Does my water setup check out? (PICS)

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I have everything connected and ready for fill up. I am gonna jump the 24 pin to get a 24 hour test in. I just need a few more clamps on the barbs.

I tried to stay away from the 90 degree bends. I may get a 45 for the inlet on the CPU block. Right now I just have one on the inlet of the CPU block and the outlet of the GPU block. I don't know if there is a metric for pc water cooling. But I recall in a class I had, each 90 degree bend was equivalent to 3 feet of tubing. This was for non pressurized air though.

Also I was thinking of putting some black electrical tape across the rear of the DVD drive. I took it apart to paint it so I wouldnt get any overspray on the optical sensor. The white part is the inner frame, I didn't want to mess with that. Any better ideas?

It looks ok. One thing is that it looks like your pump's outlet goes into your Res(if you have a drive bay Res, cant tell). I hear that can make a "water running" noise.

If it were me, I would make the order: pump-rad-res-cpu-gpu-pump. That way the water from the rad goes straight to the CPU. I hear order doesnt really matter, but thats how I set mine up. Plus you might be able to use less tubing, for less resistance(make a loop, not a cross).

But those are just minor. Overall looks good. What fitting is to the right of your graphic cards??

Side Note: Welcome to OCN. If you want, you can post your rig into your sig by going to User CP at the top. It is handy to have when asking questions.

Theres alot of tubing behind the res. I have the res feeding the pump. The fitting is an enzotech T-line with a bitspower temp sensor. I have an extender so it doesn't block the flow.

you might have a clearance problem with the tubing coming from the 90 degree fitting and the ram, but I can't tell depth from the pic. I do suspect you will have a problem tho.

Loop order doesn't really matter except the res should be right before the pump

Most people will agree with this statement, just line up your loop to use the least amount of tubing

Dont use right angles use 45 degree ones.

i see a kink forming right behind the res. get some anti kink. I cant see how the tubing are reaching the radiator. However overall it looks ok. pictures are not that clear.

Heres what it looks like behind the res. Raver I see where you are talking about the kink. I just looked it over. if it stays the same I think im gonna leave it. It seems tolerable considering the fittings arent a full 1/2" dia where the threads are at. Side note: I don't understand how they can call them high flow by boring them out at the barbs, but still have a smaller bore where the threads are at?

If he did 2 loops, he would need another pump, res, and rad. Plus it has been proven that 2 loops are not better than one. In some cases they are actually worse overall. I will try to find the link I read.

As for the temp sensor, I just bought one from performance-pcs. It is an inline fitting with no flow restriction. I have mine on my CPU block, and it is being used as an extension so I can (barely) use 2 compression fittings on my block. My water loop, after folding for a full day with CPU and GPU, is between 100f-104f.

I have to agree a bit with the dual cooling loops. I can see 1 video card and cpu in the same loop, but 2 video cards might be dumping a ton of heat. Also, having your pump hit the rad first is def more advantageous then going straight to your CPU. i know my pump gets really warm so I put a fan directly over it and have it hitting the rad first. That helped out a lot.
just my 2 cents
nice build though

Why is putting the rad directly after the pump better?
