hello guys,
i'm planing to buy two of the h110 closed cooler by corsair in a few in order to cool my setup wich is actually runing a am3 fx8150 + a gtx680.

i really want to replace to tubing -since i have a lianli from 2005 with reverted mobo tray-

im really into know how the tubing "fixation" works.

here's a picture


how do i get ride if this ? do i need to twist/cut/pull it ?
also witch of the tubing is the inlet and witch is the outlet?


let me know guys
thanks

and before you guys tell anything, ive already seen many post/thread that says this build is kinda worthless... but a dedicated watercooling setup is much much more expensive and i dont have that much money to put in... and this because im planning to buy a second gtx680 when price will drops. (hopefully) the one i getting is already a second hand btw...

no point in buying an inferior product anymore. Look into the Swiftech H220, with a pump that is manufactured by Swiftech, and is made to be modded and added upon without voiding your warranty or tearing your All in one apart.

So if you want to add an extra radiator for better cooling you can, and the pump on the swiftech will more than efficient at handling it.

very interesting thanks, it cost a bit (actually 10$ more) than the h110 but looks more the thing i need.
and this seems to solve my issue.

Modding a CLC to include a GPU is just a flat out bad idea based on what I've heard multiple times.

Get a proper device which actually is meant to be modded, the Swiftech is an idea.

Or you can do what I did. Get a high end air cooler for $60 for your CPU.

Mount 120mm rads to each of your GPUs with dwood's brackets from triptcc.com
for a total of $40 for cooler $10 for the mounting bracket.

Vastly superior to putting one single loop for an octacore plus two high TDP cards.

Of course, this is a case that really didn't have an optimal selection for positioning rads... messy.

Temps rarely will hit above 60C if you use CLC's on your GPUs
and you can maintain high overclocks with a $50 heatsink for your CPU

ill take some XTREM thermal pads to replace the ones provided with the vga block (kinda expensive, but im gonna overclock)

here's the loop;

the fans are gonna be between the two radiators.

do you guys validate upon this?
still... tips and advices are more than welcome, it will be my first wc setup

yeah i was at the first time thinking of this, but i want still to watercool my fx since it runs at 4.6ghz @1.44v temps are kinda high 55° at load (wprime 1024m)
i actually own a zalman cnps990max but its not enough to keep my cpu cool, although the weather is kinda warm where i live.... usually 30° room temp everyday.

AM3 and AM3+ are the same thing in terms of mounting coolers. Don't get that block for the GPU though, heatkillers are the best on the market

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16431/ex-blc-1167/HEATKILLER_GPU-X_GTX_680_Hole_Edition_Reference_Design_Full_Coverage_Water_Block_-_Nickel_Black_15521.html?tl=g30c311s1631

or

Make sure you have a reference PCB before buying a block though. If it's not a reference board you'll have to get a universal water block

If you order from pc performance, we have a rep here for them too. They also give us 5% off using our promo code which I'll PM to you

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_971_240_578&products_id=34866

If you can't get heatkiller, get aquacomputer.

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_971_240_999&products_id=34512

sandwiching fans between radiators like that will cause an increase in temps

I've not looked into many other reviews, but the H220 has not out performed the H100i in any that I've seen.

If you going custom, where is the reservoir in your list. You will need one to fill the coolant, which you will also need.

That's because the Swiftech comes with slower fans. Put faster ones on and you're good. You can also expand on it because the much better pump

there's already a tank in the h220 from swiftech, smarter choice since its designed to be implemented in a custom loop.
