Need help pump chosing

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello!

im planing to run a loop like this:
Pumrp-> CPU -> 360 Rad -> GPU -> GPU - > 240 Rad -> RAM -> Res

I cant decide if i need to use 2 loops or what pump to get for a singel loop(that could force water trough all that)

and i would really like some more experianced users ideas/suggestions before tossing my cash left and right!

Thanks for your time

First thing I can say is the loop looks a little strange.

I think it would be better is something like
Pump -- 360 Rad -- CPU -- RAM -- 240 Rad -- GPU -- GPU -- Res

Since you are new we cannot see what your sig rig is however CPU's can be WC'd with a 240 Rad as well. So if plumbing is easier having the 240 Rad first and then the 360 that would also work (would give your GPU's nice temps!)

I have a very simular set up (minus the RAM block) and 1 pump (655). It has no problem flowing through all of that and providing excellent temps.

Hopefully I was some help, and others can be as well!

Either the MCP 655 or MCP 335 are popular choices. So my vote would go to either the 355 maybe over the 655 since I am not sure how restrictive the ram blocks are. The main difference between the two is the 355 works better with more restrictive loops and is a bit more noisy where the 655 is better for less restrictive loops and is more quiet.

You'll want an MCP355 + aftermarket top. I don't think a 655 would be as good through that much restriction. RAM blocks are normally pretty restrictive.

Thanks for the reply's guys, and yes the order is mostly because tubing is hard with 1/2 tube im using a 800D and im having a hard time getting the 240 Res to fit inside the case with the 360 on top and get the loop to not be to long and not get tubes all over the place we'll see what i can come up with!

as for pump, ill see if i can get my hands on a MCP 335 ( its the same as Liang DDC right?)

cheers for the replies!

The mcp355 has a 15ft head pressure and the mcp655 has a head pressure of 13ft. The mcp655 has better flowrate.

EDIT: Yes, it is a DDC pump.

Ummm, this flow chart means hot/warm water is going to flow into the reservoir and into the pump causing higher temperatures in the pump.

Throw the 240rad in behind of the CPU&RAM and the 360rad behind the 2xGPU's and you'll get cooled water though your res/pump.
