Couple of questions - (Including two radiators)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi there,

Id like to get a watercooling loop at the end of this month to compliment my rather nice new P182.

Its only going to be colling the chipset and CPU (with a three fan radiator) but how would i go about adding an extra radiator? (when i add a gpu block)

I know this isnt nessecarry but am wondering if it would be better adding this extra loop?

If it is can someone tell me how the loop would go?

If not can someone tell me how a loop with just a CPU Block, NB Block, resovoir, pump, rad and drainport would work

Well assuming you want the whole thing as one loop you just add the radiator into the loop. It can be in series in multiple ways but the best way is probably to go block > rad > block > rad > res > pump. Your other choice is to just go with one big Rad to begin with so you don't have to add another Rad later such as the 480GTX.

Also, it's probably not necessary to watercool the NB, most of them don't get that hot even when highly OC'd. A nice air cooler is all you need for that. I know most people that go water want to water cool as many components as they can but it just takes away from the overall effectiveness. Adds more restriction and will higher temps all around.

Thanks for the reply

Just trying to find the best ways of making it work with my case.. Design wise probably two nice 2fan sized rads.. one on top, one at rear

Sooo

Pump Out > CPU Block In, CPU Block Out > Rad 1 In, Rad 1 Out > GPU Block In, GPU Block Out > Rad 2 In, Rad 2 Out > Resovoir In, Resvoir Out > Pump In

Then it just fit the drainport at the lowest point in the system?

Thannks!

I wouldn't go from your pump right to the CPU as the pump dumps heat into the water. You're always best going from your Rad str8 to your CPU. Res > Pump > Rad > Blocks is usually the best way to run your loop. That way your blocks (especially your CPU) are getting the coolest water.

Exactly, looks good. Good luck.
