need a second set of eyes

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi
I need some help, I have a CaseLabs STH10 but i need to change it to get more cooling, but my problem is that I am not able to think logically right now.
As of today, I have two loops, one for the video cards and one for the the motherboard, but when I rebuild it I will have the ability to switch between one and two loops

Here is the structure.
loop 1:
FrozenQ Reservoir (1)
Twin pump (1)
RAM cooler
Mosfet cooler
CPU cooler
Chipset cooler
RAM cooler
Radiator 480 (1)
FrozenQ Reservoir (1)

Loop 2:
FrozenQ Reservoir (2)
Twin pump (2)
GPU 1
GPU 2
Radiator 480 (2)
Radiator 360
FrozenQ Reservoir (2)


Will this work if i do this:

FrozenQ Reservoir (1)
Twin pump (1)
RAM cooler
Mosfet cooler
CPU cooler
Chipset cooler
RAM cooler
Radiator 2x480 (1)
FrozenQ Reservoir (2)
Twin pump (2)
GPU 1
GPU 2
Radiator 2x480 (2)
Radiator 360
FrozenQ Reservoir (1)


I put a drawing in so you can see what I mean.

Red line is Motherboard loop
Blue line is video card loop
Green line is required for one loop
Yellow dot is shut-off valves

by closing valve 2 and 3, while 1 and 4 are open, will i have two loops.

but by closing valve 1 and 4, while 2 and 3 are open, will i have one loop

Thanks for all your help and any suggestions

While 2 and 3 are closed and 1 and 4 are open you def have 2 separate loops.

It is very hard to follow but it does also seem you have it right for making just one loop.

It would be neat to see this in action.

Can I ask why you want to do this? Are you folding? I would figure in any situation where everything isn't being stressed to 100% all at once you are better off with just one loop. If everything is going to be stressed all at once then I get why you would want the things that can be ran at a higher temp on a separate loop... is that your thinking on this? To be able to switch back and fourth between the best of both of those scenarios?

something like that yes,
I also have the problem that in summer it can get extremely hot where I am, so I need to have the ability to add an water chiller so I can cool the entire system using just one chiller.

ill try an make a log when i start this project
