Custom loop components check

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm going to WC my rig (AMD 2700X and GeForce 2080 Ti) and I have the following components. Before I'm ordering I would like to have a second opinion. My goal is to get it as quiet as possible, so I can improve please tell me.

 

It's going into a Corsair 1000D.

 

  • EK-Vardar EVO 140S BB (500-1150rpm) (x3)
  • EKWB - CLC  EK-CoolStream CE 420 (Triple)  
  • EKWB - CLC  EK-XRES 140 Revo D5 PWM (incl. sleeved pump)  
  • EKWB - CLC  EK-Supremacy EVO AMD - Nickel  
  • EKWB - CLC  EK-Vector RTX 2080 Ti RGB - Nickel + Plexi  
  • EKWB - CLC  EK-Vector RTX Backplate - Black  
  • EKWB - CLC  EK-DuraClear 9,5/12,7mm 3M RETAIL  
  • EKWB - CLC  EK-ACF Fitting 10/13mm - Black (x8)
  • EKWB - CLC  EK-CryoFuel Clear (Premix 1000mL)

 

Thanks!

Little (maybe stupid) question.. I assume that you always need fans? I was thinking of maybe adding a second rad so I don't need to mount fans on it and completely cool it passively.

 

I was going to add an extra T fitting at the end of the pomp so I can drain it there.

your components run too hot to cool completely passively .. in most cases, a passively cooled pc it done with low to mid grade components that are undervolted/underclocked

 

only comments i have on your loop are:

-add a bigger reservoir tube

-for sure add drain and fill ports

-possibly switch the vardar fans for nf-a14's or the cromax flavor if you don't like brown

Yes, you need fans. You would need a lot of radiators for you to passively cool a 2700X and 2080Ti especially once they are under load.

As long as you have fans on the first one that should be fine. However, 280mm rads don't cool that much passively, maybe like 50W or so. If you do it, it'll be almost exclusively for looks, not performance.

Drop the pomp/res combo and buy them separate?

The 1000D is such a stupidly large case that your pc is going to look minature unless you fill it up with fat radiators and big reservoirs...

 

Even my 900D build with four graphics cards and lots of radiators still look like you can rent it out to a single student for 500 euros a month

you could do that, i was thinking if you wanted the pump/res combo just swap the 100mm tube for a 200 or even 350mm long tube .. personally I don't like the look up separate reservoirs and pumps unless the pump is hidden in the basement

A few 90 degrees fittings, a T splitter, a rotary male to male adapter or 4 more compression fittings, a simple male to male adapter, a drain valve with a plug. Probbably EK multiport res top might get helpfull in this case get a internal res tube. It will not be a problem to fit all you components into you "rather small case"  but get a pen and paper to plan your loop. It must have a drain port and a fill port. Sometimes it is easier to have return to the res at the top of the res. And 200mm or even 300mm res tube is a must for this case.

Ok, thanks.

 

We put an update here with the list when I have everything.

Seems like most of your questions were answered already. Once you have the parts list together, I'll be happy to double check it for you, too :)
