water cooling Anonymous 17/01/28(Sat)17:18 No. 22441 ID: 41b627

File 148562029091.jpg - (1.41MB , 1920x1440 , b92wJH8.jpg )

First timer building a water cooled rigid tubing rig here. Doing CPU/GPU.

I'm stuck on the plumbing of the rig, and planning exactly what I need to order:

>How do I plan a loop out properly?

>How do I know exactly what fittings to order?

>What is the best tubing ID/OD size?

>How will I know exactly how many fittings to order?

>How do I get light blue or purple fluid?

>Is UV fluid worth the hassle? Can I get it in light blue or purple?

>Should my pump be a combo piece or can I get them separate and hang them in different places?

>How do I prepare for leaks while testing?

>I've seen some builds where they stand the motherboard upside down to fit stuff around, is this worth it?

Pic related, Phantek Enthoo Luxe is the case i'll be using

Read the instructions and you'll be fine.

Basically this.

If you don't know what you're doing, buy liquid cooling kits that include all the necessary parts of the appropriate sizes to secure the system in place.

Once you get comfortable seeing how it all works and fits together then you can move onto advanced topics like one large radiator with tubing looped between all the parts in the system.

You can use EKWB loop planner tool, it will tell you exact amount of fittings you need, and all other parts. Very simple yet effective tool for first timers to help avoid missing parts.
