Pump Placement in Loop

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Well Right now i have my Res>Pump>Radi>Cpu>Res and i like its set-up nicely but since i have the 9800GX2 it blow's heat out the side rather out the back (I do not plan on WC the GX2) and it heats up my reservoir and it raised my temps by 5c so i have an idea to change my Loop but this would require me to have my pump suck from the Radiator and push Directly into the cpu, is this fine? i never see anyone have it in this order and i wonder why? to me it seems as this would be better for cooling, also lowering the pump temp and increasing lifespan?

If your using a res you want it right before the pump or you will starve the pump for water and get crap temp's...

Not really, a pump doesn't suck as well as it pushes, you want to keep your return or suction line as non-restrictive and free flowing as you can...Hey you can try it and see, it just takes a minute to redo it if it doesn't work for you...

No i Believe you, its just the way the Mcp655 is designed it makes things harder to keep a clean look without hindering functionality i have a bay res on the way and i have the micro res which im using now, so ill try to figure out a way i can set-up my loop, ill post a picture up here and see if you guys have any idea's - thanks

They are kind of a big clunky looking pump, they work great though....

oh yea they are one of the best

Here are some pics maybe you guys could help me figure out a Loop design.



See how the GX2 Blows hot air across the reservoir and Pump

Couldn't you just raise the res up higher right above where it is now? It might still get warmed by the PSU if you don't have a good rear exhaust fan...Or put the res over above the HDD bays and then flip your pump up and scoot it a little further down in your case... You know what I mean the pump body will rotate in its frame, you could have the inlet facing up on it and if you flipped the pump around the outlet would be facing the rear of the case...I don't know if it would look good but it would get your res away from the PSU.........

Id move the hard drives up and stick the res below them. Youre only having to switch the pump around then.
