Watercooling a TJ07 - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Thread Starter 
OK, taking everything into account, came up with this

DangerDen:
Danger Den DD12V-D5 Pump w/TDX - £67
Danger Den MAZE5 GPU Block - £21

KustomPC:
ThermoChill PA120.3 - £57

SpecialTech:
Alphacool 5.25" Reservoir Black£25.99

Which is £170.98 ($340) before fans, tubing and any fittings or water stuff etc

I want really quiet fans, hence the 120.3 radiator to compensate, i want this to be really quiet.

Also, TJ07 is all looks, so i'm wanting some UV Reactive tubing or additive, can anyone suggest a good way to achieve this?

Go with clear tubing and UV reactive coolant..it looks way better..I just install craptastic UV tubing and I don't like it one bit.

Thats looking good...I'm glad you changed from the Storm, it's a great block but it's more for single block loops and naked cores...You can get different UV additives for just about any color....Fluid XP if you can find it is nice looking and non-conductive for a short time....Kind of expensive though...Or you can just buy UV dye and use it with distilled water....EDIT: You might want to look at fstfrddy's blocks...Stinger WB


What size fittings are on the Alphacool res? You want to go 1/2" on your stuff if you can....I like 7/16x5/8" Masterkleer tubing, you use it with 1/2" fittings, it's a little easier to route around in your case and flows about as well.....I'll leave a couple of links so you can see what I'm talking about.... Danger Den :: Tubing :: Tubing and Clamps :: 7/16" ID (5/8" OD) Masterkleer General Purpose Clear PVC Tubing

Some tweaks,

ThermoChill PA120.3 - £56.99
Alphacool Cape Coolplex Pro 25 - £27.57
Danger Den MAZE5 GPU Block - $42.95
Danger Den DD12V-D5 Pump with Copper TDX - $108.75
10' 7/16" Masterkleer Tubing - $4.90
TDX Brass Top Converstion Kit - $20.99

Total: £175.32 GBP

Still need fittings, need to check that all over properly. And coolant, FluidXP isn't cheap so i'm looking into that.

It looks great except fo the Alphacool Res, it's ends are aluminum...You don't want to mix copper and aluminum it will cause corrosion...Just use a plexi bay res or a T-Line instead....EDIT: I missed that in the other post...

Thanks, changed it back to the slot type.

Another question, is the Thermochill PA120.3 the best choice here? it's twice the price of a BIX 360, so I guess my question is, with a DangerDen D5 Pump which really is of the better value? If the 120.3 only yields a few *C difference then i don't see it as being cost effective

I asked a guy that same question, he had Thermochill rad's...He said you can use lower cfm fans on the Thermochills so there quieter but the BIX was about as good temp wise with high cfm fans...You need to use 100+cfm fans on a BIX...These are good rad's and you can use lower cfm fans on them.Danger Den :: Radiators :: Black Ice Series :: GTS Stealth Radiator :: Stealth GTS 240 Black Ice..

So would you think let say, 3 x 900RPM fans on a PA120.3 wouldn't be much colder than 3 x 900RPM fans on a Stealth GTS 360 Black Ice?

Aside from it being half the price, looking much nicer, and smaller, it also means I can prevent buying from 4 different places.

Sounds pretty good I just don't want to loose out heh

If you have the money your not going to beat a Thermochill period...They have a lot less pressure drop to....I really don't know how many C's difference there will be...Look around for some reviews on them and compare the Temp's....

Yeah I understand it's the best radiator around, its like the Storm vs Apogee debate, Storm is generally better but in most cases isn't worth the extra cash.

Reviews aren't very helpful with watercooling alot of the time because of all the variables like ambient temp, pump power etc

I think i'll just go for the Stealth GTS 360 Black Ice, at half the price I think i'll risk it.

Cheers
