Planning new water loop routing.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi guys.

This is going to be my first custom loot, so I'm keeping it simple first. I was thinking about doing a custom loop in my pc because the summers here are really warm and cpu temps are starting to reach concerning temperatures (84c) even with a CM Hyper 212 Evo with a push/pull config. My case is a Phantek Enthoo Evolv ATX and I'm planing to run a 360 and a 240 rads in the case's top and front mounting areas and a xspc water cooling kit plus some extra fittings and tubing for a gpu.

My plan was to go reservoir/pump > gpu block > cpu block > top rad > front rad > pump res/pump.

I know that the bleed port should be at the lowest point in the loop, so in this case it will be in between the front rad and pump/res combo, so I was thinking about running a T joint
here and fit a valve to this poit and use it for bleeding.

I'm using a XSPC Photon pump/res combo, I would also like to know if the pump will provide enough flow for this loop or are there better solutions out there.

If you have any ideas/recommendation for the layout, routing and hardware used it would be very much appreciated.

Thank you.

You might want to read this. It's the "right" way to do it.

Kind of old parts, but you'll get the idea..............
