New WC Config: Diagram

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
After having much issues with a RX360 rad in my switch 810 and my Rampage IV Extreme, I have decided to try this all over again! And reason being is being my rampage iv has crapped itself so currently awaiting for the store i purchased it from to test it and give me an exchange over the counter.

Now i've decided to go with a AX360 Rad, and reason being at just 4mm thick along with 25mm thick fans, leaves me plenty of room for my 8-Pin CPU Power Connector and by that at least 2cm clearance or just a tad over which is great. It seems that rad is on par with the RX360 or even better! I will be coupling this with 6x Corsair SP120 2350rpm (heard higher static pressure fans with higher RPM are better for the thinner rads?)

I will also be adding some angled rotary fittings to my loop this time around! I think i'll need 5 all up i think? I've added a diagram of how I would like to set it up, but unsure with rotary fittings (never used them before) Just wanted to confirm if it looks alright? I will have the raystorm waterblock on the side instead of having the logo on top and bottom.

Thoughts? I'm looking for a clean look but trying to go the most simplest route if that makes sense.

i would switch the rad around so that the barbs are towards the front of the case...

Why? If he does that, he will be looking at some tight curves or 90s going from the rad to the res, wouldn't he? He doesn't say which res/pump combo he is using, so the intake/outtake pattern is not completely known, but, they are all fairly similar.

The way he has it set up, I am note sure why he is even thinking he needs 45 or 90 fittings.

Using a xspc d5 rasa pump combo. The reasoning behind the 45degree fittings more so from rad to CPU block is because I want the shortest amount of hose from the rad to CPU. The way I had my hosing setup before it was bit of a tight fit from rad to CPU which resulted in using more hose.



As you will see in this persons setup the first hose from rad to CPU is a nice clean short loop which is why I thought I'd go for a 45degree fitting there and on the block and another from the blocks outlet to res/pump

I get it. In fact, I have several 45 and 90 in my set up to get a clean loop. According to work done by Martin (is there anything he doesn't cover) the impact of elbows is fairly minimal. To e, it still makes sense to minimize elbows when possible. If the ports on the rad are on the front, you are using a 90 for sure to get into the res, or a lot more tubing to make the bend. Coming from the back is, in my opinion, the better option.

I will say, you want to make sure that the flow is rad, block, res. If you add a GPU, then the loop will be rad, CPU, GPU, Res/pump, Rad. So, if your block has a preferred in/out, there might be a small change there.
