Laing DDC-1 and DDC-1T Owners Gallery - Page 4

post #31 of 347
Hey, just saw this thread, and coincidently I've been putting together an upgrade to The Black Phantom. Upgrading to an i7-3770K, new mobo, RAM,etc.

Since the Ivy Bridge chips run so hot, I decided to try a dual loop. Previously, I had the original i7-920 (DO) which has been a great processor for the past 4 years - still in the family. In that build I used one loop for both the CPU and GPU (see The Black Phantom Album link in Signature below). Now for the 3770K, I thought I'd try a dual loop to separate the heat between the CPU and GPU. Why? Well, I want to see if the GPU stays cooler at idle when the CPU is overclocked and stressed.

To run the two loops I chose the ultra affordable DDC-1T'S sold by bmaverick. The CPU loop will have the XSPC Res/top on the pump, while the GPU loop will just have the XSPC non-res top on it's pump. CPU loop will have Alphacool's Nexxus UT60 360 radiator, while the GPU loop will have a Alphacool's Nexxus UT60 240 radiator - both are 60mm thick and matched with GT-2150 fans.

I'm no master modder like other guys on OCN. Just a simple, practical, clean build with a few LEDs for color. I put Blue on the Reservior Top/pump and Red on the bottom pump/top to see how they look. The blue makes the acrylic look really crisp, while the red looks like it's about to overheat and catch fire wink.gif Used the thickest VELCRO I could find to absorb and dampen any vibrations, and also to keep them in place...

That's it for today. Tomorrow I'll finish wiring the motherboard, install the fan controller and connect all 7 radiator/case fans. I was thinking I'll pick up some more blue LEDs to put in the Raystorm's acrylic, and have the top loop be all blue with the bottom loop all red for a Heaven and Hell look (Heaven=Blue=Cool, Hell=Red=Hot). What do you guys think? Or I could have both pumps blue for cool coolant, and the CPU and GPU red being they're the heat producers... yes/no?

BIG thanks to bmaverick for selling these DDC-1T's for an awesome price!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! cheers.gif

Love the dual colors. I personally would not change a thing. It has that TRON look inside. Very C-O-O-L in my book!

Hope you guys don't mind me asking in here.... all I've used so far are the old XSPC in-res pumps, and D5's.
Getting a new build going soon and want to change things up, might as well consider different pumps. I will be running a cpu block, two rads (at first!) and gpu block(s). Scaling via the ddc pumps, that is multiple pumps is an option I might want to explore, since like I said I've been there and done that with D5's.

Could someone explain the difference between the ddc pumps, i.e. 350, 355, 35x? Or point me in the right direction?
Thanks!

Thanks, I looked there but not really seeing what I need. I'll look around the net some more.

Now that I find puzzling. What info could you need that would not be found at Martin's Liquid Lab?

Martin does/did a great job but I never found much in the way of definitive answers for the flow rate of multiple pumps in series. i.e. showing the difference in flow rate between a single pump top versus dual pump top in serial. And going a step beyond that by adding an auxiliary pump(s) after the fact to give a more concise picture on the benefits versus the negatives, like heat, vibration and when the increase in pressure is a pointless waste.

Martin did an awesome job and it's too bad he's had to give up reviewing product. If I had the money I'd see if I could take over for him because these are things that I as a water cooler would like to know. I don't know of a Reviewer(maybe I'm still too green) that gives us this type of in depth information. It's almost always a comparison from one product to another. Which I really do love but well I think you can get the gist of my thought process here. :think:
