waterloop design

post #1 of 6

Hey ocn
Doing my first custom loop soon and starting to plan how it's going to go inside my case. Was looking for some feedback as to whether I have a good loop planned out or not basically.
components:
Raystorm cpu block
2x ek titan blocks
Bitspower 250 black res
d5 pump
2x 360mm rads
1x120mm rad
7x gentle typhoons
primochill ltd black tubing
all bitspower compression fittings

here's what I was thinkings for the loop, case is a 900D. Don't have the case yet so input from someone who does as to what will work and what won't would be great

Looks good, just make sure you get some angled adapters for the compression fittings.

Yeah I have 4 45 angle adaptors coming. Should I rotate the 120mm rad so the fittings are on top as well? Just for getting out bubbles easier
also, what temps will I be looking at? 2 overclocked 780's and a 4670 at 4.5ish ghz

edit: also what configuration should I have the fans in? Was thinking front rad have 3 as intake and the top as exhaust and back as exhaust as well.

Sorry for the double post: have another question i'd really like some help with, simply put, will my pump be able to handle my loop if i added another 480mm rad?
That would make my loop:
2x360mm
1x120mm
1x480mm
2x780blocks
1xcpu block
1xres
and then tubing etc... I know it's overkill and not needed but I want it more for asthetics than anything, so i can have it occupy the bottom of the 900d with the side "door" open

Pump is a koolance pmp-450

Dude, I would just buy two 480 radiators (one- top, one-bottom) and be done with it. Do you really want tubing flying around everywhere? I understand wanting the rig to look nice aesthetically, but usually less tubing makes it look better, not more. wink.gif

To answer your question regarding needing more pump power: Don't quote me on this, but if you do plan on going radiator crazy, I would recommend a 2nd pump. Theirs going to be a lot of coolant that will need to be pushed around.

Examples of Setup:
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 95
or
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 95

Yeah I was considering that but I already have 1 360 and the 120 and I can get a 2nd 360 for practically nothing so just trying to save a bit of cash as the build has gotten out of hand a bit and I haven't even started with mods and painting yet. Think I'll leave it as is and if later I add more gpus I'll think about a 480. What would be optimal fan set up for me? Thinking intake front and side down the bottom and then exhaust top and back? but that means my 360 rad top mounted and 120 rad on the back will be exhausting. I've heard having them that way won't effect temps that much, especially considering I'll have so many rads
