To res or not to res that be the ?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
do I put a res in my WC loop ?
I putting these in my Mozart case I will have 2 independant loops one for SLI and one for CPU should I also put resoviors in them.
I'm not a expert water cooler but isnt the point to have as much flow rate as you can and resess mean more liqued hense less flow?

WC pumps : 2 SWIFTECH|MCP655
Radiators: 2 Danger Den Black Ice Xtreme II Dual 120mm Radiator (Blue) w/ Customizable Fittings
1/2 inch planned for entire loop.

Thanks guys

A res makes it a little easier to fill and bleed, you don't have to have one...With 2 loops going I would just use 2 T-lines...If you want to do it easy get 2 Fil-Ports, will link...

If you don't already have the parts you might just want to put that all in one loop and use a GTX rad....Danger Den :: Radiators :: Black Ice Series :: GTX Xtreme Series :: Black Ice GTX240

I have heard arguments both for and against not having a res to have more flow pressure... I use a res...I really don't think it would matter to much...But I could be wrong....

thanks for the links. Yea I already have the pumps and rads so stuck going 2 loops now. Ok I don't think I will go with the fill ports as res will take up more space and though the TX has that in spades I would still like to keep it cluter free as much as I can.
