Water cooling help?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I was think about doing my first water cooled PC on my new build. So this is what I have so far...
My planning build, I have already bought some parts for this build.

http://ca.pcpartpicker.com/user/IBIubbleTea/saved/29xU

The case I'm planning on getting is the Corsair 750D, Here are some of the parts I have choisen for the build (rad, fans etc...)

Top rad:
Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 360mm
http://www.aquatuning.us/product_info.php/info/p12340_Alphacool-NexXxoS-XT45-Full-Copper-360mm.html
Bottom rad:
Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 240mm
http://www.aquatuning.us/product_info.php/info/p12348_Alphacool-NexXxoS-XT45-Full-Copper-240mm.html
CPU Block:
Koolance Intel Water Block:

GPU Block:
Koolance R9 290, 290x Water Block VID-AR290X:
http://koolance.com/video-card-vga-amd-radeon-r9-290x-water-block-vid-ar290x
Fans:
Corsair SP120 PWM High Performance

Tubing:
PrimoChill PRIMOFLEX™ Advanced LRT™ Bloodshed Red 3/8 ID 5/8 OD Tubing (10FT)
http://ncix.com/products/?sku=78757&vpn=PFLEXA10-58-R&manufacture=Primochill&promoid=1198
Fittings:
http://koolance.com/nozzle-single-compression-for-10mm-x-16mm-3-8in-x-5-8in
Reservoir:
?
Pump:
Swiftech MCP655
http://www.swiftech.com/mcp655.aspx
PWM Splitter:
Swiftech 8W-PWM-SPL-ST 8 Way PWM Splitter With SATA Connector
http://ncix.ca/products/?sku=87800&vpn=8W-PWM-SPL-ST&manufacture=Swiftech&promoid=1294

So I'm missing the pump and Reservoir, Not sure what kind to get.
For the fans I might just do Push config, for the rear fan I might have it as an Intake for better airflow and also will be getting some dust filters for the rear and bottom.
All fans will be controlled my Fan Xpert 2, that is what I'm planning/hoping for.

Loop plan:
Used Paint because I didn't know what to use to make the diagram. First time xD


I am open to suggestions and feedback. Thanks.

D5 vario is enough for your loop. As per the reservoir, personally i'd avoid having a bay res.

Much harder to bleed and fill up. And there's a few instance of the bay cracking and/or the glue separating.

I'd reconsider getting the SP120. These things are loud running at 12 volts. Even at 7V they're tolerable.

I'd splurge a bit and get the gentle typhoons. Much quieter running at 12V than the SP120.

I picked the sp's because of da looks and the high static pressure. I will be controlling the fans from my mobo so don't worry.

For the res I want something that has more then one top port for filling and CPU to res loop. Also how would I drain this thing?

I'm curious, Why do you need one more port for filling?

Since your rad is the lowest component (as per diagram), i'd be creative in putting some sort of T-line there make it easier for draining.

I want to have a fill port at the top and also I 'm planning on looping the cpu to the res from the top. I think that just makes it look alot better.
