“Official” KestrelFlight v2.0 Work Log
I’ll be condensing the several threads related to this into this one. This will be the “official” worklog for the water cooled version of KestrelFlight aka v2.0 (was know as "No Name" for a while). Here are the components for the build as of 02/16/11………items different from the air cooled version are noted in bold italics.
CASE: Zalman Z7 Plus (without the Plus!!)
PSU: OCZ700MXSP Temporary unless it works!!
MOBO: MSI 890GXM-E65
GPUs: 2 x XFX GTX 285
MEMORY: G.SKILL F3-16000CL9D-4GBPIS 4GB 2X2GB
HDD: WD V’Raptor 300GB
OPTICAL: Pioneer DVR-S18MBK
FAN CONTROLLER: Zalman ZM-MFC3
MOBO CHIP SET: TBD if any
CPU: TBD (have an AquaComputer Cuplex XT di)
GPUs: EK Waterblocks EK-FC285 GTX - Nickel / Plexi w/ Nickel Backplates
RESIVOR: FrozenQ Liquid Fusion 160 ml Reservoir
RADIATOR: 1 x 140 / 1 x 240 by Magicool
PUMP: MCP655 + Bitspower D5 Acrylic top + Black Sparkle Mod Kit by Sidewinder
TUBEING: 3/8” ID x 5/8” OD (10mm x 14mm??) Brand TBD
FITTINGS: 3/8” Compression by Bitspower & Enzotech as required for “bling” scheme
Right now I’m still trying to “finish” the air cooled version which is missing some cables I need to order as well as some other “smaller stuff”. However that hasn’t prevented me from doing designing “on the wing” and the following items have already arrived. Also haven’t cut and mounted the window as I may have to modify the cutout to show off some of the water cooling items.
The two Magicool radiators, the FrozenQ reservoir, the converter for the res, 3 x Yan Loon 140 fans, and Phopya fan/rad spacers arrived for performance-pcs just before the weekend. Working with Gary at Sidewinder I ordered a Swiftech MCP655 with some Bitspower goodies and I think it looks just dandy!!
Trying to water cool this thing is starting to make me feel like I back working on one of my mATX builds!! Anyway have a few questions concerning fans & rads…………
1. Is there a source for 1:1 patterns for rad cutouts? In this case 1 x 140 and 1 x 280??
2. Bottom mounted rads are intake??
3. Is there a rule of thumb “height” for under the box for said bottom feeder?
4. In the Z7 case part of the “appeal” for me is seeing the green fan up front. Any disadvantage to have the fan on that side of the rad or maybe a push me - pull you arrangement? Ref pic………..
As of 0/28/11
