Cant find any Ek H30's in Aust, so diff tubing is the go?
yeah that will do trick the stock pump cant handle too much i ended up going
So you just built the kit yourself and replaced pump and res? i will only be cooling the cpu with this
www.gammods.com.au sell them. None in stock until the 6th is all.
www.pccasegear.com sell them as well.
( It's and O as in Octopus not a zero )
Wow so PCCG has it but look at that price, is it worth it?
The PCCG is almost exactly the same price as it is at EK's online store. I assume GamMods is only selling it slightly cheaper for pre-orders.
All you would need on top of it would be distilled water. Assuming all the parts are decent >.>
yup if its just cpu stock pump will be fine, tho sometimes a lil noisy!
Ok so now im torn between waiting for the EK h3o or buying the XPCS kit right now? hmmmmmmmmm
Knowing this industry, by the time the kit is available at gammods a better kit will be the same price but will no be arriving until the week after.
I'm trying to decide between the 2, one is $140-150 cheaper than the other, but cant seem to find any proper reviews on the EK h3o, it does look the goods!
DO A REAL LOOP!
Scotty dont even talk to me until you go phase cooling, until then you cant lecture me
would if i had spare moneys + basic watercooling loop maxes out a 2700k anyway hahaha
Would it affect a loop much if I were to use right angle joints all over the shop instead of slight bends?
My plan is this: (you'll have to use your imagination in regard to the Z-axis)
It uses a Koolance RP-452X2 res and 2 PMP-450S pumps to give you an idea of where the tubing runs in respect to the z-axis. (loop 2 is on the pump closest to the open panel in the diagram)
I don't really want to use angle fittings between the cpu and mobo blocks but everywhere else i want the tubing to go in a straight line.
Judging from that pic you are going push/pull....
Push pull for that many fans is a fucking huge waste of money for a 2-5% increase in cooling power.
I have the money. So i figured why the hell not.
I only plan on doing push fans on the internal 420 rad
large amount of wealth and your using that fugly case.....
Hello Mr. insensitive.
Well I think it's beautiful.
nope, it takes about 30 hard 90 fittings to raise the cpu temp 1deg.
its more like 20% but still a huge waste of money, space and eardrums imho
ignore copie..hes just a grumpy old man
you should probably start your own thread asking for advice on ur build..
but why go for something so big and complicated for ur first loop?
Doesn't matter. Had fans.
