Question about best loop layout.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Originally was going to do two separate loops. Didn't really like using a bay reservoir in the first place due to it being acrylic and already show signs of stress around the fitting ports when I remove the stock barb fittings that came with the res, which was going to be swiftech maelstrom, with dual PWM controlled MCP35X pumps for first loop, for vrms, ram, CPU, and chipset and 120.3 rad and then second loop for dual ATI HD7990 and 120.4, 120.2 was going to get a MCP-655 pumps and bitspower top/res.

Here the stress around the fitting ports. No didn't over tighten fitting, that was just removing the old stock ones.




So decided to do a single loop instead and eliminate the need for a bay reservoir, going to be using a dual top D5 bitspower top/res and dual MCP-655 pumps three radiators 120.4, 120.3, 120.2, chipset block, VRM's block, ram blocks, CPU block and two HD7990 video cards blocks. Need to know the best order for the radiators pretty much as other blocks are figure out already?




The way I was going to set the loop on, just waiting for more angle fittings, plus koolance Q3 panel disconnect fittings as going to bolt thur to center acrylic mid-plate I made, still have to make the holes one order is decided, and second MCP-655 pump to arrive. The loop order I was planing was pump>120.3 rad>VRM block> first ram block>CPU block> second ram block>chipset block> videocards blocks> bottom two 120.4 120.2 rads>back to pump/res return, not sure if it the best way?

The order does not matter. So put it in the order that is the most direct as far as tubing is concerned.

The water flows through the loop so quickly that essentially all the water in the loop is the same temperature.

Also you are better of with one loop instead of 2 so you are doing the right thing by going with one large loop over 2 smaller loops.
