Take a look at my component setup. PIC!!

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Here is a picture of where I have my components situated. I'm just trying to figure out the best way to run my tubing. I'm thinking of the these two possible scenarios, opinions welcome.

:Res > Pump > GTX360 > CPU > GTX240 > GPU > Res

This way seems to suggest the best temps for my two blocks but also means a little more tubing. The other thought I had was:

:Res > Pump > GTX360 > CPU > GPU > GTX240 > Res

This way uses less tubing but the GPU will get hotter water than if it went through the GTX240 first.


I'm unsure what to do, suggestions?

If you have the barbs towards the back of the case its gonna get REALLY tight near the CPU area.
All the builds i've done in Cosmos S' i've put the barbs at the front with the bay res in the 4th drive bay.

I personally wouldn't put the pump on the PSU, the idea of it leaking and blowin up doesn't appeal to me!

You might have already seen it but this is one i've just finished doing:

The problem is that if I put the barbs towards the front of the case (and believe me I've thought about this for a while and done measurements) is that I won't be able to put my GTX240 anywhere then.

I guess I'm gonna have to just sell the GTX240 and just go with the 360 since there is no one interested in talking me out of it.

If you don't mind sacrificing a pci slot or two, you can mount one of the rads on the outside on a swifty radbox so that it is in the ambient air, which is cooler than in the case. I think you'll be fine using 2 rads if they're the GTXs. Until I get my case from Syrillian, I have my loop set up like this.

Bay res>D-tek db-1 pump>mcr220 #1>cpu>gpu>mcr220 #2>res

And the d-tek isn't as powerful as your pump, so if it can handle it, yours sure can. Go for it

Having another rad in there should help lower your idle to load delta as well.

I know I can mount on the back but the whole point in me getting this case to begin with was to mount everything internally. I really don't have the space behind where my computer will be for there to be a rad back there.
