Beginner's Guide For Water-Cooling 2013! - Page 26

post #251 of 322
I'm about to begin thinking about water-cooling my system and found this forum to be indispensable. This is EXACTLY what I was looking for.

I am a 100% total noob concerning water-cooling. I am considering having my GPU (R9 290x) and CPU (i3770k, quite possibly upgrade to i4930k in the very near future) in the loop. I read through every single response on this thread and gained a lot of knowledge, so thank you all.

One qualm though is that there are too many people throwing around too many acronyms that people like me have no idea what you are talking about.

Terms such as:
D5 insert on res (What is a D5?)
pwm
ID tubing
PITA
ps/converter

It took me a couple of seconds to figure out what a "res" was (reservoir) and also a "rad" (radiator) but a lot of other people might have a harder time than I did figuring certain things out. This is a "Beginners' Guide" :-)

A big thank you to REPUBLICOFGAMER, this guide is awesome! This is an excellent starting point for a lot of people such as myself. Once I start planning my loop, you can bet that I'll be on here asking questions :-) but I think that with all the info presented, the process shouldn't prove too difficult.

Another thing to consider would be a dictionary where people who "don't know" can easily look to see what something is or does. Biocide sounds like the title of a video game LOL. Yes, there is always Google, but THIS thread here could be the "go-to" guide for a hell of a lot of people :-)

D5: Type of pump, newer of which is the DDC
PWM: refers to fans. They can be controlled by your motherboards cpu fan header.
ID tubing: All tubing has 2 measurements, ID and OD; stand for Inner diameter and outer diameter
PITA: Pain in the ass
converter: I'd be guessing cold cathodes; they need power converters to be run.

Puunh,

Thanks LOL...had no idea that's what PITA stood for.

I suppose that the longer one hangs around here, the easier those acronyms become. I still see people on other sites make up their own and nobody has any idea what they're talking about...

DDC is a family of pumps.

The best of which is the MCP355/MCP35X.

They have a small form factor, dump heat into the air, strong head pressure, bit louder than the D5 family of pumps.

I prefer D5s.

Hey ROG, it's me again. I have some questions for you.

1. My planned setup: Jack Daniels res > D5 with EK X-TOP > MSI 780Ti with EK waterblock > 120mm Alphacool rad (Monsta or UT60) > Core i7 4770K > 360mm Alphacool Monsta rad > repeat
This will cool well enough to overclock both my gpu and cpu right?
2. When using at home I want extra cooling, so I want to connect a Airplex Evo 1800 radiator connected via quick disconnects. Do I need an extra pump for such a large radiator? And when I disconnect it, can i just keep the liquid in there, because obviously that rad takes alot of fluid.

Thanks for the guide RoG thumb.gif

Who makes and what are the best pumps and rads or are they all in the same playing field?

I like XSPC stuff but is it better to mix and match for performance?

Hows the heat dump effect?, I run 780 ti's and OC'ed they turn into a space a heater, I imagined oc'ed on water would be even worse

I don't have it made yet, but I will do it soon. I'll have the pics in my buildlog by then.

Hey guys, I'm interested in making a water cooling loop similar to this one that Syan has in his sig http://www.overclock.net/lists/display/view/id/5174076. How does one go about making such a neat and cohesive loop setup? I remember when I tried setting up a loop previously it was messy with tubing sort of hanging down in multiple spots. Those angled looking connectors are those 90 degree elbow connectors he's using? Also what is that thing in between the pump/res and the tubing going down to the radiator.

I have a 900d like this setup is in and would like to make a loop for 2 gpus and a cpu, but I don't want to top mount any radiators (I want them all on the bottom). Will this give me a good setup with a 480 and a 360 radiator on the bottom? Thanks for any help.
