Thoughts on a Y-Splitter for a Paraell GPU loop - Page 2

to answer your question. i have 2 separate loops. soon to be 3.
for now one loop cools the CPU, RAM, and Motherbaord.
the Second loop is just the GPU's
as i stated on my thread,
The liquid is being pushed through the loop with 2 MXCP 35x pumps in series.
The Gpu's are between 2 Black ICE SR-480 Rads built for push-pull.
The loop is as follows:
Res - Pumps - Top 480 Rad - Gpu's - Bottom 480 Rad - Back to Res.

I missed the pump in your original post, that's plenty of pumping power.


I think there's really no amount of tinkering that you can do at this point to have exactly equal temperatures. 1-2 degrees difference is less than a 5% difference, really negligible.

so series it is?

Series or back to the way you originally had your parallel set up.


Personally I'd just leave things as is, your cards already run cool. 5 degrees isn't going to make an ounce of a difference. It hardly seems worth the effort.

What about when overclocking?

Well, worst case you have a card at what 50-55 degrees C? That's still really low compared to anything an air cooler can do. Heat won't be your road block to overclocking.


I'm not saying don't change things, you've spent quite a lot of time and money on that set up, just I'm by nature a lazy person biggrin.gif


So if you are going to change things, I'd either go back to a serial set up or if you want to keep a parallel set up, have your inlet on the first card, and your outlet on the last card. The inlets and outlets cannot be on the same side, one must be on the left, and the other must be on the right.

e.g. Inlet on the top left, outlet on the bottom right.
