My first Watercooling Project, need some advice :)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 


I know im not an artist when i look at all your board just nicely done tongue.gif

i've had many probleme just cause of that Reservoir + pump.. had hard time with no fitting.. finnaly found one lol

for my lil specs :

cpu : i7 2600k overclocked to 4,2Ghz no need for more tongue.gif
motherboard : Asus P8Z68 VE
ram : 8gb
gpu : 2x Asus GTX 670 DCII

Ive never had in mind that i was going to Overclock or Watercool all of this.. but when i tryed the cpu.. i loved how .. we can play and relax without having an air plane right by our side when all those fans goes to 100% -_- lol
ive had one of these Hyper 212 Plus

but for sure i wouldnt have pick up the cheapest motherboard and this mid Tower HAF 922..
its pretty big but..
wow i regret not choosing a reservoir bay..
http://koolance.com/rp-401x2-single-5-25in-reservoir-for-1-2-pmp-400-pumps
with a 2nd 400pmp pump will be waiting me..
i guess there would be better option for a reservoir bay but why not choosing one that can fit your pump.. tongue.gif
if there is some advice would be nice

all this when it will be the time to grab this Haswell 4770k wink.gif

But my real question would be there..

would it worth to upgrade from "HAF 922" to "Crosair Obsidian 800D"

at idle my temp
cpu : 30c
both gpu : 25c

at full load :
cpu and gpu is arround 40-50 max

(its arround 30c when i play on a single monitor, im playing in surround with tripple monitor)

still a hard choice for the price of this 800D

another of my question would be about draining our coolant

ive done a lil job just before the pump, a tubing that im sure doesnt help my loop

but last time it was a pain in the ass to drain all of this.. waterblock per waterblock... an hours later frown.gif lol

it was still not perfectly drained.. so here is a try.. but..

is there a secret to drain all of this coolant ? lol ive been looking arround but ive never found something that work great : \

thanks in advance smile.gif still trying to learn

You could invest in the Koolance Drain Valve, this would help you out in terms of draining your system.

Upgrading to the Corsair 800D is definitely worth it in your case, You can get rid of those current radiators, and just upgrade to a single 360 radiator. Though if you don't mind dishing out an additional $80, I definitely recommend getting the Silverstone TJ07. This case will allow you to use a 480 radiator, a 360 radiator, and a 240 radiator, although a 480 radiator will be just fine in your case. It is also very mod friendly, as everything is attached via thumb screws.*I did a review on this case if you care to check it out.*

It would also be a smart idea to upgrade that pump and reservoir system as well. You seem to want to go with a drivebay pump/res system as an upgrade. I prefer tube reservoirs, but to each his own. Bitspower has a very nice Reservoir/Pump system combo for Drivebays. Go to FrozenCPU.com and search under watercooling, it shouldn't be hard to find.

Hey thx smile.gif

You know when i was talking about drivebay reservoir it was more because of my HAF 922
i dont have ennought space inside to mount it where i want it frown.gif lol

but, when you are talking about upgrading my pump and reservoir.. you mean a bigger reservoir ?

for the pump many people seem to recommand the Swiftech MCP655

its gonna be a new project i guess.. for now im looking at this TJ07 and its realing interesting your review smile.gif
look like a perfect match for the Watercooling System x_x

gonna try this.. its just like 40$ more than the 800D still not so bad,

more space.. more space pls smile.gif its what i hear from my HAF922 every time i look at it frown.gif lol

im curently using 10mm Tubing right now.. would it really change something to grab bigger tubing ?

or if its just for the look ?

tongue.gif

Ill start with a new case, and the next month maybe the new radiator, pump, reservoir

Black Ice GTX Xtreme 480 Radiator - Black
Bitspower Water Tank Z-Multi 150 Inline Reservoir
Swiftech MCP655 Variable Speed 12v Water Pump w/ G1/4

and new tubing and fiting if it worth it

thanks

Hell yeah man! Get the TJ07. You won't regret it. thumb.gif You can join the Silverstone TJ07 Club afterwards. wink.gif Regarding your choice of reservoir, that Bitspower will work, but may look a little small in the TJ07. With the way the TJ07 is, you'll be able to put the pump below the midplate near the power supply, leaving quite a bit of space for your reservoir up top. (My worklog shows this). Your tubing should be fine. I use 1/2 x 3/4. (most commonly used tubing size). Make sure to look up Primochill Advanced LRT tubing when ya go shopping for new parts. And yes, the MCP 655 is definitely the way to go. It's quite pricey for a pump, but definitely get's the job done.

What fans are you using for your radiators?
