    CFM is pretty much useless, pressure is where it's at ;)

    Regardless, those fans won't be very good for rad use.

    And D, you have to realize that test was with a dual core. The differences will be much greater with a higher heat load.

    My CPU is under deep freeze tho, the rad would just be for video cards.




    Wile do you think I need those fittings? I think I do.....

    Hmmm, must've been thinking of another review.

    Anyway, yeah you should get something to connect the blocks together to make it easier. Koolance has some nice ones.

    yes they fit
    http://www.koolance.com/water-cooling/product_info.php?product_id=400

    the prob is the ID of it.. if you are using the fat boys these are quite a bit smaller ID. Also Koolance uses very few threads so if there is a bevel on the video card coolers there wont be enough threads to grab.

    (Koolance uses G 1/4" threads, lol just fewer of them)

    i figure this would be the place to ask i think i fit to BIX 240 in the front of my case would fans-rad-fans-rad-fans work?

    You'd lose some efficiency. The air will pick up some heat from the first rad, and blow thru the second rad.

    so if i did do that it would be better to run the loop through the 2nd rad 1st?

    I would not tie them together in either case, but I see what you are saying just heat up one rad two times with the last one should be the coldest and then though the system.

    It could work, you would just have to try and see.





    What do you guys think of my idea lol

    pump at 17v, then 3 gpu blocks, hits the 480 rad, then into another 17v pump, and finally going into a bay res before hitting the other pump again.

    :confused: im planning on going res.>pump>rad>blocks>pump>res. or res.>pump>blocks>pump>rad>res.

    My thought is if thats a 12V rated pump its lifespan is gonna be shortlived.

    Since one month and a half my loop is like this: res->pump->block->double rad->single rad->res

    In my case it was far better than one single rad, i won more than 8-10ºC with both together (back-to-back) in front to the usual 4-6ºC you're used to see when you change from a single to a double rad, and maybe i could run a cpu + gpu block's when i improve my pump.

    Here's how i planned the loop:

    The result with the new P45 mobo (i have to clean it all a lil bit as well as manage better the cables but this mobo is not the best for that, at least the "Pro" version):

    My thoughts exactly. Not only that, but 17V could possibly cause a bit of heat dump, negating any benefit of the higher pressure and flow.

    IIRC D5 are rated 12-24v

    IMO the added heat dump will be negligible in his situation due to the 480 RAD

    @ sirkeldon : looking good man! nice and tidy ;)

    @ coldstorm : look's like a good list, only thing's i'd change are the RAD (swiftech mcr-320) and the fitting's (DD/bitspower fatboy's). good choice of tubing it's pliabillity will make it easy to slide over 1/2" barb's ;)

    not shure if that fan controller will work with those fan's....

    my new parts list please critique

    cpu block: maze 4
    pump: MCP655 variable (already have)
    rad: hopefully dual BIX 240s (already have one)
    res: Swiftech mini-res
    barbs: Bitspower G1/4" 1/2" barbs all around
    tubing: Tygon R3400 1/2in. ID 3/4in. OD (its the black kind)

    i was also wondering is there anyway to water cool my mosfets?

    It is a 12v but they show graphs on what the pump will do at 24v. So I think that it can take the extra v to them.

    Does the extra flow lower the temps (because dosent increasing the Volts/speed also increase the heat dump of the pump)

    One other thing I am trying to figure is the faster water flows the more surface friction there is.

    It all depends on how big your run is. On smaller runs 17v could hurt you, but longer runs it could help you. If you rad is slowing the flow way down, running it faster can help temps as well.

    It's something that needs to be played with to find out IMO.
