Planning build, Thoughts?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP
Hi,

 

I was think about doing my first water cooled PC on my new build. So this is what I have so far...

My planning build, I have already bought some parts for this build.

 


 

The case I'm planning on getting is the Corsair 750D,  Here are some of the parts I have choisen for the build (rad, fans etc...)

 

Top rad:

Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 360mm


Bottom rad:

Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 240mm


CPU Block:

Koolance Intel Water Block:


GPU Block:

Koolance R9 290, 290x Water Block VID-AR290X:


Fans:

Corsair SP120 PWM High Performance


Tubing:

PrimoChill PRIMOFLEX™ Advanced LRT™ Bloodshed Red 3/8 ID 5/8 OD Tubing (10FT)


Fittings:


Reservoir:

?

Pump:

Swiftech MCP655


PWM Splitter:

Swiftech 8W-PWM-SPL-ST 8 Way PWM Splitter With SATA Connector


 

So I'm missing the Reservoir, Not sure what kind to get.

For the fans I might just do Push config, for the rear fan I might have it as an Intake for better airflow and also will be getting some dust filters for the rear and bottom.

All fans will be controlled my Fan Xpert 2, that is what I'm planning/hoping for. AND how would I drain my system? 

 

Loop plan:

Used Paint  because I didn't know what to use to make the diagram. First time xD



 

 

I am open to suggestions and feedback. Thanks.

Assuming you're using a cylinder res, put the run from the 4770k to the res at the bottom, not the top, this way you can fill it from the top.

And no dripping from what ive heard :)


In the grim darkness of the far future, there is only a GTX 1080, just a single 1080, where my glorious PC once stood....

For that is all I need, For the Emperor of Man, Jen-Hsun Huang, protects. We march for Nvidia, and we shall know no fear!

What about draining? Also some res have more then one top port.

I'd drain it from the lowest point, which would require the removal the bottom rad.  Once the res and pump are mounted, it'll be a pain to try and drain it from there.  Trust me on this.

Looks pretty solid, I'd consider a two 90deg fittings between the GPU and the 240

Why 90deg? Why not 45deg?

Because 2 90 degrees looks more neat than 45degs imo. I mean you could do 45 degrees, but you'd have kinda wonky runs. All personal opinion. 

I guess your right're right. But I think I only need one for bot. rad to gpu and maybe 1 for CPU to res. Which one would I get? Like the size stuff.

Well.... If you wanted to do a proper job, and probably add another 90 deg (see link) to the CPU so it looks even. You want  fittings the same diameter as your tubes and it all depends on your runs and distances. Just do a bit of addition and look at what's locally available, tweaking things to how it suits. Example: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=19382&cPath=1321

If you wanted to do things very cleanly: http://gyazo.com/6e0ebe3366fe5b8a2fb4b9dd18c67b00

you don't worry about fitting angles or buy fittings until you have the build fitted.

plans change, routing improves, hardware changes. you get the major devices,

mock the build and then adjust for extensions, angles and tubing. otherwise

you'll end up with fittings you won't need (non-returnable) and having to wait

longer to get what you really need. unless you have an inventory to work from,

you'll prolly have 2-3 fitting orders so you don't build an inventory.

 

angles and extensions really cannot be "foreseen" until the components are

fitted and route is determined. 2D/3D drawings are nice, but not the exact

materials list to go from. physical labor is needed in fitting selection.
