Building a WC Loop, Could use pointers - Page 2

Tbh I'll go with whatever has my loop running well, as long as it doesn't sound like a jet engine.

Sorry Word just crashed my computer ._.

Also, is a 250MM a good size for the res?

Shameless bump cause I'm almost done :x

Still need pump/fittings and reservoir size

That's all personal preference; any size reservoir works.

Fittings are also personal preference; if you can spend that much, compression fittings are quite nice.

For what you're asking about the pump, I would just go with the Laing D5 Vario.

Yeah, I'm definitely getting compression fittings. I won't need clamps with them, will I?

Only reason I'm asking about the reservoir size is because the bigger ones are out of stock... only one avaliable is the 175 ML version.

That's the pump I just settled on

Saying this from my own experience, but I'm not too sure, so correct me if I'm wrong. I don't think compression fittings will fit on the top inlet of the EK FC580 block since the PCB will block the fitting, preventing it from being screwed in properly.

When I installed my block on the 570, I encountered this problem. The fitting cannot be screwed in properly, thus there were leaks. Had to order normal EK high flow barbs + hose clamps to fix that problem.

:s Should I go with another block then?

No the block is great, just don't use compression fittings on the top inlet

That's pretty dumb. The 1/2 ID 3/4 OD compression fittings easily clear the PCB on the EK 470 block and card.

You should still be able to work around that by using a 45-degree rotary fittings and then attaching the compression fittings to that. I used this to clear the EK backplate of my GTX 470.

Half the point of compression fittings is the aesthetic value. I wouldn't want to ruin that 800D window view with a brass clamp thrown into the mix.
