Couple of Q's regarding first time WC.

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Sitting here and is about to rig up a WC for the first time i got the EK Multioption X2 Adv, Swiftech Apogee GT EX, MCP655, MCR320 and got some Q's. Have read most of the starting threads and they are great.

- Can i use any port as a outlet / inlet, or is there some guidelines to follow. Thinking about having a fillport and the inlet at the top, and then a temp sensor on one side of the bottom and the outlet on the bottom strait down.

- What does the anicyclone do, and should i use it?

- How does this order sound. Rad on the top --> down to Res --> Down to Pump - Over to Cpu block --> Up to the Rad (Rad -> Res -> Cpu -> Rad)

- The cpu block (Swiftech Apogee GT EX) came with plastic barbs, i want to change these to metal ones. The treading on the metal ones are alot shorter then on the plastic, will this be a problem?

Thanks.

anticyclone stops whirlpool from happening in your res.

only thing that matters is the res and pump, res before pump

- which port you use the barbs on is really just a matter of how you want to route your tubing and spacing I don't believe it has an impact on performance unless there is something specific to the block/part

- anti-cyclone as someone else mentioned is just to stop excessive swirling occurring in your res so if this doesn't happen you don't need one.

- that order sounds fine, order from what I've read and tested does not effect performance as long as you have the res before the pump

- the shorter threading is fine as long as you make sure you've got some teflon tape on there and a the o-ring has enough pressure from you torquing the barb down to create a seal.

Ok, Thnx. Will ofc run this outside the case for some hours to look for leaks.

- I'm planning to run 6 Scythe GT-15 in PushPull through a fan controller, best would be to have all 6 on one channel. I cant find more than 1 to 2 3-pin splitters here in Norway. Is it OK to use a 5 of these splitters to splitt 1 3-pin to 6, limit on the channel is 30W so that is no problem.

All 6 fans on a total would be under 10W.
