WC setup for a Xeon X3210 build - Page 2

I set my other pumps to full blast the day I got them and have not looked back.
Q- Then why bother with the D5? Your not going to adjust it and it's such a 'big' pump...seems a regular DDC-12v would do for just fine, take up a little less space and still give good pressure to the CPU block.

Also, if you were going to add any thing to the loop at a later date, I think it would be wise to get a larger radiator. A Q4 plus a hot GPU, would overload my BIX2, to past comfortable temps...especially with summer around the corner.

and yup GTS= GT Stealth
Nice use of a radbox. I'll probably have mine blowing from right to left while looking at the case. That'll clear the hot air the most quickly given the proximity of other rigs. I should really get around to taking some pictures of my setup one of these days.

The first setup I bought came as a premodded case; the second was a prepacked Swiftech. My starting point is what I know, and I'm going from there.

I have a quad rad already in my gaming rig (block on the GPU as well). My other systems are solely for folding, so I can't imagine I'll add anything else to the loop. The dual rad in one of my folding rigs seems to do very well (though it is on a killer OCing CPU), but I imagine the quad core this is going on will turn out a lot more heat. I'm thinking a 360 mm rad is probably in order. It's just a matter of if the investment in a GTS is worth it over a Swiftech (or if something else is the way to go).

Where do you think the sweet spot is in priceerformance among those rads?

Just FYI, the only things I have at the moment are the fans (well, on the way), some tubing, and some coolant. I'll need to supplement the tubing and coolant for this build, and everything else is still up for grabs.

Due to the configuration of my various systems, I'm thinking to have the rad on top of the case on its side. I should also build a drain line into the system. Draining is about my least favorite thing to do with WC, and I'm sure a drain would be inexpensive and very helpful.
Yeah a GTS is the GT Stealth...I think I would go with a 360..You can hang it on the back of your case on a rad-box and it would be out in the cooler room ambient air also..I'll leave you a pic of mine with a 240 BIX on it...I cut a piece of bleach jug and painted it black then made a half circle with it over the PSU exhaust ....That way it wont get sucked through the rad...The rad-box has a baffle in it to keep the rear fan exhaust from being drawn through the rad also..

Rad-Box

Yeah a drain-line is nice...I cut mine into the lowest line with about a foot of tubing on it and topped it with a brass Fil-Port...Works great...I'll leave a pic it's hanging off my rad-box...Makes flushing and refills very easy...I wouldn't have a loop with out a drain anymore...DD has some brass plugs that would work great to cap one off to..

and i agree.....i have a MCR320 and its not good at all, my 480GTX kills its, but i cant compare....i would say go with the GTS or even get a 480GTX and hook it up to your other pcs...that sucker will cool them with ease

Rad_Shot_

...
Thanks for the continued advice. Unfortunately, my desk is too shallow to make use of a rad box. It's a corner desk - on the right side I have a full tower with an internal quad rad, the left side has an external dual rad standing on the desk. The system being discussed here is just off the left side of the desk, sitting on top of another case. A picture would really be worth 1000 words here, but it's late.

Anyway, the only real place I can put the rad is on top of the case, so I'm pretty much stuck with that. I just can't get myself to drill holes in a Lian Li anyway. With my luck, I'd end up mangling it.

I'll definitely have to take a look at using a fillport as a drain plug. I wouldn't mind working those into my other systems next time I drain them as well.

Hrm...I have a MCR220 cooling an E6600, and it does a great job. The more I play with C2Ds, the more I realize that it just a very sweet CPU (low voltage/low temp). I don't think I can justify dishing out the cash for a GTX, but I can definitely see a GTS in my future.

If you are going to mount on top think about using something for a spacer that you could velcro on...DD has some industrial strength velcro that really holds well....Maybe just some aluminum square tubing painted to match your case and velcro it on...You can always peel it off with out hurting the finish of your case.. Attach the tubing to the rad with screws...Cap the ends with something to make it look finished...My local Sutherlands has a variety of aluminum channel and tubing maybe you can find some locally if not this link has a lot of good stuff...Now on tubing and such you would just want to buy the pre-cut lengths....But if you want to buy copper or something in shorter lengths the a running foot on the cut section type in the length and left click your mouse and you can get the price of shorter lengths with out going all the way to check out to see it....

I updated the list in the first post to reflect the discussion to date. I still need to settle on a pump supplier and find a shroud I like (I'll probably just buy one - not much free time to build one). Other than that, I seem prett well set. Any other thoughts before I order?
