need a special rad

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I am going to be moving my sig rig into the new Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 case, pretty excited about it, i am going to be doing a full build log as i am going to be doing some modding to the case. I will also be doing a full written review. Pretty excited, and as any experienced builder does before they start a build, i am doing my research. I mocked up how i am going to want to do the loop in MS paint, and i kinda ran into a snag.
I am going to be modding the top of the case to get a 360 Rad in the top, and i am going to be putting a UT60 240 rad in the front. The UT60 has a bunch of spots where i can put a barb, so the in is going to be its typical in location, but the out is going to be on the top of the rad ( when the rad is standing up in the front of a case ). The out is going to be straight up into the 360 rad.

sorry this is turning into a long read.

Basically what i need is a normal thickness 360 rad, with a similar FPI to the UT60, that has a barb fitting on each end. I need low FPI because i am going for ABSOLUTE silence and i am going to be using 1000RPM fans at 7 volts, so they are going to be spinning at around 700rpm, i will be doing push pull tho.


here is my MS paint rendering: flow is counter clockwise. also, is the GPU setup possible? have it go in one side and out the other, but both on top. ( < made no sense... )



i know it looks weird where i have the res, but here is a view from the back where its going to be mounted, its a swiftech micro res.




basically i need this rad, but with lower FPI

Yes that GPU setup is perfectly fine. They will run in parallel which greatly reduces the restriction of the loop.
As for a rad choice, the only one I can think of besides the XSPC is the GTS (or GTX) XFlow.
However the GTS rads have 30 FPI.

Is discretely running a tube (possibly behind the mobo tray) an option?

Uhm, not really. I'll be running 3/8"tubing. I don't think I'd be able to get it to make those tight turns.
It's good to know I can get the gpus plumbed like that.
The reason I want a rad with a barb on each end is just to keep the tubing nice and clean.

the gpu flow isnt parallel. hes talking gpu1 top in, out gpu1 bottom into 2nd gpu top, out 2nd gpu back into gpu1 bottom then out gpu1 top to res. at least it sure looks like that. im confused by his 'picture'.

as far as i know( i dont KNOW) there isnt a separator between the inlets and outlets. the water would basically sit in the bottom gpu block. why not run a y splitter before and after and cool them in parallel? less restriction and both will get the same temp water coming in? i know it wont be the clean look you want but, wait til you see the mess im planning.
