For a slight change of pace, I have decided to go with a 4th radiator. I ordered another AX480 (which will fit in the front flex bays) and already have some pretty awesome ideas on how to do the fans and the fill/drain lines. I decided on the radiator over the extra reservoir when I was assembling the videocards. The entire backplate is a passive heat exchanger due to the TITAN cards having the 12 additional chips on the back side making each card 6GB. I will want airflow through the main chamber. Also, an extra radiator will help in making the system more quiet.

Now I am deciding if I want to stay with 3 pumps in series, or move to 4 pumps, 2 in series with each other and then the dual series lines ran in parallel to each other. This would give me double head and double flow rate, but I don't think its needed.

Also, I edited the planned waterloop layout picture, so here it is:

This is one of the best build logs I have ever seen - great attention to detail from you, I love all the shots and lots of mini-guides on how to do various things.

 

Will you be sewing your cables?

I haven't decided on how I plan to do that. I know sewing the 8-pins and the 24-pins look MUCH better when done, so most likely I will look at some way to achieve this, as I really don't like the looks of cables that aren't. I also have plans to cut specific lengths of wire to make each cable run exactly what it needs to be. I have the means of doing it, so I don't really see any point not to.

However, I can say, PSU cable cutting, sewing and sleeving will be the last thing done on this build. There is going to be a bit of through and work put into cable management to make it as visually appealing as possible wink.gif

Great to hear :) I've seen other build logs which look amazing, but the cables just aren't straight - kills my OCD, it does.

 

You should rename this build log "No Salary Cap or Time Limit" - the amount of work you're putting in is tremendous, it's not just you throwing money at it.

 

As far as the rads go - would it not be better to split the loop? I've never watercooled so don't know the difference, but I imagine the water would be significantly warmer by the time it reaches Titan #4.

It takes a tremendous amount of energy to move the water temperature even 1 degree. The water temps will equalize throughout the loop, and the only issue he needs to worry about is enough sufficient flow through the loop, once he has this he will be fine.

Although, now that we're on the subject have you thought of adding the GPU's in parallel? This should reduce the restriction added by the blocks, and equalize the GPU core temperatures to within a few degrees of each other.

GPU's in parallel would reduce pressure on the pumps, wouldn't it? If water temps aren't a problem that's the main benefit I can see of using two loops instead of one.

I love how the waterblocks came out...amazing attention to details as others have mentioned.

Keep up the great work man! I smell a winner in this one...if you ever go for MOTM. thumb.gif

The fluid is moving too fast to get that big of a temperature difference between card 1 and card 4 in such a small distance. As far as split loops, I started this build basically throwing split/dual loops out the window due to the headache it provided in my last build.

With that said, I am finding myself now revisiting the idea purely for aesthetics, not performance. I haven't really posted anything about the dual loop ideas I have thought about because they haven't made their way to paper yet. This also goes for the way the lines will actually run inside the case. I have the general idea of how the loop will go theoretically, but as far as exactly where each acrylic line will go and how I will plan to bend everything is also still purely in my head for now wink.gif

I debated about GPU's in parallel, but to honest its not completely needed. My previous build has 4 videocards in series with 1 480 rad and 2 series d5 pumps. The core temps are all within 1 degree C of each other at load and the dual d5's are running at 50% with 24V in.

The thing I really need to hammer down is the pump configuration hashed out...

Putting the videocards in parallel will lower the overall pressure the pumps have to overcome. However, it will also slow the fluid down when it traverses over the videocard blocks. You can't look at just the pumps or just the videocards, but rather the entire system and what flow rates you want to try and achieve.

The main benefit I see from dual lines is visual only. My previous build was so "overbuilt" for what a PC does at max load it was dumb. But that's what drove me to building this so I guess it works out biggrin.gif

Thanks! Do people actually submit their stuff for MOTM or does the staff here pick build logs they like?

You can either nominate yourself of be nominated by someone who appreciates your work. Once you have been nominated el gappo sends you a pm asking you to fill a questionnaire regarding g the build, select your 4 favorite photos showcasing the build and a ~100 word blurb on your build explaining to people who haven't yet seen your log what it's about etc etc. I was in September MOTM, that's why I know it.
