Help on my First Custom Loop (CPU Only) Using a Case-Labs S8S - Page 2

post #11 of 18
As i Bruce suggested, you could use the pedestal to solve your space woes, if you want to go that route.
That XSPC combo unit looks interesting.
It wouldn't be my cup of tea, but certainly could save a lot of space, although a pedestal could house a pump, or pumps, as well.
Imo a nickel plated block has minimal, if any, loss in heat transfer over a straight copper block, but could be more resistant to tarnishing/oxidizing.
Using inhibitors in the fluid is a good idea, of course, just don't use a silver kill coil, as EK mentions.

Do you have the stealth hd mount?

That could help to free-up your left side for a rad if you don't go with a pedestal.

Just wonder, CPU Block I want to grab only comes in full copper, I wouldn't want to use kill coil. Rather just use some chemicals.

I can't fit it, I'm off by 2 inches. So Pedestal is out of the question.

The stealth device is full with my two SSD devices. My Standard drives are in the cage. Can't do any changes their.

What I was thinking was use one 120mm fan hole on the left side and attach the res their or buy a additional fan mount that can fit onto the bar and attach it on the other side.

With the pump I will place it over 140mm at the bottom of the case.

Will be using 120/140mm res & pump mounting systems.

I should add that I was think of putting two in which would cut down on space. Which should speed up up the flow of water.

You should be fine with a copper CPU block, mine is also copper, no nickel plating, and has stayed clean for over two years. I also use distilled with biocide/anti-corrosive additive.

That's a good plan for the reservoir and pump.

I do have dual-D5's mounted in an EK dual-D5 top, it is a bit bulky, but I fitted it on the right side case floor, beside the psu.

Dual pumps are nice to have, not totally necessary, but I like the redundancy as well.

Actually, if you can keep the metals all the same you just need bio inhibitor. I believe copper and brass are close enough that you can get by with mixing them, but anything else starts to get dicey. I used copper blocks and radiators that are mostly copper, and fittings that are brass, and it has been very low maintenance.

Everything I'm looking at is copper. Not 100% sure on the fittings. I thinking I'm going to use EK for fittings.

One last Question, What would be the best Choice for CPU Only, But also trying to keep the budget low. I want to get idle temps around 30C or below at stock speed on a i7 5960x with XMP ram enabled.

Also Would Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 be better choice in any of the following scenarios?


I will most likely use Eloops or EK Vardar F4-120er at lowest possible RPM I can get away with but also give me a good enough temps, 900 RPM or below.


Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 240mm (In Push)

or

Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 240mm (In Push)
and
Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 Full Copper 240mm (In Push/Pull)

or

Check out Martin's tests:

https://martinsliquidlab.wordpress.com/2012/05/01/alphacool-nexxxos-st30-360-radiator/4/
https://martinsliquidlab.wordpress.com/2012/04/15/alphacool-nexxxos-xt45-360-radiator/4/
https://martinsliquidlab.wordpress.com/2012/04/12/alphacool-nexxxos-ut60-360-radiator/4/

If you check out the graphs, at 900 RPM all these radiators perform mostly the same, the thick ones maybe even slightly worse.

Thick radiators are really only worth it if you're going to run push/pull and/or very high speed fans.
