First LOOP PICS 56k warning

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Here we are. My very first loop. It's a rasa 750 x240. I had to MacGuyver the rad, xspc doesnt give you enough screws to mount 4 fans in push pull, so there is only 2 screws holding each fan on 1 in each corner. good enough i guess.

Let me know what you guys think. I probably should have cut the tubing a little shorter, but this being my first kit I wasn't expecting it to come out perfect. This is more of a practice run then anything.

1 1/4" 6-32 screws will serve you well my friend! The right length to go through a grill, 120mm fan and into the res. Looks good, how are the temps?

/edit

Was there a reason you could not mount this inside?

no reason. i though about internal mount and decided to do it on the top. this being my first loop, it didnt come out perfect. took me almost an hour to figure out how to mount the radiator.

hey speaking of which, how do you drain a loop? is there any one right way to do that? if its not too much trouble i may redo this, and mount the radiator internally. i think it might look alot better that way.

edit: also temps are good. not what i expected. but they are still better. about 5-10c drop on load temps compared to my noctua nh d-14.

Seeing as how you have that long piece of tubing looping back around to your radiator, bleeding should be pretty easy. Cut the piece of tube that comes from the inlet of pump, on the section of it that lies outside the case. Most of the water should be able to be drained through that hose, and you can subsequently disconnect the radiator and continue the process.
