OCN Water Cooling Club And Picture Gallery - Page 895

post #8941 of 106717
Okay, it ain't pretty and it ain't the best, but the whole build was done without any mods. I needed to be able to drive 4 monitors with DVI so dual graphic cards were a no-brainer. These Asus 460's are non-standard so I had to adapt a GPU cooler to them as you can see in the pics. Ain't the prettiest system, but works great.

Mosoon Pump/Res combo gave me a problem. It has 2 outlets and 2 inlets. It always seemed to trap bubbles in the upper outlet, so I used both outlets and "Y"ed them to the cooler input. Also, due to Ramsinks used, had to use 1/4 barbs on GPU's to clear! LOL! "Y"ed those also. It all works fine and dandy and no complaints except next time I will buy reference cards and use standard GPU blocks.

Another Problem I had was the case fans from Corsair were pitiful, so all those were replaced. The upper/rear one was turned around to push air INTO the case because the 5 radiator fans were overpowering it and nothing came out! LOL! Nice magnetic fan filter on the way for that change.

The Corsair Ram Cooler was heavy too and seemed to loosen after a while. So, to fix that, I took it apart, lost the bottom aluminum "L" piece, used standard fan screws and now it's a lot lighter and holds a lot better. This cooler was supplied as part of the 6Gig Dominator Ram Kit.

It looks like the rads are mounted to the side panels with hinges and the Koolance rad bracket is just keeping the rads from moving. Here is the rad mount

That is just not true. If the temperature throughout your entire loop equalizes your radiator isn't working. Lol :-P

also its good to go 240-> cpu-->120--> back to res, that way the warm liquid does not sit in the res, it stay there somewhat cooled

The 120mm radiator would sit behind the CPU and before the gpu block.... I'd go with less tubing and use one 360mm Rad if I hadn't already gotten the 240.

The correct word would probably be 'stabilise' instead of equalise .

nope, water temps will equalize throughout the loop. "Stable" water could be in reference to minimizing turbulence. my
