Need Help On Water Cooling

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Is it better to run a single loop or dual loops on this set up and is this a good single loop?

Need some help with this water cooling loop. Made a sketch of the single loop will this work?

CaseLabs M-8
Mother Board Asus Rampage lV Black Edition

Radiators 3 x XSPC AX-360
Water Blocks XSPC
Pumps 2 x Swiftech D-5 Uber 655s
Bitspower Mod Top for a single loop
Fittings Bitspower Compression
Tubing Primoichill Advanced LRT 1/2 in I.D. x 3/4 in O.D.
Fans x 15 NB PL-2

It looks fine to me - all you are cooling is one CPU, the motherboard and a pair of GPUs. You have dual pumps, good tops and good tube. Go for it.

A single loop is always more efficient, performs better, and CHEAPER too.
So, yeah, go for a single loop is my advise.

You have 5 blocks in series here, that can be a little restrictive.

So I would also get the two mobo blocks in parallel.
So from the CPU, the flow splits to the two mobo blocks, and rejoin again to the GPU blocks.

And feel free to try your GPU blocks both in parallel and series to see which one gets you better temps.

Thank you for the comments Daniel and Coffee.

May not install water blocks 1 & 4 on the memory.

On a dual loop using 1 Black Ice SR-1 360 radiator and one D-5 Pump to the GPUs.

Ran the Evga GPUs in series and Parallel on the previous build. The Evga Hydros ran cooler in Parallel by 5 degrees C as long as one fitting for the tubing is in the top GPU and one fitting in the bottom GPU as indicated in the sketch.

Not with both fittings top or bottom the GPUs ran hotter by 8 degrees C in Parallel configuration.
