Problem is that works for air too.

There are 2 benefits of water colling

A) lower temps by throwing your rad outside in winter

B) M0AR rads! lower temps and lower noise.

they do decrease temps linearly so does air cooling. Difference is the where it is located.

Not sure a bunch of timy rads is your solution.

3x3 120mm rad hanging off one side would be epic abnd cool a cpu + gpu + gpu (assuming the blocks was mounted well..)

Read my signature sir. No such thing as overkill and our motto is "Wallet be damned!"

NB/SB blocks are eye candy, but they'll keep your chipset cool while avoiding small, high RPM fans (NOISE).

Also, you're on Overclock.net son, there is no such thing as overkill!
I disagree with dual loop. Unless you are attempting to go with a specific visual element - keep it single loop and use 2 pumps (redundancy baby!) that way if one pump dies the whole system doesn't

thats actually a very smart idea. I like that. 2 pumps for redundancy. I must admit, I've always been a bit nervous about my pump dying. If you were using 2 pumps and one died, would the water still be able to flow through the dead pump?

Chips depend just because yours is 50c doesnt meens his or who elses are the same.

Yep, no problem; non-running pumps are actually not at all restrictive. Martin recently did a test on parallel vs series pumps, including what happens when you stop one. Conclusion was that parallel is bad, series good and if a pump stops in series you still get most of the flow.


Personally, I would go single loop. Reason being that when you are running a mixed load application (some but not all of GPU and CPU, think gaming) then the full cooling power is available to all components. The only time that dual loops will show any advantages over single is if you are doing a lot of folding, and even then the benefit will be slight.

A single MCP35x or 355 with a custom top will be enough to push through 3 rads, CPU, 2 GPUs and Mobo blocks, but by all mean go dual pumps if you want. Be aware that once you get over 1GPM there really isn't that much of a performance increase to be had, and adding more and more pumps can actually be counter productive.

John nailed all the pertinent info below I went to bed shortly after my post lol.

There are so many reservoirs and pump tops that will allow you to connect pumps in serial too that it makes it almost criminal not to do so in a 24/7 system that you don't want downtime on!
