Loop order on my Mega 900D build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi
Ive just got all my gear from various places now,just the fittings to exchange,the red monsoon ones were poor quality(paint missing/too tight over the primochill advanced onyx /bloodshed red tubing/the treads were all over the place).
I was looking at the primochill ghost (13-19mm) or the ek csq black or silver too with the above tubing....any advice ??.

My rig is as follows...

Corsair 900D
27'' LG EA83 1440x 2560 led
Asus Maximus VI Formula Z87
32gb Kingston Hyper Beast DDR3 2400mhz
Intel I7 4770K cpu
Asus Phoebus sound card
2 X Samsung 512gb pro ssd's
2 X Hitachi Deskstar 4TB hard drives
Aquaero pro fan controller
Corsair k95 keyboard
R.A.T 9 wireless mouse (black)
2 X Evga GTX 780 Hydro Copper G/cards
Corsair SP2500 speakers
Xeox game pad
Corsair AX1200i psu with full red braided cable set
3 x Corsair AF120 quiet edition
1 x Corsair AF140 quiet edition

Watercooling

EK Supremacy full nickle cpu block
1 x Alphacool 480 rad
1x Alphacool 360 rad
14 x Corsair SP120 quiet edition fans (push pull)
250mm Phobya black nickle res
Primochill Advanced (13-19mm) tubing ....Bloodshed Red or Black Onyx (i bought them both.i couldnt make my mind up )
2x 1000ml Ek clear coolant
2 x Phobya led strips
6 x phobya single leds
D5 655 vario pump
Ek CSQ D5 pump top (braided) i wanted the bitspower mod kit and top,black sparkle top,nobody in the uk sells them
2 x monsoon temp sensors(braided)

Fittings were red monsoon,bought from scan computers,but are going back on monday for refund (£140 in total).
These were really bad quality ,paint comes of easily,some were missing paint on the insides,half of the threads were all over the place.i stopped after testing them on my hydro coppers.
Its a shame because the 45 and 90 degree fittings were great quality,and had no problem screwing into the hydros and other blocks.It was as if the angle rotary and the red fittings were made by two diff companys,there that bad.
I struggled to get the locking part along the primoflex advanced tubing (even with ky jelly),this was recommended on other forums,it didnt make a diff,the tool is naf,it twists the tube ,after a lot of brute force it still looked like it wasnt tight enough.
I had a spare phobya fitting liying around and tried that,it was a breeze to go on.

I was looking at these fittings for either tubing or both

Primochill Ghost Adonized Red

http://www.primochill.com/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=358

Ek CSQ nickle/black nickle/black along with there 45 & 90 degree angles.

http://www.ekwb.com/shop/accessories/fittings/compression-fittings/for-13-19mm-1-2-3-4-tubing.html

I could possibly use the 45s and 90s with the primochill fittings,what do you think!!

Once i get the fittings, i will post some pice with everything together,and then some build pics

I know its been done to death but its a red/black rog theme.

So to cap this off,
I would like some advice in what order my loop should go to maximize heat removal
i.e res/pump etc.

Looking forward to reading some great advice

The only order that really matters is Res -> Pump. The Res should be higher than the pump. Everything else should be ordered for the best asethics.

Im going to order my 900d soon and then spend a while looking at it and planning the water cooling build for it. Looking forward to seeing your build log. thumb.gif

Ditto regarding loop order, and kudos to dihartnell for the link to the original research post (which I was recently discussing with someone else and couldn't recall where it came from) thumb.gif

I used Bitspower blood red fittings for my ROG build. They look great but required an e-mail order directly from Bitspower HQ in Taiwan since noone stocks them except for a very small selection. The red plating or whatever it is was kind of fragile though--a few of the fittings had suffered some impact damage during shipping which dented them and chipped off large areas of color, but BP replaced them very quickly for free thumb.gif My impression is that all color-coated fittings have the same fragility though, and you were probably just unlucky with the damaged monsoons.
