Last Water Cooling Question (as I am building the loo now)

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
When you do the wire bridge thing to get the water in the loop via the pump without the system booting,

(I have got an adapter by the way)

...do you leave all the power plugs as they are on the board and in the devices or do I unplug everything bar the 24v cabling from the PSU?

Might be a stupid question but I'm not sure :/

This guy has everything unplugged, but I have seen some with everything plugged in?
Can I just unplug from the PSU?

Thanks

Azz

Unplug everything but leave the pump plugged in. Then just use the switch on the back on the unit to turn it on and off.

Nice one, smile.gif

Also I have just found out that the rad is too big to have the fans on, sooo would it hurt it to have the air blowing through the rad and into the case? I have a 200mm fan blowing at the cards so no hot air with gather on them, it's the only way this rad will fit.

Trust me to font this at the last minute, should have seen this coming

You can't even fit fans on one side of the rad?

No, the rad is quite thick, and once you add the fans it covering the CPU power socket!!! This case is designed for a slim rad by the looks of it, so I have the rad mounted inside and the fans on top, will build a shroud to cover them fully, at least this way is always cold air coming in,

And I have just finished building the loop!!! though still have wireing and stuff to do,

Cool, you won't get the best performance that way but as long as you have a good exhaust solution, it should be fine. Get some filters though as dust will be a killer with intakes on top!

I'm going to build that into the shroud, though the room is not that dusty, more floating cat hairs (I have a Mainecoon and they are big and fluffy) so I'm more bothered about him jumping on it and breaking the fans,

Just got to wire up the pump and I can get it filled tonight hopefully, test it for 2/3 hours for leaks then finish the build,

Took pics throughout so I'll stick them up once I have it running smile.gif
