Added another 240mm radiator into my loop and it did not drop temps. How come? - Page 2

What pump do you have? You might have restriction problems, but I'm not going to lie, it seems far fetched unless you have a really weak pump.

What are the other two rads + block you have?

The Radiators are

1. 240mm XSPC RS240
2. 120mm Radiator Black Ice Pro
3. 240mm Black Ice radiator


Pump is Rasa 750

I have my kill coil in the reservoir and I can see it moving and being pushed by the water coming in from the "in" tubing. So it looks like its ok.

So you literally got the same setup as me (except i have RS120). Anyways i think its fine exept youve got overkill cooling for the CPU... so its time to add GPU/other blocks.thumb.gif

I just disconnected all radiators but the RS240. Refilled my loop. Booted up. Turned on prime. And....

My temps are literally the same. This sucks. I dont want to buy a water block for the 7970 lol. I have to buy a 7970 first.

My thoughts were that I could get the temps lower at load by adding more radiators. I have to find out what my ambient temp is now just to check.

Gimme the RS240...lol.

Sure the system was fully bled? Any air bubbles/pockets can raise the temp.

It helps if you can measure the water temperature too.
The closer together the water and air temperatures are, the less adding more radiator will improve performance.

Yeah that's what I'm saying, a 240 is more than enough for a single CPU. Try running with all radiators again, no fans at all except 1 case intake to keep positive air pressure. You can cash in your overkill rads for less noise.

120 + 240 makes a difference compared to just 240mm

when I add the second 240mm radiator, no difference in temps occurs.

i got just 120m rad on a GPU would it make a massive difference adding a 240rad to it as well?

also would it overclock more if the temps were lowed from 65c
