post #34501 of 106452
Since Alphacool dont answer and the Monstra 140mm is looking not to be coming this year, I am taking a look on the Alphacool UT60 140mm ...

The case is a mITX, and at the moment I can find 2 options on cooling:

Option 1: (19600mm Front area)
- Alphacool UT60 140mm in Push/Pull (140mm RAD - 60mm Thick)

Options 2: (2600mm Front area)
- Alphacool UT60 140mm in Push only (140mm RAD - 60mm Thick)
+
- Black Ice GTX M80 in Push only (80mm RAD - 54mm Thick)

Options 2 will give me around 1/3 more front area of cooling, and since the system will be on the limit, is will help I think ...

But the problem with Options 2, is that everthing will be really close together ... My great skill in paint will show:



Just done this fast to show the kind of problem it will give .... How much free space to you need on the other side of the RAD where there is no fan ?

Hope you can see what I mean smile.gif

Thick walled tube will make nice fluids bends: 3/8x5/8 or 1/2x3/4. I prefer 3/8x5/8 due to the smaller diameter (od) to clear things and the slightly lower cost (usually with fittings). You'll need angled fittings with slightly less thicker tube. I briefly ran 3/8x1/2 and though i loved the size of the fittings, the bends needed additional angle fittings to make the runs fluid.

Used the XSPC RX360 kit, made some pretty stupid mistakes ...
For some reason, the idea of just rotating the CPU block around didn't come to mind, so I unnecessarily crossed the tubing.
I also mounted the rad fans in the wrong direction and forgot the I/O plate. Fixing these things would require a drain.
The only reason I haven't done it yet is because I am looking to order a GPU block and different tubing this weekend.
Guess that's what you get when you try to do it in a hurry late at night, lesson learned ... Hopefully I can get it looking better after I add the GPU.
EDIT: Forgot I uploaded this vid:

I see, so the thicker the tubing, the less likely I am going to need angled fittings. Planning the loop out in my head, I don't think I'm going to be making many. One or two tops, but I have comfortable budget, so buying a few extra compression fittings shouldn't be an issue.

I've heard that the Masterkleer tubing isn't the best to go with though... Please correct me if I am wrong or suggest another tubing brand you prefer.

Ouch! Thats why I never try to total up what my rig has cost me.
