Windows 7: WaterCooling Plan (No AIO)

So...

Installed today my custom water cooling loop!

So far no probs and everything is working fine, no leaks were found.

I've use 7mm "Shroud & Decoupling" for the 120mm Fans onto the 30mm Radiator to have more of Airflow, and two others 140mm fans on Top of the case, hidden, are on extraction.

DDC Pump is PWM and plug onto CPU_FAN and have to be tuned a little with the Asus Fan XPert+

Its getting late and i'm working tomorrow all day, so i will keep you in touch soon with Temps.

Attached two pics, one when i was filling the Res Tank and the other when installed.

I haven't yet fix the Res Tank onto the Hard Drives cage and it will be about two centimeters higher than on pic.

Also the tubing (10/13mm) will be tighten a little closer to each over , those are brand new so might need time to bend at their places.

I'll post a new pic and share Temps soon.

Cheers!

I've done IntelBurn Test V2 and my CPU set to @4,3GHz - 1,224V

The results showed on pics are the second run test (used first to pre-heat). I don't know really what to think, its running cool, not above 70C. I haven't kept some similar results with my previous Aircooler. Thermal compound is only two days fresh install.

The Water Pump on Mobo CPU_Fan header is quite silent and didn't past 4000Rpm during load. Radiator fans x2 were running 1300Rpm to 1400Rpm

Temps on idle are between 27C-29C (Room Delta 19C) with the pump running an average of 2300Rpm which make it barely audible, fans running Pwm approx 1200Rpm.

Use hot water with a little vinrgar in it. Then be sure to wash it thoroughly with plain distilled water. Jack's (Layback Bear) advice is very good. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask either one of us.

If you talk about washing radiator & parts i've already done it! Residues in radiator were most of the black paint chips the others parts was dust from stock place.

I was sharing Temps!

Otherwise...
My loop is quite classical, nothing fancy or complicated!!

I've let on purpose some tubing length in case i'll be adding another 120mm radiator on rear case from the "out" pump to "in" Radiator. I've just 55mm to place it (include 120mm fan) and might have to grab a 15mm slim Fan line, in case. Will do something like a 60mm Radiator surface to cool...

The main thing is that i do not want to use smartcoil to stiff the tubing as i do not like it too much as for look...the shorter ones i could find are 10cm black mate.

It will have been overkill to take with a Pwm DDC Pump some 13/16mm tubing and harder to bend too. Could have go 10/16mm but found it too big for my rig.

I need a spacer to place between the two tubing of the waterblock to make them go straight before going to their other side input/output. But can't find one or they're do are too thin to hold strong (attached pic)!!!

Non, I'm sorry, but I really don't know what you are asking. But, try to stay awat from 90 degree fittings as much as possible. @ 45 degree fittings can help make turns much better and will help line up the tubing. For example, to make my tubing run straighter, I used a 45 on my CPU block and a 45 on my radiator which enabled me to not have to make a long bend so the tubing wouldn't kink, which is a strict no-no. With the 2 45 degree free center compression fittings the tubing run was almost perfectly straight and I have little to no flow restriction.

Your temps look good to me. Water cooling will not really give you lower idle temps. Where you will see the difference is with high overclocks that an air cooler or AIO cannot handle. You should find that a custom loop will handle it just fine. For example. On my rig I can run Prime 95 at 5 GHz all day long, and the temps will get high, but not too high. I have used a Noctua NH-D14 air cooler and a Corsair H100. Neither one of those could even come close to handling that. However, at moderate overclocks and idle, there will be little difference, some in prime, but not a whole lot. I can game for hours at 4.6 and never get over 50-55. Also, remember I live in Florida which is very hot and I am upstairs.

Thanks for respond and infos essenbe,

I was asking about a spacer between two tubing but that's a bit of quick-fix!!

I'm aware about 90 compression fitting and restricted flow...I got only one from the "In" pump and a 45 from the "Out" Pump.

I might need one or two more from the "Out" Water Block and "In" Radiator (as you described) but i would have like it more directly plug on the waterblock, that's why i was searching alternate, plus a 45 wouldn't fit onto the Radiator without a 1/4 adapter because of the 7mm "shroud & decoupling" i'm using...or an extended 45 one but at cost!

I'll see all that!

As for the Temps thanks to have let me know your setting.
I thought that will be the case for normal use...I'm at @4,3GHz everyday and i will see when my thermal compound will be ready of its fresh install if overclocking higher could help me to see what's really going on with a custom Water Cooling solution.

Non, the only other recommendation I would suggest, and you may have already done it, is to build in a means to drain the loop at any time, easily.

You mean a Drain Valve at bottom of the tubing loop for easily drain the system...

Yeah, i though about it and saw they're huge "T" sized metal x2 G1/4 and those plastic ones (not plugin ones) were so looking cheap...
