[Build Log] - Fractal Define S - X99 - 980 SLI - Watercooled - LF Reaction Reservoir - Page 2

Thanks!

Yeah I considered coloured coolant. I might do it down the track but that particular reservoir can look a bit odd with coloured coolant.

Awesome build! Thanks for posting the info, it really helps.

I'm very intrigued by the Define S and am glad to hear it fits 2x 360s. Do you have any thoughts on whether it would still fit with the reverse fan orientation (push front; pull top). Also Do you think it could fit 2x cross flows given how they tend to be a bit longer (~410mm).

I don't think a reverse fan arrangement will fit with a 6 fan setup. If you where to sacrifice 1 fan it would work I think. The rads could be longer with no problems. If you used 30mm thick rads you might be able to use a cross flow setup but connecting them neatly with standard fitting would be a challenge. If you used non standard mounting holes on the top it might work. The top rad is offset horizontally from the front rad to clear the VRMs on the MB. This particular configuration is pushing right to the limit of 40mm rads and standard mounting holes.

so you just drilled two holes in the motherboard wall and put the pump on there without vibration dampers? do you hear the pump?
And where did you connect your temperature sensor so you could control fan speed by water temp??

I used some left over thermal pad from the gpu blocks as a gasket between the bracket and the case. So far I have no vibration issues, it's silent.

The water temp sensor is a Bitspower fitting and plugs in to the fan extension card that comes with X99 Deluxe. It's all controlled using the Asus software.

Hi,

nice build I have to say and nicely done...thumb.gif

Questions:
1)
Is that parallel loop connection between the GPUs?
I was always wondering if there's any advantage over serial loop connection?

2)
Do You think 420 at the front and 360 at the top will be OK or no go..?

Cheers.

Did you have to put your top 360 back further towards the rear of case to fit the front 360 rad?

I noticed your top 360 doesn't sit as far forward as mine and it seems to be sitting further back.

Thanks!

I used a parallel config on the gpus to reduce pressure drop. It works very well, both gpus run at identical temperature.

A 420 will work in the front provided the rad and fans are no thinker than what I used in my config.

I used the standard mounting holes on the top radiator. No modification necessary. The front holes are elongated out of the box so the front rad almost sits on the floor of the case.

Actually scrap that, I'm pretty sure a 420 won't fit in the front.
