ekwb compression fittings and primo chill tubing

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, i just bought and installed the ek-L360 starter kit, it came with matte black tubing that i eventually would like to change out to maybe rigid tubing and would like to go clear. What ACF fitting would work and what diameter of tubing to use, this stock tubing is 9,5/15,9mm. As you can tell I am new to liquid cooling and any help is appreciated. Also, to expand the system what is the proper way to do it, right now i only have the cpu in the loop, what would i need to do to add lets say 2 gpus?

I am completely confused by what you are asking. The kit comes with the ACF fittings included. If you want to go with clear tubing, you need 3/8 x 5/8 tubing.

OP, rigid tubing uses different fittings so you'd buy them at the same you bought the tubing itself.

To add more blocks to your loop you just need more blocks, fittings, and tubing.

is there a rule of thumb to go by, like what is the max 1 radiator can handle?

Well, the basic is 1x120mm,30mm rad space per component if i'm not mistaken.delta temps won't exactly be amazing though

right now i have the ek coolstream 360 with just the CPU in the loop, can i add my 980ti to that and it would still be reasonably cool?

Hmmm...reasonable is subjective. How high if any are your components overclocked. If they're stock then it should be fine. I'm sure there are others more qualified to answer this. I'm just answering to the best of my knowledge

cpu is at 4.6ghz, gpu is about stock(980ti) not taking well to OC

120mm per component, more if you want to overclock. I have a cpu, GPU, and motherboard on my loop with 720mm of rad space, so 240mm per component. I run quiet fans as well.

My bad for asking incomplete questions. For ease of reference, could you list your system parts as well as OCs and voltages? Better yet, if you haven't already, do take the time to fill out the rigbuilder...

From my admittedly limited experience, the 360 should be able to handle your components though you might have to run the fans at higher speeds, so your system won't exactly be quiey per se
