y-cables should just be fine. That is a fan hub, which is directly powered from the PSU. Or you get a 2nd 4-pin PWM fan hub/splitter.

Cool, I've actually got 3 Phantek powered PWM fan hubs sitting on a shelf here, funny the things you don't think of at the time..lol

I'm guessing the pump on the 240 might be a stretch for a cpu block 2 x gpu blocks and 2x rads with a res?

Guess without the QDCs it should work, but with them... no idea.

Anyone here tried to add two graphic card to the loop of the EK Predator 360? I would like to add two Asus GTX 1080 Strix in the loop of the EK Predator 360, but I don't know if it can handle the cooling of 2 GPUs and 1 CPU....

Thanks for your help guys!

How would one know how to answer this question? I have an EK predator 360 and a 5930K cpu and founders 1080 and it cools just fine, but other than subjectively, how does one answer this question. Is there a standardized methodology someone has worked out? Perhaps there is a ceiling where the 360 just wouldn't cool no even with 100% pump and fan, but what % fan/pump is typical and what temps are typical for a 360. I was running FurMark yesterday at ten minute intervals and found:
at room temp was about 24C
Idle before starting FurMark GPU was 34C
10m into FurMark GPU 58C fan/pump 38%
20m 60C 39%
30m 61C 40%
40m 61C 40%
50m 61C 40%
I imagine I could add another 1080 GPU if I were willing to tolerate higher fan/pump speed acoustics. When I set fan/pump to 100% heat is really pushed out of the system, but its much too loud for casual game play. My bet is EK would answer yes to your question, but really you'd want to know how easily the two GPUs would be handled. It'd probably be important to know what ambient temperatures you expect and how well your case and fans handle heat and your anticipated 360 placement in your case. As a note I have a cramped case with obstructed fans and a Phanteks EVOLV ATX Mid Tower with the 360 exhausting into an obstructed top chamber (top is not resting on clips for added ventilation).

Agreed. I think from the thermals it should be possible, especially because the 1080 isn't such a hot card. But I am very certain that ther has to be a compromise of temperature and noise, because both can't be good at the same time with dual GPUs.

I was under the impression you can add 2 pieces to a predator. IE a rad and a gpu, 2 gpus, etc. I believe it's all about the pump and what it's capable of. A single 360 will probably cool a cpu and 2 gpus just fine. You're not gonna break any temp records though. My single 240 cools my cpu and gpu fine.

Maybe just get a normal block for the 2nd GPU, make the one with the normal block the top card and connect it directly with the closed ports on the prefilled cards (with fittings and tubes). Running 2 cards parallel is no problem.

Like one of those posts said. It becomes a tubing hassle with multiple qdc. If I were to add a second gpu I'd probably go with a regular block for the 2nd gpu as well.

Again a 360 rad will cool a cpu and 2x gpus just fine. Rule of thumb is 120mm of rad for each component. Not gonna break any records but it'll do the job.
