Loop running now finally -- nailing down temps - Page 2

post #11 of 37
Thread Starter 
First loop installed and leak testing for 24 hrs.

Only thing i'm not sure on is do I want the fans pulling air from the radiator or pushing it through ? Seems that it doesn't really matter either way but i'm probably wrong.

Either way works, but some fans are better at push than pull. I would default to push unless you know your fans work well in pull.

Yeah, I think that's the way I'd do it. Any reason you couldn't mount the radiator inside the case? Should fit in the front, no?

Where in the front exactly? The book the loop came with didn't even mention anything other than top(outside/inside) and rear mount.

I like the top mount so far personally it is supposed to give the best temps and the case is already cramped imo without a 240mm rad in it (getting a much bigger case next time)

Looks like you forgot the mounting plate on the cpu block.
And i would put the rad either place where the yellow squares in the pic biggrin.gif

Kind of hard to tell from the picture if there is enough space to put it in front of those black vertical case pieces (the HD rack) or not. Is that part removable? If so, take those pieces out and mount it in front - that way you get cool outside air on the rad, and the rad fans double as case fans (albeit with slightly warmer air). Like Solar mentioned, it looks like you'll have to take the loop apart anyway to put the mounting attachment on the CPU block, so may as well look at alternative configurations while you are at it. Unless you just really like the external mount, of course. Nothing wrong with it that way, just not as aesthetically pleasing maybe.

I'm also considering buying one of these. Probably the 360mm Rad to put in the top of my HAF 932.

Just finished watching this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ca2toIGW_m0

They stated that the manual? I think stated that it was best if the Rad Fans were mounted as exhaust. Which would be easy to do in your case. IMO I'd mount the rad to the top inside the case and Mount the fans so the air is pushing up through the top of the case.

Sure enough my wife realized we were missing the mounting part for the cpu block and woke me up this morning.... We just disconnected the actual cpu block to put that part on but now the pump doesn't seem to be starting and I have no idea why, it has no on off switch just supposed to turn on when you plug in the molex.... I hear no humming or anything.


There is not enough clearance to have this installed inside the top of the case guys, as far as mounting it in front I don't think that hdd cage comes out and I need it for the hard drives anyway.

++ with fans on the rad also no way it will fit. So it really seems like top mount was my best option.... but now the pump doesn't work

Guess the pump is just dead already ?

nvm got it working, I turned the entire computer case upside down and it pushed the air out of the pump and it started working again. I had tried rocking it back and forth before and that didn't work so i'll have to remember just turning it upside down.


haha I had thought things went too smoothly on setup...... Got it all setup with no leaks and had forgot the mounting parts of the block, then get that fixed and the pump isn't working biggrin.gif
