Just another Loop Order question-X58a-ud7 Mips Fusion block

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well, i ve read numerous posts mentioning that loop order does not matter, while few prefer the CPU>mobo>GPU order.

The thing is, that i have not found a post with somebody who has actually checked  the influence of changing the sequence between cpu and motherboard blocks.

I am changing my loop order in order to utilze quick disconnects in my GPUs and since in my Gigabyte X58a-ud7 rev1, the motherboard's block is really close to my gpu #1, i was thinking to go Motherboard>Cpu>gpu1>gpu2

What do you believe? (Flow, temperature, pressure impact)

To get an idea of my motheboard / loop layout and its MIPS fusion block, here is a picture of similar setup (without quick disconnects) i found from the net:

You could interchange the mb and cpu block however you want, the mb won't produce enough heat to raise the water temp enough to affect the cpu and if you have the cpu first the mb wouldn't mind the heated water since those things run cool already.

Thanks for the answer, but is this something you have tested or are you based on others recommendations.

I know that the water temperature will eventually reach an equilibrium, but do not know if the pressure drop at the mips fusionblock will cause problem to the cooling efficiency on the cpu block?!
