GPU blocks with jetplates and flow direction what's the temperature impact of reverse flow?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
So I am curious if you were to run the water reverse flow through a jetplate gpu block what would be the performance impact if any?

No difference? 5c? 2c? 10c?

Thanks

If the coolant temps vary any, it's a negligible amount from my experience. I've ran loops in both directions and not seen any noticeable temp increases. In fact, my current loop feeds my GPU->Rad->CPU->Rad->Res/Pump. Max temp I've seen is 38.5C with a 4.6ghz 6600k and a 1600mhz 980Ti Classy. Best of luck with your loop. thumb.gif

I don't mean the loop order or coolant temp, I mean the inlet and outlet on the actual block. There seems to be zero actual hard data on the flow, I am wondering if EK or anyone has actual numbers.

Maybe @EK_tiborrr has some numbers on the flow difference.

Anyway you can get the info from him? or how should we get it ? smile.gif Doubt he will respond to Pm's smile.gif Also Temp difference would also be welcome.

OP: Small theoretical difference in both hydraulic and thermal performance but virtually immeasurable in real life. The margin of error between data acquisition is higher than the difference.
