Love how you did the pump under the res. How did you mount that?

I think it would look better too, that case is BIG it would help fill it up.

Looks like he just used a bit of tubing and some fittings. I used an XSPC male-male G1/4 fitting to suspend my pump below the res, worked really well.

Anyone using a Heatkiller Rev 3 CPU block? I'm really considering a Heatkiller GPU block for my first custom build and my OCD makes me want to buy a matching set of CPU and GPU blocks. From what I've read, the Rev 3 performs well but has a hard-to-use mounting system compared to the other CPU block I've been considering (Swiftech Apogee HD)

Actually, in my personal experience, HK gpu blocks have been a breeze to install. Some of the earlier and recent (within the last year) EK blocks have been a pita to install mostly due to the loose standoffs you have to position with tim (eewwwww). They have sorted this to follow with what other makers have done.

As far the cpu block. Most of the blocks are pretty close. The HK 3.0 block has its years but its still a great cpu. I wouldn't pay retail for it. The Swiftech HD is a great performer. Most good cpu blocks are within a few if not fractions of a degree of each other. I've tried XSPC and EK cpu blocks and EK's new "easy mount" system is very good.
post #23456 of 106449
Yeah, I am still leaning towards the Apogee HD. Swiftech stuff in general seems to be good and they have great customer service from what I hear. However they lack a waterblock for the 680 (Except for EVGA Hydro, I guess.)

Edit: As for EK, I'm trying to stay away from them right now. I really wanted to like their stuff but the great nickel fiasco and hideous new polka-dot waterblock designs were enough to scare me off. mad.gif

Swiftech/EVGA blocks haven't been receiving good praise. I would skip them. Koolance makes some nice nickel blocks (cpu an gpu). They have a bit of an industrial look to them, so it maybe love it or hate it decision. I would recommend HK gpu blocks but don't pay retail price for the cpu block. At this money, there are quite a few better options.

I'm not adverse to the Koolance look. Thanks for the input, it's really helpful.

Apologies for bringing this up 3 pages late but regarding flushing with Tap Water issue...

I see no reason to even contemplate using Tap Water to flush anything in a water cooling loop.

Here are my reasons.

1) The price of Distilled is cheap enough to make it the preferred solution. Especially for those who have to pay for their water usage or even if you're on a Well.

2) If you have Hard Water it can do some nasty things to the flow chambers of the Radiator. Including cause blockage(s) due to mineral/calcification deposits.

3) Vinegar(if you do Vinegar flush which I wholly recommend) is mixed with Distilled to approximately 5% acidity +/- a percent or so. The information is on the jug.

4) Unreliable PSI information regarding water pressure. Are you on a pressure booster? Many apartment complexes run a booster due to low pressure at the main.



~Ceadder smil3dbd4e4c2e742.gif


1. It has nothing to do with price
2. If this ever happened from 15 mins of rinsing, then that water you have is not even safe to drink or to use for food.
3. Correct, but I'm not sure what you are getting at. Vinegar will conduct electricity, but poorly.
4. The reason I connect my rad to the facet is because you can flush it under pressure. Just poring distilled and shaking can just move the heave particles farther back in to the rad making it harder to get them out. As for over pressuring the rad, this is why I just use tape and not a barb connection to attach it to the sink, the tape will give before the rad.

If you are worried that you might be adding minerals to the distilled from using tap water, this is why I use one gallon for my final rinse to dilute anything left in the rad and why it is my first step. If you are worried about bio contamination, use a kill coil or a biocide, guessing you already do.

BTW Martin flushes with tap water, this is where I got it from.

This.

I would be more worried about putting vinegar in a rad TBH.....

1) I should hope not. Still... thinking.gif

2) Not true. City water has to be potable. It's illegal and a major health risk to send anything less than potable water through the system. Not only that but it also depends on the quality of the pipes.

3) Who said anything about Running Vinegar? It's only used to clear out the excess flux in the Radiator. If you do the job right there won't be any Vinegar left in the Radiator. Performing a HOT flush with 500ml of Vinegar, 500ml of 50/50, 1000ml of Distilled with a cold flush of distilled should get any excess flux left in the system out. Vinegar is acidic but at 5% by volume or less it's not going to hurt a thing and following up with a Distilled flush should make any vinegar that is left behind after the first two steps would and should render the Vinegar inert. Did you seriously think I was suggesting running Vinegar? I hope not. mellowsmiley.gif

4) Yes just simply shaking the Radiator can cause the particles to go firther back into the system. However, as I pointed out the pressure for your system may not be the same as the pressure of my system. Suggesting a Tap flush is fine pressure-wise if everyone on the planet has the same psi rating. But no two systems are alike.

Sorry but I'll agree to disagree on the tap water flushes. I don't see the need to do it when I can get a reasonable water filter from Home Depot ~$20 a clean 5 gallon bucket for free and use a submersible pump that runs the same or near the same constant pressure as most any pump available in the open market for water cooling for ~$20 as well. Any debris left behind should get filtered out of the Radiator with the cold flush.

Love your setup though. Don't you have bigger fittings? Coulda swore I saw some 1/2" fittings the last time I saw your fittings case. thinking.gif

That Q Res looks awesome werm. thumb.gif
