I know exactly what you mean.. For Australia pccg is as good as it gets unfortunately, their range is quite limited I find for the average watercooler they're good but when it comes to doing an all out build in the 900D or any case for that matter you're really restricted not just for bits but then time of awaiting delivery from the US.


If I was running things at pccg, I'd make sure we get 90% of wc gear that the US/EU have. It isn't like pccg can't afford it, I understand new gpus or CPU's only having limited stock during release, pumps, fans, fittings (least have 5 different branded ones and what not. We probably only have 5% of the bitspower range of that lol.


But yeah they're not up to date with water cooling at all not for the more enthusiast builder anyway, they should offer E22 tubing and EK acrylic too. I bought an ek x3 250 res from them and the turbulent acrylic EK thing was broken and they wouldn't replace just that bit I have to order from ek man! Lol


So back to the half tubing half acrylic. If I am able to run normal hose between the rads then just acrylic from the pump to the cards and mobo/CPU I may go that route.

I think the biggest issue for me for someone who's coming from doing just a basic CPU loop, is actually knowing what fittings I will need, no doubt I'm going to need spacers, adapters, 90deg and so forth.

I wanted to get black sparkle but of course pccg have none in stock or just one or two available lol

With a couple rads that are thicker (like the ones you have), you won't have a problem with those fans. They're baller biggrin.gif

I'm glad i've got clarification on the eLoop's, I've read and been told so many mixed things about them one guy even said you can't even use them in push as you need an 8mm spacer as you will get a massive whine. Well when i tested mine on the XT45 they were silent and absolutely no whine either.

Not a problem dude! I've got 5 of them in my system, plus 6 PL-2 fans, and 4 PK-2 fans. All golden, all silent. Build looks good dude! thumb.gif can't wait to see those Classy's in the loop biggrin.gif

Yeah i think i may run 4 of the eLoop B12-3 on all the rads,I may as the PC store here in australia has only a small range of the Noiseblocker fans yet again we get ripped They do stock the PL-2 120mm. Well now that is sorted i'll run 4 on the bottom rad 4 on the top, and 2 PL-2 fans on the mosta 240. Would it have enough to push air through the 80mm thick rad? I was under the assumption a higher CFM or Static Pressure is required for real thick rads and high FPI rads



I need to get that molex fan connector too, is that from ModmyPC Toys* or something

As much as i love Australia when i moved here from Europe over 20 years ago, the cost of living is the highest then anywhere else in the world lol. As the saying goes "the rich get richer and the poor get poorer"

I need to get that molex fan connector too, is that from ModmyPC or something like that?

What I always do for my fans is use a Bitspower X-Station and run splitter PCB's like THIS to keep the fans at a lower constant speed. I personally use B12-2 fans in mine because I wanted the option of keeping them at a lower speed where they're absolutely silent, but not really loud like they'd be at full speed with the B12-3's. My ears are weird dude tongue.gif

My ears are weird dude tongue.gif

You are weird dude tongue.gif The PL-2 is like dead silent you must have hearing like mighty mouse thumb.giftongue.gif I think i'll be able to run them at 100% as i just had a quick look at a video from singularity computers, and he ran 12 PL-2 fans i believe and he said he will run them at 100% as they're near silent.

Dude soemthing is wrong with you go see your DR. haha

All jokes aside, i'll stick with 8 B12-3 and the PL-2's on the monsta, I just order all the remaining fans I needed.

I went to go purchase PrimoChill Clear Acrylic tubing and they do not even have it listed! *** lol

Looks like i still have to order from the States half my luck too hey wth.gif


With running your loop too, is it proffered to run 2 separate loops? I have been reading mixed opinions and thoughts about running 2 separate loops V just the one, it seem's that running a single loop is more than capable. I am assuming the folk who do run 2 loops do it for convenience/aesthetics?

Personally i think a single loop will be awesome in your build,and you are right i cant get the fittings (ghost or revolver) they have 2 ugly colors left....I wanted to go acrylic and they dnt have the clear acrylic tubing i wanted also not to mention the angle adapter to work with....

I'm half deaf in my left ear so my hearing is not that sensitive tongue.gif I just hate background noise which is what fans, so they literally have to be silent. Dual loops looks cool if you have the space, but having two pumps and so many more lines to run can create headaches for powering everything plus not crossing tubing paths because that usually ends up messy. I'm most likely going to stick with just one loop with all my rigs. I'd only seriously run two loops if I had like quad 590's or quad 290X's in a single loop and some absurdly hot CPU and a bunch of other stuff in the second loop.

Yeah I was thinking a single would be fine for mine, maybe when I get the third classy i already see how I'll cut into the case to possibly fit another 480 Haha.


When did u last try and get the clear? I think getting fittings and acrylic from the states is the only real viable option imo. I may even get my pump sleeved and with housing saves me doing it in this instance FrozenCPU is the cheaper option.

Or another option is buy coloured acrylic from PCCG and use the PrimoChill Ice Intensified liquid to match the acrylic (just seems like a headache really lol)
