noob needs Help with setting up watercooling loop *low bandwith beware*

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
well i went out and built a new rig recently started out with buying a antec 1200 and was going to stay air cooled but i recently decided to try out watercooling. I picked up the danger den 4101 kit universal northbridge cooler, and fillport. the kit came with pretty much no instructions and i kinda just pieced the loop together. i'm thinking my rad is out of place in the loop here are some pictures of my loop atm
right now i have the loop setup as Pump < cpu < northbridge < res < rad < T line back to the pump .. should i have it setup as pump < rad < cpu < nb < res < t line , pump ? i'm also thinking about buying the GPU block from danger den for my 9800 gtx

does lapping the cpu help with watercooling?

as you stated.....go from pump > rad > cpu > nb > res > pump

If you have a res....why do you have a t-line or vice versa....pick one, take the other out.

Your better off NOT using elbows btw.

i put the T line in because the stupid res the 4101 kit came with is a bay res that slides in the front so it's hard to fill and get rid of air bubbles. The T was much easier to fill the system with coolant and let the pressure out specially once the bays were filled. So i can drop the res and just run off the T line ?? and i kinda needed the elbows for space reasons in my case when i didn't have them the tubing had to much flex in it =/

The restriction of elbows is like adding an extra foot of tubing per elbow, which is bad. If you have really tight bends you should you Tygon or use some smart coils prevent kinks.

alright. i'm actually in the process of draining the coolant out now to remove the elbows. thanks for the speedy replies.. also once you drain the coolent out is it possible to reuse it? the container i'm draining it into is clean

Yes you can take the res out and just use a t-line

Personally I don't trust a "clean" container but there's nothing wrong with reuse. I would carefully inspect the fluid for hairs/lint/anything else to make sure it didnt end up in the loop.

I personally would keep the T-Line there as it'll be very practical for draining your loop in the future I had both a res and a T-line in my old WC computer. Using both their pros to counter their cons

T-line: Slow for bleeding, Quick for draining.

Res: Quick for bleeding, Slow for draining.

Having both in a loop equals fast draining and bleeding

It looks like your using Tygon.....a good brand name, 3/4 OD? you can flex that stuff pretty good....check out the pic.....thats a dual cpu loop all in that little space with 1/2id 3/4od tygon tubing. Those hose clamps your using can come in handy if you get a kink. You can use them to put pressure on the outside edges of the kink to round it.
