580 gpu watercooling - Page 4

post #31 of 62
Thread Starter 
Hmm so it looks like I'll have to purchase my primary kit, install it, and see what kind of room I have to work with. At that point I'll buy the RS/RX120, depending. Also, of course, depending on the performance I'm getting with just the RS240. How hard is it to drain the Rasa kit once installed? And what would be the best way to do it, if/when I add the second rad?

Honestly I would just leave some extra tubing hanging right where you want to install the second radiator. Then you just cut the tubing neatly at that spot, (cut over a bucket to drain any water that flows out) and then hook it up to the new radiator. Then add some more liquid to the reservoir and re do the bleeding/filling process. It won't take nearly as long because most of the loop will have already been bleed.

Alright, so my stuff finally came in the mail
I went ahead and got the RX120 and I'll try to add it in from the first, no reason not to I guess, I'll find some place for it.
Just need to get some distilled water now.
I probably won't get started till tonight or tomorrow, so some preliminary prep questions..

Whats the best way to clean out all my parts prior to install? Following that, which parts need flushing and cleaning? Pump/res, rads, tubing, blocks, etc. All? Just rads?

Second, how hard is it to cut the tubing and lay everything out outside my case so I can leak test, and once it alls tight and good, install it as one piece? Or should I just fully install and leak test inside the case? Keep in mind this is my first time, and going for cpu and gpu blocks and a couple of rads.

Thanks in advance!

To clean radiator (only part that needs cleaning) use some hot water and vinegar. Shake radiator with mixture inside then pour it out into sink. Rinse with regular water afterward.

Better to just leak test inside your case, it's hard to asseble outside and move it in afterward. If you do get a leak nothing will be damaged as you should be leak testing with your computer powered off (except for the PSU) and the the pump being the only thing running.

I flushed my tubing with distilled water. The blocks I did nothing to, but I may just flush them with distilled as well to remove any rogue particles.

I will, and suggest you do too, flush my radiators with white vinegar and distilled water (1 part vinegar to 9 parts distilled water...preferably hot) Best thing to do is fill the rad with the hot vinegar/distilled solution, then plug it up and shake it for a good minute and then let it sit undisturbed for another 5-10 minutes. Then, unplug and drain, and fill with hot water only, plug, shake and drain. Then just run some hot water through it until it's clear.

You should be good after that...I know the radiators are the primary culprits for mucking up loops with flux.

EDIT: lol, Charlie beat me to it.

Question on the Rheobus fan controller. I'll be hooking up 3 GT-15s, do they each go to a separate channel on the controller, or can I chain them to go to a single channel and control them all with one knob?

No problems hooking them up to one knob. GTs use around 1W at full speed so you should be able to chain up to around 15 of them to a single knob.

Awesome thanks!

Next question though.. I wasn't aware that I had to order more of those plastic clamps for the tubing. I have 6 clamps, but there are 10 places to put them (2 rad with 2 clamps each, 2 blocks with 2 clamps each, 2 for the res/pump). Should I hold off installation while I get more? Or will I be fine with these? How should I distribute the 6?

If you are using 7/16" ID tubing on 1/2" Barbs (standard Rasa kit tubing) you don't need clamps. I would feel perfectly safe not using any of the clamps.

If you are however, using 1/2" ID hose on 1/2" Barbs you will need hose clamps on every fitting (they can be purchased at your local hardware store for <$0.40 each).
