An abstract loop

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I'm researching water cooling. I've not decided on specific components yet but I am looking for opinions on a loop setup. I'm planning on cooling my sig rig for 24/7 folding.

My thoughts are, the GFX card puts out the most heat and I don't want to dump that on the CPU. I also don't necessarily want to dump the heat from the CPU onto the GFX card because it already runs hot.

My proposed loop would be this:

Pump>Reservoir>240 Rad>CPU>120 Rad>GPU>Back to the pump

The 240 rad would handle the heat from the GPU the 120 rad would be for the CPU.

Is this overkill? Would a single 240 rad handle the GPU and CPU? I have a HAF 922 so a 240 rad is the biggest I could use as stock, though modding it to fit a 360 isn't beyond my means.

If it were me, I'd go with a Black Ice GTX 360... That'll do both your GPU and CPU without any increase in temps.

TBH it won't make much difference what order you have the GPU/CPU in.

I'd say single 360 rad like the RX360 will be sufficient with overall great performance. I have e8400@4100 1.39V and GTX 295 (mind you, dual pcb) OC'd and running 1.2V and I'm having no problems with temp at all

try putting the pump after the reservoir. Reservoir>Pump>RAD>CPU>GPU>Res (this is what I'm running)

Pump after res so that it is easy to push the water through the rest of the loop. After that you can do what you like really!
