I actually had them in parallel prior to series and the temps were identical.
I had a problem where the parallel connectors leaked so i switched to my current configuration.

You can just get a couple more fittings, and switch the bottom 2, and be running parallel. Like I said, even if the temps are the same, flow will be much better. But if the temps are the same, it means there is plenty of flow anyway.

You may also even try reseating the CPU, though the contact point on the H220 is particularly designed for the smaller 1155/1150 die, so it is not quite as optimal for 2011.

I thought parallel GPUs are more restrictive than in series.

I understand that the pump works better if you have another blocks or rads.

For True, someone has some loop with 2x240rad or H320+240rad with CPU+2 xGPUs? I want know what temps have, i want build some like that.

That is because apparently the h220 rad is very high in restriction if I recall correctly. These were the results I saw in Martin's test. So, putting a different rad and reservoir and the flow should be plenty. However, on the other side, if you are buying all these parts separately then perhaps you shouldn't consider the h220 in the first place...

no. Series has all the water run through both blocks, one after the other. Parallel has half of the water run through each block and rejoin after each, improving flow dramatically.

Not great... but they sit at 34C - 64C under stress test. Normal load for gaming is 55C max. Still better than the screaming fans and 70C. thumb.gif
Add another rad for better temps 64 is high.

My loop is clean but the pump started failing (again). I thought it was good after some air got caught in the pump before doing this (making any changes) and reporting it to Bryan. But it seems the pump is just flaky, like the last one. So frustrating.

My temps are pretty lame in this case, which I loath... This 650D is not for modders and has little room for cables.

Temps for the GPU's are:

Min 36C - Max 65C (using Kompressor stress test)

Gaming in BF3 takes the cards to 59C and they never break that.

I keep the case open now because the temps just get too high. I guess I need more exhaust, but this case is just lame in general.

You have like 3 Radiators in your system, how can your temps be that high? Maybe the Swiftech H220 Pump isn't live up to the hype?

No... just a 120 add for the back, and the rad that comes with the H220 up top. The pump is running on the CPU PWM connector.

This is where it sits as I type this:

DO NOT run pump off of mobo you'll kill the pump.

I don't have a choice ATM. The PWM adapter / hub / splitter they sent to use with it died yesterday... not really liking Swiftech's quality so far. I don't usually name my rigs, but if I do... this one will be called Cursed!!
