post #12451 of 106076
Figured Id show off what im working on. It my first step into water cooling and im pretty much blowing big money on it along with new parts. Dont worry about the ram block bottlenecking cuz im running a bypass around them so theyll only get half pressure as the rest of the blocks do.

There has to be no air in the tubing between the pump and the res. Tilt your case so that you know for sure that the water from the res is going into the pump, and that it's full of water.

Try stopping the pumps and starting back up again. I do this initially to push the water through. If the pump runs out of water, it will just spin and the blades will not catch the water. By stopping it and starting it up again, I'm able to move water through the loop faster. I have a DDC btw.

what are your core/mobo temps like at that speed?

btw your vc wiring looks nice I wish more manuf. would put the power cables coming off the rear instead of the 180 deg.

idle at the moment im sitting on 39C at full load it's 58C. ambient is 25C here today.

yeah graphics cards are 2 different brands, shame but the 2nd was just too cheap to pass up.

nice to know the newer intel chips have improved tdp. those are very good temps for your OC at that ambient. hats off to intel.

everything is setup, no leaks after 6h, the res is nearly full, not even half an inch left to the top and no more water going in to it, but ive noticed low pressure in the tubes and.. ive decided to investigate.... one of the pumps works grand, you can see the water running through its loop, but the other one just makes a humming noise and produces barely any flow....so let me guess ive got a dead pump?its gone be a few weeks before ill get an rma;( is there any way i can transform this into a single loop with one pump? is it gone be enough for 2x rx360 rads with a cpu block and two gpu blocks? and well... both loops are full of water though and since this was my first wc build im how do I say this.... clueless how to get the water out so I can take it apart and try to make a single loop out of it... and if this wasnt enough ive got maybe 12" of tubing left so ill have to use what ive got in the build already I will appreciate all input and help guys

I'm running a single pump with a 2 360's, a 120, CPU block and dual GPU blocks and works fine "For Me"

+1 to Freakn

I have the 360/240, CPU and 2x GPU's all on 1 crappy XSPC pump.
Higher flow is always better, but unless you go way overboard with restrictive blocks everywhere most pumps these days should work quite well.
