WC build log for my rig - Page 14

post #131 of 218
Thread Starter 
I drained the loop and have the pump drying. I'm going to attempt to get the impeller locked to make the pump quieter.

I was also able to borrow a drill so I can drill the holes for the tubing to come out of my case and for the drain.

on a side note... I just talked to my dad and he's going to give me some of his extra tools when my parents come out next month for graduation.
I know for sure I'll be getting: a drill, circular saw, probably a jig saw, and maybe a miter saw I'm excited! Now I won't have to borrow tools every time I need to do something. Heck, I just bought a vice grip yesterday so I could get that screw out that I broke.

I asked at home depot if they had a floor vice grip that I could use and they didn't have one. What kind of hardware/building store doesn't have employee tools?

oh well... it was like $10.50 and vice grips are something that I'll get use out of.

alright, here's some pics of my drain and my holes to run the tubing out of my case.

yeah, well actually I saw them on frozencpu and figured I'd get some. I think it was about the same time it was suggested on here. Can't remember which came first

I tooks some super glue to the impeller of the pump. hopefully it'll be quiet now!

alright, here's my last post for the night. I've got to actually get some sleep tonight

I spliced my fans together so I only have to run a single line into my case, and I tested the fans on my bro's computer. They work and look cool... but I didn't take a pic, so that'll have to come later.
I also mounted my heater core on the back of my case.
I also tried to glue the impeller w/ super glue... but it didn't work. pump is still loud...
I mounted my apogee block on my mobo and started to put things back into my case.



and here is what I have thus far



my rig is starting to take shape once more. any suggestions on how to run my tubing? I have both a Y and a T fitting to branch off to my drain. I'd like to use the Y, but looking at my rig I may need to use the T... idk.

I was thinking about

res > pump > rad > cpu > gpu > Y to drain and to res
or
res > Y to pump and drain > cpu > gpu > rad > res
or
res > pump > rad > cpu > gpu > Y to drain and res

so what's the best? any tips for running tubing (other than measure twice )
oh, and what does everyone use as a tape measure? I don't think I have a fabric tape

When running a peltier as I do there is a very lot of heat generated and having the correct set-up is very important. There is a very noticeable temperature difference between the inlet and outlet side of the radiator.

When running a standard water cooled rig as discussed at much length before in the forums there hasn't been a real noticeable diffenence in performance with running the loop in different configurations. There was only a degree or 2 difference if I can recall correctly. As a little rule of thumb for me the rad is always before the cpu to have the coolest possible temp liquid flowing through the cpu block. Very important for my type of cooling indeed.


For me the only way is pump\
ad\\block.

alright, thanks for the replies. I did try freddy's via aqua mod... but there wasn't enough room inbetween the impeller and the spindle. It was also tight enough that air couldn't get in there to allow the glue to dry. I guess I'll just use the pump. it does sound like pebbles are running through it though... so idk.
I should get the backplate for my gpu block and a new res cap today. I'll probably go check the mail in a bit. Then I plan to plumb my loop, check all my fittings and then w/o my system powered up run my loop for a while and see how it goes, check for leaks and all that.
