First Loop and I have some questions. - Page 5

post #41 of 190
do yourself a favor and just get ONE 360 instead of 240+120. far less complex and much less resistance. 2x 240's would be even better, these new Koolances are great choices, but an EK xtx is easier to bleed!

as far as blocks go, give XSPC a look-see for BOTH cpu and gpu, there looks are killer and there performance/dollar is KING

pump / res? god im going to sound like an xspc rep but check out their new Photon res/pump

but really any tube over D5 is a good choice for quiet/reliability/strength

other than that, use rotary anything barbs (makes fitting tubing waaaaaaaaaaaaay easier)

Don't mind dongteixinqi, it's some kind of spam bot that just copies a line from another post in the thread and tries to insert a link to another site.

I agree though, after a certain point adding more fans is just going to add more noise. With your setup 3 fans should be plenty and if you feel you need more, you can always add them in later.

setting the pump is somthing you kinda hafta figure out once the whole setup is done.

jsut find the happy medium between noise and flow (to the point where you're not sucking air in from your res

BTW, where are you finding these Gentle Typhoon fans anyway, pretty sure they're discontinued mad.gifmad.gifmad.gif

the gpu block is pretty fixed since it's a non-standard PCB, and I only found 2 that fit it. If memory serves me correctly, XSPC actually claimed that their blocks werent compatible with my card at all.

I like my pump / res combo too... I don't really see any reason to change it. The res / pump fit in a drive bay (which I have about 4 too many of anyway) and it has an easy fill port.

Provinding your controller is rated high enough, you can use it for the pump. Yes, you would set it on 5 and let the controller do the rest. Or set the pump dial and forget about it.

Most guys want to have control over every parameter of their loop, and I understand that. I'm like that too.
But when it comes to the pump, there are no scenario that warrants speed changes.
So you can put it on your controller.
Their is just simply no need to do it.

Unless you are using the CW611?
In that case, putting the pump on the controller would prevent the additional heat dump of undervolting into your loop.

there are too many heat sources to consider for a pump to be on your f/c, just set it and forget it

I'd get them now if I were you. Probably around 16-17$ in USD.

I haven't placed my order yet, so I don't want to say wink.gif

I want to make sure I understand though. You're saying that it's not necessarily true that I'll just set the D5 to "5" and then configure the controller?

Hi again PepeLapiu smile.gif

Ya, I'm going with the CW611

Well, if the pump does the undervolting, that generated heat will be dumped into the loop, however insignificant you think that heat may be.
If a Lamptron does the undervolting, only minimum heat is generated, and not dumped into the loop.

Too many heat sources?
Maybe.....eliminating one of them could be a good start.
