What's the biggest combination of radiators I can get away with easily in a 900D?
I'd like to have 2 radiators, a 420 and a 480, as thick as possible in push/pull. I was thinking a UT60 480mm in the top and a Monsta 420 in the bottom.

If you guys had to pick between regular tubing or acrylic which would you go? I'm assembling a parts list for my upcoming loop and the only parts that are set in stone are the rads, blocks, and mayhems lol.

Part of me feels like my loop wont be intricate enough to pull off acrylic simply because it's only incorporating the GPU/CPU and two rads and a res.

So far i have my system in the sig, a 780 + EK block on the way, a swiftech MCRP 320 quiet edition, 4 sp120s. Thinking i'm settling on 7/16 x 5/8 tubing and running straight lines using bitspower fittings much like Joe's rig here.


Though i see some of these acrylic builds and it makes me want to go acrylic. Idk if i feel like spending the extra $$ on tools required to bend and tune up acrylic. Watercooling alone will be spanning into the 600$ realm for this build, and i'm still thinking of another 780 classy down the line. No plasticizer with acrylic also right? That's a big plus as well.

Also frozen CPU has a D5 kit they will assemble for you that includes the bitspower 150 res, D5 upgrade kit, and pump top. Is it worth 250$ or should i just get the stuff and assemble it myself? I'm just thinking if i ran into a problem with the acrylic top that i'd be stuck sending things back where as if they assemble it they should theoretically catch it right?

Biggest pro to the acrylic is that it is plasticizer free and will never cloud (from the tube at least). It also looks pretty saweeet.

You don't necessarily NEED all that many tools for acrylic, they only make things nicer. All that is required is a heat gun which you can pick up for $10-20, a mini hack saw which is $10 or less, the bending cord which is a couple bucks, and . You probably have a simple file laying around already to clean up the edges from sawing. For doing the bends, I am sure you have a roll of tape somewhere that you can use or some other round object.


Should add that the heat gun has reusability for sleeving cables, removing stickers from things (fans), and many other tasks as well

Either way two seperate blocks for R9 290X with bridge would set you back the same price wink.gif

Far too Long for my case rolleyes.gif

EDIT: Just two 8P-PowerCables ? nerdsmiley.png ... thought that was 1*6P and 2*8P


AC tends to be pricier then other brands. I know the 7990 blocks started ~$160 USD. Also, your're using less materials/components vs two separate blocks. I'll probably go with the ek one down the road when I move on to these guys (if I do tongue.gif).

295X2 retails for ~$1500 USD. Its sad since two new 290X can be had for ~$1100. Cooler (hybrid) and video connectors are probably some of the reasons for the higher cost. Sucks since 7990 came ~$1000 USD (7970s still retailed for ~$500 USD at that time, despite used ones going for a lot less).

Reference cards will try to appease a larger audience and hence why they maybe a little bit constrained in their design. Add in board partners can create custom boards and setups and that's why you see cards with three 8-pin connectors and huge pcb with monster triple slot coolers.

Plasticizer still a big risk now a days? If it is i'll just have to bite the bullet and buy a heat gun and go acrylic. If i were to go acrylic i'd probably add another 120 rad on the rear exhaust just to throw some more routes for tubing in there.

At the same time Joe's picture up above looks great with 7/16 x 5/8s tubing.

When FCPU does the assembly, it's neither more or less $ if you look at the prices, it's the same, and they send you ALL of the original boxes, so if there are any issues, you can send back in the OEM box. But they don't do a leak test on the parts after assembly.

I see. If it's roughly the same price i'll just let them assemble it.

Go acrylic. I actually found acrylic to cost me around the same as going with quality soft tube as the tube itself is cheaper and you can often save on angle fittings. I picked up a heat gun for like $30 nzd which is cheap as, and didn't need any fancy tools just a hacksaw, some sand paper and a cutting mat for bends lol. Also I built myself a simple cutting jig for cleaner cuts.
Also I only have 2 rads, res, CPU and 1 gpu. Check out my build, I got some pretty good results for my first time water cooling.

Acrylic update if you remember a while back i runed a Gigabyte 7850 by some how breaking one of the small connections on the back side of the PCB




So on the R9 270X I made an acrylic back plate. I was however worried about the causing a temperature increase. My custom built GPU block screws and bolts had just enough space to place a small nylon washer between the acrylic and the card. Is this enough or should i have more space? about 3/16"




Temps have gone down a lot after placing the new acrylic bottom on the case! i have made no other changes to the configuration.

Old base.

New base


Temps before


Temps after


Both captures are taken after ~1 hour of Titan Fall on max settings. i re-seated the GPU only when i switched everything out (Base/backplate), room temps are getting warmer not colder. and for the big plot twist I dropped the push/pull config for just pull. for looks!
i love working with this stuff, and any ideas are appreciated.

please comment.

Update: sorry about the screen shots poor quality
