My first water cooling build!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I told my self when I got into PC building, that Id never do water cooling, then I told my self I'd never go water cooling unless I went all out.. this enough for the first time ever? Heh..



































Cpu Idles at roughly 24-26c

Gpu 1: 34c

Gpu 2: 36c

Specs are in my profile/build-thingy.

try to fix that massive kink at the GPUs, and make sure you have anti-corrosives in your coolant since you use koolance stuffs.

other than that it looks really nice and clean.

Yeah.. I need a elbow for it, they are jsut too close.. but god damn I spent way too long setting that stuff up.

i just spotted a few other ones as well. so if you buy the elbow, id recommend some smartcoils as well...

Nice case/paint job.

Are these mostly koolance components except the pump? What CPU block is that. If you have any copper in your loop, I'd be careful with Galvanic corrosion...... If you have all Aluminum, I guess thats ok?

personally I'm not a fan of the Koolance stuff but I like the 2 pumps. Chiel is right, you gotta do something about those kinks, they really impede the flow. Other than those kinks I'd say you did well for a first build. Next time you re-do your loop I would suggest using less hose. I see a few places where you can shorten and that helps flow as well, albeit a little but every little bit counts.
Good work.

Correct! I woke up next morning, and the slight bends in the lines that went from the top Rad to the Res were gone, I had put some zip-ties in one of the pics on the hose to mark where they were and try and prevent the line from getting worse, I cant see how they made it go away though.. ideas?
