Redesigning loop - Suggestions?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone! I'm planning on redoing my loop once the ek 780 classy block is released in a few weeks. When it came down to maintenance or additions, I could never get my loop to fully drain. My question to you guys, can my loop be improved? Are my QDC's in the right position?

The picture below is of my old setup, I ditched the old x58 in favor of 4770k and 780 classy. (still waiting on the ek fc)


Really appreciate it!

i would mount the top rad the other way with the fittings at the front.

go, pump>res>rad>cpu>gpu>rad>pump repeat myself.

Hmm, interesting! That would definitely clean it up a bit too. How about placement of the QDC from rad>cpu? Would that work? Or is it not needed?

i wouldnt bother with them at all tbh but that is upto you.

i would consider a y or t near the bottom so you can empty it easier as you said that has caused you issues but i dont understand why you have those quick disconnect where you do now tbh.

only place i have seen them for a reason is around the gpu area so they can be added to or removed as and when really smile.gif

I have a bitspower t-block that has been sitting around. I'll just add the quick disconnect to one end and call it a day. smile.gif

How about res>pump>gpu>cpu>rad>pump >? I would have to relocate my pump with your example? smile.gif
