XSPC 750 240 build

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I had just ordered a xspc 750, 240 rad. I made a thread about the buy since I was so excited. But now the planning begins and I think I have a pretty straight forward build since it's a kit and my case can handle this easily.

Well first thing when it arrives, freak out and faint. So when that's done I will do a mock up build, take motherboard out and do a full mockup. Install rad and res and cut the tubing to size. Once the tubing is sized and cut I will then remove it, put it back together outside the case and jump a old power supply I have and start filling it and doing leak testing for the next day. Once I get any and all leaks taken care of and it's run over night and I fill res back up in the morning and do a couple more hours of leak testing I will then drain it. Since it fits into the case so nicely I am hoping I won't have to take it apart to put it into the case. I know the rad and cpu block just bolts on but I am wondering if the res will just slide into place on the 2 5.25" bays or do I have to unhook the res from the loop to put it in. I will likely know all this durring mock up, so I will have it all figured out before I am installing it.

So once I have it all hooked up and in the system, fill the res, then start the pump. Then just continue to fill it as the water fills the loop.

Any advice would be welcomed.

Sounds good, however I just leak test with all of the components in my case. If you have to take apart anything when you move it into the case you should leak test again, and why leak test twice? Most leaks are just a trickle that is fixed by tightening the clamp or screwing in a barb a little tighter. I just wrap some paper towel around all of the connection points when I leak test. Good luck!

I wouldn't take the risk of frying the system. So I will do the mockup without installing the block to make it easier.

You will be fine. Those steps are not necessary. If your that paranoid just remove the power cable from your psu and use another psu to power the pump and leak test from there.
