Final build pic up! thanks for all the help guys. - Page 2

post #11 of 33
Alright. I'm going to try my best to walk you through this crisis. I'll try to format it best I can

Resevoir
I recommend right above your hard drive cage with the mounting plate on the front bezel. The mounting place has two rings that you snap on. Either attach it with screws or Velcro. Make sure to leave about enough room for pump to sit under

Pump
I would put it above the hard drive cage. Many ways to do this. Velcro. Adhesive. Rubber. Tape. hell even zip ties make sure, as everyone will tell you, make sure the resevoir feeds to the pump directly so there is constant water. Otherwise it will run dry and die. An analogy for this. Imagine making macaroni without water. The macaronie will just burn in the pot, and you wasted a few bucks. In this case, you wasted 60. Generally, it should say with an arrow which is in and out with an arrow. Otherwise look at manual

Radiator
Just slap em on with some screws. Don't screw too deep or you'll go into the tubes. Can't think of analogy. Just make sure your screw is right length. And make sure you know where the port/ inlet outlet is. Once faced the wrong way after making a loop. Had to disassemble my whole system.

Fittings
Fittings are the actual bits that fit onto your parts such as res, CPU block gpu block. 45 and 90 do not secure the tube from one component to another. Hat refers to the degree of measurement to help tight spots. The actual head that you stick the tube onto is called compression fitting or barb.

Two types of fittings.
Barb is just a series of one way channels to hold the tube. These are basic and have not as much as sercurity. Imagine just a regular dog leash
Compression has a collar to the barb. These are tighter and more secure. Imagine full body harness for dogs. Stronger and secure

Tubes. There are multiple types of tubes, each has to match. There's inner diameter and outer diameter. ID and OD respectively.

What has to be compatible?
The fitting thread. Make sure they are all g 1/4 basic for the screwing in part.
Tubing diameter. Make sure the tube and fitting say the same thing. I.e. 3/4od and 1/2 id tube needs, you guessed it. 3/4 od and 1/2 id.
Stressing it more. Res above pump

Accessories/others
What liquid to run in the loop?
Preference for me is distilled water from grocery stores. The best. Others may contest

Other stuff to buy
Silver to kill algae or stuff. If you are in chem. a biocide. Usually called silver coil. It's cheap, trust me it's not like dropping in a diamond necklace.
Anti corrosion. I can't help you here. I use pretty much same metal.

That's about all I got. Just watch a lot of YouTube. and if you need help and questions. Pm me or reply to this thread. Glhf have fun don't leak.

Edit. Autocorrect on phone
😛

A few questions. Gimme full comps ends list of pc product. Water cool product. Accessory products that you bought. EVERYTHING. and what case is that. Seems NZXT. Can't pinpoint. I can help you more from there. And don't panic. I'm here

Again, look at my rig if you want an idea.

There isn't a place you're supposed to mount it. You customize it yourself. You can make your own brackets that attach to radiators or just bracket it onto a bay drive enclosure.

Figure out what fits for you and then make it happen.

The thing is, silver dragon, he hasn't built a WC in over years. And he's not up to speed. So it's our job to suggest where, Nd give him a few options of location, such as A, B, or C. Otherwise he'd just be like what the **** do I do. Cause he's new, and everyone had to start somewhere. My first WC system, I had lots of help and suggestion of placement of things.

I mean that's what I did and a lot of other people did. You start moving the reservoir around, try and see where it has space. Then once you figure out where you want to mount it, we can help him come up with a mounting solution.

Like I told him, if he just wants to copy a rig, he can use mine. We have the exact same case and everything else is pretty similar as well. The reservoir might be too big, but I've never seen a 270 in person so I don't know.

Now that I went through your system and such, it actually would be a great idea to use you as inspiration. Considering the parts, case, and stuff. But let's try our best to explain rather than just copy. Because we need to teach him, and not just copy. He needs to pass down the knowledge and continue the never ending loop of teaching the next generation.

Yea, that's why I'm telling him to find a place that works rather than us telling him where to put it. Looking at other builds helps a ton.

I'm not trying to be an ass about it, but this is one of the things where he really needs to figure it out on his own. Bracket is where we can really help.

What bracket? I have search all over and I don't see any brackets for sale for this purpose.

Okay this guy gave me an idea, I like the L bracket he made.
