water cooling order

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hey guys i just bought my first water cooling system. I've spent sometime planing my loop but i still want advice from more experience builders before i go ahead.
my loop includes 120mm single rad (80mm monstaaa) , cpu/pump combo, gpu, res.

my plan was to go res -> cpu/pump -> gpu -> rad -> back to res

appreciate any and all advice =)

It really depends on where you have things placed that will determine the best route for your tubing. Outside of having the res right b4 the pump, loop order is basically irrelevant. Go with what works and is the easiest to for your setup.

It's gonna go in a small mini itx case so my hoses will be very short in length

That's fine. Loop order will not affect temperatures one way or the other. Just make sure you have your resevoir right before your pump. The rest is just personal preference.
