Another corsair 350d build recommendation

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
This will be my first water cooling build, so I would appreciate if I could get some recommendations on parts.

Parts acquired

corsair 350d
ax860i
sp120 x 6 quiet
af120 x 1 quiet

Proposed parts

4770k
asus maximus gene
gtx 780
corsair vengence 16gb 2133
samsung 840 256gb

with the option for sli





Some questions

1. Top radiator- I assume this radiator is not suitable for low speed fans due to its high fpi rating, what is more suitable that is less than 35mm thick for clearance?
2. xspc bay pump res - I am concerned maybe there are clearance issues with top radiator and set of fans?
3. Fittings- I am not sure about the amount and type of fitting required, also if 90 deg fittings are needed.
4. For draining the system, would the above 90 deg fitting screw on the top of the xspc bay res for easy draining?

I am living in Japan, so shipping is expensive.

I have the exact same bay res and clearance for the top radiator shouldn't be a problem, just use a 45 degree fitting on the outlet. I haven't checked the inlet yet but I'm hoping I can just use a straight fitting for that one. You can also get an EX240 in the top if you dont use the standard mounts and offset it closer to the window side of the case. I'd recommend getting 45 degree fittings for the cpu block and the top radiator.

RX240 is quite good at low speeds, one of the best at 600-800rpm according to this test http://www.hardwareluxx.de/community/f137/update-14-09-die-goldene-mitte-360er-tripleradiator-vergleichstest-23-radis-832681.html (sorry it's in German but scroll down for the charts).

All looks pretty good to me, just make sure you put a t fitting and valve in the bottom of the loop or some other way to drain it when the time comes.
It will make like much easier.

Thanks for the replies,
So regarding the top radiator, the black ice gt stealth rad will fit no problem?
The xpsc ex240 is better rad for low fan speeds but does not fit as standard.
If i can't use standard mount, then where can I buy suitable parts or what is screw size?

Regarding fittings
Is the following correct
8 x compression fittings.
4 x 45 degree fittings for cpu block and top rad.
Bitspower_G14_Matte_Black_Rotary_45_Degree_G14_Adapter


Regarding draining I was planning on putting a 90 deg fitting on bay res as shown on list at first post.
Is this possible?

Links to t splitter and valve would be helpful.

From what I understand the loop will consist of
bayres - top rad - cpu - gpu - front rad

and the rear case fan will be changed to inlet.

From XSPC, the EX240 and AX240 are high restriction, best over 1200rpm. The RX is better at low fan speeds, but due to the depth and surface area of fins, it's not bad at high speeds either. See link in my previous post for tests showing this.

and the rear case fan will be changed to inlet.

I didn't need to modify my case to get the ex240 to fit up top, just used some of the vent holes that line up with the screw holes of the rad. 90 deg on bay res wont work, unless you cut a hole in the bottom of the drive cage. I ordered 5 45 deg rotaries for mine, 2 for cpu, one for top rad(fitting closest to motherboard tray), one for outlet of bayres and one spare which I will probably use on the gpu block.

My loop order will be bayres->cpu->top rad->gpu->front rad->bayres. I will probably make a hole in the top of the case for a fill port and not worry about any sort of drain fitting.

You will also need more compression fittings, 10 in total.

From the previous comments mentioned above such as radiator and fitting I have revised the list.

The top rad is changed to alphacool st30, from the article mentioned above it is more suitable for this application.
The original list did not include pump. With the above item it looks awkward to change the pump speed.
The 90 deg fitting I mentioned above would only be used when draining the loop, adding and removing when neccessary, is this stupid?

I dont think I want to drill holes in case for fillport but is a good option.
The gpu block and backplate is out of stock.

The drain needs to be in the bottom of the loop, just put a "T" fitting in and attach a valve like this.

I use a t fitting and koolance quick disconnects on mine.

The original thought was to invert the case while draining, but a t fitting at the bottom is the better option.

Is this correct? I dont understand how the quick disconnect works in the below situation?

t fitting,
valve
3 x compression fittings
stop plug
