Power supply should be here next week so I can start on some of my sleeving for the water cooling component wiring etc. and just installed an Aquaero 6XT into the case yesterday.

The main holdup is the mother board as I would like to use an ASUS Formula VIII - They are just not available here in Aus until 1st week of March unfortunately.

Not sure what to do with the GPUs at the moment as Pascal will hit sometime this year - may just grab an interim single 980Ti for the time being and then lash out when Pascal comes to fruition....?

Amazing work! I am using the Maximus Formula VIII for my build, it's well worth the wait! The lighting on it is extremely nice and will really pop in your build!

BTW the 560 rad up top in the SMA8 ended up looking great - I think it fills out the top section a lot better than a 480 would and seems to really suit the case. Glad I followed your build at the time when you did yours.

560 up top is the way it should have come. You are right, it fills the top up very nicely. Lol I also have two 560's in the basement now..

Subbed! Man 16mm looks so much better, it flows really well with the fittings than the 12mm does with their compression fittings. I'm ordering the tubing and fittings now, what do you think about just using straight fittings instead of compression? This type of fitting, basically i want the fitting to sit as flush with the tubing as possible, like it blends in.

They work OK but they do not necessarily have the holding power that a compression type does.

You just need to be careful if you have any 'non anchored' runs where the tubing runs downwards from the connector that no excess weight is pulling down on the whole assembly otherwise the tubing could slide out over time. The compression or locking collar type generally provide you with more grip so its less of an issue.

I'm looking at my loop right now and i don't think i see any part that would be pulled down and yanked out, but not entirely sure though. At least i don't see a potential situation where it could slide out. I've never used that type of fitting before so i don't know the holding power of it...here's my loop, it'll be the exact same, you see anything here that could cause the tubing to pop out?

Actually yours looks fine... Looks like all your tubing runs/fittings are physically fully anchored at both ends so I don't foresee any problem at all.

... Man I keep coming back to this build. So digging it. Hey what do you think your flow rate will be?

Hang on - I'll just work it out....


No idea really - as long as its high enough to read on the first division on the rotameter then I'll be happy...biggrin.gif

Realistically probably way to hard to calculate. For instance, I have used quite a few 90 degree fittings but all of them bar one are the Bitspower 'L Block' type which have a very large internal diameter. So in theory those should not add up to too much restriction.

The reservoir connections are all in parallel so they are effectively roughly half the restriction of a single res setup.

Both flowmeters (MPS400 & Rotameter) are known for their low restriction levels and all three rads measure at the low end of restriction graphs as well...

The highest restriction will be the CPU block (EK EVO Supremacy) plus the GPUs - probably opt for parallel hookup of these.

Mobo (ASUS Formula VIII) also has a VRM block which I will be connecting and that is just about it really.

So in practice the whole system should not be all too much different to a 3 rad, cpu plus 2 GPU setup really - maybe a tad more restrictive due to the extra connections but these should not add up to a lot more.... Guess I'll find out once it is all plumbed up and has liquid flowing through it...!

There's always plenty of room in the pedestal for more pumps.....eek.gif

Lol, no I know it's difficult to calculate. I was just curious if you had a number in mind. I think we will have a similar loop so I wonder if our flow rates will be close... Lol currently my cpu is only thing being cooled in my loop so I can't give relevant rates.
