advice on wcing

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi oc,
so I found my old parts I used for a wc build about 5 years ago. I have a
black ice xtreme 2 radiator and a
eheim 1048 water pump
swiftech micro res

I'd like to put both of these in a case like the Arc Mini that's coming out shortly from Fractal Designs.

My question is, would I see normal temps using what I have above to cool an e5200?

If I add my video card to the loop, it'd be an ati 4850.

Also, is there a switch or a relay of some sort I can use with the eheim pump to turn on with the computer or a small switch?

I'll be trying to keep the wc setup internal, unless it just doesn't fit.

Any tips are appreciated. Thanks ocn!

@kevingreenbmx
the rad is 2x120mm

@Satogd
the cpu block that I have is a swiftech something or other. i think it fits socket 478 and 775. I'll get the model number in a couple hours. I know the id is 1/2".

I do plan on getting new wc parts, but for now I'd like to use what I can to be a bit cost effective, slowly changing out parts as I go along.

side note, my rad looks dirty on the outside, and I'm just going to assume the inside is filthy. Do I drop the rad in boiling water to clean it?

To clean the rad rinse it with water, then vinegar, then water again.

And that rad will cool CPU and one GPU if you have real strong fans on it.

As for the pump, I personally am not familiar with it, but you could pull it apart and see if it is DC pump and a converter. If it is, you could pull out the power converter and run the motor directly off of your PSU. If it is actually an AC motor I am not sure...

eheim pump
Its plugged into an ac outlet, but am not sure if it can be run on dc.

How much vinegar would I need to rinse it? a couple tblspoons, a cup, more?

Thanks in advance
