im sure this has been talked about alot. but two radiators? and will a Laing DDC-Pump 12V DDC-1T do the job?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Pretty new to wc. have done my fair share of reading/research. kinda just wanting a few more opinions on my rig/ soon to be. (if my pump can handle it being the main question) pump
> cpu
> 140 rad
> gpu
> 120 rad
> res.

i have the alpha cool nexxxos 120 kit. (i know for the most parts kits stink) but has treated me well so far. Got it as a starter to build off of. iI have the kit installed, and just wanting to get a water block for my evga 660 ti ftw sig 2.

I know alot prefer just to use 1 rad being 240+ but i really like what my case would look like with the two rad set up.
I do play on doing minor oc. nothing crazy just something easy, stable, and still pretty low temps. i have a x4 phen. ii 3.0 at 3.6mhz. that doesnt see over 35 c.
mainly want block for gpu to pull more heat off it. cuz it tends to heat up my north bridge quite a bit.

So are two rads just as good/ or worse than using 1 big one?
Do u loose alot of pressure using 2? ( i know this varies with pumps, mine says it has 13 feet) but dont know how much u loose trough rads.
For what im using for could i get away with just using the 1x 120 rad?

first post. very sloppy i know, i use forums to just read and gain info but was wanting more info on this. and could not find anything specific.



picture is my current set up i plan on putting second rad as exhaust where back fan would be.

If your intending doing cpu and gpu I would suggest putting a 240 in the top of your case if it will go as a 140+120 will not give you a lot of head room for overclocking smile.gif

rads have very little restriction, thus very little impact on flow rate
