Proposed WC Setup

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
10 x Tygon R-3603 1/2" ID 3/4" OD Chemical Tubing (per foot)
15 x EK Waterblocks - 1/2" ID fitting G3/8
8 x PrimoChill Anti-Kink Coils 1/2"- Black
20 x Plastic Tubing Clamps - Black
Dangerden Fillport - Silver
Swiftech MCRES-Micro Res
Swiftech MCP655â„¢ 12 VDC Pump
Swiftech MCR320-QP-K Triple 120mm Radiator
EK Waterblock - EK Supreme - Acetal
EK-FC9800 GTX SLI - Acetal
EK-NB 780i

Cooling an xfx 780i motherboard, q6700 processor, and a geforce 9800 GTX video card. How's it look?

Also, I was wondering if a full-tower case is a must, could I pull it off with a mid-tower case? I am looking at buying a Lian Li PC-7FW (when they become available).

erh, is this all in ONE single loop? Mid-tower works if u shove some stuff outside of the case. theres no need for a fill-port if ur usin a reservoir....

Not sure if that is enough rad to cool it all, especially if you are going to water cool in a single loop.

I would suggest the GTX360 at a minimum a GTX 480 would be a better choice for a single loop. For fans I like the Scythe Ultra Kraze 2000's 120 by 38 mm other prefer the panaflows. If you get a 360 I would suggest 6 fans in a push pull configuration with 1.5 inch spacers on both sides.

Also, make sure the Swiftech is the Vario version as it has about 30% more flow than the nonVario version.

Heres my experience with EK Supreme and EK GPU block. The Ek Supreme was VERY restrictive. I changed the EK Supreme to a Dtek Fuzion V.2 and dropped 10c temps.

Might have just been a seating problem with my board. But it didnt work out.

@lilsquirtle
I was planning on mounting the radiator outside of the case, and thanks for pointing that out.

@Tufelhunden
I was wondering if a single loop would handle 3 blocks or not. Buying a larger radiator doesn't bother me, but I've heard that the GTX line has a lot of volume. Is this true? Also, if a 3x120 isn't enough, would two 2x120's in series do the same? Just because there's alot more choice than with one 4x120.

@keyboard_commando
in that case, I'll go with the fuzion v2. I've heard good things about both.

adding more components gives more restrictions to the loop. so if u can get 4x120, its better than 2x120. the math sounds the same but u gotta remember u got extra tubing, its entering and exiting another radiator so its like another 90 degree elbow... i'd go 4x120 and have a push AND pull fans (if not at least in pull since it performs 1-2C better). oh i dont think u need 8 anti-kink coils... i bought 1 coil from performance-pcs and it was enough for a CPU GPU 2x radiator loop with a reservoir. i had to go 2 radiators because originally i had just a 240mm stealth rad for my e6600 and then i moved to q6600 and added the GPU block and couldnt sell out the stealth.

Not sure what you mean by volume. It is larger, but not super restrictive.

Another thought for a single loop is two pumps in series, ie. pump > rad > cpu > Pump > GPU > NB > res > pump

Sorry, by volume I mean noise level.

They are getting you lined out on parts, I'll leave you some stuff to read and my cleaning and set-up PDF also, be sure to read all the stickies here, there is a lot of good info in them...

Its pretty basic and straight forward setting these up,just take your time setting up, then leak test, leak test some more and then when your really sick of leak testing do it again...
