Fittings

Tuesday, June 22nd 2010, 11:55pm

Hi all,first time posting so please go easy with me.

I hope to be able to use a couple of Aquacomputer blocks for my next build.



Aquacomputer cuplex XT di 478 / 775 Block G1/8 thread,and get the AMD bracket to fit my board



Aquacomputer Twinplex XT di Chipset Cooler G1/8 thread



As i do like the look of these blocks.



I would like to use 1/2" ID 3/4" OD tubing,i see in your shop you do these http://www.aquatuning.co.uk/product_info…kel-plated.html

Which then i hope i can use the above tubing,looking at the chipset block the threads look a bit close to be able to us the fittings for the G1/4 for 1/2" compresion fittings.

If this is not possible could someone give me some advise on what fittings i can use and which size tubing i can use as i would like to stick with compresion fittings if possible.

My Rad,Res and Pump have the G1/4 thread if thats any help.

Thanks for looking,any help and advise would be very much appreciated :thumbsup:

Since we don't offer such adapters I can test it but the cuplex should be no problem here. The distance of the threads is much smaller at the twinplex. Guessing from the photos it might work.

I am thinking of changing my res setup for my next build and would like to use these.

http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info…roducts_id=2035

http://shop.aquacomputer.de/product_info…roducts_id=1267

If someone could help me with a couple of questions it would be very much appreciated :)

1) will the bay and facia fit in my Lian - Li case (343b)

2) would i be able to use the facia upside down as well as the Aquatube so i have the two holes at the top of the res and use one hole for filling

This is what i would like to do with the res and bay,first one has a light blue tint acrylic behind the slates showing the tube











Second one has the slats cut out with some tinted acrylic so you could see the tube again,with this one you can see the tube when there are some LEDS in it











Thanks for looking :thumbsup:

As long as you use the lowest point as outtake from the aquatube, i don't see a reason why it wouldn't work.

Dont know if this is the right place for this,thought i would show you where i am with my next project Acrylin 343b.

Most of the case will have white acrylic











Motherboard and top panel cut











I did cut two more panels but i will be doing two new ones for the rear and front as im changing the rear grill and the front res to a Aquatube











I also attacked the rear with a new peice of alluminium



















Done a bit this weekend not much, where i am at the mo

Front test fitting still got to cut out for the grills







Top test fit with grill and bolts







Side panel test fit,got to get a peice cut out for a peice of clear acrylic so it sits flush with the panel







Something like this from my old case a while ago but without the bits on the side







If all goes well this is what i hope the front will look like







This is what im using at the mo my firrst attempt at getting wet,plus i treated myself to a new desk ready for when ive done my next build.





Thanks for looking :)

I am thinking of getting an Aquaero could someone help a noob out with a few questions please.

I will only be cooling the CPU so to some it might be overkill for what im using it for.

I will be using four fans on my rad,so can i use the four fan channel thingy to keep an eye on the rad.

Also if i was to get a Flow sensor "high flow" G1/4 for aquaero, aquastream XT ultra and poweradjust where would be the best place to fit it and which cables would i need to get.

I will be using the white delrin Aquatube and the aquabay AT Baydream (Einbaurahmen für aquatube) Rev. 1.5.

Any help and advice would be very much appreciated to me the noob :thumbsup:

Thanks for looking and your time.
