how can i make it look like this

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
i'm collecting the parts for my w/c at the moment. i've had this picture of how i want it to look for a while but i`ve just noticed some thing thats making me think twice.

.

this is my muse for this build but i`ve noticed that the prossesor is not first n the loop.
now ok i dont know it all yet but surly this is counter productive to the efficiency of the set up.

by the looks of things the gpu is first in the loop but that would mean that the liquid is going to the hottest part first and carrying that heat round the loop.

i am all for form over function indeed my whole rig is built with that in mind but you can only go so far before she becomes a trailer queen.

i intend to site my rad like so

and would like to get as close to the top pic as possible the pump will be bottom of the case just to the right of the rad (pictured)

Well, if the rad is in the front, then yes, the GPU looks like its the first, if the rad is in the top then it looks like the gpu is the last or if not almost the last. The NB and (god I can't remember what they are called) other doohickeys up top above the CPU block don't give off tons of heat, so it probably doesn't drain too much on the CPU.

I love the hammered finish of the black. +)

A single loop with all those components would be no better than air cooling Unless you have multiple radiators.

i was hoping to use this thermochill for the cpu+gpu then use a small 120 for the northbridge and VRMs (clinic)


havnt mapped it out yet (think i`ll get the pencil out) but i dont want just any old boring setup asthetics are very important to this build due to the clear case.

lol I was thinking of that picture when I saw the title of this thread.

If you've got plenty of time/patience it's def possible.

no sorry it was just one i'`d found while trawling for pics.
like i say though the issue is the fact that to be worth all the effort i need cpu to be first in the loop.
i`l sit down with a pen and paper tonight an have a think

it looks to me like it goes rad (front of case) vrm-vrm-northbridge-cpu-gpu which to me seams odd. it may go the other way with would just be plain daft.

i suppose vrms and north bridge dont put out much heat an i only have one set on this board so would it be that bad to put vrm+north bridge first?

The vregs put out alot of heat, as does the northbridge (more so on some chipsets than others). I would put them as some of the last things.
