Help in pump/res selection

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,
This is what I have and the way I would like to go. I have asked this question in many places, but it is hard to keep track, so putting the question out there in one place so i can get my part list together.

I plan to run, 2 580's and a CPU but may add another 580 later.
2 RX360 rad's

Trying to decide if I should run two loops, separate the cpu/gpu loop each with their on rx360 or one loop.

Trying to figure out which is the best pump and res to run.

space will not be an issue as I plan to buy a M10 case labs case next week.


I have 2 xspc res/pump combo on hand already and was just thinking of doing 2 loops with each having it on.
Also look at this: XSPC 5.25 Dual Laing DDC Bay Reservoir w TWO pumps
The pumps are 3.1 version.
Looking to put everything together this weekend.

You would get better temps and avoid a lot of hastle if you kept it all on one loop, especially if you only have 2 360 rads. 3 580's on one 360 rad would get pretty hot. Your CPU idle temp might be slighlty higher if you use have a single loop, but your load temps will be lower for both your GPU's and your CPU.

If you already have two pumps, I would suggest using both of them for redundancy and to provide some extra pressure. I'm not sure if you can remove the pump out of the res/pump combo, but but if you could that would cut down on the bay requirements.

If you wanted a new res, I would suggest the Koolance RP450x2 and a pair of D5 pumps, something like the MCP655. If you use two pumps you can turn them down to a slower but quiter setting without worrying. The res also supports dual loops and single loops if you want to go either way (single loop will perform better though).

Thanks for the input. Man doing a really good loop can be pricy. I would like to go with a single res to save on space.
So you are saying a single loop would be better over all, cause I had been it was better to run 2 loops.
Just to clear things up also. I will have 2 RX360 and a rs360 to run my CPU and 2 580's as of now. Feed back please.
