Custom loop design - community choice

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I am struggling to design the custom loop I will begin building in my rig. I have designed a few ideas for it but they do not really cut it. As a water cooling is mainly about looks ( in my view ) it has to look impressive and take up as much of the empty space in the case ( Phanteks enthoo evolv) as much as possible, unsurprisingly my lack of imagination has not yet produced anything which looks good. Before I give in and just go with one of my own designs I just wanted to ask everyone if the had any better ideas

i have attatched a diagram to help.

And by the way the build will be with hard tubing rather that soft.

 

also If anyone has any suggestions that make a custom loop easier, do not be afraid to say

 

thanks in advance

can you please also upload a pic of your build with everything in it except the cooling, that might be easier than the drawing :)

but what you plan on buying as components?

just sayin, the evolv has mediocre airflow so heat will be a definite issue even with water.

if you like to have inspiration, this is probably as good as it gets:

Yeah I read about people having issues with airflow but by then it was to late , the one component I have got is the case !

this video helps I had not thought of connecting the gpu and cpu in their own little loop all I need know is a way to connect everything else up to it :)

Loop order doesn't make a difference the main thing is the res to be above and right before the pump so it doesn't run dry. Only other thing is if there are directional inlets and outlets which will be marked.

I know it probably too late for you to get a new case. As an owner of this case, I'm just gonna say your gonna have a pretty bad time trying to manage the heat. That being said, I can give you a couple tips that I've learned while trying to alleviate air flow problem. Since you don't have a radiator top this won't be as big of a problem but due to the way the top rack is designed there are mounting holes cut to accommodate different sizes. But the issue is that when trying to exhaust air out the top the hot air get splashed back into the case so the solution I did was just to use some electrical tape and taped up all the holes so the hot air only leaves out the top. If you do decided to add a single top exhaust fan tape off the other fan holes.  Another issue is the front intakes. The front panel is connected using a ball and joint system and the "ball" part is connected with screws onto the front panel. What you can do is put spacers (Rubber ones would be good because they can prevent vibrations) in between the front panel and the rail for the "ball" to increase the gap making it easier for the fans to pull air in. And if in the future you decided to add a rad top you can just flip the rear fan around as an intake and buy a magnetic air filter. I hope this helps.

That certainly helps . Thanks
