Am i getting a hang of picking loop parts?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Alrite guys so im starting to get into custom loops and though i only have an h60 now i just want to educate myself. This rig is totally made up and 'proposed', just as an example to see if i understand this stuff. smile.gif To start off let me know if i am right with this info. a 240 rad is good for just a cpu loop right? Also if i was going to cool a cpu and a gpu would 2 240s do the trick? or maybe 2 240s, and a 120. Or a 360 and a 240. Are these all good options? Also are res+pump combos good? or not well performing? Ok heres the 'build' Say im cooling an i7 4770K along with a gtx 780. Lets just say im on a budget case wise and we'l go with a corsair c70. Also if it matters this will be a black and white build. (I really want a black and white build) Would these parts be good? Please critique and give me tips on what to look for. Also this time im not really focusing on pricing just trying to see if im doing this right.

cpu block - EK-Supreme LTX - Acetal+Nickel CSQ

gpu block - EK-FC670 GTX - Acetal

pump - swiftech MCP350

rads - x2 EK-CoolStream RAD XT (240)

tubing - 10ft 1/2inch Primochill elegant white tubing

res - xspc d5 dual bay res d5

fittings - x10 EK-CSQ black fittings (is 10 the amount i need? 4 for both rads 4 for both blocks and 2 for res?)

coolant - distilled water

biocide - silver kill coil

x4 white corsair performance series fans in pull configuration for rads

Am i missing anything?

OK this is where im kinda unsure. The loop order. I'll mock up an image in paint. I'm not sure about the pump placement :/ otherwise is it good?:

cpu block - EK-Supreme LTX - Acetal+Nickel CSQ

gpu block - EK-FC670 GTX - Acetal

pump - swiftech MCP350 No need for this pump if using a D5 BAY RES

rads - x2 EK-CoolStream RAD XT (240)

tubing - 10ft 1/2inch Primochill elegant white tubing

res - xspc d5 dual bay res d5 See above, D5 pump OR a res that would use a DDC pump

fittings - x10 EK-CSQ black fittings (is 10 the amount i need? 4 for both rads 4 for both blocks and 2 for res?) .According to your pic I count 12, But fixing the pump issue would be 10

coolant - distilled water

biocide - silver kill coil

x4 white corsair performance series fans in pull configuration for rads

Am i missing anything?

OK this is where im kinda unsure. The loop order. I'll mock up an image in paint. I'm not sure about the pump placement :/ otherwise is it good?:

Loop order doesn't matter except that res is before pump. Temp will only be 1-2C diff throughout loop.

Fans at what speed ?

Well say 145 watts for an OC'd 4770k and 275 for OC'd 780 .... that's 420 watts

At 1400 rpm ....

http://martinsliquidlab.org/2012/04/16/ek-coolstream-rad-xt-360/4/

Ya 240 EK XT will take out 197 watts .... two will do 394 watts .... At 1800 two will give ya 492 watts

If taht kinda noise bothers ya, ya might wanna upgrade to the Alphacool UT60 (210 watts at 1400 rpm - 7% more efficient) .... two rads give ya 420 watts at 1400 rpm

yeah if i was building a real rig i would go i7 3770K which does great under water smile.gif. would this setup work for that cpu or would you recommend thicker rads? Are my choices of blocks good? i know ek has good temps on the gpu side of things but not sure on cpu. i just looove the way ek blocks look
