Pump Always at the Lowest Point?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
So I have a FT02-W, Which brings an interesting engineering/water cooling build feat.

So does the pump always need to be at the lowest point?

I was gonna put the pump right above the Hard Drive Cage and then put a Res hanging from the top of the case(barely enough room).

Do you guys think this would be a good idea.

With that flow would be from right to left.

Out Pump -> GPU -> 140 Top Rad -> CPU -> 360 Bottom Rad --> Top Res -> In Pump

For some reason I think having the res and then the rad in the top bottom location would be bad...

Any help on this would help as well as should i make the pump 24V?

The pump can be anywhere you want as long as it has water available at its inlet during bleed. Generally you want the reservoir just before the pump to assist w/ bleeding. It makes it 11ty easier but it isn't absolutely required.

A D5 strong @ 24V is definitely not required for a 2 block loop.

Loop order is otherwise meaningless. It has no impact on temperatures.

Alright thanks, when would the 24V be needed and does it help at all in smaller loop?


Also the way I have it now looks good with the Res feeding the pump from above and the bottom rad feeding into the res?

Also anyone have any counter points or another 2 cents to share?

You don't want the pump to run dry. EVER. This is why you generally put it at a lower point. However providing that it is lower than the res, gravity will always feed the pump. You can have other components lower than the pump its probably just a smarter idea to have the pump lower than the reservoir.

Alright I thought so, I really just wish the case labs guys have a good case with a dust filter system in mind (and I had the spare cash...) but yeah not sure if im gonna do with my FT02 or not... I really dont want to have to deal with the tight space and possible problems.. dont want a bay res...
