Dual pump question

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
ok here is the jist. I have recently acquired three 120mm rads and two pumps from a ThermalTake's Bigwater SE. I dont have the proper Y couplings to push both pumps side by side in tandom. I dont think one by itself will deal with three seperate 120 rads very well.

Would a loop setup like this: Res -> pump-> waterblock-> Rad1-> Rad2-> Rad3-> Pump2-> Back to Res work effectively?

I agree with pjlietz also, but I would put the second pump right before the CPU clock if it is restrictive.

Yes it will work fine. It doesnt matter where the pumps are located in the loop. You can have them right next to each other and it will perform the same as if they were apart like you suggested.
