NEED COMMENTS, SUGGESTIONS, THOUGHTS ON NEW PARALLELED LIQUID COOLING SETUP!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have this build:

Zalman Z11 Plus ATX Case
ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Professional MOBO
AMD FX-8350 8 Core Processor OC'd @ 4.8Ghz
Corsair Hydro Series H100i Water CPU Cooler
Cougar CMX1000 1000Watt PSU
32GB Corsair Vengeance CMZ16GX3M2A1866C10R DDR3 PC3-15000 1866 RAM
Corsair CMXAF1 RAM Fan Cooler
Corsair Force Series GS CSSD-F180GBGS-BK 180GB SSD
Samsung Series 8 PM810128GB SSD
Sapphire HD 6970 2GB GDDR5 with Accelero XTREME II Cooler Powercooler
HD6970 2GB GDDR5 Liquid Cooled Graphics Card Card OC'd to 1035Mhz GPU, 1450 Memory @ 1.343v
Corsair H70 Liquid Cooler with TTT Personalized Lip Fan Plate MOD

Im trying to do a new setup, something unique My modded Zalman Z11 Plus HF1 when finished should look like this, but its alot of stuff in a mid-atx case so im up for any suggestions..........
Also I have to fit two Corsair modules(floppy drive size) and a 2tb HDD somewhere but I dont know where yet...... :

Just wanted to see what people think about the setup or if they had better ideas......

i see two tubes going from res to rad, you only need one. I also see two tubes going from rad to VGAs, you should have only one and an SLI bridge to ensure they both get the same flow.

Also, I see res > rad > GPUs > back to res .....you need a pump somewhere in there, no? Unless I see your drawing wrong.

Basically, you want two loops sharing the same res, am I correct?

C'mon Peps its not that complicated really smile.gif
he has drawn three loops using modified AIO coolers and shared reservoir to share the cooling load. Its not a bad idea really.
Three rads, three pumps, three blocks, one reservoir.

He has labeled the flow system incorrectly though which is a bit confusing .... there is flow going to the radiators from the reservoir! smile.gif

Edit: Its not bad lateral thinking and would be great value with second hand coolers. Fitting all the lines to the reservoir will be the difficult part. I know a little bit about fitting pipes into large glass bottles as a result of a misspent youth and its quite difficult to do without shattering the glass or leaving a very rough and sharp edge on the holes.

I was fixated on the res and lost track of everything else.

The pumps are contained within the blocks. Also there is only two tube to each rad, there are three different rads.

You do need to re think your loop order with that pic though. In the drawing you have the pumps trying to suck water from the reservoir through the radiators and pumping straight to the reservoir.
The pumps should pump to the radiators and then to the reservoir.

Edit: If you just moved the red lines to the bottom of the reservoir and the yellow to the top and changed each "flow to" to "flow from" it would be alright. .

I may be wrong as far as which connection on each of the corsair pumps flow in which direction, but i did intentionally put the flow from RES to RAD then block and back again on purpose. Mainly because the processor and the GPUs when liquid cooled separately have better temps, generally because the CPU runs hotter and makes the average temp of the RES higher thus ineffectively cooling the GPUs, I figured the RES-to-RAD setup would fix it. But that's why i made this thread because I wanted input before I finalized the setup. And im on key with you about the glass thing, however I though ahead and nipped it in the butt by buying diamond circular bits that cut glass smooth and nice, and as far as it being sharp and also slightly cylindrical im planning on using rubber grommets(pic below) as pictured below which will seal(with some adhesive) and make a good hole to either provide a tight hose fit and seal with glue or try and fit compression fittings. Also I decided against a loop because the difference between my H100i and the H70's is the barb fitting and tube size, if I were to loop them together they would stall constrict the H100i. I have though about looping the two H70's though because it actually increases the performance overall of the flow and redundancy fail safe, but I didn't because of the fact that the first GPU will send its hot coolant to the second GPU which makes no sense to me to do that.

I kinda figured that the gravity would assist the output from the RES(yellow) to the RADs. I figured they would have to work harder to suck from the top of the glass, and generally speaking airnt the outputs usually on the bottom of the RES's and the return to to the top?
