Merging (3) dedicated lines to (1)

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I am about to change my current setup and I had a question about a proposed change.

Currently my system has (3) dedicated lines with no reservoir in the configuration below:

PUMP -> CPU -> RAD
PUMP -> GPU -> RAD
PUMP -> MOBO/RAM -> RAD

I would like to possibly eliminate the MOBO/RAM radiator and merge it with my GPU line. Keep in mind I would want to still use all (3) pumps.

The end result would be this:

PUMP(#1) -> CPU -> RAD -> PUMP(#2) -> GPU -> RAD -> PUMP(#3) -> MOBO/RAM -> PUMP(#1)

So you see its one continuous loop. My concerns are raising the heat of cooler running items such as the cpu from the combined heat of the GPU/MOBO/RAM. I would think that the radiators 360’s which would have 6 fans on each radiator (push pull) would be more than capable of keeping the heat down.

Thoughts?

Ram and mobo doesn't put much heat in a loop anyway. So I think you would be fine. You could even get away with just 2 pumps.
