Watercooling Setup

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I haven't been on here in a while. I always used air cooling. I feel that this is the time for a change. I was just wondering what is thought of my setup. Here it is

Pump - Eheim 1250 or D-Tek dB-1
Rad - XSPC RS240
Res - EK 150 Rev 2
Processor Block - D-Tek FuZion
Fans - Evercool (Green) 120mm
Tubes - Tygon 1/2 ID 3/4 OD **is this a good size, or is 3/8 ID 5/8 OD better**
Coolant - Distilled Water, PT Nuke, and Feser (Green) Dye
RadGrill - Kikbox Lightning Bolt

All in interior (except rad) of an Antec p182.

pump you want an mcp655
block looks good
does pt nuke also have an anti-freeze and/or anti-corrosion?

Looks good to me, but like nate said, the MCP-655 (Laing D5) pump would be a better choice.

I would go with the 1/2" tubing.

Cool, thanks. What's wrong with that pump? ='( I was reading this thing online that the AquaXtreme Z507 was really good. Second best to the D5 Vario. Is that true?

I would use the 3/8 tygon tubing. You wont lose any flow because the ID of a 1/2" hi flow fitting is only 3/8", and the fit is much tighter. I had a friend with 1/2" tygon, when disassembling his system, pulling slightly sideways on the tubing actually made it leak some coolant onto the CPU block, I was also able to pull off every tube with the zipties still on. With my 3/8" I can run my system 24/7 and never worry about a leak without any clamps but I use zipties to be on the extra safe side. I have 2 friends running no clamps/zipties with 3/8 tygon.

don't run 3/8", that's what 7/16"ID masterkleer is for on 1/2" barbs....

You can run 1/2" tubing on 1/2" barbs 24/7 and not worry too.... just gotta use automotive clamps (but you should with anything regardless of what tubing size)

I would go for the D5 vario too, #1 in my book for performance, price, reliability. #2 would probably be the DDC just because it's a bit less reliable.

I think it may actually be 7/16", I've seen it advertised as both, either way it's a 1/16" difference, big deal.

Ok, I've had a lot of conflicts with picking the tube size, so thanks. And what exactly is wrong with the Eheim 1250 pump. Link --> http://www.performance-pcs.com/catal...oducts_id=2741

If you compare the PQ curves and the heat dump you see that the Eheim is not the better of the two. Maybe more reliable, but the mcp655 is pretty reliable itself.

The Eheim only has about half as much head as a D-5 vario...Head is what you need when you have back pressure on the pump,you'll get more flow with the D-5...Another perk is the D-5 is DC powered and will come on and turn off with your comp...The Eheim is AC, you can always use a relay or a plug strip but its just an extra thing you would need to do....
