Should be enough for a NOOB, right? lachen.gif

Does a 1/2" OD tube feel like this small?? tongue.gif


Anything that can help me with these are gladly welcomed.

Another thing i would recommend is the monsoon bending kit, it has all angles, with this you are good to go. biggrin.gif

Tubing from PrimoChill.

So, PETG.

Thanks for the tips. thumb.gif

received the jist of my parts yesterday to finish the build. a lot of new tech since i last built a computer 10 years ago!

getting ready to test my loop. currently testing it with air with the use of a on/off valve at the lowest point and threaded in a home made gauge and air valve. pumped 10psi into it and has held.

so first update pics then I will ask a few questions that have been holding me up

received my 4790k 4ghz processor
2 sticks of 4g skills sniper ram 1866
750g supernova PSU
mounted cpu and supremacy block yesterday re bent up one tube and filled it with air to test while I'm out of town working
changed the T and on off valve set up by adding a 90 fitting and getting it a bit more easy to use.

questions

=I have 4 PWM fans all on my radiators. they are 4 pin should i get a front 5.25 fan controller and control those separately? if so any suggestions on clean well built controllers? i was looking at the Lamptron touch screen

-my other 3 fans are all 3 pin one is the 200 intake up front, i have a corsair AF 140 in the rear and a phanteks 140 up top.
my case has the phanteks fan hub splitter. Should i just hook up these 3 fans to that and then the splitter to the CPU main fan port as well as the SATA 12v connection?

- The phanteks enthoo luxe has a lot of open area underneath the top pop off cover. I have a few bitzpower fittings and acrylic left over. I was thinking of making a fill port hardline up to the top of the chasi that will be concealed with the top plastic pressed on down to the top of my EK tube res. this should be no problem correct? instead of filling up from the top cap i can pop the top off and unthread a cap from a fill port fitting at the top of the chase and fill from there?

- Ive read a few articles about leak testing the system. already doing it with air but plan on doing it with coolant as well. from what I've read you have to jump the mobo wire off your PSU by jumping the green and black wire? don't wanna mess anything up so pretty much unhook everything plug in pump and jump the mobo cable thats connected to PSU.

- can't find any info on where to plug in the blue 1 pin cable from the EK d5 pump? is this optional to get variable pump speeds based on MOBO readings? like a PWM fan?

I'd like to see pics of how you did your air leak test gauge & valve to see how it compares with my setup.

You'll likely need an Aquaero 6 to control anything more than a few Corsair PWM fans. If you have 4 or less Corsair PWM fans then you should probably just use something like the Swiftech 8-way PWM splitter and control them from your CPU_FAN header, though that will spoil any plans to use the same header for the Phanteks hub you mention below.

Be aware that Corsair PWM SP120s have issues where control of more than 3-4 fans per PWM header are iffy at best. Once you add a 4th, 5th, or if you're lucky a 6th fan to a header they tend to lose PWM control and revert to full speed. They are the only PWM fan known to have that problem. The Aquaero 6 is one of the few PWM fan controllers available and has been revised to allow it to control more Corsair PWM fans per channel.

Here's a recent post from Darlene (IT Diva) discussing the limitations of PWM fan control and mentioning the issue with Corsair PWM fans and here's one where she discusses controlling them with the Aquaero 6.

The Phanteks splitter hub would be fine if it works correctly for you. Unfortunately a lot of people have trouble with it. It's designed to let you control 3 pin voltage controlled fans using the PWM signal from your mobo, so for most mobos that means you must use the CPU_FAN header, and the SATA connector should only be used if you are running more fans attached to the hub than the mobo header can handle by itself.

There shouldn't any issues with running a tube up to the top of the case from the fill port on a res. I've done similar myself more than once.

Hold the 20/24 pin plug from the PSU so that you are looking down into the pins with the clip latch up. On the top (clip-side) row count 4 pins from the left - that's the 'power on' wire - and the pins on either side of it are ground & you can jumper with a paperclip or a wire to either one.

It's the rpm signal wire that can be connected to a fan header or a fan controller just to be able to read the pump rpm and possibly set up to warn you or automatically shut down if the pump isn't spinning. It doesn't let you control the pump in any way.

Thanks for the info and quick response

I'll probably run the case fans to the phanteks splitter to the MoBo and the 4 corsair sp120s off a seperate 5.25 bay controller

Here is my air gauge the tape doesn't hold well (slow leak from tape)so I fill the system then shut off my on off valve. Come back later and then open and see if my system loop pressure is the same

So, this happened. Cooling my sig rig (i7 4790k and crossfire 290X's)

Going to improve upon it a little bit at a time. Definitely going to upgrade the rads at some point. The PC Master Race radiators are giving decent temps, for proof of concept they came in pretty handy. They were also surprisingly clean out of the box.

All together, it's a 360,240,and 120 from PC Master Race and a HW Black Ice GTX 240. Picked up 5 Swiftech Helix PWM fans, which are nice and quiet for the price. The rest are Cougar Vortex PWM.



















Res JUUUUST nudges the side-panel when installed. Put some electric tape on it to keep it from vibrating loudly.



Had an absolute blast putting everything together. Thanks guys, for the inspiration and wisdom on found on this forum thumb.gif

Sounds like you have decided already what you want to do, but instead you might want to consider running the 4 PWM SP120s off of the mobo's CPU_FAN header using a Swiftech PWM splitter and the 3-pin fans off of a fan controller or from one or more of your mobo's other headers. There aren't many PWM fan controllers worth getting besides the Aquaeros, and they can be quite pricy, but regular voltage control fan controllers don't have to cost that much. That said, if it's just 4 SP120s then you might consider the Aquaero 5 to control all of your fans. It's quite a bit less costly than the newer Aquaero 6 and has one channel that can be PWM and the others are voltage control.

OK that's better. Google found me that one. lol

20 FPI slim rads. Priced affordable enough. Not bad.
