loop planning

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
ok so the stuff i ordered most of it just arrived waiting for the 680 classified block, backplate, bitspower 400 tank, MCP35x will arrive in a few days
now i want to plan my loop

i have 4 rams to cool by an ek block and also an ek block for the motherboard an xspc waterblock for the cpu and classified block for the GTX 680 currently i have therx360 rad running is it enough to cool all of these for the time being? i will be using 6 GT's in push/pull if i managed to fit the rad on top of the case outside because its impossible to fit it inside with push/pull fans. I am going to order ,Another GTX 680 classified,2-3 of Alphacool NeXXos UT60 360/420 and add them to the loop with push pull GT 1850 rpms. But thats for the future for the time being is this loop going to work ? or should wait and order more rads.


P.S anyone could suggest some good gaming monitors around 350$ ?

I think in push pull on the 360 you should be okay for time being. It's not nearly going to be as efficient as you want but in my opinion I don't see your hardware frying or anywhere near that

ASUS VG Series VG278H Black 27"

ASUS VG248QE Black 24"

Some of the best gaming monitors, the 27 sacrifices some contrast ratio and gtg response time for the obvious size difference, try posting in the monitor sub forum for some good suggestions smile.gif I only posted these because for gaming, nothing will give you better fps/non ghosting than these high refresh rate monitors

Wish you the best of luck mate thumb.gif

ok thanks for the suggestions smile.gif

also how should i plan my loop ?

like i will start from the reservoir from the reservoir to pump>CPU>ram>mobo>GPU>rad is that fine ? or should i make any changes ?

and should i get 2 pumps or 1 is enough ? i am afraid if i get 2 pumps and the pressure is too much the pipe's will burst tongue.gif ?

There's a big line from a lot power and overkill smile.gif

Remember every block, radiator, angled fitting reduces pressure from the pump so everything adds up a bit
http://martinsliquidlab.org/pump-planning-guide/ is a goode example to see this

You don't have to worry about your tubes coming off your barbs unless you have too big of tubing that is loose on your barbs, or you have a pump that does 50meters head pressure biggrin.gif

You should be using clamps on your barb to secure the tubing even more than just connecting it. If you use compression fittings you basically tighten the compression fitting till you cant no more, and if it doesn't tighten to much, try to twist it every day or so after the system is running for a while.
What many people do is use 7/16" 5/8" tubing on 1/2" barbs to get a tighter fit

Your loop will be fine as long as you have the reservoir higher than the pump and the reservoir -> to pump.

Whether you put your radiator before the blocks or after is your call smile.gif With multiple radiators it's different. Some prefer a radiator after the pump and then before the res and some prefer in between blocks


Hopefully some other users come and share some information and experiences as well for ya thumb.gif
