Help with first custom loop - Page 2

Just a note, tube sizing has very little to no actual affect on flow or temps.

And just a heads up, Monsta rads are actually 80mm thick. So with fans on one side, just over 100mm thick.


As long as you do not exceed your MB amp rating devil.gif

Bitspower makes a great looking pump top for the 655, which comes in several finishes/colors.

I don't like fan controllers, myself, but Lamptron is pretty much the brand. Lots of different options there. Do you need PWM support?

I have Primochill 3/8" by 5/8" (I like that the walls are thicker) and Swiftech black fittings (I do not care for the chome, '59 Cadillac-looking stuff).
Now everywhere I look I see Monsoon or Bitspower fittings recommended. They sell those Monsoon fittings boxes at my local store. Should I return the Swiftech?

No, no; Swiftech makes perfectly fine compression fittings. If you prefer the look of Monsoons or Bitspower, there is nothing stopping you, but you're fine with Swiftech fittings.

The 3/8"-5/8" tubing is great for tight bends etc.

I personally find it easier to work with thumb.gif

Maybe this will help you some. And I ordered 20 M3-8mm screws from Mr. Metric out in San Jose and they worked perfect with the extra nylon washers that EK provides for his M3-4mm screws. Precision X works just fine for checking the temps. Have not seen them go over 42c yet under full load for extnded time.
