Water cooling CPU & Northbridge. Help!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am planning to build a water cooling system for my computer. I am planning to water cool both my cpu and my northbridge. Here is my plan:

Plan 1:
Pump > Radiator > CPU > Northbridge

Plan 2:
Pump> Radiator > CPU > Radiator > Northbridge

for Plan 2 I would need 2 radiator. Is this nesscuary? or can I live with Plan 1?

Well if i was thinking of being on the safe side i'd go for plan 2 but i think you will be able to get away with plan 1 if you wanted to

Don't waste water on the NB when air will do it better for less.

This is entirely true, do not bother to cool your Northbridge, it's cheaper, easier, and better on air. Cool your GPU instead... it's a better use of your loop, also if you have a decent rad with decent fans you don't need two rads. Cheers!
Brrrrrrrr...

yes. find a maze 4 gpu block, and make sure your pump has ~15 ft head....the 20 range would be better, but it's up to you.

DD has the MAZE 5 now. I've used pumps with 6ft of head and they work fine. 10ft is recommended anything over that is fine, but isn't needed.
