You could even secure it if wanted with a very thin clear plastic zip tie to the tray. will look clean, and reduce back and forth movement with the coolant. That is the biggest type of hit on flow. ascending,descending, and ascending again. Pumping from the top down in a singular route has proven to be my preferred method. The added heat from the CPU will be so little it will not affect the performance. After the GPU's, which will definitely produce a lot more heat, the water will pass through the bottom rad. helping to cool and balance the entire loop.

Thank you DRK, That really has been quite helpful.

I have take this view into consideration and have come up with this scenario with some minor changes, Instead of the Two EK Rads I can get two of Black Ice Xflow GTS 480 Rads

Replacing the EK Duel REVO pump with a Dual Bay Res with single D5 Laing Pump, Though I dont like the fact there is no pump redundancy with the Bay Res w/ pump option

,

This is more aesthetically pleasing

That is a lot better design and easier to build and looks better so win win. I am not sure on your drive setup but I would delete the hard drive cages if you don't use a 3.5 drive. Also check out Cold Zero website they sell quite a few mods for the 900d that make it pretty killer. I would stick with the design you have there, I would not reverse the flow. Not saying that a D5 doesn't have the grunt to push it but why make it when you can have gravity help you along the way and have the flow of the water down as much as you can.

Seems like i found a perfect dual pump / bay combo from Koolance (Koolance RP-452X2 Dual 5.25 Reservoir for 1-2 PMP-450 / S and D5 Pumps (Rev2.0)) seems to be a rather balanced piece though not as good as other cylinder Types of WC set-ups out there, but will keep there insides tidy.

I have looked at Cold zero, The idea of compartmentalising the bottom is sound, as it would direct the air out of the other side of the case and towards the rear, but I would have to get some to cut out holes in it for the Tubing, something i am currently i am unequipped and prepared for tongue.gif, It might be something I would attempt if I ever changed over to Acrylic Hard tubing

Well the preference part of it is where you have moved on to. Having to cut and mod cases can be a seriously daunting task. make a cut you don't like, or decide to go completely contained in the case again at some point, you're stuck with unneeded holes in your case.

As for the pump set up. 1 D5 is quite enough. But i do understand the desire for redundancy. I have 3 radiators and 4 water blocks. the system is whisper quiet and 1 pump is enough. I even have my D5 variable running on speed 4 out of 5 for a little additional dwell time in the radiators. It helps them dissipate a little more heat. With dual D5's in series, you could really run them both at 3 to cut down on noise. Plus this would prolong the life of the pumps.

Modding the Mid plate is definitely out of my skillset, I'll add some addition exhaust fans to the other side to help direct the hot air from the bottom rad out. Agreed 1 D5 is certainly enough as there will be only a few points in the loop where the water in the loop will travel 'up', gravity should shelp with the rest for sure. At least if one pump should fail i will still have use of one and still have fluid moving about the system smile.gif

the RP-452X2 Dual is a nice & good piece of kit.... a bit cumbersome to fill maybe, but good stuff
using the U-bend/pipe allows it to run serial if i remember correctly

However, do try to avoid a 90 degree fitting on the res/pump out.. no need to "choke" the flow that early on smile.gif

Aye, This is probably best for this set-up, the u-bend tube to allow for series operation of the pumps is great!, there two ports on the outside to allow for filling and top to allow the air to escape shouldn't be too problematic to fill the system.

The 90° in the picture is just illustrative, I was thinking more on the lines of 90° Rotary is a little more gentler on the curve something along the lines of this

yes, that 90 degree rotary is actually TWO 45` , good thinking thumb.gif

teaching.gif
One should always use two 45`s vs one 90` .. for the simple reason that the restriction sum of two 45` is actually less as one 90` (street) elbow
Now, in the low flow, short loop systems most of us use, restriction is almost not a problem.. but that doesnt mean we should ignore it ... we already have a lot of 90` angles in our systems (a radiator has at LEAST 3 90` angles, any other block at least 2) ... and it adds up smile.gif

That it does, That monoblock from Ek has about 6 in it for the CPU, pwr Mosfet, and X99 IC.

I can't till this is finally built and running , Which will probably be around april / may frown.gif

Hi All,

Thank you to those that offered advice and assistance during this build, it was appreciated and very welcomed.

After many issues with one of the GPU's and Dealing with EVGA RMA department, I now have a working computer. The results and performance have been absolutely phenomenal.

I've made a few changes with the original design of the loop and 1 of the rads staying as a dual pass Rad (top), and Bottom drain port being changed to the right side of the radiator for logistical / Convenience reasons..

I've attached some photographs of the computer, apologise for the poor lighting. I like dim lighting

The hose leading to the top rad from the Res is running behind the motherboard tray and connect through a couple of swivel x2 45° rotary fittings
















Temps are about 22/25°C Idle, 30/35°C on load depending on ambient room temp with CPU OC to 3.5Ghz and Ram at 2800Mhz
