A few thoughts on Frozen CPU's XSPC Raystorn RX360 EXTREME Kit - Page 3

post #21 of 30
There are many options available to link up your gpu. A more streamlined loop will help relieve unnecessary stress off your pump. Here a couple of my builds (most recent at the top):

Nice Rigs

Did you slowly upgrade them from one another? or did you just get 3 different ones?

I wish I had some numbers to share with you, but really it's just an observation. I have never change it from setting two, and while I was flushing the system rotating 5gal home depot buckets of hot water/vinegar then onto distilled, it was emptying these buckets into my slop bin so quickly it was actually annoying. I will be adding temperature monitoring sensors and measuring flow in the future but the case labs case i'm hoping to order today will drain my pc fund.

So I talked with my girlfriend who is a biomedical engineer (ie she's taken a few fluid dynamics and heat transfer courses). She gave her gut-feeling (no calculations) that if the flow was high enough that it wouldn't really matter which way the loop was made.

Only a test would tell, but at least some vindication.

I had anticipated an answer like this, like i mentioned, any difference would be nominal (maybe a degree or 2c?) but if nothing else it was something different. I'm glad I'm not completely out of my mind though, as i read farther into the 'introduction to mechanical engineering' book in front of me I will get to a small section on fluid dynamics, which might help me understand a bit better whats going on.

I'm sure most set up their loops with sli bridges because it's the traditional way, and it's been proven to work. But, there is more than one way to skin a cat, and short of not mixing and matching 10 different colored tubes and fitting, I'm not concerned with how it looks.

Food for thought. It seems to confirm what she was saying that if the flow it high enough it shouldn't matter, but this goes into specifics about the restrictiveness of blocks allowing the flow to be high or low.

Very good read, +rep. I'm not sure case labs turn around time but i'm going to order today most likely, as soon as its here, i'll pull apart my system, and do some of the simple tests, with cards cards in parallel and in line, and post results in a new thread.

Wow that is one strange looking loop lol

Aye its different. after looking at it for several minutes though the loop seems to me to be all good its just a different way of running it in parallel. True that the extra hose and pluming will put a smidgen more strain on the pump but we are talking extremely small. I like it hell anything different is good right. If anything its something new to look at. cheers



One thing to add. I would try and make the length of the tubing from the Y's the same so the flow is very close to the same through each card. Really doesn't matter each line but the overall length of both the feed and exhaust or from Y to Y on both cards should be the same.
