[Build Log] + Design ideas required.

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey guys!! First off here my equipment and everything iv ordered. At a later date i want to add two 1080s (or better) gpus to system 1 and move the 780ti to system 2 so i am piping to prepare for that. (16mm acrylic)

Chassis:Lian Li Dk-02x (dual system)
System 1

Mobo: Asus Rampage IV black Edtition
CPU: i7 4930k
Ram: Kingston beast 2x 32gb kits
PSU: Corsair HX1000i
GPU:780ti

System 2
Corsair vengance lpx 8gb x2
I3-6100 x1
Asus b150l pro gaming lga 1151 x1
Lg slim blu-ray x1
Crucial 240gb ssd x1
Seagate barracuda 2tb x1
Corsair Hxi750

Water cooling purchase from ekwb
Ekwb 780ti water cool block x1
EKWB supremacy evo RED x2
EKWB RES X3 400 x2
EKWB xres 100 REVO D5 (pump/res) x2
EKWB hdc 16mm fittings Red x4
EKWB 16mm fittings Black x20
EKWB coolstream RADIATOR XE 240 X2
EKWB HD Tube 16mm 500mm (2 pcs) x 6
EKWB Ram Monarch x4 acetal + Nickel x2
EKWB Ram Monarch module black (2pcs) x4
Ekwb red coolant 1 liter x3

Extras
Artic silver 3.5 grams
Cablemod C- Series HXi Red x2
Cablemod cmb kit C-Series x3

So my questions are basicly layout check and efficient cooling from the two 240 rads. Then confirm Flow rates required.

I can add two 120mm rads to the loop as seen below in my plan atm.

I do also have a chilled water bath ready to go which i can set up to chill the water down to approx 4 degrees Celsius but was hoping to keep the complete unit contained

My plan at the moment is to go clockwise around (instead of like in the photos) XE240mm Rad,d5pump+res,XE240MM Rad, 400 res, system 2 gpu,cpu, SE120mm Rad,d5pump+res, Se120mm Rad, system 1 gpu, gpu, ram, cpu, ram, 400 res.

Otherwise i will track the usual way and try cool the coolest running first. Hope this isnt too confusing.

The order of the loop doesn't matter. The water coming out of your radiator will be the coolest but will only differ by a degree or two. All the water in the loop will be a similar temperature.

Yup. With the kind of flow rates you have in PC water cooling, the water doesn't stick around in any block long enough to heat up much, nor in any rad long enough to cool down much. It's a continuous flow thing. It heats up a little, then cools a little, heats up a little more, cools a little more. Eventually you will reach a stable equilibrium where it is cooling as fast as it heats. For my system it's between 36 and 41 C, (water temp) depending on what I'm doing.

Thankyou! My first idea was one unit one after another but a few people i know who dont know much about water cooling said i was crazy... haha. They thought it work like a fridge but.. anyhow. Thanks you. Watch this space. smile.gif worse case scenario ill just have to re-run the tubes.

otherwise looks pretty good so far

@Echoa Yup 100% asthetics. Cost of parts in New Zealand i was quoted just shy of $4000 for all the kit. Less than 1500 through ek direct so thought why not. Makes the build more fun.

Iv had to change plans tho because tge 400mm res wont fit between gpu and fan sadly. (I got the bigger rad and forgot it was already tight).

They seem to fit beside the mini though so that works just means no i need to move where the pumps are going to the two front corners. Just acouple less hdd bays. Should be fine
