A few Q's about watercooling Parts

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi, I was just wondering if I could just use a fillport on a WC system I'm building and not buy a reservoir, or do I need a reservoir? also what do I use the T and Y fittings for? Thanks in advance, JOHN

A "T" fitting can be used to insert a fillport, yes...

And you can take the reservoir out of the loop...

Y fittings are used with 3 port watter blocks.

T fitting are used when you don't have a resivor and don't wan't to cut down on flow.

yes, you can use a fill port instead of a resivor, but the less watter in the system the higher the temps. when sing a fill port you mount it to the top of your case and conect it using a T fitting.

why does this setup have a reservoir fillport and a fillport on its side? how would a fillport work if it was on its side on the bottom of the case? also could I just use distilled water in the system to begin with or is it a must to get some additives for it.

It has that on it's side so it can be easily drained, when the fluid needs to be replaced.
edit: RUnning just idstilled water is not reccomended, additives improve heat conductivity, and your system will run hotter without any sort of additive, but it will still work.

having one on the side is great for draining your system.

you should buy some Water Wetter to prevent corrosion.

Bleh, water wetter stains everything it touches, and it smells like crap.
You should get DD MCT-40, it is said to be the best at conducting heat, and it's UV reactive!

the statement about waterwetter is true, but the statement about MCT-40 is not


the classic distilled water + antifreeze (+ UV dye) cannot be beat - no alternative fluid will have better heat conductivity than plain water, nuff said.

but if you're looking for a non-conductive fluid, look at the new line of PC-ICE coolants - they're all non-conductive, plus come in a variety of UV-reactive colors as well as clear non-UV
