another "should this work" post

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
So my new case Should be here Wednesday, I am thinking about going this route. Where i am having second thoughts is running the 2 reservoirs. I read on a diff post that 2 res might not be the best way to go. But if i do go with 2 res does the 240 res need to be full (no air pocket)? I have the 2 rads, GPU block and 240res already and still deciding on cpu block and pump. Would a dual bay res/pump work with my config. Im only going to be cooling my fx8350 and asus r9 290. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Why do you want two reservoirs? There is absolutely no benefit to two reservoirs, I mean I guess if it's for aesthetics it'd be fine. You can use an aquapipe injection port to bypass the issues causes with bleeding. Theoretically there shouldn't be any issues. If you've not already ordered the radiators I'd switch to push pull fans with a 30mm rad on the top rad, or with a 45mm if it fits.

I agree with ZytheEKS. There is no benefit to running two reservoirs, other than aesthetics. If you do use two however, ideally, the first reservoir needs to feed the second reservoir, which then feeds the pump. If they are not directly after each other in the loop, then a pump after each reservoir would work best.
For example, the loop I am working on now runs as follows:
res1->pump1->GPUs->rad1->res2->pump2->CPU->rad2->res1

And no, if you go with the reservoirs, you do not want a bay res/pump combo. The bay pump would be pumping right into the tube reservoir and would just be a waste IMHO.

So to sum it up, 2 reservoirs will work as long as the pump is after the second res, or there is a pump after each res(unless the second pump would feed into the second res)

Yeah im going with others, unless its for looks there is no point. The ONLY thing is that technically adding more liquid to a loop will slow down the time it takes for the loop to get heat soaked under load but it will eventually happen so you wont get cooler temps in the end anyways.

Yes, it would be just for looks. I have this image stuck in my head on how it would look and I am willing to take a little performance hit. Im almost thinking that I could make the tube res into a pass thru by using a pipe going from top to bottom inside the res and just filling the tube. What pump would you guys recommend? I would stay around the $50 to $75 range for a pump, but would go higher if need be. Thanks again.

I got to be honest with you dude, 2 res are a waste, the chances are the tube res will be too big to even fit. Make it simple. What watercooling parts are you intend to use more specific? The corsair 760t is a good case bit once again its designed for the h100 coolers. I would recommend the bay res/top for the pump because you will save space. Other than that it looks good, maybe one 90 degree fitting to make tube routing easier and more neat. I would use 10/13mm tubes, easy to work with, specially in a small case like the 760t. One option could also be to mount the 240mm rad in the bottom and save 1 hdd cage.

You should pick whichever reservoir will allow you the cleanest, most desirable routing for your tubing thumb.gif

I would even go to add that if all you're cooling is a single GPU and only CPU you only need 1 of the 2 rads there. 1 360 rad should be more than enough to cool a single card and CPU. Heck, I'd even go as far and say that a single nice 240mm would be more than enough even.

More rad means lower fan speeds means more quiet. This is OCN, overkill doesn't exist here.

If you wanted more quiet you wouldn't go push pull then, minimal performance increase for 2 additional fans
