Corsair 350D Water Build Ready For Review

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a Corsair 350D and will be watercooling it pretty soon. After much researching I came up with this build. I really want to use a tube res instead of a tank or bay res, so I went with the tube and pump/top combo you see. I want to screw on the tube res on top of the pump top since it might look cleaner than hanging it out somewhere else. Is this possible? As for the fittings, I just went with all straight ones since for now I'm more concerned with the configuration of the pump/res then I'll worry about getting a variety of 90, 45 degree and straight fittings. I want the build to be as quiet as possible so I went with the D5 vario pump. I'll also be using regular distilled water so do I have to buy a separate additive? I think the primochill tubing comes with some included.

If you want to connect your res to your pump you can use something like this. Also you'll either need a kill coil or biocide because the primochill tubing doesn't come with any.

That's perfect, I can't believe I didn't see that when I was shopping for fittings. I'll take note on buying some biocide and that fitting you mentioned. Thanks!

Do the materials in this build be ok in terms of possible corrosion? I should be ok as long as I don't use any aluminum components...as long as it doesn't come in contact with the water, correct?

Primochill tubing comes with system prep solution not biocide.
Aluminum is fine outside of the water contact area.

I'm assuming you're planning on putting the pump and reservoir on the floor between the psu and front rad. Just a heads up, there will be about 17cm between the floor and your gpu. Just make sure you're reservoir and pump setup won't be taller than that.

The ek fittings might give you corrosion problems. I have some ek rotaries that started to flake and corrode after only a couple months of use but maybe mine were just shoddy.

I would use a more stable way to mount the reservoir than a small rotary fitting.
Use something like this
