Giving Into Laziness For Now... - Page 3

For the Stinger V8, you'll need to either get a Y-connector to connect the two outlets or get a reservoir with dual inlets.

For tubing, get the Masterkleer 7/16 ID 5/8 OD. 10ft is enough but it doesn't hurt to get more.
You never know when you need more or make a wrong cut.

A Y connector eh? Fair enough. Hmm. That sounds like it's easier to get than a dual inlet reservoir. Duly noted. And thanks foe the tubing. Should I cut with anything in particular or will a knife due? I'd hate to spring a leak and ruin hardware after all of these questions and find out I didn't ask that one. Will this one work: http://www.xoxide.com/12ysplitter.html

Also, all repliers are subject to pay 110% compensation for component malfunction due to my stupidity. Thank you.

Ok, so, here's what I have so far, tell me if I have all of this correct;
  • Stinger Waterblock (Thinking V-8 probably)
  • D5 Pump
  • GTX480 Radiator
  • 4 Yate Loons
  • Possibly a waterbock for my GTS, but I'm not sure how long I'll have it, so maybe not...

I've heard of clamps, Y-connectors, etc being used. Will I need any if I'm only going to have my cpu in the loop? And what of a reservoir? Any random (Probably for me, a 5.25) DD reservoir, or is there better ones than others? (I know... A normal person doesn't have this many questions... But it's your lucky [couple] days ) And... Tubing. I don't know if I read it all right but they all look like 1/2 ID barbs (Unless I overlooked the spec on one of 'em), should I just get like... 10 ft of random tubing? More? Less? And... Is one material/manufacturers tubing better than another?

lol. Just give me stuff to buy...
Alright here we go....
Y connectors: i dont suggest you use them since the reduce flow and create turbulance, if you plan to get a Stinger V8 then get a 3 port bay since the stinger has 1 in and 2 out, your right the one from DD is good. I have gone through 2 swiftech micro res's and they are just too small...i even modded one and mad it into a 3 port res...take a look...

As for claps, you will need a bunch of them, just to secure the tubing on to the barbs and protect your investment LOL...i like and use these type of claps...http://www.dangerden.com/store/produ...&cat=33&page=1
You can get them in black as well.

Tubing: the best is Tygon, at like $3.25 a foot....yup thats alot....but its great at bends and such....what i do is use Masterkler tubing ($0.75 a foot)for the long parts of my loop, then some Tygon for the sharp bends and such....
you can get both here: http://www.petrastechshop.com/tubing.html

You will need a bit more than 10 feet, i would say get 15 feet of the cheap masterkler and about 5 feet of Tygon, after all you will need it in the long run...believe me.

Btw what EVGA 8800 you got? the 320 or 640?

EDIT: you can go with 7/16 or 1/2 tubing, i like the 1/2 since its the biggest you can find for watercooling...and dont use a Y, just get a dual res.....LAZY!!
Do it once...do it right

I just use a pair of scissors to cut the tubing. A knife/razor would work also.

I have used both the y-connector method and two separate outs on the V8 but the conditions were not controlled to the point where I will be reporting any results.
Still looking into getting a good dual-in res.
post #26 of 26
This is the dual in res I have for my V-8...It should give more flow with the back pressure off the re-turn lines..DD has one and Swifty also...
