Need some advice regarding my loop.

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi people, I'm currently using Swiftech Mcp355 pump on my loop. This is how my loop goes.

Reservoir>120mm Rad>GpU>Processor> 240mm Rad>Reservoir.

Now I'm deciding whether to watercool my mobo as well. Ok here will be my question. Does this loop good enuf to handle my mobo as well? because I'm kinda afraid that a 120mm and a 240mm Rads couldn't handle it. Then, it would be a waste to buy the waterblock for mobo. That's my question. Thanks guys.

just a quick question why are you going GPU first instead of Processor?

Or am I just reading it wrong?

Erm, why can't I go for the Gpu first o.O?

Doesn't matter what you use first. The loop is fine but if possible I would suggest

Res > 120 Rad > GPU > 240 rad > CPU > res

This way the water gets a chance to cool down a bit before hitting the CPU. On a normal pc your GPU is gonna dump the most heat.

The order in your loop doesn't matter. The temps will stabilize themselves pretty evenly over your entire loop no matter where you place what. All that matters is that your pump is right after your rez as to not let your pump run dry and burn up.

As for the OP's question:
Mobo blocks are pure bling. Air cooling is way enough for your mobo. If you have a burning desire to get rid of your money, go buy more rads or more fans to get your rads in push/pull. Or a sexy new fan controller.

If you're not gonna do any of that, then send the money to me.

Seriously, the order in your loop makes no difference at all.

Haha. Thanks for the advice bro. I will arrange it again when I made my choice whether to go watercool for my mobo as well =P

Well, the order of loop is not a matter to me at all. As long as it's organize and neat, then that's a perfect order loop to me.
