Right... I've noticed over the past months/year that watercooling was way more expensive for americans than europeans (atleast French). I do admit that $2/3 for a meter of tygon shocked me since it's 5/7€ a meter here. Makes sense that it'd be feet
About my loop ! I came back from school and it was all going well, making way less noise, no signs of any leaks... So I drained the loop (reminder: it was DI water+3 blue drops, not what I'll be using) and measured the volume with a 50cl empty bottle of water. I was amazed by how less coolant is needed in such a loop. It totalled to less than a litre. I was really expecting at least half a liter more for some odd reason.
I then mixed my blue berry concentrate with DI water (using what turned out to be a 125ml glass and the empty bottle of 5l DI water, had two).
As amazing it may be I had absolutely no filling issues whatsoever. The pump sucked the water out of the res quick and it went up to the top rad straight away as it should.
I'm thinking since it (and the rads, 4noctuas, reservoir and top are) is a second hand pump that the owner had let sit for a couple months before I bought it the pump sort of needed to take a cool ower to wake up an perform normally. Anyway, it works
About the pump, it's currently sitting on the testing PSU and will be on my rig's psu after. Thing is it vibrates a lot. I lifted it and you can't hear it at all but when it's down on the pump it makes enough noise to stop me from sleeping.
How would you guys go by to stop the vibrations (or atleast absorb them).
Oh and that blue berry mayhems is such a beauty I almost feel ashamed to plan on dying it darker
(Huge thanks to michael from mayhems for helping me get both the concentrates and dye
I'll be making a worklog with whatever photos can gatherand some shots I'll take later once it's all in place (maybe not today but definitely before monday).
