Watercooling noob, got some questions with parts in mind - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Thread Starter 
So I could get something like this - http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13129/ex-res-276/Phobya_Balancer_250_Reservoir_-_Silver_Nickel_45218.html#blank

Do i need to have the res directly connected to the pump? If I understand correctly you just don't want it to run dry.. so I could use some tubing from the bottom of the res to go directly to the pump which would be below the reservoir? I just have a hard time visualizing in my head how this all works for the reservoir to the pump..and most guides only reference using the bay reservoir/pump combos.

does the amount of fluid the reservoir holds really matter? Llike I realize the bigger ones sometimes look better in big cases but would i really need something as big as 250mm?

Size doesn't matter. I just posted this in another thread with someone doing the same thing...

LL

Now, had I thought about it, I would have got the male-male piece that Reapr posted to connect them instead of compression/tube/compression.

I see, so I can either use a compression fitting on one end of my tube, then another going to the pump or just get the male to male fitting.

And the res seems to have those clear brackets.. do those just velcro up to the case? I really appreciate all the help!

In some cases, you will have to drill holes for the reservoir to be put on the case. The guys at Caselabs (if you get the SM8) should be able to install a reservoir mount for ya. Velcro also works, but can be a bit tricky.

very cool, thanks for the information.

bout how many feet of tubing should i go with for the order?
post #17 of 25
I usually stick to the norm and just buy 10ft packs due to the fact that I'm always changing things around in my case. 4-5ft should be enough though.

AFK for an hour while I watch another episode of Mad Men. biggrin.gifthumb.gif

would both radiators realistically need to be cooled with push pull? most likely getting rx360 and rx 240 or possibly a monsta rad
post #19 of 25
Unfortunately, I don't know much of the benefits using push/pull over just push or pull. I stick to using push in my rig, (I think it's in push mode...lol) and everything seems fine in my end.

For your current rig I'd recommend 2 360mm rads, and add a 240mm rad if you get a second card.


On a side note, if I'm not mistaken the Mayhems Pastel Concentrate already has biocides, anti-corrosives, and anti scaling agents already in it.


It's going to be hard to get a quiet and efficient loop if you're going to go for two GTX Titans, as quiet liquid cooling is accomplished by more radspace, and you're already looking at a triple rad setup for the bare essentials.

On a side note, what on earth do you need FOUR GPUs for? (Two GTX Titans is essentially four graphics cards.

the 690 that has 2 gpu's on one pcb. Titan has 1
