I didn't know you can have more than 1 pump in the loop
post #232 of 777
Multiple pumps, multiple rads, sky is the limit. Its all depending on how big you go. Seen some crazy builds that need more than 2 pumps to keep flow speed up.

Um...question...would it be better to have 1 loop for cpu and another for the gpu(s) or all in 1 big loop? Running multi pump and rad like you said?
post #234 of 777
Better is all relative. Each has pro's and con's. Its all what you are willing to spend, maintain, and personal preference.

Consider the possibility that you get a crappy pump (5-10% will crash within the first year statistically). With dual pumps on separate systems if one crashes it only over heats its section without the pump working, so you risk the CPU or the GPU but not both.

This will come at some cost tho.

Extra funding needed for all the extra pieces for both loops.

You will have to maintain 2 loops instead of just 1. Bleeding each one individually, draining and refilling individually at some points to keep things fresh.

Its all really what you are willing to do. As far as temps go, if done right a single loop will stay just as cool as 2 separate ones. It all boils down to you.

I see...thanks for the info!

Is it just me, or is the pump loud at 12V? I can hear it over the stock fans. At 7V it's "okay". 5V is pretty silent.

Stock it's pretty loud...and if it's a custom loop and it's not filled properly...even louder...

Its got a decent audible note, but not really that bad. If its THAT LOUD you may consider RMA'ing it as it may be faulty. I have 2 fountain pumps outside that don't even compare, they are much louder. My old GTX250 GPU during gaming mode at 100% fan speed over shadows the sound and I have to be on top of it at 50% to be able to hear it over the regular fans in the case.

Mine runs at 12v and stays around 3550 rpms consistently. I think its just about right personally. I can hear it so I know its working so I don't fret about the CPU cooking, but its no worse than the rest of the PC and with the speakers at a decent volume, I can't hear any of it anyways.

It's audible but not annoying, sort of a bit higher pitch than the stock fans and slightly louder.

What's the best way to top up up the water? I noticed a pocket of air.

Like Lucky23 I use a syringe...which I find its best...or thru a reservoir where you have a tube to let out air and one to fill up when needed...
