Will this loop work?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey just starting to mock up ideas for a water cooling loop in an nzxt H440 with the HDD cage removed. Will the loop I have mocked up in the picture work? I was unsure about the loop going from radiator to radiator. top is 280 not 480*

Cheers

nothing wrong with putting multiple rads in a row.

It looks like you have the fans set up as pull. Generally push is preferred when not using push/pull.

I would assume the 360 is pull, and the 480 (which I would assume is 280) as push.

i planned on having the front rad as pull, top as push and a rear exhaust. so air in front and out top and back?

You would get the best performance by having both rads as intake from the outside of the case and then have the back of the case be exhaust. Having one rad blow hot air into another rad sorta defeats the point in my mind.

Age old debate - running both rads as intakes with limited exhaust also can turn the inside of the case into a convection oven, and can also add restriction to the rads impeding their performance. In that case, you wind up with temps on all of your other components far too high, and in some cases the loop components temps are higher.

Personally, I am a strong advocate of trying it both ways and seeing which is holistically better. All intake may drop your CPU temps two degrees, and wind up raising your VRM temps to the point you get throttling. You just never know what the overall effects will be until you actually try it both ways.
