Default First time getting wet 600T build log

few more parts arrived for my wc build and rest will *hopefully* arrive tomorrow according to can post tracking.

this is my current set up

i can't put gpu on first slot because supposedly with this mobo 2nd slot is for single gpu setup with dummy plug on 1st slot to make it run at 16x







I have MCP35x just picked up from ncix, just planning where to mount it, I think I'll mount it on the side of HDD cage with outlet pointing up towards 5.25" bay to bay res here's quick drawing. mcp35x is okay with outlet pointing up and inlet pointing side ways?

Might have been easier if i purchase tube reservoir or something. Was initially going to pick up those frozenq res on clearance from daz but was told by frozenq that daz was supposed to take those off the shelf as those are defective and there's no warranty on em

I couldn't sleep so I decided to pull out my GPU and temporarily run onboard vid. Just kind of pulled out my gpu and put the full cover on. It was pretty fun and pcb almost looked slightly bent but checked it on few flat surfaces and it's straight! phew.

rest of my WC parts such as rad, cpu block, hoses are arriving today! waiting on barbs to transfer from ncix

There is no way that you are going to cool A gpu and the cpu with only a double 120mm radiator. That gpu alone is going to stress that radiator. That gpu needs ~200 watts of cooling power.

As long as he's using decent fans he shouldn't have a problem with the radiator.

You can do just about anything if you really want to. You can replace "not get the best temps." with he will get horrible temps. Second, as mentioned, he needs the reservoir outlet to feed the pump inlet; the direction of flow should be up and through the gpu to make bleeding easier.

so flow should be res>pump>gpu>cpu>rad>res?

I'm considering adding 50mm(width) 120mm rad on to rear exhaust fan location.
