Component Opinions & Pump Mounting

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi Everyone,

Well, I had planned on modding out a Nautilus 500 with a different block and radiator, but, after totaling up the costs I wound up not opening the packages and sent them back.The bill was slightly over $240. So, it had come to the point where excitement overrode better judgment

Here's what I'm looking at purchasing due to it being squarely in my price range, which will only have the task of keeping a Q6600 in check.

http://www.petrastechshop.com/pecoel.html

I can mix and match all components., my concern (since I've never water cooled before) is picking the optimal parts for that price range, while keeping the build *simple* I'll be adding in some high flow nickel plated fittings for the rad(nylon is unsettling)

Now, for the pump mounting, I found this build that I plan to mimic, since I want everything external. http://www.ocforums.com/showthread.php?t=519263

With the pump in that position, will the Laing DDC-3.2 Pump accommodate that position?(if not, just let me know which one will) While reading up on this, I've come across threads where folks have said having it mounted in such a position is not good for the pump and will cut it's life short. Speaking of that, I don't want a pump that has a history of being unreliable, I'm not a gambling man

I'm open to all suggestions,

Thank You,

Flinch

I would change it from what the picture looks like... You are better off having the res drain into the in on the pump with the out to the rad. Make yourself a shroud and pull the air through the rad.

I'm partial to the D5 pump myself it's what I use.

Wait so your getting a Q6600? If so, i doubt that kit can keep up with the heat of the Q6600...

the swiftech MCW60R with the 8800GTX bracet is the best flow, value and performance for your GPU.

I tried the full card cooler on my 8800gtx and big waiste of money and costly.

The swifty will do right as a cooler and in the wallet. don't forget to buy the ram sinks and mosfet sinks to cool them, they are inexpensive.

Yeah I would keep the res right before the pump and higher then the pump so it will be gravity fed, less chance for dry starts....


The new 18W DDC's aren't as high peformance as the older one's were..I'd just go with a D-5 to they are really good reliable pumps..If you do go DDC it would work fine in that position....

That is a really clean installation. I think that person did a good job.

The only major changes that I would make would be to place the reservoir higher up. If at all possible I would have the fill-point be the highest point in the loop. Secondly I would probably have the loop order different. He/She has the radiator output going to the reservoir as opposed to the core. It might make a temp difference of 1 degree or 2, but with the mid 30's ambient that I get during the Summer I need every bit of help (Res > Pump > Rad > Block > Res). I also have air blowing over the res and the pump...just my

oopsies (corrected)...order is wrong..like this



I think that the pump that you have chosen will sit similarly without a hitch as there is the 90 degree angle of difference between the intake and the output. I make that statement in the assuption that the verticle nipple is the output.

Thanks everyone..

ReCoiL, cooling the gpu will have to wait, I have enough fear with just the cpu block.

ThePope, that kit will not be able to keep that cpu under control? by *under control* I mean in under 60c @ load with ambient temps of 70F with a modest 3.0 OC.

So, now the question is whether or not that kit will accomodate the cpu in relation to my expectations, if not, then I surely won't be ordering it.

Edit: Forgot to mention, I'll be using my Antec 900, which has the 200mm blowing up and underneath the rad along with the 2x120 fans connected to the rad.

The parts in that kit should work fine with one of these type of Quads

Well, that sure blows my budget I guess I'll be using the heatsink in my sig tomorrow when I install it and go from there.

I'll be back to post my temps from priming all cores.

Thanks guys
