Help me re-route please? [PICS]

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi

Im having a bit of trouble with my WC set up. It just isnt how I would like it.

You can see the tube from WB to pump has to be so long, it's sitting ontop of my NB, and it's making the water,really hot/warm.

I have a little spare tubing, and some 45 degree, straight short stubbys.

How do you think I could get it so that it is shorter, and not getting heated up?

The 45 may work, you should be able to turn it so it faces the pump, shortening the tube and pulling it away from the NB.

I would get rid of the 90's on the CPU block and do way with the T-line as well.

pump outlet to rad>CPU>pump. I don't see a res in those pics.

Is that fan in pull on the rad? Should perform better if you move it around inside in push/exhaust.

I need the T-line for a fillport = (

The fan is in pull from the outside

I can't get a fan on the inside of the Rad because the 90's on the Rad are blocking it, althought I could switch the fan around so it pulls air from the inside of the case.


Is it possible that my Radiator may be able to work upside down at all?

I feel ripped off with this tubing, it sucks for turns, does anyone know any tubing that would get me to be able to do some real tight turns?


I'm trying to keep off the 45's because they leak if you put pressure on the pipe, or bend the pipe near the 45's.

It happened when they were on the CPU =/



Last question:

I have an AP-14, to my knowledge a ScytheSlipstream/ stealth / 12mm fan will work inbetween the 90's and the radiator, would this hurt the life of it because of the GT-15?

Or would 2x 12mm fan be better than one GT-15 / one GT-15+12mm?

I also don't want to make another thread, but what do you think about WC the GPU that I have?

Stock voltages GPU, Intel i3 530, lowered Vcore.
Asus 6850.

All that on a Single 120mm radiator? What do you think?

Id say no, atleast a 240 for a cpu and gpu loop.

You can have your rad turned anyway you want. Its just generally easier to bleed at the bottom.
As for the tubes. It looks like you got thin walled 3/8 hose (3/8x5/8)
You can do MUCH tighter bends with 3/8x1/2. The wall is twice as thick.

Damn really?

Not just a single chance that I can get away with it?

Literally, I really would love to do it.


Any opinions on the two slim fans vs one Gentle Typhoon

I had two of these in mind:

Let me check what tubing I have

Edit:

http://specialtech.co.uk/spshop/cust...at=1233&page=1

10mm, to 13mm outer. ( 1/2" )

Looking at both, 5/8 and 1/2 OD and they all have 3mm wall thickness.

Yes you want the fan exhausting heat out of the case.

Primoflex Pro LRT tubing bends very well, I have the 1/2"ID x 3/4"OD that has 1/8" thick walls. It holds it's shape very well even with tight bends. The 7/16"ID x 5/8"OD PrimoFlex over 1/2" barbs would relieve you of any leak concerns but I can't vouch for it's bendability.

You definitely don't want 12mm fans because they have too low CFM and practically zero static pressure. Even if you get one with decent CFM, they are super loud and still produce little static pressure.

Havent done any heat wattage calculations but a CPU and GPU on a single 120mm rad sounds wrong. I guess it depends on what you plan on doing with the computer and how often the CPU and GPU will be putting out max wattage.

I have been searching on the PRO LRT, and it looks very good I will get that.

I'll stick with the GT 15 fan too. And possible buy a second if something happens.

I did some calculations of my wattage and:
GPU , CPU at stock = 157 watts
GPU, CPU@current Volts =141watts

I'm not a big overclocker/stress tester, all I do is play BFBC2 which gets full gpu load and about 70-80% CPU load.


I'm running Prime95 now,and I'm getting

between 28-31C Core0
between 30-34C Core1

Idle My temp sensors don't work... they say 14 core0 and 19 core1

This is in a Ambient Temp of 20C
Air out is 25C.

Takes about 4-6Seconds for the CPU to go to 15C core 0 and 22C core1 when I just unloaded Prime95.


Pump Idle 1000-1080 RPM, load is 1410-1450 RPM.
Without and Voltage control the pump gets upto about 2200 RPM.

Think I can handle a 6850 on top of this or not?
