First water-cooled rig, computer parts ordered, need advices for the water-cooling parts - Page 7

post #61 of 88
If your780 is too big, you can send it too me.
It'll fit in my case.....both of them!

You said you understood almost everything.
What did you not understand? Which part?

If you have problem with kinks in the hoses, dip the area to be bent in boiling water for a few seconds make the bend cool the heated area,repeat. dont do it too many times or it'll mess up the tubing. the diameter tubing u went with is really large and not easy to work with, you will have to do mainly straight runs. people always say push pull, but if you have enough radiators and good enough fans you are fine in a pull configuration. you can even use rad gaskets to help absorb the higher fan speed + help get rid of hte dead spot. Push pull configuration is i guess ideal, but like i said pull is just fine with good fans. good call with all the ek blocks. i also prefer a seperate D5 pump and reservoir as it adds alot more setup options and d5 pumptops look awesome. look at my vader build. maybe you can get a few ideas on tube running. Running really straight lines looks really sharp. anyway GOOD LUCK!!! feel free to PM me for any questions. i've been doing this for yeaaars =) love it! thumb.gifthumb.gifthumb.gif

Once you switch to water cooling, you might be disappointed of your temps at idle and at stock clock.
Water really shines when temps go up.

Yeah, posting questions about water cooling, on a water cooling forum....that's really annoying... rolleyes.gif
Joking of course.

But I have to tell you, I take months, and months to research and buy over several orders. So it's hard for me to look at your list and decide if nothing is missing.

Looks good to go to me anyways.

Which liquid are you going for?
I know some guys use just distilled and PT nuke and they are just fine.

I'll use the liquid you told me, just forgot to put them in the list.

Anyway, like you said, not a big deal if something's missing. I'll assemble the computer tonight and see if all is working good.

Then, I will probably command all this things.

Last question, do you recommend those backplate for the 780, will looks better imo

Anyway I'm ready to order if all seems good.

Yeah, the backplate on EK blocks actually helps cooling some.
And it's the only part of the block you really see. Everyone tries to get a card block with a nice top. But that top will face down where nobody sees it.
Backplates are pricey IMHO, so at your discretion.

Yeah well, I'm ready to spent 900$ + so at this point... 40$ less or more, I think it's ok!

I just sold my last rig a really good price, so I've some cash to spend, let's make things right.

For the colours scheme I'll go with black and another colour but don't know which one yet, something really sober, green's my favorite color, but every green water-cooled parts are flashy and I don't like that, so I'll see! Maybe a sober yellow, like my motherboard. Well at this point, this is all personal I guess smile.gif

Every build I make is always tones, and sober.
And with every build, I always regret I didn't pick more vibrant colors.
In fact, your mobo pic reminds me I wanted to go with a bumble bee theme with this one: black and yellow.
I chickened out.
I'm such a coward when it comes to colors.

This one is black and copper, with some blue.
I think I'll scrap the grey panels.

Yeah, you never know with colors, is such an hard choice.
But all flashy builds are awful in my humble opinion, and looks all the same. I like the clash between yellow and black. or like you said, maybe I can pain the yellow with a marker or something, it does not scrap the copper thoughts ?
