the mcp is better but xspc stands behind their products very well. with three of the rs240 kits you would have 3 rezs, 3 pump/reservoir combos and 3 240 rads and would come with all cableing for around $400 +tax.

just to throw my 2 cents in if OP wants 3 loops let him get 3 loops his money he can spend it how he likes. IMO i would say 1 loop example Rad>Res>Pump>Vidcard>vidcard>120rad>Motherboard>CP U>360 or 480Rad

Sounds like a great deal.

Let me ask you a question. why do you say the MCP's are better?
post #14 of 38
they have better ratings and reviews and are also pricier(price of a component can mean better parts). also you can buy aftermarket tops that increase flow. even if you got those kits and then bought 3 mcp pumps you would still be way less than if putting it together separately.

I meant the enclosures that XSPC do, like it has the pump right next to the res and it takes up 2 5.25" bays. I have the MCP655-B in one, works great.

Loop 3: Second 6990

I was thinking a resivor and pump for each loop.

I was thinking an MCP655 pump for each loop.

I was thinking 3 SR-1 480 rads with Gentle Typhoon fans in push pull

Question: what would be the best resivors to get for this?
Question: ive never done this before, will it work?

thanks
Maybe you could do two loops instead of 3, 3 seems excessive! One for CPU and Mobo, Second for both 6990's. If your worried about one card being hotter than the other could you not just cool them in parallel?

I remember reading the Water cooling essential threads on Parallel, but i could never quite understand it fully.

Could you briefly explain how that would solve the issue?
post #18 of 38
This is what I would do if I were you, one big loop.

1x RX360
1x RX480
Dual MCP-655s
Res of choice

Put the RX360 after your cpu, but before your GPUs. Put the RX480 after your gpus. You will have more then enough pressure to get the water flowing through. Put push/pull fans with shrouds on the radiators. This will have more than enough cooling power for your system. Yes, it costs less, but the difference in temperatures will be only slight (2-3C). It would also look more professional in the case because it simply doesn't take up as much room.

But really, chill out. Everyone is trying to help you. If you know everything, you wouldn't need our help.

EDIT: Here are some pictures from 88EVGAFTW that give a good description on how you could run your cards

Parallel Config:

Series Config:

Parallel is less restrictive, series has better cooling power.

I have 3 loops, 1 360 for the CPU, 2 360's for tri-480's and a 120 for the motherboard this way hardware temps don't affect each other myself I wouldn't have it any other way.

With the GPUs in parallel, water flows through both cards and exits at the same time. Series goes through one card, through the second card, then exits. See ttaylor's pics above.
