Looking at a res need opinions and data

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm getting a new setup and am working on building my loop
I'd like to get opinions on the options below as well as any hard data of flow and head affects on the one res

http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/xsacdu5refor1.html
( I want to know how this one affects flow and head on my mcp655b)

http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/xsacdu5spbay.html
(I have a second pump Tt pump that came with Big Water 745i so dual loop is an option)

I'll be cooling an i7 950, and a rampage III Extreme as well as a GTX580
(CPU is gonna have Apogee GTZ GPU: EK-FC580 R3E: EK-FB RE3)

If I go single loop all 3 components will be on my MCR-360 Rad and MCP-655B pump

If I go dual loop I'll put the CPU and GPU on the 655 and 360 with the motherboard on the Tt pump and Tt 120 rad.....

Do not go dual loop. It's a complete waste of rad.

The XSPC Bay res for the D5 is going to increase flow/head of the pump. You won't get the same gains as the XSPC D5 pump top though.

A single MCR360 is enough for your cpu+gpu+mobo, and your mcp655-B will have a flow rate above 1GPM even with your restrictive cpu & mobo blocks.

Just ensure you pick some good fans and, if possible, go push/pull on your rad. You should have some good temps.

Thanks... I should have mentioned I am using 6 fans on the rad push/pull

Good to know about the dual loop I didn't know how much flow I would lose pushing through all those components

I personally have this one
http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/xsacdu5refor1.html

I love it
xspc makes great stuff and it works great
bleeding the air is a little time consuming as I said in my review when this rad first came out
You wont go wrong with this res
the ek spin is also nice as well as the new koolance 655 1or2 pumps and 1 or 2 loop res (its configurable as needed) but with a 120.00 price

Excellent! thanks for the info I think that's the one I'm gonna go with....
I had been worried about the acrylic cracking or it killing the pump....

I've always had trouble finding a suitable mounting location.... and I refuse to spend money on a case.... yeah I know... but my 15+ year old full tower is great 5x 5.25 bays and 6 internal 3.5 bays plus a removable mobo tray
Oh I forgot the best part..... IT WAS FREE

I have my rad mounted in the top of the case (sides and top off) and having the pump at the front is horribly ugly and having it at the back I had to take off the stand and shove it in sideways which makes me use a foot of extra tubing in a U shape for the intake.....

and ANYTHING has got to look better than my 2" Diameter PVC with end caps glued on and tapped holes for barbs.... it's UGLY.... might post some pics soon.... everyone needs some entertainment lol....
