Watercooling Loop Advice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

I just wanted to get a little advice. I am trying to plan out my watercooling loop, but cannot seem to be able to settle on a decent configuration.

My biggest pet peeve is seeing a tube going from the bottom to the top of the case and just hanging there, so a tube going from the pump (bottom right) straight to the cpu is not an option!

My current case setup (res location not finalized)


(more pics here: http://www.overclock.net/case-mod-wo...d-worklog.html)

I have a triple rad that will be hung on the radbox in the back and i have a single rad that is probably going to be hanging where the harddrives are (the drives are now all the way at the top of the case, empty bracket where they are now).

Pump is next to the PSU, already mounted but not visible in the pic.

I was thinking of doing this setup:

Pump, up to single rad right above it, video card, cpu, res, out to triple rad, back to pump.

I heard loop order does not make a huge difference in temps, but wanted other oppinions as to how I can set this up.

single rad locations is not finalized, trying to figure that one out now.

Ideas?

Res opening connectors are under the GPU, no way to go *through* the gpu to the cpu and then back.

the whole points is not to have long tubes which i cannot stand.
