Sure, the heat is the same, but the heat from the CPU wouldn't be directly dumped into the GPU block, which is what I believe xtcrulez wanted to avoid?

Maybe so, but perhaps you could even the flow out, by using different size tubing at specific points in the loop, or using some kind of restrictor, in addition to a more powerful pump, it could be possible to even the flow somewhat? Still, it's probably not worth going to the trouble…

No! Not greedy, we're all after getting more performance from our systems!

Yeah I don't like split loops either...You might try a re-mount that can make quite a difference in temp's....Thats the first thing I try if I think my temp's are off....

That is strange isn't it...Look in task manager and see if your cpu activity is going down to 0 or not at idle....You can see what app's are running also...

Adding a more powerful pump...just to add more restriction..? Not a good idea..for your temps or your wallet. Why not just go single loop and then add a more powerful pump?...Increased pressure in the blocks should yield as much, if not more, of a temp change..and with that bigger pump, you could eventually use a larger rad and incorporate your chipset or another gpu block to the mix!

i have an Ehiem 1048 so pressure isnt that big of an issue ...i think..

They only have 5 ft head. So yes, the pump is weak for high restriction loops.
Once again...

I think the idea is to avoid the heat from the CPU block being dumped into the GPU block, rather than just lowering temps per se. But other than a second, separate loop, or a couple of Y splitters, there doesn't seem to be a way to achieve this. The second loop is too much extra cost (I'd imagine) and the Y splitters are not a perfect solution as each block has different restrictive properties, and Y splitters on their own will reduce flow/pressure somewhat, or that's what I think is correct. That's why I suggested adding some restriction in an appropriate place so the CPU and GPU restrictions are more balanced, then adding a more powerful pump to offset the cumulative restrictions and increase over all flow...

Still, as said, there isn't really a worthwhile, cost effective solution, it would appear, unfortunately...

I would be more worried about heat dump from my GPU going to my CPU, than the other way around..thats just me though.
