Running pumps in Series: does it = better temps?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 


i have two xspc res/pumps lying around here and i was thinking i'd run them in series to maybe get better temps?

Right now at 4.9ghz with a really high vtt (i need it for my ram ) i max out in linX with updated linpacks at 57C

i also included a ram water block and have another incoming for one of my graphics cards.
Here is what i came up with after reading up on pumps in series
Attachment 220119

I configured it correctly right? and anyone know if temps will even improve (experience with it?). I figured since head pressure is increased... heat can be transferred and dissipated faster?

It won't really help to be honest, I guess it all depends on the pump you currently have.

If your pump has low head pressure you'd be better off putting it later in your loop, probably between your blocks to give you better pressure later in the loop, that could help reduce temps.

Probably not for you, they can help though. When the flow rate starts dropping the rate at which the water can be cooled drops too, thus reducing the rate of cooling and the temperatures will increase, the way to counter this is with more flow.

This is only when you have a LOT of things in your loop, for you there'd be almost no gain.

Hope this helps.

Try this link: http://martinsliquidlab.org/pump-and...r-spreadsheet/ . Martin has done some serious testing in almost all regards to flow/pressure etc. I couldn't find the flow test i was thinking of right now, but it's out there somewhere. Generally as long as you stay above the 1gpm mark you'll be good to go, with very small differences in temps with higher flow.
