Nice lookin` rig you have there! Very interesting layout. thumb.gif

is 2x 840mm radiators (aquacomputer) enough to cool 2 780ti's and 2 Xeons passively?

Thanks, had to make it work. Had some problems encountered when I finally got all the watercooling stuff, front rad don't fit so I had to bore out the pre-drilled holes in the case to make em bigger to fit the rads up front. and I planned to put the res/pump right on the bay area but had to put it on that back with a mount coz the res/pump was taller than I thought it would be.

In the end I was able to make it work, that tubing connecting the CPU block to the res was the thing that gave me the most headache of them all, hard to do two consecutive bends in a row.

Completely passive even at full load would be very much of a challenge and completely dependent of how you set them up inside/outside of your case.
Putting a few fans on them that are normally off and only turn on once the watertemperature reaches a certain level will ensure that you won't be having boiling hot water in your loop over time..
You could of course go and calculate how much heat they can passively dispatch but you have to remember these aren't designed for passive usage. The fins are modified in such way to ensure turbulent flow over them, but this drastically reduces natural convection.

So at low heat loads you'll be fine, with 1000watts going through the system I highly doubt it.

Perhaps,depending on case airflow and OC.

These are the AMS rads you are thinking about?

There are some push fittings for 3/8" and Phobya makes some push fittings for 10mm.

As far as compression like Primochill Ghost (1/2", not 12 or 13mm), I have not seen any for either size.
Yeah the sizes can be pretty confusing with the mixmash of metric and imperial measurements. Took me a while to figure it out. Got my tubing and fittings laying here and it fits biggrin.gif

yes these are the AMS, I am looking to use them in a desk lying flat so that the air flows bottom to top, if I can get away with passive it would save me a few hundred quid on fans

My first costum watercooling loop.
It has it's flaws, but it's not done yet. I made this in a 10 hour session yesterday after work, basicly working on it from I got home till I went to bed.
I still need to pain the Fan rings, bleed the loop entirely, some proper lighting (Tried green, but it looked horrid in my honest opinion, so I'll try and put in some white LEDs see if it creates a better looking rig) In due time I'll add another CPU or two, but for now it'll stay as is, atleast the main components.
The aim is to try out acrylic eventually but I thought I start out with something that seemed a bit easier and it turned out better than I had expected.





Opinions and/or sugestions are much appreciated! thumb.gif

Only thing I can recommend is change the color of the fans to match you build the ring on the outside of the fans that is.
