Could use sugestions to build my first loop

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, been a lurker for a while, whenever i had issues or wanted to learn about something i'd come here to read about how to get my problem solved, but since im in a bind i decided to create an account to ask for advice from people with experience in a more interactive fashion, so... Thanks for having me smile.gif


So the deal is the following:

I just got the GTX 1070 FE and i plan to start my very first custom loop project in 1 or 2 months to cool it down. The reasons being:
1) I have a NZXT H440 case wich is basicly an oven and i like things running cool;
2) I've allways been very curious and fascinated about the watercooling scene since i've first heard about it, like 15 years ago...
3) I feel its the step i never took being a pc enthusiast;
4) I dont expect huge performance gains, i just want to do it for the experience mostly and to keep things running cool.
5) I live in Portugal, where it gets really hot in the summer, and having 30ºC ambient temperature inside your house is a common thing.

I've allways been kinda affraid of ruining my hardware trying to do something i've never had real contact with before, affraid of leaks and whatnot, so here i am!


My plan:
I plan to start with a simple GPU loop, i haven't seen many of those arround the web, they usually include the CPU in it, but since i have a corsair H100i GTX for my processor, and in order to start out in a simple fashion, and maybe later when i get confortable (and have extra cash) i'll expand it and get rid of the AIO.

I also plan to start with the components easiest and safest to use, reservoir-pump combos, soft tubing, compression fittings (from what i heard they are the most reliable). There are many stores that could do this for me, but i'd like to do the assembly and the build myself.


My questions:

From what i've seen in youtube videos, reddits and forums people usually advise generaly to get a 240mm rad for each component overclocked, is this your advice aswell?

Where the heck would i mount my reservoir/pump in my case?

Is a watercooled PC still portable? Will i still be able to carry my PC back home on vacations without being paranoid of leaks?

Wich brands are the most reliable in your opinion?

Do you guys recommend using special fluids? What dyes should i avoid?I've heard very naughty things about red dyes...

What materials should i be looking to use on the blocks/radiators? Is copper the way to go?

Can a 360 rad handle GPU + CPU if i expand down the line?

If anyone has a watercooled system using the same case i am, i'd really appreciate if you could share tips/pics of your layout and how it improved your temperatures!


My specs:
i5 6600k @ 4.5Ghz - 1.32v
GTX 1070 FE
NZXT H440 case
Corsair RM750i power supply
Asus Z170-A motherboard

Any input is welcome, even if it's not related to my questions! I'm sure i'll have more down the line, but i just can't remember any more right now.
Thank you for reading this.thumb.gif

From what i've seen in youtube videos, reddits and forums people usually advise generaly to get a 240mm rad for each component overclocked, is this your advice aswell? If you are wanting to keep fan noise and temps low then I think that 240mm per components is a decent place to be. It obviously doesn't have to be 240mmx120mm rads, but the surface area is what you are shooting for. I overkilled it a little and did 240mm per component + 280mm and I'm loving it thumb.gif

Where the heck would i mount my reservoir/pump in my case? I'd have to look specifically but a lot of pump/res have mounts that will fit to 120mm fans. There may be a spot built in to the h440 but you could always make one with a drill/dremel and a bit of time as well. Lots of pumps will mount easily on the floor and most res's will have available mounts to mount to a "wall" easily. It will vary depending on what parts you decide to use smile.gif

Is a watercooled PC still portable? Will i still be able to carry my PC back home on vacations without being paranoid of leaks? I have never really tried moving my pc more than an few feet while full and I'd definitely recommend draining it and air testing for leaks before refilling. Check out this thread for more info on air testing http://www.overclock.net/t/1534282/how-to-correctly-leak-test-your-loop-101/370#post_25250520

Wich brands are the most reliable in your opinion? EK, XSPC, Aquacomputer, Bitspower, HW labs are all pretty great and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them (HW labs has some very restrictive rads though). I like Alphacool's rads but not their blocks so much and I generally stay away form koolance although their Quick Dis-Connects (QDC) are hard to beat if they're needed. Avoid Thermaltake's watercooling products, they still make aluminum radiators and obviously have no idea what is going on haha

Do you guys recommend using special fluids? What dyes should i avoid?I've heard very naughty things about red dyes... I use distilled water and Mayhem's extreme biocide unless I'm going for a specific look. Mayhem's has a lot of different coolants and they're all very high quality. It seems like xt-1 isn't the best choice of theirs anymore (ESPECIALLY for PETG tubing) but the dyes, X-1 and Pastel lines are fantastic all around. The dyes are available in non-staining which should help keep your blocks cleanable but I've never had an issues with x-1 or aurora staining anything. Aurora is sweet but can be a pain to keep it going, although some people have reported success. Some people have reported issues with pastel changing colors over time, I'm not sure if that cause was ever nailed down but I believe some of it was caused by cleanliness or lack thereof. Mayhem's recommends their Blitz kit (part 1 in the rads ONLY and part 2 through entire system and then flushed/rinsed well) but I've personally never used it. Sorry if that came off like a Mayhem's advertisement!


What materials should i be looking to use on the blocks/radiators? Is copper the way to go? Copper as a base material is definitely the way to go, avoid aluminum like its the plague skull.gif It'll cause corrosion like crazy. Nickle plating is fine for blocks and its really more of an appearance preference. Some brands used to have issues with nickle flaking off but I haven't heard anything like that in a while. If you plan on using any liquid metal thermal interface material then I'd go with nickel since it seems to play a bit nicer with that type of TIM

Can a 360 rad handle GPU + CPU if i expand down the line? It will handle it, but it will require more airflow/noise to keep temps decent and thing may get a bit warmer than you'd like depending on your preferences. Also a 60mm thick rad will dissapate more heat than a 30mm thick rad, but no-where near 2x as much and it depends on the airflow, fins per inch and many other factors as well. The review sites should help you make sense of this ( http://www.xtremerigs.net/2015/02/11/radiator-round-2015/5/ )

If anyone has a watercooled system using the same case i am, i'd really appreciate if you could share tips/pics of your layout and how it improved your temperatures! I've never used this case myself but check out the H-series club if you haven't already! http://www.overclock.net/t/1430677/the-nzxt-h-series-club-h630-h440-h230/1580#post_22319286 (links to a NICE 440 with full custom loop)


Great review sites for comparing rads, pump tops, blocks, fans and more

I found the perfect video for you. This is the YouTube series that got me started on watercooling:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9bv_Afthmw8

He's actually doing a build in your case in this video.

For tubing if you don't mind black I would use EK ZMT for zero maintenance, if your going with soft tubing.

Good luck and have fun. thumb.gif

What's your budget for water cooling?

I would suggest a kit plus GPU block and extra fittings. I know you said start wit GPU only but it would probably be cheaper and easier in the long run to do both at the same time. A 360 kit would be good enough to get you started and then you can add to the loop down the road as needed.

Remember that water cooling isn't going to give you better temps than ambient. If your ambient is 30c then the very best temps you can get at idle are 30c with hopefully ~10C delta. But you can get better temps than air especially in a higher ambient environment.

Wow, thanks everyone for your helpfull and quick answers!

@ 0ldChicken - I see now what you mean with the mounting brackets for 120mm fans. Thanks alot for taking time to answer all my questions and providing usefull links!

@ Newtocooling - Thanks alot for the youtube link, i can now rule out some radiator thickness sizes after watching the guy doing that build!

@ Radnad - I was thinking about that myself! Actually it might even be cheaper than picking myself all the parts after doing some planning trying to pick every part from the store im planning to buy from. In regards to budget, i was planning to spend arround 300-400Euro with the simple gpu loop, nothing too fancy or complicated, since i have no experience whatsoever building a custom loop. I dont want to cheap out on components though and get something like bad quality fittings that may go bad. Minimalistic, practical and safe is what i was aiming at - function above form to start with. tongue.gif

with that high ambient, youre either going to have to ditch your case or mod it for more airflow. its built for silence not water cooling.
i wish nzxt would go back to using words not letters. h = hush = silence

yeah no problem! thumb.gif
The kits are a great way to get started imo! (good call Radnad) That was my first move and things got out of control from there but I am still using most of it. EK has good kits made of quality parts, although personally I would spend the few bucks extra and get the version with the d5 pump. Every major brand has at least one and they're powerful enough for most any loop and reliable.

If I needed a 360 kit today this would be the one I would get. Add your GPU block and a couple of extra fittings and your off to the races.

well I have three water cooled systems.
1 has 1 360mm radiator cooling a CPU and a GPU at stock speeds this system runs a little hot at load with a 10C delta T the CPU runs at load up to 45C the GPU runs at 55C.
2 has 2 X 240mm radiators cooling a CPU and a GPU at stock speeds this system runs at load, at a acceptable cooling rate with a 7C delta T the CPU runs at load up to 42C and the GPU runs at 52C
3 has 3 X 360mm radiators cooling a CPU and two GPU's all clocked this system runs really well at load, with a 1C delta T. the CPU at load runs at 51C and the GPU's run at 49C.
for the first system I planning on adding a second 360mm radiator to that system to keep the system a little cooler.
the second system runs fine at stock speeds, but I can not overclock any of the hardware without heating up the entire system.
the third system runs well even with slight clocks on the hardware. my CPU on this system is a 3930K at 4Ghz stock is 3.2Ghz, and my GPU's are GTX580's at 850Mhz stock is at 772Mhz.
I would not say that any of these systems are moveable, I don't move them because the systems are heavy.
as for brands I would recommend bitspower for all of the fittings.
swiftech, alphacool, aquacomputers, NZXT, and XSPC for radiators
swiftech, bitspower, aquacomputers, and XSPC for water blocks
tubing I like norprene thick wall 3/8 ID 5/8OD.
I like tube reservoirs
swiftech D5 pumps are all I own.
koolance makes some of the best water cooling accessories Example, flow meters, radiator mounts, PCI pass troughs, and even leak detectors.
I use antifreeze, but I would stay away from any kind of dye.
I live in AZ so my average temp in my home is 30C, 9 months out of the year
if you would like some pics of my systems let me know.
I hope this helps you to under stand how well water cooling works
