How much tybing is suggested to get for a 2 loop system?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am needing to order new tubing but I cant remember how much I ordered last time and it was way way to much. So in a 2 loop system in a 24x24x18 case, would 5 or 6 feet still be to much? my case is a Mountain Mods Extended Ascension.

You're sure you want dual loops? The only benefit to dual loops is the ability to maximize CPU overclock by temperature regardless of GPU load. What you lose is radiator efficiency by wasting radiators when either GPU or CPU are not being used much.

The amount of tubing you need will depend on how you design your loop, so plan it out a bit first to figure out how much you'll need, then double that number. You want to have some extra tubing to play with and make mistakes.

If your planning on watercooling your Ram, Chipsets, and CPU, as well as your two GPU's, then I can understand the want for two loops. Having a dedicated loop for your GPU's can be quite nice and help with OC'ing. The same goes for the other components.

It all really depends on how your going to set up your loop and what kind of fittings your going to use. If you want to have straight tubes, you definitely will not need to buy a lot of tubing, this route requires quite a bit of $$$ for compression fittings though. To play it safe, why not just buy the standard 10ft packages of Primochill Advanced LRT?
