Creating a new loop

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi

I'm going to upgrade my computer and I need to create a new loop.

My WC system:
. Pump Swiftech MCP35X
. Rad 360 Phobya
. Rad 240 Black ICE Stealth
. GTX560, EK block
, I7 920, EK block
. P6T Deluxe V2, 3 EK blocks
. 3 90º curves + 3 45º curves + 11 "straight" = 17 connectors (16/10)

I'll change my motherboard and CPU (i5 4670K) and I will not buy blocks for the new motherboard, so I'll use the same system with only two blocks. One of the things I most hate in watercooling systems are the tubes all messy...

... to "arrange" the tubes in the new loop I am thinking to use five or six 90º curves, two or three 45º curves and 1.80 meters of 16/10 tube.


So many curves will influence the temperatures?

What temperature differences I'll have between the same system with and without curves?

Your 35x has more than enough power to push through the minor restriction from those curves. At most you will notice a 1-2C delta which will have no effect on your ability to OC. Go for it!
