very very informative! thanks TS!..

im planning to go to WC now and i need all the infos that i can get. i just have a question though, why dont use dye? since i see alot of people (well here in my country) that uses dye on their rigs and it actually looks cool. what is the performance degradation of this? or even the danger of this?

TIA! cool.gif

I "think" dye ends up discolouring your components. Not 100% sure on this just going by what I have read on the internet. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Great writeup it will definitely help me attempt my first watercooled build smile.gif

Many say that after time the dye separates from the water and builds up in components such as your gpu/rad/cpu block and damages them or as stated they can stain components as well. Some people have good luck and have none of these issues others have these issues that take an extended time and a lot of effort to clean or are even forced to buy parts.

In the end it is your choice but most people opt for uv tubing and distilled water so they need not worry about these issues.

You want pump/res > rad > cpu > rad > gpu > pump/res
or pump/res > cpu > rad > gpu > rad > pump/res really they are the same set up although the first might give you better temps. I set up mine like the first one.

Just a quick paint sketch for set up 1

grazz.png

Pump/res to rad top
rad top to cpu block
cpu block to rad bottom
rad bottom to gpu
gpu to pump res

edit: For a much cleaner loop you can go pump/res > rad top > cpu > gpu >rad bottom > pump/res should give about the same temp readings with less tubing dont know why I didnt think of it in the first place.
