    Default Need Advice Please!! (Project)

    Hello all,

    I'm a newbie to the forum, but not the hobby. I won't go in and bore you all with my old PC modding days way back when. However, I am in a bit of a dilemma on which direction to go with my new water cooling setup.

    PC Specs:

    Processor: Intel i7 4790K
    <br>Motherboard: Asus Z97 Deluxe
    Memory: I haven't decided yet
    Video Card: Asus Radeon R9 295/X2
    PSU: EVGA SuperNova 1200 P2
    Case: Nanoxia Deep Silent 6

    Any who I have been debating between single vs dual loop. Now, the only reason why is I plan on Water Cooling the follow: CPU, GPU's, North &amp; South Bridge &amp; Memory is a possibility but leaning more and more against it.<br><br>My parts list for the project:

    Koolance QDC or Lok-Seal Kit
    KOMODO R9 LE - For GPU's
    MCRx20-XP - Triple Fan - I would like a Quad Rad, but not sure if my case has the space.
    Koolance 380 Water Block
    Reading Pro's &amp; con's on the Res w/ built in pump or get it with an additional pump in parallel

    So now I have presented everyone with information on to the fun stuff the design. Now, I have a few drawings I just haven't scanned them to the PC to post so I will try and explain. I like to take a methodical approach to most things I do. I have two spots in my case where I could potentially place my Rad(At top like most do or on bottom).

    So the reason for my dual loop design was of the few things I wanted to cool. I just figured with the Video Cards being so huge, they could be on their own loop. Which I know could be a disadvantage within itself especially if I under power it. Now I could do a separate Rad for the Video Cards since I have the room, but I need to make sure that I have enough fans to move the heat generating from two Rad's out of the Case efficiently. I was thinking I could do the possibly push/pull effect if I went with a two Rad setup but again I'm not an expert just thinking it out logically.

    So if I potentially did a two rad setup, would you guys advise that I have at least two pumps and one Res? So I could get the Maelstream V2 Res/Pump for CPU, NB & SB, then get a separate pump for the GPU's?

    So after typing this and working at the same time it seems like a single loop would do the trick and keep life simple for me. So my question next is with the water cooling parts listed above do you think I would be very effective keeping all the parts nice and cool do should I add something else for piece of mind.<br><br>Thank you all in advance for the assistance.

    Crush

    PS. I know nothing really has changed from a lot of the NB &amp; SB so could MC30 or is there a site or vendor that may specialize in ASUS chipsets?<br><br><br>

    Welcome. I'm going to go with a single loop on mine, (coming up soon) but it's just a pair of GTX-680s and an i5-4790 CPU.

    A single loop would indeed keep it simple and probably work well.

    Thanks Realneil, I'm definitely leaning towards single more now, but I want to see what others have experience as well.

    Good read. That review makes me feel good about the choice I made with the case. Do you by chance have any larger pics of your rig. I have a few questions but I wasn't able to see everything clearly so I just wanted to be sure I saw what I think I saw if that makes any since.

    Thanks in advance.

    The picture was difficult to see to really say. I saw RAD at top of the case was using six 120mm fans correct in a push pull setup?

    Now the smaller RAD that was against the 2.5 bay. Was that just two 120mm or do you have that one sandwich as well?

    I couldn't tell how many pumps you were using either. I will say I like the fittings you were using with the tubes. Which one are those?

    Yes you are correct although my 360 with 3 fans was not in a push pull, there is a picture of a 360 in a push pull showing it mounted under the shroud
    The smaller 240 Rad is in fact sandwiched and set up in a push pull configuration in my build
    and yes only one D5 pump being used and fed by the bay reservoir,if you're thinking of doing a push pull up top
    I would recommend that you use a thinner rad to clear the motherboard. Although I have changed cases I am still running my top 360
    with one set of fans now in a push only, really dont need the push pull it will not make a significant difference in my temps to do so.

    the fittings are a mix of Koolance and bitspower 5/8 OD 1/2 ID

    Where did you pick your your Airplex Rad? Also did you have any issues installing it with the Deep Silent 6 Case?
