Moar Cooling!!!!!!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Holla fellow OCN'ers, recently upgraded my loop to include a couple of universal gpu blocks but not happy with the layout. I have come up with a new routing system since I haven't put gpu under water before any help, advice or cuffs across the ear would be greatly appreciated.

Loop consists of :

Koolance CPU 370 Block

Black Ice GT Stealth Xflow 360 Rad

Black Ice GT Stealth 240 Rad

Koolance PMP 450-S Pump

EK-Res X3 150 Reservoir

XSPC Raystorm Universal GPU Blocks

I doodled up my new tubing routing:



The blue means retaining, red means throwing and the white means the new routing, my problem lies in the fact that the inlet and outlet ports on the raystorms are directional, I have seen pics on the internet of people using the outlet as an inlet, would that cause a problem with xfired cards?. And would restriction come into play?

Cheers All

This should be the right spacing:
http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_971_1018_1039&products_id=32613
They have both the black and the white. I believe they only have 1.6 inch and 2.4 inch spacing though. You can then run parallel and have both your inlet and outlet on the top. I think it would look much cleaner.

Cheers Mate the loop de loop of spaghetti tubing was starting to drive me nuts thumb.gif

edit I'd have to go the triple Xfire bridge as the spacing between the two x16 lanes is a lot wider than any other board I've owned

*Sigh* it looks like I will not be able to use the swiftech bridge as the blocks must be run in series I found out after emailing XSPC mad.gif and from the look of the spec drawings of the bridge, I have come up with a couple of sketches for alternate layouts, advice or shoutdowns again most welcome.





This is the shortest I could get the tubing without uber kinks, but it will still hit the side panel.

So I made these sketches with my paint skillz thumb.gif


Alternate Loop 01


Alternate Loop 02

I'm leaning more towards Loop 01 for the fact of less tubing crossover (neater)
