I am not a big fan of bay reservoirs but I would still take that XSPC kit though- it is better for the money.

Huh, what ever in the food/water must still be working on me. Than again I probably still considered young since I am only 23. But, I still thank my Dad to this day at showing me a how to use a Windows 3.1 and how to use computer at his job ( it was all terminal, no fancy GUI) when I think I was like only 3-4 years old, and the basic simple computer class in pre-school.

Though, I get a kick out of people around in Cali being surprise I know how to put computers together and such, with my Southern accent and being a gal.

XSPC RayStorm 750 EX240

or

EK KIT L120

or maybe someone could suggest another kit in a similar price range, i'm looking to spend around £150 max?


I'm kinda leaning towards the Raystorm, for the larger rad - bigger is better overiously? and the fact that the res fits in the cddrive bays if im not mistaken? But as for the rest of the included parts in the kits idk



thanks in advance smile.gif

Hey guys, just a simple question. If I hook up an 8 port PWM adapter to the PWM CPU 4 pin, and have my pump on port 1 and all the rad fans etc on the others. Can receiving a too high of a signal cause the pump to overwork its self?

Im going with the D5 X-TOP I want to set up the fan curve in the bios to max everything out at 60C, It should idle around 20-25ish. So I can OC the chip as high as I can while maintaining max cooling if it's needed. I'm using compression fittings so I doubt they tubes can pop off.

I think mixing PWM devices on the same splitter can "possibly" cause issue's. The Intel spec for PWM is a 25kHz pulse. But i think it's allowed to be ~5kHz off in either direction and still be considered spec. Meaning the controller and fan/pump will still be able to communicate with each other. But mixing frequencies on the same splitter could possibly cause complications.

 

Anybody (Darlene) feel free to correct me if i'm wrong about this

Honestly, i don't know if either of those are a good solution for a CPU + GPU Loop. Trying to save money in certain aspects of watercooling, especially the pump, can end up costing you more in the end. 

 

If you're gonna get an XSPC Kit, i strongly recommend one of their D5 kits. D5 is a great pump.

 

Also, definitely get a 360 or 2x240's to cool your cpu + gpu.

 

If that's truly your budget, you might be better off getting something like an h100i for your CPU and an h80i with a GPU Bracket for your GPU.

Same here. I intentionally haven't added everything up yet. Too scurred
Also same about it not being up and running. This is the most current pic

There is no such thing as too high a PWM signal. 100% PWM is 100% pump speed on the PWM d5.

The issue with mixing PWM devices can be that they have very different PWM response curves. So that for example 70% PWM might have fans running at 70% speed but the pump is running at 100% or you might want a low PWM % for quiet fans at idle but that would make the pump run very slow. A 35X curve for example about 15% to 60% PWM is the range from min to max speed.

The PWM D5 may be one of the better devices to do this with though as it has a quite straight response curve from 10% to 100%. That doesn't guarantee that both will be doing the speeds you want at the same times though, it would depend on the fans you mix it with.

Actively controlling pump speed gives very little benefit anyway.

This shouldn't be an issue. It will depend on what fans you use though as to how well this will actually work. If you're using a straight splitter like ours then some fans, specifically Corsair's fans, tend to have issues. They require a higher PWM signal than most other PWM fans and therefore if you put more than three or four of their fans on this splitter everything defaults to full speed. So far these are the only fans that appear to cause this issue.

Just get a D5 vario with manual speed,set it and forget it.Keep your 8 pin PWM splitter and set your fans to what ever you want with out it conflicting with your pump speeds.thumb.gif
