My suggestion would be to try both ways to see which gives you the better temps.

I've probably reconfigured everything so many times in my case, the finish is popping off. This is in a case that is less than a year old! flipping the side panel fan around, I have scratched the window to deathwheee.gif It takes time and patience to get something "just right"

Okay guys i need your help with my new project called Ghetto Ice, so i need you guys to answer these easy questions because you have already handled kuhler h20 620 and somebody of you are familar with this kind of unit modding. My guestions is:

Numbers are on my scheme so you could understand what i mean.

337

1. How do i remove original tubing and howto put new tubes on it(like in h70)? because on pics i see big massive shiat on this place where pump and tubes connects, also what is the best inner diameter of tubes with this pump??? Possibly different tubes on radiator and pump for best flow/heat-transfer?

2. I bought some reservoir that is used for cars for brakes liquid for 30rub its 1 dollar in your country and it also contains small hole, so hot air could escape from reservoir. But my guestion is: Is it usefullin pc watercooling? And what is the best liquid to use in watercooling? I mean distilled water with antifreeze and anticorrosive that is used in cars good for this job? Also is it needed to have reservoir placed higher than rad and pump etc.?

3. So im asking you, what is the best small shi77y pump that is very cheap but still could help to pump the liquid? Looked at eheim 1000 but its still too big biggrin.gif

4. And finally what is THE BEST CASE for under 100e that is moddable to handle these radiators like in my scheme? I can mod the case but i dont have ub3rtools for ultimatemods.

I think these are not hard questions for you guys biggrin.gif:D:D

1) it was dicussed earlier in this thread, I believe the OD of the pump inlet/outlet's are 3/8 in.(Don't Quote me, go back and read) and are barbed PVC connectors under that plastic clip, I believe the clip could be cut away to expose the tube under it.

2) Generally, Antifreeze is mostly that, it will only get down to a certain temp, but also WILL boil. It does have anticorrosives in it, but I believe they are Electro-conductive, which is why very few people use it in computers. Had a many Thermostat Housing in my car Corrode no due to oxidation, but Electralisis. That is yet another reason (out of many) why vehicles' engines need to have ground wires.

 

As far as a pump, I was actually going to try and find a Boat Jabsco Pump and rewire it to molex and see how many AMP's it draws, Most Marine outfitters have small ones that will bail out a 12ft skiff in 10mins for like $20. Would be a fun project to cut out a large portion of a watercooled build biggrin.gif

was doing some math and research and here is the results I came up with

Swiftech MCP655-B 1/2in. Water Pump 317 Gallons per hour ($79.99USD+shipping)

yhst-39083765508394_2189_177879444


Rule 500GPH Bilge Pump (3/4in outlet pipe, submerge or mod plate for intake, $21.88USD)

once I find a Square, sealed object to use as a reservoir, it's on!

A Rule 500gph is a loud mother. Boaters don't mind because their motor drowns it out. But you'll mind.
post #1227 of 6063

No louder than the Kuhler 920 fans maxed... I think the biggest reason they are so loud is the vibration. I figured I would by a Model car display case, drill a inlet and outlet hole in it, and shove the outlet tube out the hole in the case, then simply seal the hole with 100% silcone or something of the sort.

 

Was looking at the specs of the Rule 500GPH M25D, and with 12V it only uses 1.9 amps, not bad!

I see tubes with id of 1/4 (6,5mm) are supported by pump, that guy pbu4go used 1/4 tubes and then he put 3/8 on them. And what about hole in reservoir? Is it usefull in pc wc? And you say that car antifreeze/corrosive will boil in my ghettoloop?
post #1229 of 6063

IDK about boil in this setup, but if it gets up to 250 degree's Fairenheit in a car, it boils. What Antifreeze does is it acts as a Thermal conductor so that the liquid does not freeze in cold weather. But, as a result it is also Electrically conductive as well. very much like thermal compound, you do not want liquid that is Electrically conductive near electrical parts. Any leaks and the whole setup is bricked!

 

Far as the hole in a Reservoir, I'm not sure. It's good to have a hole for filling, and also for letting air out of the system, but bad of moving things around as it could possibly leak out. I would suggest getting a cap to seal it, but for a day or so leave it open so that air can be relieved, and monitor the levels for a few days and put a line on it for cold full, and hot full so that you can tell if the levels have dropped, requiring more liquid. Just the same as maintainance with a car Liquid fluids, when you add a open part to these setups I would suggest keeping tabs on the levels.wink.gif

Is there much difference between a single GT AP-15 and push/pull AP-15 on a Kuhler 620? Can't decide if it's worth spending the extra dollars for a 2nd AP-15 for a future build.
