Planned loop for a 900D - Help welcome

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
I'm just making what will hopefully be some final decisions for an upcoming loop in my new build and I was hoping you could help out to see if I've made any glaring mistakes or omissions. It will all be going into a 900D:

Radiators
2 x ST45 480
ST30 360
ST45 240

Loop components
2 x Aqua computer D5 pumps (in Bitspower mod kits)
EK serial duel pump top
250mm Reservoir with riser tube and multiport top to help with routing options
2 x Aqua computer kryographics for GTX 780 Ti acrylic glass edition
Aqua computer cuplex kryos HF

Monitoring
Aquaero 6 (probably pro)
Aquacomputer inline temp sensor
Aquacomputer ‘High Flow’ sensor

Fittings will depend on what size tubing I end up going for, at the minute I'm planning on going 16mm rigid acrylic with the EK fittings however the primochill fittings with 13mm acrylic is also an option. I’d like to keep the pipe at either of those two diameters as I'm planning to pick up the Monsoon acrylic mod kit when it finally becomes available.

Do any of you have an opinion on what size acrylic tube would look better in the 900D, I'm leaning towards the 16mm as the case is quite large so it won’t look like spaghetti in there.

Will the fittings be able to go straight onto the Aqua Computer Cuplex Kryos HF without any clearance issues or would I need to get something else to fit them on?

Any suggestions on a tube res around 250mm that supports a multiport top?

I love my Bitspower Z-Multi 250 Reservoir. I have two actually. Comes in either Black or Clear endcaps

Can't really help with any of your other questions though. Although personal preference, larger diameter tubes look much better in small tube in such large cases like the 900D

Unless you are willing to mod out the front, you can't have a 360mm rad with another 480 in the bottom.

Thanks More, I'll look into those, I think I already had but it's nice to get some positive feedback.

Hi, Geggeg, I'd been following Bomberjun's build, I think it should be fine, might have to drill out a couple of rivets but I don't mind that too much. Was that what you were referring to? I think as long as it's 30mm or less, it should fit.

Does anyone have any experience with fittings and the Cuplex CPU block?

Cuplex CPU block? Is that that cheap OCZ deal? (with the small outset milling)?
If so..You will need a different block.
You're spending a lot of money on rads n stuff..
I'm thinking better cooling could be achieved with a bong cooler er summin.

You'll want a decent CPU block..Raystorm ..for example.

The Cuplex is made by AquaComputer. It's actually a pretty good block. Still holds up to some of the newer blocks in testing. Very high quality.

Don't worry, it's not the cheap option, and my wallet knows it! biggrin.gifAqua computer cuplex kryos HF

The few waterblock roundups i've seen for 1150 show all the blocks performing within a few degrees of each other, so I decided to go with one of the 'lookers' thumb.gif

Sorry, just saw you mentioned a bong cooler. I think they're sub-ambient aren't they? Don't fancy messing around with that, not for my first proper build anyway! redface.gif

For your setup I would suggest using the reservoir conversion kit for the pump top which allows you to install a res to the pump top. You can get the tube separately in different sizes like a 250 and get a multi top . Otherwise the Bitspower Z Tank 250 are very good.

geggeg is right a 480 on the bottom and a 360 is an extremely tight fit and in most cases it wont work, if you need a front mount rad get a 240, thats what I'm doing.

I have the standard Primochil acrylic and it looks fine in the 900D, Honestly I would say the 16mm would be a bit too much and with everything you are throwing in the case it will fill up quickly.

Thanks for the input, Defiler. I'll look into the EK reservoir components you linked.

You're probably right about the 360, I'm planning on cooling a 4770K and two 780ti's, so the loop is already overkill. I think I'll probably drop it down to play it a little more safely. This should also give me a few more options with airflow in the bottom area as I'm planning on making a lit mid panel.

How did you find the Primochill fittings when you did your loop?

The fittings were great my only challenge was at times unscrewing them if I for whatever foolish reason tightened them without tube in they were almost impossible to loosen without screwing the fitting to a block to loosen the collar. Otherwise no leaks, just make sure the fitting is screwed all the way down so the o ring compresses and is snug, some times you think the way they are all the way in but the fitting will still go for a couple of twists more to actually compress the oring.

Are you going to have the mid panel made or are you making it yourself? I'm waiting for cold zero to have the site back up to get one for mine.
