Custom loop decisions..

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 


Hey everyone,

Trying to build my first rig and its time to determine acrylic tubing routes. I actually want to use single loop with double reservoirs and double pumps because i want every part to use all 3 rads inside this rig.

Now I know this is a little unorthodox but I was really wondering if this loops cause me problems or performance losses because of 2 fountain effects in a row with serially installed pumps afterwards. I mean I have doubts that water will flow from right reservoir's bottom to its top from the silver pipe inside of it which is necessary to use fountain effect?

My second option is to go from monoblock to gpus and use all 3 rads serially. If it wont change temps that much I really like the looks of that loop. It will be much more cleaner.

Could use some experience here. Thx smile.gif

Looking at the setup, I don't think you'll run into any performance issues or problems as far as practical water cooling goes. I'm unsure about the fountain effects mentioned, and it's possible one of the reservoirs may retain water pressure (the first one would I think? it would have water pressure to push fluid to the second res) so it may not have an active fountain effect. Of course, since I'm inexperienced with reservoirs with fountain effects and running dual reservoirs, I could be wrong.
