post #46601 of 102271
I got a question. How come I see people builds with long tubes ran but then I see clean builds like the couple above me where the wires are all short and snug? I like the short ones is it harder to do?

Looking to do a first time setup soon

I used a big pot on my stove for this. Got the water warm (about where it starts making bubbles on the side of the pot, but no hotter), and dipped my tubing in for a bit, let it warm up, and slide it over the compression fitting barbs.
It helps that I didn't use that much plastic tuning on my last build, though. Used fitting for most of the visible part.

Nice setup! Is that a Monsta 480? Seems that these fans can handle rads that thick. thumb.gif
Thanks for the feedback.

I finally got around to filling my loop!! I am VERY happy with the results considering this is my first custom WC loop.


Unfortunately the GPU will not be put under water due to money/time restraints, but this is not an issue for me at all biggrin.gif

Your first loop uses acrylic tube?
seriously well done, been playing with water for a while and I still dont have the guts to bend acrylic tubes
my ocd would just be too troublesome and expensive if its not properly bend

Just a lil something for you to try, warm the tubing up with a hair dryer. It becomes a little more pliable, but don't get it too soft or it'll kink or pinch closed on itself. I use a dowel rod that's just a hair smaller then Inner diameter of the hose. It helps get the curves out of shorter runs. Just remember to leave it on the dowel rod as it "cools down" so it keeps the straight formation. This should help with getting it to be more cooperative, but be careful cramming it into places that you don't pinch it off biggrin.gif

I just jumped straight to the advanced, like in everything else I have done biggrin.gif But I probably wasted one meter of tubing on the most complex bend, but that was something which I had accounted for. Lucky for me, acrylic tubing that I bought here in Sweden was SO cheap, that I paid 88SEK/$12US for 4 meters. I thought it was extremely easy as well, but it just takes a little more time thumb.gif

I guess you plan to WC the GPU's too?


Yes, just need to know if without serious modding I will be able to fit 360mm RAD on top and put the 45mm one on bottom, so I have enough headroom for the 450W TDP for gpus and also for CPU, so need to consider rad pricing but most importantly two very expensive gtx 670/680 Waterblocks.. but I'll need to do that because they reach above 85C..

These fans are from BlackNoise, a.k.a. NoiseBlocker.

I think they look good. But I wonder about the performance.

My experience:

Bought 5x B12-4's for my rig, 2 where defective and didn't start to spin. They don't undervolt very well. One is clicking @ 1000rpms very noticeably.
I have also found some weird resonances at certain rpms when decelerating .
Nevertheless, great looking fans and they move quite a lot of air at full speed.
Maybe slower ones are better. Hope it helped thumb.gif
