Building a unique desk PC Need help with water cooling loop

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
so I'm building a PC inside a desk but I'm having trouble sorting out the water cooling loop any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

so far I'm looking at having 2 rads 2 pumps and 2 res and my loop goes Pump> Reservoir> Radiator> CPU block> pump> Reservoir> Radiator> VGA Blocks then back to the start of the loop

well any of this conflict with each other and more importantly would it work? or what is a better loop? biggrin.gif

thank you in advance smile.gif

If your going to run 2 pumps run them together Like two MCP655's and a bitspower mod top so they both are together they will work better like that instead of just putting them in random places !

and having 2 reservoirs is pointless I would just get a 400ML

Keep it simple man , cause if you make it complicated like that you will truly regret it!
hope this helped !

The reason for having 2 reservoirs is just symertry and the pumps were allocated in these places to have as much effect as possible on the 4 gpus and cpu giving the best possible temps

Reservoirs are a means to keep pumps supplied with water and secondarily to trap air for easy bleeding. Getting water into the system will be very difficult with the arrangement described

You would have MUCH better temps if you went

Reservoir> Pump> Radiator> CPU block> Radiator> pump> VGA Blocks then back to the start of the loop

Having it how you described would cause a high pressure zone in the first reservoir, and it could very likely crack and leak. Not only that, but you would essentially be running each pump independently of each other as the first one would not be feeding the second one. This would perform worse than if you had them together, as you wouldn't have as much pressure to help deal with the waterblocks.

The reason for having a reservoir is like Jakusonfire said:

Having it like you posted would very likely just end up being a PITA to fill and bleed, and perform worse.
