  • water system i want to get... (merged threads)

    ok, i sorta know what a reservoir is but do you need one in every cooling system??? and exactly what is a reservoir?? thanks:mad:

    No ya don't need a reservoir but they do come in handy on a topline job.

      so do you suggest i get one? or not...its not that expensive so i guess i could throw one in...:cheers:

        ok, im willing to spend some money so heres a list:

        pump: hydor L30
        radiator: HWLabs Black Ice
        Block: Swiftech MCW5002
        reservoir: Typhoon-Quad Reservoir
        fan: some 120 mm (stilll undecided)
        tubbing and such: still looking

        is there anything missing or do you suggest other stuff....or better stuff for the same price.....:bounce: :bounce2: :bounce: :bounce2:

          Reservoirs really only help in:
          1. filling
          2. bleeding

          If you want slightly easer filling and bleeding, they you can get one, but i would go no reservoir, why spend extra money when you can just fill and bleed it manually?

            Resorvior is also good so you can dump some ice in it.....but make sure you're insulated for condensation.

                I recommend 1/2 inch tubing, other than that all looks good

                    i would also get a GPU block, something liekk the maze3 gpu block. clearflex 1/2 tubing will be good. u can make ur own resiervior or skip it if u want. as andy's watercooling post said, u dont need a reservior, it just helps to bleed the system better.

                    for the fan, i would get the vantec stealth case fan. is around 20 buz canadian .

                      skip the res

                      and if ya got $$$ to spend ;):

                      d-tek white water or tc4 rev2 waterblock ( if ya got a little more money and time, get a cascade wb )

                      get a heatcore, chevette or d-tek pro core with 2 / 120mm fans ( push - pull )

                      tygon r-3603 1/2" id(inside diameter) tubing... its a little more $$$, but its way flexible and strong as h3ll.

                      and dont forget the hose clamps - metal wormdrive are the best

                      gl :wave:

                      **edit: took out pump recommendation**

                            i was drinking a Bawls the other day and i sat there and looked at it and some how cooling came into you think it is possible to make resevoir out of a bawls thinkin it is..but i dont know, that would look pretty cool....thoughts or comments?


                            • #15
                              put to tubes in there 1 intake 1 tat gives water to the pump. the tube should be sealed very tight.

                              but the wouldbe a bad ideea, go with plastic instead
