BUMP - My $300 Dual Loop :) - First Time Watercooling - PLEASE HELP

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
ALERT: FIRST TIME WCer HERE!!!

My rig:
Amd 1090T
Asus Crosshair IV Formula
4gb DDR3 OCZ Platinum 1600mhz
Ati 4890 XFIRE
Sparkle Gold 1000w
1tb Samsung F3
CoolerMaster 690 II Advanced

Watercooling loop:
1) Thermaltake PWB100 CPU Waterblock
2) EK 4890 full cover blocks Acetal/Nickel
3) Black Ice GTS 240 Dual Radiator x2
4) XSPC Clear 5.25 Inch Split Dual Bay Reservoir
5) Pumps MCP350 x2
6) PrimoFlex Pro LRT UV Blue 12feet
7) 8x120mm Yate Loons 1300RPM
8) 8x Bitspower 3/8 fittings
9) 4x Gelid UV Blue 120mm
10) Aerocool V12XT
11) Dual Black/UV Cold Cathode Kit
Total: a little less than $300

ALL watercooling parts have been bought ^^ brand new (thanks to Crazy PC 50% off) - any problems please let me know

WCing plan:

2x240 rads internally mounted in the CM690II in a push/pull config

2 seperate loops -
1 for cpu
1 for gpus


Questions:

1) Also do I need 45 degrees or 90 degrees or special fittings? Or are these just for the aesthetics? And instead can I just bend the tubing instead?
2) Can a Black Ice gts 240 rad with yate loons (1350rpm push/pull) take on 2 ati 4890s OCd?
3) should I go for a single loop or a dual loops?
4) If I added another ati 4890, would it be best to go for a single loop?

5) is this how it sould look: res - pump - rad - gpus - res
or res - pump - gpus - rad - res

seems appropriate to me. I didnt use any clamps on my tubing because it was a tight enough fit. Been running 2 months leak free

but do I need clamps? and more fittings?

all of the blocks come with fittings I beleive, so do I need anything else?

Thought I would post my feedback:

Maybe the RASA cpu block over thermaltake. One loop is better imo specially for your first. but you have the split res so meh its up to you.

Just a few minor things.
-Why the Thermaltake you can get a RASA Cpu block for like the same price and it performs much better.

-GPU blocks are good.

-GTS res are ok but the GTX are better if you can fit them also the RASA rs/rx are good too for a low noise build.

- Res is good.

- You will need 2 pumps though one for each loop

-Tubing looks good

- Just make sure that the thread size matches up with that components thread size most are 1/4". Also make sure the ID of your tubing matches the barb size.

Just need Fans/PT Nuke or Kill coil from what I see maybe some clamps or go compression fittings if you can afford them.

reason for components is Crazy Pc 50% off Closing Down Sale

they has the XSPC Rasa but it sold out very quickly (it was down to $22) so I went with the Thermaltak cause it is also $22

The pumps that went down to $40 are all sold out so I'll need more of those

So maybe I should go for one loop?
