    Question Possible Specs and Question about Dual looping...

    Hi Everyone, Hope your all well?

    I'm shortly going to be taking the plunge into a new computer as mine has now stopped working and I need one for doing work on etc. First I'll tell you my possible specs then I'll ask the question.

    Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550
    ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 2048MB GDDR5 (another to be added later on in future) :cool:
    1 x Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB SATA-II 32MB
    G.Skill 4GB DDR3 HZ PC2-12800C7 1600MHz (2x2G
    Akasa AK-P085FG-BK 850W
    Asus Rampage Extreme Intel X48
    Silverstone Temjin TJ07B-W (Black)
    LG GGW-H20L Blu-Ray Rewriter & HD-DVD ROM Serial ATA Drive

    Now my possible Water cooling parts, you will have to bear with me on this as I'm new to watercooling.

    Swiftech Apogee GTZ
    EK 4870 X2 Acrylic Full Cover VGA Water Block
    2 x Swiftech Laing D5 Vario
    Swiftech MCR320-QP Triple 120mm Radiator (for the bottom)
    Swiftech MCR220-QP Dual 120mm Radiator (for the top)
    2 x XSPC Single Bay Reservoir (remove the blue LED and replace with UV LED)
    Feser One UV Reactive Coolant 1 Litre (Purple)
    Feser One UV Reactive Coolant 1 Litre (Pink)
    Tubing + fittings.

    My question is what type of tubing would I need, is this a good custom watercooling kit and how would it loop to each component? I'm guessing it be two loops which is why I have two different colour coolants but I'm not sure. I've read a few forums on water cooling and none of the ones I have found have any info on how to set up a water cooling system for so many components.

    The case would also be fitted with a front fan and the fans inside replaced with UV ones.
    Do they do fans with UV LEDs?

    Any questions, suggestions or the like appreciated.

    And yes I do know this would be expensive.

    if youre looking for two loops you'll need two pumps and two res.

    As far as i know with those pumps you can use only 1/2" ID tubing unless you buy ones with top which allow you to to mount differnet sizes of tubing. As it goes for tubing itself theres not much differnece between 3/8" and 1/2" performance wise. 1/2" are bit more bulky and are harder to route but on the other hand if you won't have pump with the top thats the only option thats lef for you.

    Yeah I guessed that I would need more or less two of everything.

    I've heard that you can put 3/8" on 1/2" connections using hot water to expand the tubing. Would this be advised or best to stick with 1/2"? My question really was weather two loops is needed and what direction / how to connect each one. I've seen flow indicators on the market is it worth bothering with them as well?

    I wouldnt go that route of heating the tubing and pushin it in. I t weakens the tubing and may cause leak..... Its simply dogdy for me

    as for routing the wc i would go such way:

    loop 1:

    pump>>CPU>>rad(240)>>res>>back to pump

    loop 2:

    pump>>gpu1>>gpu2(in the future )>> rad(360)>>res>>back to pump

    thats how i would do it. the 360 rad IMHO is needed to cool the gpu coz thos B...ards are getting hot....

    If you'll be going with more that CPU later on (ie. NB, SB, MOSFET) you might get the 360 rad for CPU as well

    Great thanks for that ill make a note, I just remembered that the mobo has a NB water block on it, where in the loop would you suggested that be best fitted? I take it the 240 is a two 120mm fan radiator and the 340 is three 120mm fan radiator. (Just checking!)

    I would suggest you the NB put after the CPU ( so CPU will get the most of the cooling

    And yes thats correct : 240mm rad = 2x120 mm fan
    360mm rad = 3 x 120 mm fan

    Great thanks for the info and the confirmation.



    On another note I've been looking through various other people's setups and have found that most people will go for blue and green, I want to be different and go for purple and pink, do you or anyone know of any fans that would suit this set up as most fans I've seen only come in the standard colours of blue, red, green. I would need a pink or Purple (uv led) fans...anyone know where i can get some??

    I've found some tubing that would be perfect!

    Feser Tube 3/8" ID - 1/2" OD UV Purple

    Now all I need are some fans!
