If you need the multiple ports though then it's a no brainer. But consider also a T/Y/4-way splitter to get around that issue.


Also, ask the guy if he plans to expand his distribution of HWL in NA. As far as i know, only PPCS seems to carry the HWL rads. Even the GTX is non existent. Just the GTS/SR2 models are up.

Yes, FCPU is there - but do you really want to gamble your money on that place? I dont.

Great build. I love that that vinyl wrap where do you guys go about purchasing that stuff? Maybe I'm looking in the wrong section but I haven't been able to find it on the usual sites. I'd like to cover part of my in Enthoo Primo in it.

Aesthetically, I don't have a problem with the wrap, I just did a bad job cutting it.

The GPU sag is something that really concerns me. Not so much left to right, but from the PCIE slot to the front G1/4 ports. If those containers aren't there it is pretty drastic. I'm thinking my case's PCI brackets may be a bit off. If I take the PCI screws out and push the GPU level, the screw holes don't match up. I am hoping the tension between the fittings/tubing is enough to hold it. Installation will be a PIA. In the future I may have a custom carbon fiber (the real stuff) back plate custom made. Carbon fiber is an amazing material. It even transfer heat well!

I go to Amazon for most of my vinyl wrap. Anything from Vivid Vinyl is pretty good. 3M stuff is the highest quality In terms of carbon fiber vinyl, this stuff is easily the best. Most CF vinyls don't actually look like resin treated CF, that stuff does. Make sure you follow the directions though. Clean surface, hairdryer/heat gun, maybe a second set of hands, etc. There are a couple vinyl guides on OCN.

Want to mount the pump either to the bottom of the case using the uni-holder and probably the EK 50/70 so I can mount it like this, or secure it to the back:


Currently thinking about these two ways of mounting:
At the bottom. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Or secured to the rear. Preferably not as decoupling like that would be a PITA. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

These give the cleanest tubing routes (I think, open to suggestions).
The only problem I see is, how do I change the pump speed when the pump is so close to the bottom of the case....

Any tips here? Kinda stuck on this one.
Completely different ideas are also welcome. I still have to order stuff (EK Multiport top, tubing, cleaning kit, extra/new fittings etc etc) so I can easily change some things around. Only thing currently laying ready is the freshly painted EK CE 420 (posted on this a few pages back IIRC). Still waiting on the Enthoo Primo to be ready for shipment, I heard they were out of stock and were being freshly made by Phanteks.

Mount it in either location with some EK decoupler screws. Vibration problems solved with 4 of them and you can get them separately via PPCs'. thumb.gif

@paskowitz thanks a bunch for the information I appreciate it. It's a common thing in GPU blocks sadly as they tend to be kind of heavy and there's not a whole lot holding them into place. I had the same issue with one of my builds. Have you ever thought about trying one of these at least to solve the issue temporarily....

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B01DQK7DDW/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1466632348&sr=8-1&pi=SX200_QL40&keywords=gpu+bracket+support&dpPl=1&dpID=51Mq7JpxSiL&ref=plSrch

They seem to be coming out with slightly better ones and they had a couple months ago when I was looking at least they have things like GTX on the front on one of them instead of a giant brand name and the other one doesn't have anything on the front at all it's just a weaved metal pattern.

NP.

I like the triangular one. Looks like something I could easily make myself.

I have a question for you guys.

Going to be (partially) tearing down my loop (The bends from res to pump and pump to GPU because they are terrible pic below). My questions is this. Right now I have two GT's up front blowing through the front rad and then I have three more up top blowing out of the system. I can't mount a fan in the rear spot of my case (Arc Define mini 2 I think) because of the tubing.

It's against my nature to go with negative air pressure in my case. And since I've closed both sides temps have gone a good bit up (40 - 48 on GPU) I know this is as expected and I know my temps are still quite good.

My question though in a nutshell is if I should make all the fans intake (keep in mind this would be without exhaust) to give the rads max cool airflow, if I should. leave it as it is. Or if I should shove a fan under the pump and try to even it out that way at the possible cost of looks.

I know that hot air from my 240 isn't stopping my 360 from cooling I'm just wondering if anyone has run into this and what they did. I don't think I can turn my 360 around to make room for a rear fan.

100% definitely make sure that all fans going through the radiator in intake mode. Have to find a way to make exhaust. I actually had a problem with not getting enough air out because of it luckily I have caselabs so I was able to buy ventilated psu covers and I managed to add another exhaust fan. Having fans on radiator in exhaust mode has very negative effects as I discovered when I was just starting to liquid cool I had my 480 setup that way. Have you looked into nice looking designer fans that you can mount outside of the case in the back? Also some PCI covers with much bigger holes might help.

Before when it was air cooled it got to around 81/82C, and no on water in games it rarely passes 50C. I don't think I'll be satisfied either way either. I'm just having an issue with my CPU temperature at this point. The GPU, as I said, tends to run very cool. But my idle temps are kind of high which is what's making me think somethings wrong. Their even higher than my idle temps on air were, by a pretty decent amount.
The nf-f12's are 1500rpm i believe, depending on the exact rad it might benefit a decent amount from more powerful fans. I'd put the fans on the cpu header although most boards will allow you to control different headers with different temps, speedfan might be able to help you out. how warm is your cpu getting during normal use? or did I miss that

I disagree with the post above. If it ain't broke--don't fix it. Your temps, if they are loaded and real-world are fine, as you say. Aesthetics are why we are doing this, if it isn't temps... so yeah don't sacrifice form for function if the function is functioning. tongue.gif

That's just like, my opinion, man.
