Possible Water Cooling Setup?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
What do you think about this setup? Or should I have the reservoir in the loop instead of the Y connector? **Note** HDD not WCed. I think I have to move the Reservoir Y connector to a lower location.

A few things I can see potentially causing problems are:
- The pump inlet is oriented downward; which can result in the pump running dry during the filling process
- The fill Y is higher than the bottom of the res; the best is to use a T/Y or a res, exceptions would be fill-port reses.

I'd flip the pump right side up, try to keep that pump gravity fed, you can spin it out if you don't...

Move the pump to the back or your case and keep your res a little higher then the pumps intake, that will keep your suction line to the pump flooded...

I'd run it res-pump-rad-cpu-gpu-res...Flip your rad barbs around to however they need to be to keep your tubing lengths as short as you can, if you have to go a little long don't sweat it, just in general keep them as short as you can...

I'm not getting where you want to put a Y at, if you can, keep it all in series, parallel tubing can cause the most restrictive block to get the least flow, the most restrictive is usually your CPU block...It looks like all series, I'm just confused......
