Help me decide on Colour Scheme and loop Layout please - 800D.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I would really appreciate some help with my new Sandy-Rig, I have finally taken the plunge and decided to welcome a new rig into this New Year.

Spec of choice:

Corsair 800D
Asus P67 Pro
Intel 2600k
8GB Corsair Vengeance
EVGA 570GTX (single for now but will add another in a month or so)
Creative X-Fi Extreme Music
60GB OCZ Vertex 2 (might be adding a second for RAID)
300GB Velocity Raptor
2x 1.5TB WD Greens
BeQuiet 1200Watt PSU
2x LG Optical Drives

Cooling parts currently owned:

Thermochil PA120.3 RAD
Swiftech MCP655
D-Tek Fuzion (775)
Danger Den Fill port Res
Masses of Fans, Ones to mention, 3X 120mm Panaflow that have been on my RAD, 4 new Thermaltake 1300RPM Silent things and a pile of other branded 120mm.


Ok, my idea is this, I was torn between dual loop, CPU loop1 and GPU1,2 on loop 2, but now I think I will go down the route of a single loop but dual RAD, my PA120.3 mounted on the existing roof space, and a dual RAD in the bottom, will remove the HDD Cage and mod the case, ideally I don’t want loads of clutter in view so I would like as little going on as possible. I was hoping for Pump > CPU > RAD > GPU1 > GPU2 (to be) > RAD > Pump... Having the second RAD in the base now seems a little silly as ill be going from my CPU Past the GPU to RAD 2 and then back again, any ideas here? I could get a single RAD and mount it on the Exhaust fan space?
What do I do about drainage and a res? Are these drive bay res’s any good? Should I stick with a T-Line?

Help me out chaps, Please

Also, I am in serious need of a colour scheme, I don’t want to be using DYE again, so I’ll be going for solid colour tubing (3/8” ID tubing and 1/2” barbs) and will be braiding all of my cables too.
Being a nicely finished black case, I was thinking Orange and White, Orange like the Focus ST Orange (a bit sad but I love my car )and then I was thinking about keeping things simple, having all my cables, tubes and fan fins white? OR....? Throw some ideas please.

Many Many thanks.
PS, I’ll be keeping a build log for any work I do.

This is the train-of-thought I went through. I had two goals: loop efficiency/tidiness (least tubing), meaning I wanted to stay away from mounting a radiator at the bottom. Secondly, I wanted more air intake than just the bottom. However mounting a radiator at the rear means no rear intake, so I bought a LIAN-LI 3-bay intake fan module for more intake. Along with cooling the case it helps cool the pumps located directly in front of the fan.

My 360 and 120 radiator do more than enough to cool my two GPUs and CPU.
