hello guys, i have this pump


into this res


and besides my cpu waterblock i have this gpu block


and this block


and i have 2 rads, one is 360 rad, and the other one is a 240, both xspc, i want to make a single loop.. but what would be the best loop.. first time watercooling the chipset btw, i have another pump/res (the xspc one, but is kinda bad cuz 2 has already died on me before), so i have the posibility to make 2 loops, but i dont wanna have all that tubing into my case.. so i need your advises.. Thks

ONLY MAKE ONE LOOP!!!!! It is not worth the hassle of two! Here's why:

The difference in temperature in the hottest part of the loop and the coolest part of the loop is only a few degrees. It is wrong to assume that because the water is going through, lets say the gpu first, that the cpu cooling will be compromised. I know it is a hard concept to understand, but because the water is moving so fast, it really doesn't make a difference. If I had an order, the pump ALWAYS needs to be fed directly by the reservoir.

outlet of reservoir to inlet of pump
outlet of pump to inlet of GPU block
outlet of GPU block to inlet of 360mm radiator
outlet of 360mm radiator to inlet of chipset block
outlet of chipset block to inlet of power delivery (PWM mosfet) block
outlet of power delivery (PWM mosfet) block to inlet of CPU block
outlet of CPU block to inlet of 240mm radiator
outlet of 240mm radiator to inlet of reservoir

The radiators can be interchanged, again if you think about a cycle, all of the liquid that is carrying heat away from the CPU block will have gone through every single radiator before it gets back to the CPU block. The loop could be...

outlet of reservoir to inlet of pump
outlet of pump to inlet of GPU block
outlet of GPU block to inlet of 240mm radiator
outlet of 240mm radiator to inlet of chipset block
outlet of chipset block to inlet of power delivery (PWM mosfet) block
outlet of power delivery (PWM mosfet) block to inlet of CPU block
outlet of CPU block to inlet of 360mm radiator
outlet of 360mm radiator to inlet of reservoir

I hope this helps! biggrin.gif

hello guys, im preparing the loop, but is kinda messy because of the short distance betwen the inlets and outlets of the cpu and chipets/mosftes blocks... i was wondering if i can go this way:

reservoir-pump-360rad(top)-mosfets-cpu-chipset-gpu-240rad(bottom)-back to the reservoir,

this way the loop is from top to bottom..

Yeah, that is fine, just make sure not to kink your tubing too tight. They do sell 90 and 45 degree fittings.

Water cooling can be a bit of a pain.
