An idea, not sure if possible though?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So I want to liquid cool the normal stuff, you know CPU and GPU, with a Phobya xtreme 1080 rad mounted externally. Now my idea that I'm not sure about, can I have more then 1 pump and reservoir inside? So I can do the CPU and GPU with one loop then have a second loop for RAM, HDD and MoBo?

Please do not tell me "don't bother with the second loop you won't get a performance boost from cooling those parts." I've decided I want to.

Thankyou. smile.gif

EDIT: The RAM, HDD and motherboard will have a separate radiator inside the case.

Sure you can have a dual loop setup, with separate pumps and res's. It is true it's not really worth it in most cases it's going overboard, but this is OCN, where you'll find lots of rigs with dual loops ...

It's not possible without adding another radiator. The MoBo, RAM, HDD, etc don't generate much heat at all. One 120mm radiator should be enough.

A dual loop would be purely aesthetic though, and have absolutely no performance increase. It's commonly used when you have the CPU on it's own loop, and the GPUs, mobbo, ram, etc. on a different loop as overclocking the CPU is really thermal based.
