Best advice I can give you is
Find the thread that is a "club" for your model case, look at some setups there and see what people did.

Next find a pump that will support all your components, find either a high fin count or low fin count rad depending on what type of fans you want to use and then reanalyze everything so you don't make hundred dollar mistakes like i did biggrin.gif

There wasn't any "Club" threads. There was only a 630 launch thread. Thanks any way

Good choice on the Phantom thumb.gif They are fun to mod but can be a pain because its all steel and eats through dremel discs like butter.

What order do you plan on putting your loop in?

If you're set on using dye thats fine, but it requires more maintenance and can stain blocks so keep that in mind. I always prefer to go with a nice color tubing and then just distilled water + kill coil.

One thing i learned the hard way with my XSPC black chrome fittings is that if you use metal pliers on them it will quickly scrape the "chrome" (duh mad.gif) so put something like a rubber band between your fittings and pliers if you cant hand tighten enough.

The best tip i can give to people when doing their first WC build is get your hands on an auxiliary power supply for leak testing. Any old psu you can find will do as all you'll need to power is 12v for the pump. This way you can leave everything in the rig unplugged and keep the aux psu above the rig to avoid any kind of electrical accident.

Ok cool, iv'e heard of that kind of testing when u first put it together. Shouldn't you only power the pump and the rad for 24 hours strait to test for leaks?
post #6 of 9
You only really need to power the pump. The pump generates a little heat, but its all dissipated by just running through the loop even without fans.

Ok thanks, but is the rest of my setup fine? How would i go aboout the loop setup?
post #8 of 9
Why'd you decide on a dual 40mm rad if you dont mind me asking? You can easily fit a 120.2 in the bottom of the phantom if you take out the HDD cage and if you have the new rev i think they added support up top for a 120.3 rad.

Ok sure i'll do that...My biggest concern though is how to setup the loop and what block to choose for my GPU. If someone could help me out with that it would be great!
