Too restrictive? to much tubing? Feedback needed!

post #1 of 51
Thread Starter 
Alright just finished up my WC loop and have not fully decided on the CPU block in and out tubing results

Please view the pictures below and let me know what you think!

I am not posting the pictures in thread because they are 1600x1200 and I guess people don't like pictures that big. These links give options of downscaling for those who want.


I appreciate any feedback!

I'm not sure why you need this extra tubing marked with X.

You're D5 can easily handle alot more than that, however.

there is some tubing that you can get rid of, but when the water is put in it really wont matter. the water will still be traveling at the same rate once the pump gets going. set it up the way you like. it looks really nice to me... one thing i can advice you on is make sure the block is on as tight as it can be on the cpu. your results should be great. don't make the mistake i did and put it on loosly i had it like that for a year till i dicided to fidle with it again. i tightened it as tight as i could,being carefull and mindfull of the mobo, and there was a lot of cooling i was missing out on :0)

Alright I cut it down

I figured it wasn't necessary and looks weren't a huge factor

I have it looping towards the gfx card and going up into the block

neone want pics before I add the water?


Btw... i have corrosion blocker... it says 50:1, 50ml treats 2 liters....... I have a gallon, and no graduated cylinder on hand.... how the hell do i get ~50-80ml?

well should I mix inside or outside of the loop?

and what does adding too much do?

Basically straight distilled water gives you the best performance... the more additives you add to your loop the less performance.

So for example if you have a straight copper loop with no aluminum you don't need a corrosion inhibitor, just a algae inhibitor just as Petra's PT Nuke.
