WC loop cart final opinions?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello, so the deal is I'm ordering some WC gear and as good practice I would like some second opinions on my cart as despite months of research there may have been something I have missed.

Dual Loop System

Loop 1
Mayhems X1 Clear Coolant
Mayhems Red Dye
Primoflex Advanced LRT 3/8"ID 5/8"OD
12x Bitspower Silver Compression Fittings 3/8"ID 5/8"OD G1/4"
Performance PCs UBER665 Modded D5 MCP655 + Silver Bitspower Kit and top
EK Supremacy Acetal+Nickel
EK Crosshair V Formula-Z Nickel+ Acetal Chipset Block
XSPC RX360 RAD
EK RES X3 250mm Tube Reservoir
3x Corsair SP120 Quiet Ed. pack of 2
Total $770 approx
Order: RES>PUMP>360RAD>CHIPSET>CPU>RES

Future upgrade: Loop 2 (will be purchased at a later date) (except rad)
Mayhems X1 Clear Coolant
Mayhems Red Dye
Primoflex Advanced LRT 3/8"ID 5/8"OD
Performance PCs UBER665 Modded D5 MCP655 + Silver Bitspower Kit and top
10x Bitspower Silver Compression Fittings 3/8"ID 5/8"OD G1/4"
EK RES X3 250mm Tube Reservoir
2x EK 7970 Acetal+nickel GPU Block
XSPC RX480
4x Corsair SP120 Quiet Ed. pack of 2
total approx $880
Order: RES>PUMP>480RAD>GPU1>GPU2>RES
This is not including all the little gadgets to make a drain port and a few angle fittings

This is all going in a 900D on a crosshair 5 formula-z motherboard and a FX-8320 CPU
I also have an XSPC 240 rad that may be added either loop if I determine that the temps are too high.

Any thoughts would be great,

Haha well if no one is saying anything I guess it's pretty good, rolleyes.gif

I have had a few doubts about the XSPC RX360 rad, It's really close between that and the Hardwarelabs SR1

For the rad I guess it will be good idea to measure the clearance from memory and other MB components like EPS supply but i assume you already did your research on that tongue.gif .. I Personally like EK Fittings as they look good and are cheap aswell plus you can get them in nickel ..so no risk of galvanization..shouldn't happen on bitspower silver fittings either but still a different metal IMO. would advise you getting a QDC for using as a drain..and 45 degrees may help on the cpu block as these fittings seem to be thick..

Thanks gill22 Yes I have considered the drain, I'm using a t-line with a valve as the build is very looks centred. I also did not include angle fittings (I'm using rotaries). that QDC is a good Idea though If I could incorporate it nicely as it's a lot cheaper too.

I looked around and bitspowers range was largest, also I have seen almost everyone using and talking about them so I assumed they must be good. I have measured and researched the rad too thanks, however I just discovered the HWlabs SR-1 and it's very similar... too similar to decide
