Installing a new waterblock
I am really new to watercooling and this is my first build.
My build was actually almost done because a way more experience person was helping me put together my watercooling system (only water cooling my cpu) and he just ditched me halfway through. Everything is finished (all the tubing has been cut and the radiator, the pump, etc is done, except for the water block) (I had to get a new waterblock and barbs for the build) I now have to take out the old waterblock, and replace it with my new one with the new barbs. To be honest I dont know half what I am doing now, and I would appreciate it if someone to could help me out a little bit.
PS. I have read the guides. I am just a little confused to start off on where I am right now.
Drain the fluid.
Cut off the tubing on the old CPU block.
Remove CPU block.
Install barbs on new CPU block.
Install new CPU block.
Install new tubing (or if long enough old tubing).
Add tye-wraps to secure tubing ends to barbs.
Jump-start PSU from 24-pin connector (pins 4 and 6 / green & black wires).
24 hours leak check.
What are tye wraps and how do I use them?(are they like zip ties?).
Where do I fill the fluid where is the opening located?
How do I jump start the PSU from a 24-pin connector (pins 4 and 6 / green % black wires.)? (I have no idea of what that means.)
Zap straps / zip ties / tye wraps, are all the same.
You fill the loop using the reservoir, or a fill port. If you have neither, then you have a problem.
Jump start the PSU following this guide: Guide: Jump Starting a PSU - Overclock3D Forums. Make sure the pump is connected to a Molex, and I always add a few (2) fans to add some load.
Yes I have them all. Thankyou. I will start trying to learn how to jump start a PSU :D
I just have one more question. How do i make the fluid. Like, How much coolant do I mix with how much distilled water,
and how much distilled water do I need.
It depends which coolant liquid you have.
1 bottle per liter.
do I need a liter, or more?
Depends really on the size of the loop, but unless your loop is monstrous 1 L should be more than enough.
