Planned Loop v2: Feedback?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Alright after getting some feedback on my planned loop I've made some changes.... I'm now building in a Cubitek XL Tank. I have some questions as well.
But first, here are some pictures.



So here are my questions.... Does anyone have experience with the koolance vid-nx850 gpu block? I really want to avoid EK blocks because I'm going for the nickel plated look and EK has had huge problems lately in the nickel dept. Also, when it comes to adding a y splitter that runs to both the cpu and gpu (see loop diagram), will pressure be uneven because of the higher pressure in the cpu block? If so, is the performance gain worth the loss in pressure?

My temps are pretty damned good while the vid card being OC'd and the CPU the same way...

I have RES > PUMP MCP655 w/ topper > GPU > 120 > CPU > 360

And whoa yeah... 2 splits? not a good idea, once your temps are stable... the water wont get any colder than the warmest component... keep that in mind

I would suggest running it serially instead of with the splitter. It just makes a mess and doesn't really provide much value.

And what? The water can be down to ambient in temperature. If it was the same temp as the hottest component it wouldn't be very good at cooling.
