Would this work?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am planning of getting rid of my h100i in the near future and setup a custom loop with GPU cooling in my case

Corsair C70 Vengeance

Never done this before and I did make a little plan on paint, if anyone could tell me if this is doable and if its not please tell me what I could do to make it work.



The Reservoir + pump combo atm is just a random guess I don't even know if it has enough pumping power to keep it running

This setup would work fine. Temps will be ok.

Might want to reverse some fans for positive case pressure and less dust. I would flip rear exhaust fan around and add silverstone dust cover on outside. But setup looks good =D

Might add another intake infront of the 120 rad to push the incoming air towards the PSU+GPU to cool the pcb and motherboard sinks

Hmmmm...

There's no point in cooling the water before you send it into a component because the loop (after operating for a sufficient amount of time) will reach thermal equilibrium and it wont really matter - 120mm radiators don't have much heat dissipation anyway.

I would go Pump/Res --> 240 --> CPU --> GPU --> 120 --> Pump/Res but that's still quite odd in the scheme of things. Still wouldn't bother me as much as having criss-crossing tubing like how you originally planned. Would a 120mm radiator fit at the back? I think that would be neat that way your GPU would be the lowest water point in your build.

To answer your original question, that loop's completely doable, so if you did go through with that config everything would work fine smile.gif

You are refering at the current back outlet spot for the 120? Fitting it at the back will work no problem with push pull

Did do some other config aswell. Makes it look a bit more tidy imho and does cool water that has been exposed to heat everytime.

CPU intake has been drawn on the wrong side so it would look kinda neat if you ask me smile.gif
