First Loop and I have some questions. - Page 9

Yeah, It says advanced. Thanks for the heads up though.

The "tubes" arent coming out of the right places in this picture, but they give u a general idea of what components will have tubes running between them.

I realised that the instructions I gave above dont make any sense.... Ignore them, here is what I'm ACTUALLY thinking rolleyes.gif

My reasoning is this:

Quote:
for the pump: straight barbs

because the In/Out comes straight out of the back... the CPU (our first stop) and the RAD in the front (our previous stop) are both a good distance away, no sharp bends (i think) here. Maybe I should do one 90 degree bend on the IN, since the radiator is below the pump and tubing has to get around the drive bay cage?
Quote:
for the CPU: probably two straight
Nothing looks too cramped at this step

Quote:
for the top radiator: two straight
If I put the In/Out of this radiator against the back wall of the case, there shouldn't be any awkward angles here either.

I've changed my mind for the GPU. Look here

http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/sidewindercomputers_2266_183883705

The I/O of the GPU runs parallel to the motherboard, but points AWAY from the top of the case (where the tubing is coming from). It doesn't seem ideal to have the tubing wrapped around the card 180 degrees (since the tubing is coming from the top of the case, but needs to enter the waterblock from the bottom of the case). Can I do anything to fix this? Are there any fittings that can help here?

The output of the GPU doesn't appear to be a problem. Probably a 90 degree barb here.. to send it off in the right direction toward the front of the case.

for the bottom radiator: two straight
Everything here is pretty roomy... I see no reason to use any barbs with a bend.

If it's this block, it looks like there are inlets and outlets on the top and bottom to use which ever is more convenient. I think you could get away with no angled fittings but it couldn't hurt to have 1 or 2 just in case.

That's the one!

How can you tell? This guy here is a picture of the back of the block. I don't see any I/O. Is this a customizable option once I have it?

Also, your setup surrounds the pump on both sides with a RAD.. there's nothing dumping heat in to the loop between the RADS. Is this not worth considering?

If you look at the 3rd pic, that's what will be facing up towards the top of your case, you can see the openings if you look close. It is kinda hard to see since it's so dark. Also it says this in the description; "Threads on both sides of the connection block ease integration into the cooling loop."

Ugh, kill me... if only I had just RTFM. Thank you... maybe I should sleep before continuing this adventure

Any last comments before I hit "Order" ? I THINK I've accounted for everything... if it occurs to you that I've forgotten something, please mention it!



The case that I'll be mounting all this in is the Corsair 750D, and I'm currently operating under the assumption that to mount this equipment (from the image) in that case (corsair 750D), I won't need brackets or special hardware or really anything other than what's in that shopping cart, and of course the case itself. Please correct me if I'm wrong, because I'd really like to save on shipping by ordering everything at once.

Don't forget either a silver coil or some biocide and a pair of tube cutters helps a lot.
