Can someone please help me with my loop?!?!

- Fitting Size 3/8" OD
Radiator# 2Black Ice® GT Stealth 240 Highest Performance Radiator - Onyx Black
- Fitting Size 3/8" OD
Resevoir: EK-RES X3 250 Reservoir
Pump: Swiftech MCP35X2 Pump - White
Tubing: PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing - 1/2in. ID X 3/4in. OD - Crystal Clear
coolant: Ice Dragon Cooling Nanofluid Coolant - 32 oz.
Fittings:

EK G1/4 plug with O-ring x4

Is there a more effective way to loop this or what? from my understanding the water is circulating so fast that the order doesn't really matter but I mean... what do you guys think? I've never built something like this before and I mean I do alot of reading and things before I go into a project but just would like some input before I do spend the money.

Welcome to OCN Krebacca thumb.gif

Firsly I tell this to all people watercooling in a cosmos, there is only 44mm or room above the motherboard and extra space for fans above the case so you won't be able to do push pull on the the top rad, only pull with a rad less than 40mm thickness. It's bad design on coolermaster's part IMO. If you want to use that top rad setup be prepared for some modding.

Anyway what you have seems to be a good selection, you might be cutting it close with only those two rads, may I suggest a second 240 to go down the bottom behind the one already there
I see you have some different sized fittings on some of your part's make sure they are all 1/2" ID and 3/4"OD to match the tubing or just 1/2" if they are barbs.

Since your going EK all over I might suggest the EK supremacy CPU block it outperforms the aquacomputer one in every aspect.

Order of your loop doesn't really matter as long as the pump is right after the reservoir, I like to put my rads between chips but that's just me, from doing that the difference in temps is less than 1deg so don't worry.

THANKS !!! ^>^
Only reason I went with the Aqua over EK is cause it was so much sexier.. lol

Yes, I have the cosmos two case infront of me.. I read about that with the push and pull configuration and am prepared to mod if needed hehe.. The rad I am using is actually quite thin so i'm not sure how much clearance ill have... It's only 29.60 mm. .Was the thinnest I could fine with such a high uhmm fin density!

Seeing that the order doesn't matter.... I'll leave it like it is, will look sexiest like it is xD

What do you mean cutting it close with two rads? O_O Two rads is not enough O_O... Snaps lol Would 2 360's be good enough? I mean I can put 3 360's in the cosmos.. "moded lightly"

Sooo.... ermmm My fittings are messed up? OMG! It's like impossible to figure out lol
Oh, ok I see what your talking about.. Everythings all good!!! It says Inch:
- ID 1/2"; OD 3/4"

Yeah your tubing and fitting isn't matching, make sure they're all the same as whatever tubing you plan to use (in your case 1/2 ID 3/4 OD, the G1/4 number you're seeing is referring to the threads on the side you screw in so disregard it). As for your radiator space you have a 3930k or something I'm assuming, which is 130W plus maybe 30-40% ish for oc headroom, and two titans (295W with voltage unlock). That's almost 800 watts. Some people say 120mm per component in loop plus an extra 120mm which for you would be 5.120mm worth of rad space. I like to say around 100-120W heat dissippated with decent fans per 120mm of rad space, which would be closer to at least 2 360mm rads for that setup personally.

Oh wow, I did not know that. Thank you very much Phantom!! Yea you are correct.. .I'm running
Case: Obvi (CM Cosmos 2)
Motherboard: Rampage IV Extreme
CPU: Intel I7 3970X
RAM: 64GB Cosair Dominator Platinum 2400mhz
GPU: GTX Titan SLI

So I guess I'll put the 360 rad uptop, The 240 Rad on bottom, then pop a 140 Rad on the back where I have that Fan currently highlighted in orange.. .Excuse me...
That'll allow me to at least cool off a little heat between my GPU/ Bottom MB block and my CPU.. biggrin.gif
***color key***
Orange=Fan
Blue= Radiator
Dark blue= Pump
Yellow= reservoir
Green= GPU
Purple=Blocks
Red=Tubing

Fair enough wtht going for the sexier CPU block, I'm sure a lot of us just watercool for looks too.

BTW with such a high fin density for your top rad you're going to have to run the fans pretty fast to get good temps the only problem is that this can be noisy.

You can put a 140mm rad on the back as you said but this is what is was suggesting as it looks a lot neater in my opinion

Yea, I'll be popping in some cosair High performance fans.. maybe a different fan, IDK yet.
BUT I see what you mean by that and I THINK your right... For my Cosair Dominator platinum ram to really pop. It'll look much better cosmetically to have no tubes flying across my ram slots...
So I will dual 240 rad the bottom!!


Btw! That guy does some CRAZY mods with his Cosmos 2 case Whew lol

I might disagree with you there. I have an AC kryos HF and I love it. It is a defiante improvement over the XT.

It is more restrictive than the EK supremacy but pretty much performs on par with it. There is a really good review over at SkinneeLabs. They seem to be about equal with their own pros and cons.
http://skinneelabs.com/ac-kryos-hf/

In a dual pump/rad setup it performs really well. At @1.375 on my 3930k my temps would max out around 50C with high LLC and everything bumped up for a stable 4.8ghz.

PS. It is very sexy. wink.gif

Also, I didn't get the reviewers issues with the mount system. I found it to be quite easy to use. Maybe they have changed it since the review is almost 2 years old.

Makes sense about the block, I focused a lot on flow rate when I was doing my research for one as I'm going with a pretty big loop

I figured anything over 1gpm would be good. I used the charts on martins liquid labs to figure everything out before I bought my parts. With 2 aquastream xt's I'm getting 1.1gpm on the default settings. That's with the Cuplex Kryos HF, full ek water blocks for the mb, flow sensor, 9' of 3/4" tubing, flow sensor and 2x Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper Triple 120mm Radiators. (Overkill, I know. =)

The XT's don't have the greatest flow rates but they have good head pressure and I wanted something ultra quiet. I have been pretty happy with the setup so far.



The op's dual head swiftech should provide much better flow rates than me with the smaller loop. thumb.gif
