Help making my water cooling loops look better - Page 6

post #51 of 115
Thread Starter 
Yes, I pulled off the plastic. I just did a 4 hour folding run with the side of my computer removed so the fans had room temperature air, and my temps dropped 10C. So, it's still hot, but better when the fans aren't pulling from behind the motherboard. I have decided to redo my loops to be a single loop. I will be adding a 3rd 240 rad and mounting all three rads so they don't pull air from my case. Should I put both pumps in the loop or forget one?

Both wouldn't hurt anything and it would add redundancy.

Yes I would keep both pumps, you have them why not use them. They will up the flow and add redundancy!

Totally agree!
You'll have more flow = better temps.
Just make sure the pumps are spinning at the same speed.

Thanks! Should I put the pumps next to each other in the loop or should I put them at different points in the loop?

If it was my system, I would put them at different points in the loop! You can look at my build, i explained how i did my loop. I have great flow and great temps! But if you can't put them in different points its not going to hurt anything putting them right next to each other!

Step down the size of the tubing. I assume thats half inch so it wouldn't hurt to bring it down a step.

Reduce the length of the tubing by routing it differently. Remember the order isn't important provided the pump comes immediately after the res.


Ideally you want to combine the two loops into one, but thats just me.

Get some better thermal paste too. I think there are better options for watercooling blocks than AS5.
