Ideal WC Setup (Lian-Li PC60 case) - Page 2

post #11 of 65
If you use a Swiftech rad-box to mount your radiator on the back you should be ok. I believe that they are compatible with both 120 and 80mm fan holes. The thermochill will be better, and you really need to get the fuzion block. It IS leagues better than everything but the Stinger V8.

A T-line is easier to fill and bleeds out bubbles better, but causes some flow problems. A reservoir drains easier and looks cooler, but makes bleeding bubbles a little awkward and takes up extra fluid.

Rad box should fit 80mm fan slots as well as anything 120mm and below.
It would probably be cheaper (if you have the tools) just to mount it on the top using some tall screws or stand offs to elevate it off the case an inch or two (know what i mean?).

Oh, and the DDC comes in one speed, the D5 is the variable or not variable one

Also, sorry I missed you on xfire earlier, I was asleep for a while then watched some game on tv. . . I think it's called "foot bull" or something weird like that. Anyone here heard of it?

Nice, I was really leaning towards the top mounted rad after talking to you, lol! Anyways, a radbox will work on 80mm fan holes, so will I even need a radbox, or just four standoffs (one on each corner) to elevate the rad with? Best materials for that job (pvc, brass, other)?

Trendy recommended the DDC (non-variable) I believe, and I've heard other people being talked out of it in favor of the variable speed one. Something about the non variable running at a "4" setting while the variable one can run faster...will I even need that for a CPU-only loop? Or is it just nice to have in case of future expandability?

I think it might have a possibility of fitting internally on the roof, provided the 5.25" bay rack is removed completely. I'm not sure about the lateral clearance though (side to side), though if positioned properly, the line from the rad to the cpu block will be very short. I'll get the dimensions and do some measurements for ya.

DDC is this pump:



No speed dial.

The D5 is the one that has a non-variable and variable version. The non-variable D5 is "stuck at 4/5" in a sense. Anywho, I recommended the DDC because space constraints inside your case.

This is the D5:




Second picture shows the red speed-dial.

How big, exactly, is the D5? I'm hopeful I can fit that in the lower front portion of the case, I'll need to take measurements when I have time tomorrow.

That's very very similar to my case, except I don't have 120mm fans like in that one, I've got two 80mm in the front there, and where that 120mm is in the back, I've got just an 80mm. I'll probably do a top mounted one, and I think that D5 variable *will* fit into my case, which is good news. But do I need the variability for a cpu only loop? Or will I be on the "4" setting anyways, so I save myself the money and go with the DDC?

For a CPU only loop, the non-variable D5 would be just fine, but I would go with the regular D5 just in case you want to upgrade down the road.
