1 loop or 2 separate loops?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Below is a picture of my second WC build (first real build). Originally I planned to build 2 separate loops - 1 loop for the CPU and 1 loop for the GPUs where the rads, pumps, etc. in both loops are the same. The more I look at my case the more I realize this will be nightmare in terms of routing.

Assuming I decide to go with just 1 loop my question is are (2) Koolance PMP-450S Strong pumps in series and (2) Aquacomputer Airplex Modularity 360 rads in series be enough to handle (1) 3930K @ 1.4v and (3) ASUS GTX680-DC2T-2GD5 around stock voltages?

Each rad has (3) Scythe Gentle Typhoon 120mm AP-15s in push with (3) TFC Xtender 120mm shrouds. Each side of the case has (4) AP-15s at the buttom pulling in cool air. Check my signature for more part details.

Thanks.

if you get a swiftech apogee you can add the gpus loop right out the cpu, the apogee has 4 outlets

like this one off their site.

Are you running the pumps at 12V or 24V? They should be able to do that either way. Those are pretty good pumps.

Honestly it's easier to keep it all in one loop, since adding the second reservoir would be a pain. In my opinion single loops look infinitely more clean than dual loops, plus when you drain it you won't have to drain both loops. Performance between one and two will be very similar and advtanges will be minimal, I think.

I use a Koolance CTR-SPD24X2 dual 24V pump controller. So I can run them up to 24V.

Holy QDCs Batman!

To answer your question, yes your rads and pumps will handle it.

I would consider not adding any more QDCs as they tend to be a little restrictive - try to break your loop into sections (e.g. GPUs, CPU, rads, pumps...). You will probably not need to run the pumps at 24V, when you get everything set up try running a load test at varying pump speeds and see what works best for you.

The two 360 rads will handle your CPU and GPUs with a reasonable air-water delta (~5°C).

To answer your question, yes your rads and pumps will handle it.
I would consider not adding any more QDCs as they tend to be a little restrictive - try to break your loop into sections (e.g. GPUs, CPU, rads, pumps...). You will probably not need to run the pumps at 24V, when you get everything set up try running a load test at varying pump speeds and see what works best for you.
The two 360 rads will handle your CPU and GPUs with a reasonable air-water delta (~5°C).

I was waiting for a QDC comment. laugher.gif Believe it or not I had +1 QDC in that loop but I had to remove it due to the bend radius of the tubing. When I redo the loop I plan to cut down on the QDCs but not by too much. I love the flexibility that come with QDCs. thumb.gif
