Pump and rad 6.4mm (1/4”) 9.5mm (3/8”) size

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Ok i kinda of got myself in a problem, after reading on here alot about water cooling i thought i get myself into it also.

I just ordered a few parts from thermaltake, mainly for looks thou, there aquabay range as it make my case more visual looking.

Aquabay M1 flow metre + the Aquabay M3 Res tank.

Now my problems is that these units use 6.4mm (1/4”) 9.5mm (3/8”) pipes.

Now this is ok from what i heard, as i do plan to only cool my CPU but maybe later my GPU also which is a 8800gts.

From reading there is not alot of pumps that run this sizes, so i need some help on getting something that will do this, i dont mind spending money on parts, but its will come one at a time.

The Rad itself i not sure of either, i rather not cut my case yet for a 240, so looking more at a single 120 rad with a good fan on it, i got ok cooling from my 2 x 25cm already.

So what advice can you give me, am i better selling the parts i got, and cutting my loses now, or can i get a half decent system with 6.4mm (1/4”) 9.5mm (3/8”) size.

Cheers.

Ok i uploaded some pics to show you my case, My System. Hopefully may give some ideas to you how i could do this, i think i going to end up selling what i got on the water cooling so far and start a fresh thou, i do want to get it right.

Yeah I would just get rid of it and set up a good loop...If you want to use what you have now and upgrade the pump only get the D-5 it has a rheo on it and you can turn it down to the 2 or 3 setting so that you don't blow something off the rest of the loop..Just get a reducer for the tubing...Then you will have a good pump when you start upgrading....That is one of the bad things about those kind of kits they don't cool well and they are hard to upgrade...



.....D-5

Thanks for the details, hopefully it will give me a good starting point to get into it, i am new to the water side so you lot are my eyes here, thanks for the link for the D5, will plan to order that, just need to sort a Rad now, need something external thou if possible, kinda limitted on space inside right now. Thou i guess i can mount at top, but unsure if that would be best due to the Res tank being lower than the rad.

This would be a good rad for just cpu and gpu...


....Stealth GTS 360

This one is better but costs more..

...360 GTX

Hang it on the back of your case with one of these..

...Rad-Box

You might want to see how much a Thermochill PA.3 is there since they make them there they are really good rads..

Good stuff to read..

Wow nice post there, many thanks, alot of reading more now Just the way i like it thou. Many thanks for the details, will help alot i feel. I not to sure of room but i measured this morning and i may be able to drill out the rivets on the front bays holding my hd and drives and mount a 240 there right infront of my 25cm fan, and then use 2 x 12 on the rad to blow or suck that air in more. May require a fair amount of drilling but i happy with that i feel.

I just not mess up my new case to much, i can also re bolt the cages in front if i mess up to much without to much lose of looks.

I have a read of the links to see whats i can work out, and post back later on.

Many thanks again for your time on reply.
