Does this loop layout look ok? (crappy paint drawing)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Sorry looks like my kid drew it. I also bought a plastic "T" to make a drain, where should that go?


It will be similar to this layout but with the 360 facing the other way, and with only one gpu in the loop with a universal block.

I'm not water cooling guru, far from it, but surely you want the warm water to go to a rad to cool down before it's sent to the res/pump?

Go pump/res > 360 rad > cpu > gpu > 240 > pump/res. When it comes to it, the loop order doesn't really matter. You want to make the shortest tubing route, while keeping the res above the pump. In your case you have a res/pump combo, so that doesn't apply.

Edit: Maybe you don't have that combo, I just assumed. If not, what I said applies then, and keep the same order.

I think I want it the coldest going into the cpu not the res.

Ok I figured it would be bad to feed the gpu heated water from the cpu. Your way is definitely better tubing wise.

After the loop has heated up a bit, it won't make a difference. So just make the shortest/cleanest route possible, which will help with flow and make it easier for the pump

Yah sorry I do have (or will) the rasa kit woth Res/pump combo.

So its pump>360>cpu>gpu>240>res? How about a place for the drain? On the line going from 240 to the res inlet?

With PC water cooling the "warm" water is only going to be 1-3°C warmer than the "cool" water, so loop order is usually unimportant (unless you are running quad GTX 580s or something crazy like that). I would go for the neatest order which gives the least tubing.

You want the drain at the part of your loop which is lowest whilst draining, keeping in mind that you may want to tip your case whilst draining.

Ok I see thanks for the tip, as for the drain. The bottom rad is going to be lying on the floor of my case. So I don't think I can get lower then it. So it seems like I may need to lift it up to drain the whole loop properly.
