Thread: help the nub!




  1. #1

    Default help the nub!

    <HR style="COLOR: #000000" SIZE=1> <!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->
    Finally took the plunge and have the following components coming in:

    HW GTX480 radiator
    4 Sythe Ultra Kaze 2000rpm fans in pull configuration
    4 old 120/25 fans with insides dremeled out to use as shrouds
    Laing 3.25 pump
    XSPC res/top
    Bit power 45 degree rotaries with 1/2" high flow barbs, clamps
    Koolance V4 QDC- 2ea male/female- and labeled w/colored tape
    Tygon 3603 1/2"x3/4"- 8 feet
    primochill anti kink coils
    enzotech sapphire cpu block
    spare o rings
    silver for homemade kill coil
    custom external rad box. lined with soundproofing foam
    seperate power supply in rad box for pump and fans

    Heres the game plan ( questions are highlighted and italicized ) :

    Flush rad with hot distiiled water to clean out flux and any other particles

    Dissamble cpu block, brush pins, flush as above, reassemble, check flatness and lap if necessary ( cpu aleady lapped)

    flush res, remove pump top, install res/top

    install fittings- never done this before, lots of questions- use teflon tape? clear silicone at top of threads? how tight?

    Cut hoses to length with hose cutter- as short as possible

    mount fans, radiator, pump, power supply to rad box- mounting pump on homemade bracket on top of homemade shoggy sponge

    install hoses with silver coil in a short length of tubing- how tight should clamps be?

    fill res, turn pump on until res is almost dry, shutoff, refill res, repeat until system full

    run 24-72 hours to check for leaks, flush- how do I setup drain line or otherwise flush loop with XSPC res/top?

    refill with distiiled, repeat test cycle if necessary

    mount cpu block to motherboard ( use artic silver 5, works fine for me)

    hook quick coonects up, run loop without system powered to get air bubbles out and make final check for leaks

    Should I coat mb and video card with conformal coating as insurance against leaks? It looks to be a big project to do it right.

    Am I missing anything?
    Anything I should do differently?


    Any and all feedback is greatly appreciated

    Nothing on the threads, thats what the O rings are for, IMO small wrench snug.

    To keep from flushing you could put a cheap in line water filter in the return side of the loop with 5 micron filter, then remove it when everything is leak tested.
