Silly water cooling water concerns - Page 2

post #11 of 12
shinobi XL biggrin.gif its quite big
if you're handy with a screwdriver or a diy then disassemble everything smile.gif

whatever gear i get i dismantle first thing lol
the pressure difference wont be as much of an issue given that pressure is lost, however im more concerned about stagnant water as the x20 is weaker than the mcp, you will have water trapped with nowhere to go and itll heat up

theres a reason why people run two SAME pumps in a series smile.gif

hope i helped smile.gif

I'm still debating whether Swiftech MCP355 or MCP35x - help me!

With no real indication or critical usage (you don't make a living with this PC right ?), and just 1 GFX card, Id use a D5

For reservoir, is bigger better? Will having more than 1L of water in the loop allow the water to stay cooler or will all the water just get hotter and more water make it harder to cool off?

Bigger reservoir gives ya thermal mass .....1) the larger the surface area of ya reservoir, the more heat it will radiate 2) the arger mass will absorb some temperature spiking as load varies.

This will be a project for a few weeks, I'm going to do some research as I don't want to spend too much and I already have a decent system. If I had to change to much and I cant use it later I'd be bummed, eventually I want to purchase a large roomy case, but those are expensive! smile.gif

What's expensive ? The $250 Primo brought down the price of the $359 800D....the Enthoo is now $209 on newegg .... the New Phanteks Luxe us $139 and the pro is $89 .... I wouldn't bother w/ the latter. Corsair 750D works at about $160 but I think the Phanteks cases now squeezing it from both ends. NZXT has some nice choices
