Best Orientation

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am about to re do my loop when my 470 with full cover block comes and I have a question about the best way to cool it. I have a 360 rad and a 120 rad avalible and both are currently mounted but I am just using the 360 atm as I am only cooling my cpu. What will be the best way to cool my cpu and gpu when I re do the loop (both gpu and cpu will be overclocked btw). My mate says I should just use the 360 in a push pull orientation or someone else said I should go from res to 360 to gpu to 120 to cpu but not need to have a P/P set up. What will be the best way (one of these or maybe there is a better way???) as if the 360 route is the best i will need to go get 4 new fans?

Honestly you are best of making the loop look clean and tidy, rather then be a spaghetti of hose. pump/res > rad is the main thing to do. and from there where ever, I like to do the cpu first because GPUs dump alot of heat.
