My first Custom Watercooling Loop - follow/advise - Page 3

soooooo Coolermaster gel nano huh???

well I just changed the TIM on my setup prior to "the operation" and its good.... at first glance it seems to be a smidge cooler than the AS5 and the AS5 took a few days to "cook in" so i'm impressed.

as I have used AS5 for so long I'm still kinda hoping the c/m gel nano is gonna do the same but it prob wont from what I have read. Last time I did the AS5 (couple months ago) it dropped 10 deg over those cook in days.

Until I make my brackets to mount the rad I'm using this dense foam like material



And leaving room for my drain plug of course

And I hate air filtration so I ripped out (literally) the side meshes too

These were cheap but are real quality built

95cfm!

I'll have them pull I think
I'll use the ID cooling fans for the front/push
That way I also don't have the front stuck in white when I change the leds to one of the 16 other colours there is
Lol





Those inner pieces are cold hard steel smile.gif

I just had a great idea
The cooler master stacker storm

I have a cm stacker 810 case as well
Same dimensions
I'll cut it to use the bottom section, mount that under the storm Stryker for the water cooling etc

Not much difference between the old and the new huh?
Lol

Give it credit though... 3570k @ 4800mhz 1.40v (under load prime) 90deg

But it's winter here... Damned if I'll take a lesser oc in summer!! Haha

Is that ok with all those linkages on the out going pump?
Male to male
Cut-off water link thingy (to stop drain-back)
Compression fitting

??????

Or shorten the tube, go straight up, and go back to a single compression fitting?




Oh and here's the rest of it so far-
Pick the hell out of it please

A valve to stop drain-back? You don't need that. Use the valve for your general drain.

So yes, take out the valve, shorten the tube and go straight up to the radiator. Will look a whole lot cleaner than the crossing tubes you got now.

Yes, you dont need to worry about drain back. Put a splitter on that outlet and use the valve as a drain, and go straight up with the tubing from the splitter to the rad as mentioned. Also maybe try to find some way to raise that pump/res up even the GPU so you don't have the tube crossing it. That GPU might add extra heat to that tube and coolant that you don't want. Or get a multi port top for that res so you can feed back into the top instead all the way at the bottom.

It's funny.. Just been sitting here chillin and looking at it and I'm liking the crossover a little..
Besides my gfx card means that straight up ain't gonna be very straight anyway... If both cards were the length of the shorter one it would look real clean

If you like the way it looks, keep it that way. Its your build after all. But I would still move the valve to a different location as drain-back shouldn't be an issue.

Sorry rad I missed ur comment before.. Stupid phone lol

Ur right about the gpu heat I guess. But I'm either benchmarking CPU mobo ram more than gfx and when gaming the CPU will never overheat based on that
I don't understand the multi port bit I'm sorry

I will get rid of the valve
I only had a couple diff fittings cause was gonna use em for my drain on rad but they don't work in the space I have so I'll go swap em today
All compression fittings I ever buy again will be these 90deg with a swivel multi angle things that's for sure
