btw you saying your pump is also a resivoir?

and I highly reccomend you use both your 240mm and 360mm radiator man... you need some cooling between the cards
Yeah it just seemed like too good of an idea to be practical!

The pump has a built in res. It's a pretty decent pump, bit pricey and bulky but performs well and has some nice features.

I actually tried out the radiators in combo like you guys advised. I mounted the 240 on the back of the case. And the 360 on the back of that with the radbox and a bladeless fan in between. In the end I wasn't very happy with the flow rates and the water was just moving waaay to slow.

I ended up just keeping the 360 running but putting the fans in a pull config. Boy did that make a big diffference. I'm idling now around 31C. The 2nd card maxes out at 70C and the CPU at 52. Massive improvement over the pull setup.

I've never seen my comp run so fast, so smoothly and so cool. My room is about 5 degrees cooler!

I'll either try to sell the 240 here or get a 2nd pump and run separate loops.

For now I'm gonna try and get my hands on some new ramsinks for both cards and I'll be set for a few more months.Thanks again for all your help!

Yea I agree....two separate loops might be the way to go. IMO you should have just got one big rad and a pump like the MCP655......would save you a lot of space and trouble configuring two loops. I get great temps with my setup....

Anyhow here's the ghetto rigged PSU shroud mod. REALLY easy and quick to do....



All I did was cut the side off a gallon plastic milk jug, then loosen the screws on the PSU mount a bit. I slipped the plastic in under the screw heads, then tightened them down.
I then held down the plastic while I duct taped it flat, then duct taped it to the rad. Simple as that! THis works really well.....

I hope all goes well with your loop, and you can always ask for help here
