would this rad setup work?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have almost no water cooling experience besides things I have read on here so I'm hoping for some thought on this kind of setup. Im going to be building a custom case for my next build an would like to keep it as tight as possible. So here is my idea, Id like to take two radiators with front and bottom threads and hooking them together with sli fittings and feed both of them through one line. I don't know if that makes sense so I attached a couple pictures. Let me know what you think.

You will need more space than that.
I would just run the rad in series.

There isn't much, if any, difference in cooling performance between rads in series and rads in parallel; so use whichever is easier to route.

Thanks for the feedback guys, I guess I could just try both and see what works best its would only cost a few fittings.
