im sorry i sent you a pm back when i got finished setting up and leak testing. thank you for this great guide. as someone else stated, there is more info in 1 post from you than you can find and read in a week of googling.

flaneur, loop order doesnt matter, temps will equalize and the temps will differ about 1*C throughout the entire loop. just remember to put the res right before the pump and dont let the pump dry dry.
fan wise, if you plan to run the ap181s at slow to mid speed only, use pull. if you plan to go high rpm, use push. thats according to a test review by martin for push vs pull. personally, i would just use push, those are killer spec'ed fans. remember to use a VERY good fan controller. silverstone rates them at 15.6watts at full speed

That is great to hear I tried to make this an all in one water cooling guide that has info on what is what cooling, as well as having videos to go along with it, suggesting parts, and showing comparisons between rads,cpu blocks, and etc smile.gif

If there is any new info that you think I missed let me know.


Also sorry for the late reply I've been busy and now I am in the process of moving.

So I need to fill my rad with Alcohol before putting it in my loop? Or can I boil distilled water and put it in my rad and shake it?
post #154 of 754
you can boil tapwater if you rinse it out after that with distilled. thats what i do. actually i just use hot tap water. out water heater is set to max high.

Okay any reason why it has to be hot? Also will I need to let it dry?
post #156 of 754
hot water will soften and loosen the flux and any other crap that may be in the rad. you dont 'have' to let it dry. its going to be wet when its filled isnt it?

oh and juggalo, good luck with the move. i hope you enjoy your new home. pics or it didnt happen, lol

Yeah,
You don't have to let it dry after you got out all the flux and rinse it with distilled if using hot tap water. I just use distilled water for the whole process.

Hi there wonderful OCN community, I need some guidance about my WC loop.

Im new in the WC area. I built my WC rig 9 months ago and It has been pretty solid. I used NANOXIA HyperZero RED UV Coolant. Look this is read from the bottle:

“HyperZero Unique composition of a very efficient, long-term corrosion protection and a special UV-active fluorescent dye is the perfect choice for all PC WC systems. HZero was designed for closed cooling circuits to prevent corrosion of all cooling materials (eg. copper, aluminium, brass etc.) HZero is almost scentless and does not harm tubes ir synthetic materials. Contains no glysantine/glycol and has no negative impact on cooling performance. For optimum corrosion protection, add HZero undilated to the WC circuit.”

Well I hope all the stated above is true. Whats your opinion?. I Have all copper-brass: XSPC Razor Full HD7970 blocks, Swiftech Apogee XT block, copper radiators, fittings.

How often should I flush my WC loop?. I haven’t done it yet, and Im pretty scared about corrosion. I have read a review about corrosion here: http://martinsliquidlab.org/2012/01/24/corrosion-explored/


Thank you all.thumb.gif

I state this Under Maintenance.
I don't use coolants., most of them/ not all will stain your blocks,tubing and etc.

Well for the most part I am done moving. Not saying where.
I will be going through this guide to see if anything I can add. I think for the most part it is a pretty solid guide( I know it is not perfect)

If anyone has any suggestions let me know and I will take it into consideration.

Just realized that this guide has 66,518 views thumbsupsmiley.pngcheers.gif
