Watercooling - Phanteks Evolv ATX

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've finally managed to get most of the parts needed for my build.

What i have now is as follows.
Clean

With Planned Pump & Res Location


This is to cool a GTX1080 + i5-6600K on a Asrock Z170 Extreme 6.

I do know that it is pretty tight, the build would be based on 16OD 12ID hard tubing.

I'm currently planning to get the pump suspended in the middle of the case where the res's Inlet would be above my GPU, while the Outlet would be below the GPU.

So the cooling hardware I have is as follows:-
1. EK D5 X-Top - Connected via Male to Male with the Reservoir
2. Aquatube Delrin Reservoir (Looking for other options, got this at a discount)
3. EK CoolStream CE 280 Dual Radiator - Located up front, Ports on Bottom
4. EK CoolStream PE 360 Triple Radiator - Located up top- Ports on Back of Casing
5. EK Supremacy EVO - Self explanatory
6. EK 1080 TF6 - Self explanatory

I'm willing to do some mods, but would like to know if i should plan my loop as follows:-

Pump->280RAD->GPU->360RAD(Inlet nearer to Window)->CPU->Res/Pump

I'm not sure if this is doable with such a tight case, but i know it'll be a challenge for me to bend the tubes to the front rad with the 6CM clearance i have (before modding).

Also thinking if i should bend the tube so it comes out of the protector right next to the "Phanteks" wording.

Do let me know what i could do to make it better.

I am also in need of a drain port, which i'm currently unsure where i could put it. I was thinking of having it right next to the 280RAD's inlet via a T Port, but i'm not sure of which fittings i should be using.

Thanks in Advance!!!

Pump>280>GPU>CPU>360>Res would be a much cleaner looking run and would have no affect on performance.
