Just a simple question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Im working on a new pc seeing that im starting school and doing some computer animation on the side, i need the cpu power and i need reliability but i also want looks.
but this is my first time i water cool, i get the concept and im looking at upgrades in the future so i don't mind overkill. I have a few questions and maybe you guys can help.

the current Specs are ( waiting to order want to buy it all at once )

ASUS Maximus V FORMULA
Intel Xeon E3-1240 V2
16 Gb Corsair Vengance
Asus GTX 660ti
SSD's and HDs for os and storage

Now here comes the watercooling, my whole pc revolves around red and black and some white for contrast.

So for watercooling im gonna order the following

EK Supremacy for Cpu Block
EK Coolstream 360 XT Rad
Monsoon Series Two Premium Reservoir
Swiftech MCP655-B Pump
Monsoon Free Center Compression Fitting X6
Monsoon 45° Rotary Angle Adapter Black w/ Red Accent Disk
EK EKoolant Premium Liquid Cooling Premix Coolant - 1L
PrimoChill PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Tubing 3/8"ID x 5/8" OD
3 Corsair Air Series SP120 For the Rad

Now comes my question #1, i want to keep track of the temp going in and coming out of the rad, so i want to get
2 Alphacool 180° T Block
2 Bitspower Dual " Male / Male Fitting
2 Monsoon Premium Temperature Sensor Fitting
And Place this on the in and out of the Rad

In The whole setup i will have a Lamptron FC5-v2 to control the fans and read temps, will the monsoon temp sensors work with the lamptron???

And A Second Question, the setup i will do is Res is where i start so

Res > Pump > Cpu > Vram Block > Rad > Res Is this setup anygood???

Also i put alot of the things ima get so i can get some feed back as to my choices.

Thanks for taking time to answer my questions and or any feed back.

Your loop order is fine. The order doesn't matter, actually. Just do whatever gets you the shortest tube runs and looks the best. I know there is a temptation to think that if I put this component in front of that component, that it's going to make a difference in temps, but it doesn't. It equals out almost instantaneously, because it's a loop. This has been demonstrated over and over.

Cattle Corn thanks i just wanted to make sure

PR-imagery why the xeon? simple im going to do alot of Cad work and 3D rendering and need CPU power, also i need something i can keep on 24/7 as this will be a Private file server, and i want something meant to be reliable, a Xeon fills each one of the things i look for. Plus some gaming on the side. (:
