Hey, I'm glad this post is still here, because I am having he same delimma due to having 3 radiators , 1 cpu, 1 gpu for now, but a second one later, and pump/res combo. So order doesn't matter really? Because I have the thermaltake core x9 and 2 rads will be on top, one on side. I use to go pump/res- rad- cpu- rad- gpu- pump/res. but with the core x9 setup, the routing would be better going pump/res - cpu - rad - gpu- rad- rad- pump/res. would that be ok?

The purpose of a second pump is to offset high restriction blocks and/or redundancy for safety purposes. That said, having a pump directly before a res and at the very end of a loop completely misses either purpose. Given MOST systems are not restrictive enough to require 2 pumps, the only other purpose is redundancy. So placing the pump either a) directly after the first, or b) in between the cpu and gpu block -which is primarily for high restriction situations only - are the only remotely sensible options

It would be better if you post a pic of your set up, But keep it simple. Res before pump thumb.gif

I'm done. Went res/pump , rad , cpu, gpu, rad , rad, res/pump
post #25 of 28
ok I must have misread your question post - the mentioning of pump twice made me think there were 2 in your build. my bad

Reservoir>pump is all that matters. beyond that try to keep the right angle fittings to a minimum and shortest possible tubing run.

Googled watercooling loop order and it directed me here so yea glad it's still here lol.
I vote for #3. In my loop I'm planning on running it res pump ~ cpu ~ ex 240mm rad ~ GTS 120mm rad ~ 2 980ti's in sli ~ xt45 240mm rad ~ back to res.
