Is my loop setup correct in my 800D?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Ok so i finished my loop a few days ago which was my very first time water cooling. Now it works well, but i thought i'd double check that i have everything in the right order and so on?

It's not the prettiest loop, but i'll be doing a full rebuild when sandy bridge (just keeping PSU and case) is released so i'll clean it up then

Ok sounds good. I have been reading on the net that some people say you should have the radiator after the pump, but i can't really see how thats possible in the 800D or why that would help temps at all?

One small thing i noticed though. The tubing that goes down to your pump is quite long. You might want to shorten it a bit

The only thing that matters in the loop order is to have the res before the pump and higher than the pump. That way it wont run dry. I got my 3 rads after the pump and it works fine. Loop order is all about your case. Try to keep the tubing short and simple.

Why don't you turn the Rasa upside down so it wont cross tubes..

Hi,

I would say

Pump -> Rad -> CPU -> Res -> back to Pump

this is because the water goes into the rad which gets cooled and at that point the water/coolant is the coldest point, which then goes to cpu block.

i would do the above in my 800d with gpu cooling added after cpu.

This ^^^ plumbing is a bit excessive, shorten as best as possible.

Read Desert Rat's post, order does matter for the rad, before or after the blocks will have little to no impact (talking about 0.001 something C).
