With two GTX580s running SLI on the same loop, it's still getting a bit warm. I wonder if I should make separate loops for the CPU and GPUs, or add another radiator to the current loop.
Also fill in your system info, so we know what you're using.

Update on my sig rig.

Loop goes: Res/Pump --> 240rad --> GPU --> 120rad --> CPU --> Res/pump

Temps:

GPU: 61c
CPU: 53c average


Tested Furmark and Prime95 at the same time for these temps.

Going to order 45* angled adapters, may help my loop flow, gonna see if it helps some temps.


Thoughts?

Angle adapters can actually reduce flow. I use them only as needed. If u want more flow, drop a DDC pump in with XSPC reservoir. It will have plenty of flow for sure, LOL.

Hey guys...so I'm getting a Rasa 450 RS120 from Daz...here are the list of things I've read about:

1.) Cleaning Rads
2.) Fittings (going to replace the stock kit fitting w/ compression next paycheque)
3.) Tubing
4.) Res + Pump and its disadvantages
5.) Bleeding
6.) Replacing coolant
7.) Distilled water + additives
8.) General Maintenance
9.) Running loop for several hours to test of leaks
10.) FAQ at first post

So I will be installing it on my sig-rig and I'd like to keep the purchase on the budget side. But I will be upgrading the kit down the road with compression fittings, better pump, better res, etc. I'm getting ready for my BD upgrade.

Anyway several questions before I pull the trigger today or tomorrow...

1.) Will my Scythe S-Flex F's on push/rad/pull be powerful enough?
2.) Should I get a new pump and res along with the purchase?
3.) Should I mod the stock back-plate of my mobo or get a separate back-plate?
4.) Would it be safe to run distilled water (for 3 months) or get biocide with it?
5.) Where is the best place to place the rad? Top or rear? (As those are my only options on my CM690II :/)



6.) Will I be able to place the res+pump on my drive bays? And does it come with a mounting kit?
7.) What's the recommended length of time before I replace the water?

So far those are my questions...this is my first W/C build...so yeah.

Again thanks for all the replies!

1.) Yes
2.) See bottom
3.) Your choice
4.) Run distilled by itself for 3 months with no kill coil? No.
5.) Your choice
6.) You put it in the 3.5in bays, no mounting kit.
7.) 6 to 12 months with biocide (ptnuke or killcoil)

If you are going to be replacing the pump and res as well as the fittings, you might as well not buy the kit. Just buy the rad, a pump, a res, and a cpu block separately.

I almost did when I got my kit... It was just minutes before shutting down the rig to start installing it all that I decided to read through the thread to make sure I had all my bases covered when I came upon a post mentioning this.

I purposely looked for that second plastic and found it hard to see... AND I WAS LOOKING FOR IT! I think Daz needs to consider using a sheeting that has red plastic lines or the word "REMOVE" printed on it.

IDK about anyone else, but I wasn't looking for it (and hadn't even seen this thread until I had already installed and been running with it for a few days) but still saw it easily....and removed it..

Due to the HUGE number of posts, I haven't read through the entire post - just whatever has been said on the first page (20 posts/page) plus anything since my first post.. Hadn't known about needing to replace the water every 6-12 months until just now...

I found the film pretty easily also, ofc I already knew about it, but it was perfectly visible to me.

Is it that big of a deal to have to replace the water every 6 to 12 months?

Thanks for the reply...if I did buy everything separately it'll cost me around $364CN...w/c is more than half of the 450 RS120...hmm...

I guess I'll just try to go with the kit and just get the compression fittings. :/

Last question before I get the kit...

Will the 450 RS120 kit handle a Razor 6970 included in the loop or would the 750 RS240 be a better choice?

Thanks again...I included some killcoil with my cart. XD

When you say more than half are you factoring in a new pump and res?

A 120 is enough for a cpu, not a cpu and graphics card. I wouldn't use an RS240 with a cpu and gpu loop either, your temps will be poor. Especially if you overclock anything. RX240 min.
