Isn't really a post that contains constructive feedback better than dozens of "AWSOME111" comments?

Again, as I said, I like most of your work, and I question only several of your minor choices, which I tried to explain. I didn't know you take it as such offence.
I never said I was offended...But its real easy to say " why this and why that" when the build is complete. Believe me...If I had deeper pockets I would have done all kinds of things different. You have my setup performing poorly before I even fire it up.

I think the point lvl is making is that he already had all the components and started putting them together when he started this log. Any 'suggestions' on what to buy were moot and unwarranted at that point, beyond that, he didnt ask for our help in selecting what to buy or how to put it together.

There are some basic rules, and you don't really need to run it to have questions.
I explained why I think how small radiator will work. Your replied that it never hurts to add one. I disagree here, because sometimes drop in flow can be worse that that extra few % of surface. More radiators is not always better. Again, it is not that important thing, just a minor detail, but isn't it all about details?

Another thing is for example serial connection of gpu water blocks. It has pretty big impact on flow, often people chose parallel connection there, so water splits evenly through all three full cover blocks. This problem is quite common for multi gpu loops, and has been already tested by many users (results can be found). Imo if you care about performance and flow (considering you are using 2 powrful pumps), you would get much better results with gpus connected into parallel.

And note that neither of these questions require from you extra cash to spend on your rig. They are about thigns you already own, just how to put them together in order to achieve more optimal results.

In this PC case...with the hardware I used...explain to me how you would pull of a parallel connection on the GPU's..you cant..or it would have been done like I DID in my other builds..this is what Im saying...I could get better cooling with Phase but I didnt spring for it. Just to ease your mind..I am have zero issues with flow

What I have here is a socket 1155 i7 on a z68 mobo running 16gb of 2000mhz RAM in a tripple SLI setup. Im happy

True...but he also never asked for our opinions. I could chime in on the extra 120 rad from life experience (it didnt help my temps one bit in a bigger case with more blocks in the loop over the previous build), but i chose not to, mostly because i find that people use them mostly for tube routing than to actually cool something.

As for parallel, it would require to add two extra connections between graphic cards. Like here:



I don't really see how case is limiting you on doing that.

Your right....And I do have two more SLi fittings. I just always seemed to think that going in on one side and coming out on the other in Parallel the water, to me, would just go strait through one side of the cards. Path of least resistance

Does simply adding the extra connectors there actually work with a real gain? I had heard that as long as you had sufficient flow, serial was fine and thered be maybe a few degree difference between the first and last card. Not to mention that double connection down the line just seems like suboptimal flow, but I'm sure that's just an issue of first impression.
post #80 of 195
it would split the flow evenly so you might get better temps/ less restricted flow, it wont go straight through one card as the three blocks are still a bit more restrictive than a piece of tubing
