How should i loop my setup?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have ordered a watercooling set from aquatuning and i am eagerly awaiting it's arrival. However, i have not really decided what is the smartest way to put up the tubing.

I am gonna cool two gpu's (6970) and one cpu (i7 930).

I'm getting two radiators. one 120mm and one 240mm. You coul argue that this isn't enough for my specs, but i don't expect ridiculous temperatures. Now my question is whether i should loop it:



Pump/Res - 240mm rad - cpu -120mm rad - gpu -pump/res

or

pump/res - 120mm rad - cpu - 240mm rad - gpu - pump/res



I would prefer the first option, because it would look alot "cleaner" considering i have the 240mm radiator in the top of the case, and the 120mm in the top-back of the case. I do guess that the gpu generate much more heat tho, so that it would be beneficial to have the 240mm radiator before it in the loop.

What do you guys think? Any other loops that would work?

Go with whatever gives you the cleanest shortest loop, it makes very little difference what order their in.
