Just as I thought, in order to sandwich rads like this you need a high CFM fan like a Delta, etc.
Yeah... That or High RPM fans that's going to be noise as hell...

First WC loop in the works!

So I jump on board with a custom water cooling setup for a single cpu loop and I'm in need of a bit of help. So far I've got the rad and block but need help on the res, pump, and add-ons.

So far I've got a DTek V2 block and a Black Ice Xtreme II 240mm Rad. I am debating a Swiftech MC Micro res and a MCP655-B pump. For my first and only step to WC is this too much or should I go less?

I've got 1/2" barbs on the res and I'll be picking up chrome fittings all around.

My only question is mounting the rad and fans. I'm thinking of going on top of my case but I'm pretty sure I would have to cut the case. Any suggestions on mounting?

I built a system for a friend using that case, it's not bad, though he's seen my new HAF and now wants more space :)

For a 2x120 radiator, you should have enough room towards the front of the case by taking up one or two of the 5.25" drive bays. That'll mean the top of the case needs cutting for ventilation. You're going to need to get creative to fit the pump and reservoir and tubing.

The alternative of mounting above might be better as you won't need to make large cuts - all you'll need are holes to mount posts, holes for the tubing and fan wires. It'll also leave more room for the pump and reservoir.

You might also want to consider using a RadBox for mounting. You'd only have to drill holes for the tubing.

Well fellas welcome your newest member :D

This is going to be my first WC setup. Everything should be in my possession by the end of the week.

Specs:
CPU-Ror my 720B.E
Pump- D5
RAD- Black ICE GT 240
Res- Alphacool Bay Res
CPU Block- Apogee GT
All going to be 7/16TH Tygon.

GPU- For my V-Modded 8800GT
Pump -D4
RAD- Black ICE MicroII
Res- EK MultiOption Res
GPU Block- MAZE 5
All 1/2" tubing

BTW I think the D5 should provide enough juice for both Blocks, so I might just use one pump.
Im getting all my gear off of here. I'll post pics and results when I'm done.

Also will probably be asking you guys alot of questions:toast:

Laing DCC-1t pump
XSPC Laing DCC res
Black Ice GTX 360 rad
Watercool Heatkiller Rev 3 CPU block
And I'll be using 10/8mm clear PUR tubing.

For now I'll just cool the CPU, very likely add GPU and Chipset later.

Nice:rockout: In my case its more that the air cooling solution on my 4850s is actually more than good, they both don't exceed 60° C. But eh.

Have fun assembling then, I'll check out your work for sure!:cool: Feels somehow good not to be the only newbie right now:laugh:

2 4850's under 60C, thats ideal.


The 8800GT is a single slot cooling solution which is in no way helping me keep the card cool, although at 1.25V I dont exceed 72C (fan 75%), it sounds pretty annoying.

I'm hoping to be able to go up to 1.4 or 1.5V whatever gets me to 850Core, and keep my card under 50C.

BTW looking forward to seeing your results:toast:

You have to sacrifice one HS to the AIR GOD's and the WC gods will listen:laugh:



Well i looks like due to circumstances i'm only going to be running on loop for both my gpu and cpu.

Although i'm gonna have 2x Rads one BLack Ice 240 and a Black Ice micro 2x80, is there anyway to throw those 2 in the same loop? Will it do any good?

I think the D5 can handle the extra length it will add to the loop.

You have to sacrifice one HS to the AIR GOD's and the WC gods will listen:laugh:



Well i looks like due to circumstances i'm only going to be running on loop for both my gpu and cpu.

Although i'm gonna have 2x Rads one BLack Ice 240 and a Black Ice micro 2x80, is there anyway to throw those 2 in the same loop? Will it do any good?

I think the D5 can handle the extra length it will add to the loop.
There are no WC gods. Just got a mail from the store... they have troubles with the distributor from Germany, so my order will be delayed ufn. Yay.

You might also want to consider using a RadBox for mounting. You'd only have to drill holes for the tubing.

I think with my case it would either cover up the exaust fan and the vga port or my psu's fan. I'm thinking I'm going to mount it topside and drill into the case. I dont know what to do, I still dont have a pump, tubing, clamps, or a res(on its way) yet. Im gonna play with it and hopefully test it on my back up 939 set so if I jack anything up I'll be fine with it.
