Help Watercooling 4 Way-Sli Titan

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So guys, i planning building my own water cooled PC with a Corsair 900D, an i7 4770k, an Asus Extreme VI Maximus and 4 GTX Titan. I planned everything except water cooling the Titans, I know that i want them to be water cooled in parallel, should i use connectors or like the block that put on the 4 GPUs, too how do i setup them ?

Thanks guys

P-S: Also, I planning to use 2 480mm and 1 360mm radiators in push pull configuration and 3 140mm fans. So i would like to be able to control 8 corsair sp120 with the first channel, same with second channel, 6 fans with the third and individually control the others 3 140mm fans. I will be using Corsair SP120 high performance and Corsair AP140.

I would recommend a 4-way connector. It will look nicer and give you some support on the cards. Something like the EK Quad bridge on frozencpu. I have used a tri-sli bridge on a case and im planning on putting one in my own, so ive had some experience with them.

Hope that helps.

For a quad GPU setup, creating 2 parallel pairs, and then running the two pairs in series, is the best way to go to maintain a good flow rate, and minimize restriction.

The flow rate thru each of the 4 blocks is only half the overall flow rate, and the overall restriction is the same as a single block.


If you use EK blocks, they have a Terminal set up just that way.

They call it semi-parallel.

Agreed, that sounds like the best compromise between individual block flow rate and overall restriction.

Would that not be half the overall flow rate per card and the overall restriction of two blocks?

Yeah, that is what I was looking thanks, but I wanted to use Kryographic blocks so I found that on their site

I was just wondering if it was the same thing you showed me or if it was different

Each parallel pair would be half the restriction of a single block, so 2 in series would be the same restriction as a single block.

From looking at the picture, it's hard to tell for sure, but if those plugs allow you to thread them farther into the block than just at the ends as caps, and since they give you 6, I would make that assumption, then you could configure it as 2 parallel pairs in series same as the EK.

You are right, inverse sum of reciprocals doh.gif

Or, put another way, same flow through twice the area.

Was thinking about pumps for some reason.
