sup guys, i would need advice for my watercooling loop

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Here is my set up tongue.gif

inside a HAF 922
running with a 2600k overclock to 4.2ghz.. dont realy need more than this lol
on the motherboard ASUS P8Z68 V
with 2x ASUS 670 GTX DCII



I was only planning to watercool my CPU but you know.. it was just too lovable to remove all these fan.. there was still some on my GPU lol
had some problem to fit all of this but i made it with what i had lol

(im actually running this with a triple monitor in surround setup)
my temp still not that bad on full load

50-55C on my CPU
and on both GPU arround 50-60C

im actually waiting for some more fitting to put that reservoir inside etc + a fan controller
ive bought a 1x120MM rad > http://www.ekwb.com/shop/radiators-fans-accessories/radiators/ek-coolstram-xt/ek-coolstream-rad-xt-120.html
and 3 new fan...

but here is my question... how would the loop look like...

i had in my mind to do this..

Reservoir > Pump > 2x120MM rad > CPU > 1x120mm rad > Dual GPU > Reservoir...

and now i see some build...

Reservoir > Pump > 2x120MM rad > 1x120mm rad > CPU > Dual GPU > Reservoir...

Reservoir > Pump > 2x120MM rad > CPU > Dual GPU > 1x120mm rad > Reservoir...

Reservoir > Pump > 2x120MM rad > Dual GPU > 1x120mm rad > CPU > Reservoir...

i would say right now... im a bit lost.. id need some advice on what would be the best for me right now

thanks in advance smile.gif

The order in your loop doesn't matter. The temps will stabilize themselves pretty evenly over your entire loop no matter where you place what. All that matters is that your pump is right after your rez as to not let your pump run dry and burn up.

Looks like PepeLapiu beat me to it again! tongue.gif I guess I'll have to stop walking away from my computer momentarily when typing up responses hehe. As he already said though, it really does not matter outside the reservoir feeding into your pump to prevent burnout of said pump. Some people also just do it certain ways to appease their own particular needs or desires for tubing management or style inside their case.

They do when their wife is calling them. A wise man once said, "happy wife=happy life!". That right there be the truth. I prefer to avoid pissing her off, because then I end up being miserable until she forgets about what pissed her off (which always seems like forever). tongue.gif

Yeah, it's a DDC variant so that is more than fine for your loop. Personally, I prefer D5's over anything else, but I wouldn't waste money getting one since you already have one that will work.


Edit: Martin did a review on that particular pump if you decide you want to read more about it to ease your mind. He seems to have rated it fairly well too. thumb.gif

That 120 is going on the back where the exhaust is? Good choice smile.gif
Oh, and where you have got 2 graphic cards connected, you could easily simplify the tubing route by using a 90 degrees compression fittings and going across not around.

Edit: Something like that:
