Adding 2nd DB-1 D-tek pump to loop

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Alright I currently have a db-1 D-tek pump installed in my loop. It cools my E8400 very very well. I am upgrading to the QX9770 and I've been reading that these chips are super hot, and I plan to OC.

I've read where people simply add a second DB-1 and have great flow. Since I have another db-1 already I want to add it to my loop to increase the flow. I need to know where to add it though? I haven't really found anything that explains where in the loop it should be added, do people chain them one right after another?

Here's a rough example of my loop, only the CPU is cooled in this loop. I have a seperate loop/pump for my VGA/chipset water cooling:

It's more beneficial to put the pumps in series. As in one flows right into the next one.

position one pump right after the next

it also serves as a fail-safe system

Thats the way I always run my dual, one right after the other...It will double your head and give you 30-40% more flow...And I always liked the redundancy of having 2 in series...
