Watercooling Checklist - Page 4

Seperate Loop would require 2 pumps/Reservoirs right? If so, think I may just run a single loop.

Would you be able to draw a diagram as to how I would set that up? I would like to have the pump on the bottom and Res. screwed to a drive bay (or something like that).

...and also, thanks for keeping up with me on this post. It's helping me a lot in getting ready to make a final decision. =)

well it depends where the rads can fit. one in the top of course, but where would you put the second one? would there be room to stand it up in the bottom of the case, or can it somehow be screwed in where the exhaust fan is? or if you can fit a single 360mm rad up top that would be plenty for a cpu + gpu loop, I had a highly overclocked i7 and a ridiculously overclocked 470 on a single 360 rad for a while and got solid temps, so for a phenom x4 and a 480 you'd be fine. don't remember if you said a 360 fits up top but it sure looks like it does.
only drawback is that the second component after the rad (if you went for a single rad) would get warmer water than the first one, so temps wouldn't be as good as they could be, but it would still be plenty cool for what you're trying to do.

I was thinking that I would be able to place another 240 @ the rear(exterior) if I get two 240's. Or maybe a 120 on the bottom instead(cpu), and the 240 up top(GPU). I could also probably place a 360 on the bottom and have it standing up like you said, but that would pretty much make the case look all packed, which I'm not looking for. Maybe, maybe not....heh

Also, about the post I made before, probably a stupid question, but would I need a second pump and res if I added a loop dedicated to GPU only?

Here's a pic of some guy's Level 10 GT with 2 360's. Note that he was only able to place a 360 up top by cutting out some of the casing. Not sure if I want to do that.

Well, taking into account the performance you want and the clean interior you're going for, I think your best bet is a 120mm rad mounted at the rear exhaust of the case, and a 240 up top. Make a single loop that goes something like this:

res >> pump >> top 240 rad >> cpu >> rear 120 rad >> gpu >> res

loop order really doesn't matter for more than 1-2C difference, it'll all even out once the water gets flowing, and if you visualize where you're planning on putting the pump and res, I think that order makes for the shortest length of tubing possible, which is always a good thing to aim for. I'd expect really good temps out of that setup

with the roughly $500 budget of parts you posted a few days ago you could easily make a high quality loop with those components in it, assuming you don't go nuts on the res

off the top of my head estimates, assuming you stay away from compression fittings and stick to barbs:
good gpu block: $100
good cpu block: $70
pump: $80
res: $50
120 rad: $50
240 rad: $80
misc fittings/clamps/tubing: $40
3 GT AP-15s: $50

comes to $520, and if you shop around a bit you can probably get better prices.

Awesome man, looks good if i'm picturing it right. =) Once I feel comfortable coughing out the dough, i'll definitely let you know how it turns out. Shouldn't be to long from now. Thanks for all the help. Seriously.
