Need watercooling guru advice!

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Okay, well heres the story. I've waited nearly 2 years for my setup and I've bought everything myself by doing chours and what not. Since I'm really into overclocking a little while ago I decided to go for it all and go W/C. I'm dissapointed w/ my current setup so I'm deciding to upgrade w/ some of my college found money (only withdrawing like $100 + what I already have saved If I need it). Now the question for all you guru's out there. My current setup is this
kit. Now, I've gotten this heatercore w/ a shroud that goes w/ two thermaltake thunderblade fans. I also am upgrading the pump to this Hydro L35 pump. Now will the pump apply to much pressure to the rest of the system and cost a leak. I will be running this CPU water block and this north bridge water block. I also will have a 5 ½ bay res. Do you think the pump will have to much pressure (its 450GPH!!), and I'm scared that it could cause a leak at a unexpected time. What do you guys think about this whole situation. Do you think it will be fine!?

Josh

P.S. I'm using hose clamps / zippy ties and primoflex tubing.

Just make sure that when you hook everything up that you leak test it outside of the computer for at least a day...you could maybe only do it for 12 hours but if you really want to be safe wait a day.

Measure everything out first and install it into the system, then take it out zip-tie everything and leak-test it, then simply throwit back in.

I'm just going to take out my motherboard for the day that it's in the computer and leak test it in there, with out anything else so I do not have to bleed the system again

I had that pump, and it is loud. It is not too powerful, I had it in my loop w/ a double heater core, a dd single bay res, swiftech apogee cpu block and a polarflo tt gpu block

I would suggest either a via aqua 1300, as it is cheaper and you can mod it to be quieter, or a dd d5 pump

You already have the kit? Or you are going to get the kit? Kinda unclear on that. Anyway--I know nothing about that CPU WB--the best block for the money is prolly the apogee from Swiftech (frozencpu) and the best pump the D5--the heatercore looks good and all the rest is okay--Have you shopped other vendors?

Take a look at cooltechnica and frozencpu and coolerguys--mountain mods is another source for resevoirs and stuff--I got a lot of tubing and stuff from sidewindercomputer--well good luck and IMO do some more window shopping...

I have that whole kit. I think I'm just going to wait and get everything new. (New CPU WB, and a new GPU WB). In that way everything will be watercooled :-) And I will have time to mod my case peacefully; I have family over my house for the next 2 weeks or so....
