2 years old will get a better one soon)
2x 60GB OCZ Agility 3 ssds in raid 0
Sapphire 7970 gpu (w/coil whine)

I just got a better case the Nzxt Switch 810 which from I read is really popular and wc friendly.

I don't have all the parts yet to hook up my wc loop but here's the list so far:

XSPC 750 x240 water cooling kit (I know, should have gotten the x360 instead)
Sfwiftech Komodo 7970 full cover waterblock
10 Mansoon Chrome Compression fittings (7/16-5/8)
PrimoChill blue 7/16-5/8 tubing
Swftech MCP655-B with speed controller

My plan is to buy either a 360 or 420 rad to place on the top of my case in push/pull and then use the 240rad that came with the xspc kit on the bottom next to the psu also in push/pull config.

The loop I have in plan is XSPC pump+rez (IN MY 5.25in drive bay) out
>240 rad on the bottom
>swiftech pump mounted on top of my psu using the double sided tape it came with
>7970 waterblock
>top rad
>cpu waterblock
>back into the XSPC pump+rez


I was also thinking of going xspc pump+rez to swiftech pump then bottom rad by mouting the pump between my hdd cage and mb by drilling the holes a little bigger since the pump screws are slightly bigger then the prediller switch 810 holes.

But the main question is:

Is it a bad idea to place my swiftech pump on top of the psu (the hot side of the psu since it's mounted with the facing down) by using the double sided adhesive tape the pump came with or will it get too hot and possibly melt/destroy the adhesive tape?

Any other suggestions as to where I can place this pump? I already bought it and I wanna use it in my loop.

I'm also thinking of adding a ram or nb waterblock as well to the loop.

Thanks.

My opinion is not to mount on top of your PSU. The pump vibration can't help the PSU. And if you get a drip, it may still find it's way inside the PSU.

I have my D5 on the floor of my haf 932 case bolted through a Gel pad. There are universal brackets too that allow it to be placed in various locations such as the back of the case as well. Good luck. smile.gif
