To start of I laid all the components on a bed of old newspapers, so that in the event of a leak, it would be easy to track.
Asetek recommends the pump to be attached very closely to the reservoir and they provide a "support" plate for this
The end result is like this
After cutting the tubes at the appropriate lengths you can easily connect all the comment by the easy push-in system.
asetek recommended layout: PUMP -> RADIATOR -> CPU-BLOCK -> RESERVOIR
All ready to go:
Using a short wire (included) you can power up your PSU without the need for it be connected to the motherboard. The power for the pump is derailed from an extension cord which plugs in between your PSU and the power source. As soon as you give power to your PSU the pump is powered up and the system will slowly fill with water while you need to pour approx. 500ML of the mixed fluid into the reservoir.
After 5-10min most of the air has gone out of the system and you can put the top back onto the reservoir.
The CPU block will need some good "moving around" to make it loose all the small air bubbles.
I let it run like during 2-3 hours to check for leaks, during that time I decided to put the Sunon fan at a lower pace. The WaterChill control unit is capable of providing 12v or 7v to the Sunon by replacing a jumper.
But when I changed the jumper to 7v and re-powered on the system the Sunon fan didn't start spinning and needed a small push to get going. Luckily this is not case when you the Asetek WaterChill system installed and the PSU is being powered on by your motherboard. The reason for this is the lower voltage the PSU delivers when not connected to the main board.
When I was 100% sure that I had no leaks I installed the CPU water block onto my Pentium 4 test system.
Installation for the Pentium 4 is straightforward:remove the default P4 bracket
install the 4 pillars
slide the water block over them
place the 4 springs
and screw them down
Everything necessary to accomplish this is provided plus some stickers for decoration
