Hey guys looking for a suggestion or two.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just got some new goodies I will list now.

- corsair 900d
- 2nd gpu
- 2 water blocks for my gpu
- new mcp35x w/ ek ddc x-res 140 csq
- bunch of compression fittings.

-what I had already-

- XSPC Raystorm 750 RS360
- older 240 rad (died when testing for leaks)

When migrating to my new case I will be adding the the new stuff to my loop.
Here is what I'm needing help with. ATM I have one 360 rad. I will be placing an order for a 480 and prob another 240 in a month or so to add in to my loop. So as of now I have the one 360 rad, two pumps and two res. would it be okay or even worth my effort to run both pumps and res's? I like the idea of the extra res but would I run into a conflict with two different pumps?
My idea for a loop right now is
xspc pump/res > CPU > ek res > mcp35x pump > gpu's > 360 rad > xspc res/pump.

If that is okay for now. This brings me to my next question. My 360 rad. I can top mount it but have A. Push config or B. pull config. Doesn't look like push pull will work up top with out putting fans on top and out of the case which I won't do.
Other option is put the 360 in the bottom of case and can push pull..

This will be much easier when my new pumps come in but until then these are my options.

Thank you guys in advance for any advice.

Your feeding a second res with a pump, so it wouldn't affect the pump at all...unless the first pump is uber underpowered and the second one empties the res before it can be refilled by the first pump. Most people run a second pump on the same top for redundancy in case of a pump failure. Personally i don't see a need for a second res, use the new one and sell the old one.

As for push or pull, do push. Unless you have crazy high static pressure fans push will perform better. Push/pull is more for stupid thick high fpi rads when you don't want a 3000rpm fan blowing your ears away.
