Help adding a resevoir to closed loop?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN, i bought a cheapo POS eco ii coolit liquid cooler for 20 bucks on tiger direct to see if i want to start doing liquid cooling.

But i was wondering how i would go about adding this guy to the loop if possible.

I know I need new coolant, tubing, and anti--corrosion blocker solution, but as far as attatching the resevoir, do i just simply put on new tubing and run one tube from radiator > res > cpu water block ... then run the other tubes from cpu > radiator?

I am new to this and pretty confused... ANy help is appreciated ^-^

So long as your reservoir is higher than your pump, and leads into your pump, you should be fine.

I'm fairly certain most closed loop kits come with tubing that has been permanently mounted to the radiator, waterblock, etc.

This means you'd need to cut the tubes, and use some adapters to hook in some compression fittings, so you could use some desired tubing.

The order of your cooling loop really doesn't matter... At all..... As long as your pump is consonantly being fed water, which usually means having it directly below your reservoir, it wont make a difference in temps or flowrate.
