Ok, noob question. How should the loop be setup?
Just want to make sure.
I already answered his question on MSN. ignore it.
Welcome to the club
You should of picked up a GTX E.
Just make sure that the reservoir is higher then the pump. How you design your loop is up to you (based on your PC Case).
For me, I have my video card and CPU water blocks going to the rad then reservoir then pump.
What do you thing ?
blocks D-TEK v1 GPU and CPU, Chipset Swiftech MCW30
Rad Blk Ice GTX480
pumps Laing D5 Vario/Swiftech MCP655
There's always room for improvement.. Plus I like the design of the radiator I bought and it was a good price.
True they are a good buy.
Erocker, it's a great set-up. You'll like it for what you have told me your going to do. I just hope you make a project log of it! that would be stellar!
Welcome to the club erocker!
Great setup for starting to W/C!!!
my waterblock and res are here i cant wait to set it all up
So I finally talked you into, eh? lol. As for coolant, I just use straight distilled water. It still cools the best.
getting ready to set the rest up maybe tomorrow it will be finished asssembly wise
The great part about having a meanwell
Leak testing where you should be leak testing at.
nah, you just wanted ot show us your bathroom... for some godly reason..
I really don't want to see that again!
Now on the thing at hand.... how's the testing and set up going???
No leaks it appears. Going to test for a while tho. DangerDen sent me two cracked plexi glass blocks(I got them for free, for overclocking(well I have to use them and show them off). I think they sent me the ones they couldn't sell. So I'm making sure that they are not leaking 100%.
Getting the bubbles out before I crank 17v to the pump.
Sweet. throw me a pm when you get that thread up and running! I'd like to see the monster in business.. lol..
Nice, bubbles... I need a girl to get that out of my head now!
Is there a chance they have Delrin versions? (acrylic is the worst material for H20 stuff)
I'm just guessing what it's made of.
I really don't know.
No leaks still.
Glad on the no leaks..
the clear tops are Acrylic, its the cheapest plastic to use/mfg.
(Quote from DD site "Acrylic Top")
I notice on the new 260/280 tops they use a smoke Acrylic (Lucite, same stuff just different name) piece as well.
(this is not gust to pick on DD, any top that is clear may be acrylic)
wow thats alot of volts!
I tried and tried and tried to get a stable a 4ghz, but even up to 1.7 volts I could not achieve it, and with the temps right now Im running my Q at 3Ghz & 1.2V, with the whole water setup, core temps still reach mid 50's with this damn heat!
One of the video cards are leaving today, and hopefully another soon(buy it!), and Im not putting the new vc's on water, they just add toooo much heat for a single loop in the summer. If they were on a seperate loop, no prob, but i only have one.
you could try a bigger res
something like that
You just pimping your water bottle res!
hey I prob could use a larger rez, expect I have NO WHERE to put it, it would have to be external and I have had enough with whats outside the case already.
I am currently using a single 5.25 bay rez, and i really dont like it, its a pain to bleed, it sucks air from time to time, and its been nothing but a headache!
I only have 1 5.25 bay open, so I cannot use a double bay rez, and there isnt much more room to put one, any ideas??
