Pump and fittings help (I think that's all I need lol!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
This is my first build that I'm going to be fully watercooling and this is the first pc I've built in years, I got most of the stuff already picked out http://pcpartpicker.com/list/7kqKqk What I'm having trouble with is finding a D5 pump that is a variable speed pump(all the ones I've found don't specify if they are or aren't.) and not sure what fittings to get or how many I'll need, if anyone could help me get the rest of this together and any input on something I could switch up please any help would be greatly appreciated, I really want this build to last me a long time which is why I'm going a little overkill on it, but I want to be happy in the end and this is what I got so far lol.

Rigid tubing for your first time water cooling is pretty courageous, be patient and get plenty of the tubing so you can make some mistakes.

Now your fittings highly depend on what kind of rigid loop you want to do. Are you planning to bend your tubes or use straight sections with angled fittings?

As for the pump, just get a PWM Controlled D5, the one from EK is great.

I got heat gun already I'm going to try to bend the tubes, I'm going to try to make the loop too complicated, I'm going to have the pump/res combo mounted in the main compartment. i like the look of rigid tubing and i like a challenge smile.gif which EK pump are you talking about, if you could drop a link that would be awesome and is it a variable speed one.

This one should be good:

I'll get back to you on the fittings tomorrow if no one else joins in, or you could ask in the water cooling club. But I really need to get some sleep now. tongue.gif

If I were to buy all new fittings tomorrow, (and I might for my Skylake build that's almost done), I would go with the new Monsoon EV2's. They can even be laser etched with an image of your choice! Other than those, my sig rig has Barrow's fittings and I love them, great quality and one of the best prices. You will need 2 fittings per component if your bending tubing, so count the radiators, blocks, and add the pump/res and multiply by 2.

damn thats gonna be a lot, i know im doing rigid compression fittings but not sure if i need 45's or 90's, and im gonna need to valve bits for draining both loops, still working how im going to route both of them
post #7 of 18
You shouldnt need angled fittings if your bending your own tube. Angled fittings are usually for soft tubing or using elbows on the turns of rigid tubing. Fittings can be the single most expensive part of a custom loop, just the way it is. Buying the EV2's in 12 packs puts them under $5 a pop, can't get much cheaper than that.

I'd get a couple 90's anyway, they can be helpful for certain runs, even with bend rigid tubing.

I'd try to sketch out your loop beforehand , that would probably give you a better idea of whether you'll need any angled fittings and might help with the drain location.

Make sure you get PETG tubing and not Acrylic.  

 

Jays2cents on youtube has some good videos on hard tubing builds that could help you.

 

 

And that build looks sexy.  Wish i could afford something like that lol. 

 

Your memory is 2400 cas 14, im pretty sure you can get the same brand memory but like 2400 cas 10 which is like 260 dollars.

i switched from the corsair to that new avexir plasma filled ram, going to go for a clear UV Blue theme Ram im not too picky about, what im using the pc for faster ram wont show any noticeable performance gains
