First water-cooled rig, computer parts ordered, need advices for the water-cooling parts - Page 4

post #31 of 88
Btw, you can find some local WC parts if you browse HWC or RFD.

If not, you can also find parts from NCIX.com.

But I guess its cheaper to buy them all at once. Just try to ship them by USPS or FedEx.

The bridge has nothing to do with performance.

Just aesthetics.

PerformancePCs uses both UPS and regular mail (USPS)
With regular mail, you will likely have to pay.the GST.
With UPS, you will have to convince PPCs to mark it as sample.
I usually go with USPS.

And don't forget the OCN code for 5% discount.
I think it's either OCN, or OCN55

Yeah, just like in the pic. That's a serial connection btw.
Bridge or fittings will not impact on performance.

Just looks, depends on what look you prefer.

And I'm from Noranda, 8 hours North of Montreal.
I left 25 years ago.
They kicked me out when they found out I don't like hockey and poutine. biggrin.gif

Yeah, I like poutine too. I just said that for the purpose of the joke.

Now I just got to thinking. You might actually get BETTER performance without the bridge.

Each time the water flow changes direction, this creates pressure drop and slows down the water flow
With an EK bridge atop the cards, the water has to change direction twice each time it gets in and out of a card
But with tubing, the flow is direct between cards, no elbows, no 90° turns..

So arguably, the difference could be a minor one, but it still exists.

Take a look at this, and tell me if something is wrong/dumb/sheet/missing

I took my time, but I might be wrong for some thing.

Thank you again.

Yeah, French is my first language...you?

Everything looks good to me, spot on. thumb.gif
What about fans? Fan controller? (optional)

Just my personal preference. But I like fast 1800-2500 rpm fans with a good controller to slow them down to under 1000 rpm for silence. Yet a lot of power in reserve if needed. Some guys just prefer 1000-1400 rpm fans left at full speed all the time, no controller.

Actually I'm french from France, but I've been living here for 4 years (exactly today !)

I've already a fan controller (Sunbeam PL-RS-6 Rheosmart) and 6x NOCTUA NF-S12B-FLX 120MM I think I'll need 4 more for the 240mm, I'll push and pull.

They are ugly, but I'm gonna paint then (not the helix tho)

I'll probably need a second fan controller.

And I do love silence so yeah fan controller is my friend.

Hum, I can't find any pictures of your rig, I'm curious, I want to see it smile.gif

Bonne anniversaire!

Well, I can show you some pix, but there really isn't much to see. T's a sloooow build, I'm taking my time with it
as life happens and it's been left on the shelf a few times.

The case is a Caselabs STH10. You have no idea how big those cases are.
Nothing inside really but a few rads and pipes.
Here you can see the left side with.the windowed door still covered and the top rad missing.

I regret the two tone paint. I should have gone with all black, or all greay, but not both.
Here the right side:

I had to make custom fan shrouds for the rad fans in order to fit the four rads all in push/pull. Those shrouds really look like they are part of the case from the factory.
You can see how the bottom rad is only a 360 as opposed to the other 3 being 480's. I had to do that to make room for the PSU.

And here is a pix with the top off to reveil the copper tubing, or a bit of it anyways.


All my other builds have been soft tubing, and they all tend to get cloudy after a while. So I wanted something different for this build.
All copper tubing and bare copper blocks.

I plan on throwing in the mobo and 3x 780ti's this Summer.

15 x 120 rads all in push/pull.
36 to 39 fans. 3x SLI Titans, and 4930k chip, on an Asus Rampage Black Edition mobo.
Triple boot Windoze/Linux Mint/Hackintosh. But I use mainly Mint unless I'm gaming. Hackintosh just so I can say I did and the wife wants it.
I just like building my rigs more than using them to be honest
But too many projects on the go at the same time, and money scattered everywhere.
