Thanks Radnad


I've been assembling my new build also to help with figuring out what will fit and such.

MB (all but CPU Cooler), 2 - EVGA Titan x SC w/ EK waterblocks & backplate, EVGA 1600 PSU, Two of my Alphacool 120mm X 360mm rads with 9 fans.

This thing is getting heavy @ 50 lbs without: the sides on, PSU wires, the rest of the loop & of course water.

Now case flow / fans are: (case fans are stock Phanteks at this time)

1) Front 2 x 140 blow in
2) Back 1 x 140 blows out - would blow in be good or would that effect chipset cooling?
3) Rt side 2 x 140 blow in

Fans are Swiftech Helix 120s on rads
4) Top radiator 6 x 120 in a push/ pule directed out
5) Bottom rad. 3 x 120 in a push into the case (figured in was OK & takes advantage of the bottom filters)


With Primo the PSU is seperate - but has nice airflow, standard mounting separates it and has side intake.

Decided on - EK Supremacy EVO CPU waterblock - full nickel

Pump: this Über 655 Fully Modded (D5) looks interesting
http://www.performance-pcs.com/performance-pcs-b-ber-655-b-fully-modded-d5-12-vdc-water-pump-blue.html

fittings: EK-ACF Compression Fitting 13/19mm (1/2 x 3/4") model: EK-ACF1319-BL

http://www.performance-pcs.com/ek-acf-compression-fitting-13-19mm-1-2-x-3-4-blue.html

other fittings are being looked into; and if I find a great deal - who knows what I'll end up with as far as brand.

If you go with ZMT your fittings will need to be the 3/8 x 5/8 size. Loving the blue, your going to have some nice color in that build. For the rads its generally recommend to run both as exhaust or both as intake, having one of each usually means warm air from one is getting blown over the other and gives less cooling efficiency. Since you like the colored fittings the other brand you might want to look at is Monsoon, their colored fittings look really really good.

Pulled the trigger on the rest of the loop - to use with my two 120 x 360 rads.
Have:
GPUs - EK-FC Acetal + Nickel blocks on my pair of Titan X SC, along with the back plate.

On order:

CPU - EK-Supremacy EVO CPU Water Block - Full Nickel, Model: EK-SUPREMACY-EVO-FULLNK

EK-RES X3 250 Reservoir, Model: EK-RES-X3-250


Swifteck 655 pump - Bitspower D5/MCP655 MOD Top


PrimoFlex Advanced LRT Clear hose in 1/2in. ID by 3/4in. OD hose.

ModMyToys Blue Carbon Fiber Enhanced Compression Fittings, 1/2" x 3/4" - Chrome, Model: MMT-CFF-CH-BL-1234-6

due to arrive Friday (today)by 8 PM, if FedEx gets it here as scheduled


NOTE:
PrimoFlex Advanced LRT specifications state: DEHP Free - Phthalate Free - (I know these are plasticizes)

I keep reading all the posts about plasticize leaching and white residue inside of hoses.

Seems to be most brands and coolant setups. Several hours of reading posts and there seems to be no "clear" winner for best hose, (pun intended)

Did I miss something??


Is Tygon E-1000, simply the best hose for PC WC? (one form member mentioned they liked it)

Edited original post to focus on best hose for water cooling in 1/2 inch ID by 3/4 inch OD flexible hose.

If I need to punt and return the PrimoFlex Advanced LRT - I would appreciate input sooner rather than later; so I can order a replacement hose ASAP.
post #16 of 16
Bottom line if want no possibility of breakdown or residue with a soft tubing tygon is going to be your best bet.
