but honestly, I don't see the point in 2 loops... Unless you make one of them black and one red tongue.gif But that could be done even with one loop.
edit: 2 loops, clear tubing: Run mayhem's red coolant in one and mayhem's oil black in other! biggrin.gif

Two loops, two pumps.

Admittedly, I lol'd too after you pointed that out.

Would rather go with coloured tubing, I'm using mayhems red in my current loop and it's gone purple. last time I changed it I found the inside of the tubing was purple too. Hmmf.

I figure that I'm gonna need two pumps (or at least should get 2) and XSPC make a dual DDC res I figure why not go with two. Red and black tubing gives it a kick too.

How come the dye has turned purple, how long have you been running it? My friend has the mayhem's red dye too in his loop and his was still red last time I checked (built the loop in september). But yeah, the tubing gets colored (that's the case with all dyes), but that's not something I think is a big deal as you won't notice the colored tubing while you're running the dye in your loop (obviously) and tubing is cheap so we change it few times a year (when working on the parts or just doing some maintenance).

2 pumps 1 loop sounds better imho tongue.gif But if you were to do separate loops for your cpu and gpu's, would you need to bleed both loops if you were to do some work on one of your gpu's for example? headscratch.gif

I could join them by just putting on pump out into the other pump, I dunno, it's all up in the air at the moment. If I had 960 in total not sure if it would cool as well as 480 each component.

Also yeah, not sure about the tubing, but I'd rather just use coloured tubing.

I dunno either, never done dual loop or pump setup tongue.gif I've had my share of physics though and I don't think there's much difference between 1 and 2 loops temp wise. Whatever works best for you smile.gif
And don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to cram the clear tubing down your throat or anything. Just ideas tongue.gif

Yeah, it also might have something to do with the fact it's clear and the colouring additive in the tubing soaks up the colouring or something. Also, I agree. I think with having two loops it'll probably equal out with thermodynamics and stuffs.

I dunno, 50/50.

A little bump with a little idea.

Here's what I'll probably be going for, 1 is the drain system and 2 is the pump/res combo. It'll probably be an XSPC dual DDC pump res.

Something along those lines, whadd'ya think?

I'm thinking that you're going to have lots of work ahead of you if you're going to fit all that in the case. I'm afraid that the 360 might hit the dual bay res and/or the rear 120 rad and the lower front rad would have trouble fitting with the 240. Also, why 2x120 rads intead of a 240 on front?

the little bump I see is the size of the case.

I just built an air cooled arc mini for a friend and the dual bay res will most definitely inhibit the top 360, not a chance of fitting a fan there either :/
