Gpu block added.
Oooh Very nice!, love the colour scheme!
No ties/clamps/compressions on the GPU barbs?
Why would he need them?
7/16 tube with 1/2 barbs But I need to put some one now just for it to match the rest.
Ah, gotcha. Nice looking build BTW.
Finally ditched my old parts (camry heatercore, Cathars block and ehiem 1048)
Also grabbed the old case i had sitting around
Cable management could be better but i will wait for my perc5i to turn up.
Opinions and criticism welcome.
Finally someone who knows where to mount a rad.
None of this "cooling rad with PC air" or "Blowing rad air back into the PC"
Looks great by the way. Simple and clean. Good stuff
Neatest case here
Bahahaha, so bad its good mate
haha thanks, just don't try lanning with it, not fun.
I can't see if you have fans or not on your radiator. If you do, then you may end up getting dust and stuff blown into and stuck in your radiator unless you have some filters for your fans. I found out the hard way.
Also, with your radiator inlet/outlet on the bottom, I hope you ran your loop without the radiator screwed into your case so you could twist it (and shake it like crazy) so that the inlet/outlet would be at the highest point of the radiator to get rid of as much air as possible.
By the way, you have a nice and clean setup
mine since modding it on the weekend
details in sig
Why the massively long tube from 2nd gpu to rad? instead of just going from the bottom of the gpu straight to the rad.
id put a 45 on the rad and one on the gpu and a short piece of tube
looks like it might foul on the psu though...
Only way to get the 45 in there would be to mount it on the right, aint that the outlet?
I know my gpu block has an outlet.... Although using a 90 still maybe a kink...
They look like EK blocks so yeah, either port can be used as an inlet or outlet, on the front or back side of the card.
Getting a 45 on the bottom card would mean moving the top card's input to the right port and the link tube to the left, to free up the right port on the bottom card.
what he said ^
another reason EK rocks
yeah pretty much to sum it up....
It didnt clear the power supply with one of those 45 degree Bitspower comp fittings and I had no 90 degree ones. I did it as a totally temporary thing as I have ordered 90 degree fittings. I will have a 90 off the bottom of the card and a 45 from the radiator so I can have a nice small connecting pipe.
It should help with flow a bit I would a bit too.
I have also ordered a pump head for my 655 so I can use fittings on it. I will post a pic again once they are installed and the cable management is done.
they are EK blocks and you are right about everything you said there.
I may yet move the intake and middle tube, but only if needed as its a pain to do the connecting pipe.
