loop

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi I am adding a gpu waterblock to my loop I am thinking about just coming form the cpu to the gpu then form gpu to the res. Would that work pretty good? Here is a pic of my current loop

Yes that would work, you can go res > rad > cpu > gpu > res. It will be a little warmer water after the cpu but you generally want to keep your cpu cooler than your gpu.

Some people add a second rad, and go res > rad > cpu > rad > gpu > res to try and get some of the heat out after the cpu before hitting the gpu, but I read something the other day that said it can be worse I dont remember why though maybe someone else can shed some light on that (I was going to do that when I add my gpu in my loop)

Usually the only order that it matters is putting the res before the pump. The rest of the block and rads you can put it in the order that it suits you best, the water on the loop move so fast that the temp delta from the in take and the out is really low. You should keep the tubes as short as you can so the water have to travel less distance and it can cool more. thumb.gif
