Case: Thermaltake Level 10 GT
CPU: 3930k - cooled by a Cooler Master Eisberg 240L (which means I also got a 240rad already)
GPU: Three GTX Titans

planned water loop and flow path

*I'm thinking I might be short on radiator, maybe I'll add another at the 140mm exhaust? I'm not after the maximum overclock though, just silence - so maybe this is enough

parts on my list

haven't counted how many yet, will do that when I get home

this will be my first water cooling adventure with computers, but I work with high-pressure/high-flow systems at work on a much larger scale than this, so I think I'll manage just fine. also means you can use technical flow terms without confusing me

I'm waiting on my motherboard RMA so if the budget allows, I'm considering ordering the parts and making the jump (no better time I say)

thank you very much for reading redface.gif
thank you even more if you provide input

Links are great if someone needs to check something but adding component names would save potential participants from RSI and get ya more answers I think.

I had a dual pump bay res in my original plan but was concerned about the noise.

What RPMs ya fans at .....Look at the bar charts here regarding Rad choices. Sr1 looks good at 600 rpm.....but drops off as rpm's climb

The general guide for rads is one 120mm rad for every component then plus one. From what I see in your links you have only three rad "space". I would recommend at least 6 since its all crazy high end and it accounts for any overclock you do.

You don't need to spend that much on a pump/bay combo. If you want the redundancy of a second pump I'm sure you could find something else. No one needs two pumps unless you want to do an external rad and have the tubing go in the next room to be quite.


On a side note I'm happy to see your an evo fan. So am I, I just don't have one yet.

I'm just leaning towards the 5.25" pump/res combo for space savings, though now that you point it out, maybe 3 pumps is a bit overkill. I'll keep looking for options, but I'm conscious about space since I'm already a bit short on radiator space (and want to avoid dealing with buying another case)
