Question, if your running 3770k with two 680 gtx's. Would one ex360 work with one pump/reservoir or would that be total overkill to have a ex240 just for the cpu and ex360 for the two gpus? would it be better on the same loop (one reservoir and pump) or separate loops (two reservoirs and two pumps)?

Im probably going to regret this, but, i'd would like to throw out there a work in progress, with the aim of getting some ideas for my 'builders block'- id like ideas about possible neater tube re routing (not the cables, i have just put in an order to http://www.moddiy.com/categories/Cables/?sort=bestselling-great store, check it out people)

Possible re positioning of my a) Pump b) my 120 radiator.

Ideally id like to get a cover as in Photo# 3 , ive tried contacting the site the rig was on but no reply-it must also be noted that i do not have the tools to make such a cover, nor are there people who would make such a cover over here without me having to sell my soul or some other part of my anatomy redface.gif

So im looking for sensible 'outside the box' thinking please thumb.gif

The rig was like this till a few weeks ago:



It is a Haf 922 that i modded somewhat, i have 4 x HDDs in a Lian Li drive bay holder. I removed the drive bay cage for less clutter. it was suggested by my wife of all people, that i should re introduce the drive bay cage, and place my pump in the 3.5 bay area-what say you?

If i revert to the above photo, i don't like the clutter of the 120 radiator on the floor (UNLESS OFC I HAD THAT DAMN COVER tongue.gif)


My rig is currently setup this way:



No floor clutter, tubes re routed, 120 radiator mounted in the exhaust fan area, but still the issue of that unsightly (but still kick a** ) pump being visible.

Ideally something similar to the below photo is what i would like to aim for:



So, im throwing this out to the community in the hope that i will be able to get some ideas-please feel free to express yourself as you like, even negative criticism is positive at times.

I want to spend as little money as possible, so save for a few fittings and the cables that i need, i would like to avoid expenses (very hard to do when water cooling) and just possibly just re arrange the 'furniture'.

(ofc if i were ever able to get or make a cover that would involve expense).

I will gladly be giving out rep to the helpful and imaginative ideas wink.gif

NOTE TO THE HAWKEYED AMONGST YOU- i am aware of the kink between the gpu and 120 rad, that will be addressed when the extender fitting arrives.

Than you all in advance for your help thumb.gif

Damn, you are like reading my mind because you are making the loop which i desire so much to do of my (almost) exact build. (btw, why did you do the tubing between the cpu block to the vrm so long even though you have a 45 deg?)



and a little question to everyone else: would a 240+120 suffice for a 3570k + M5V Block + 7950 (the one in my sig) ?

I took a look at Martin's optimizer and I doubt you would be happy with a single 360 if you plan to overclock. If you plan to run stock then you could get close to 10 deg. C on a single 360 if you get a good one.

http://martinsliquidlab.org/pump-and-radiator-optimizer-spreadsheet/

Yes this is only test data, and probably does not have the exact blocks you will run but I believe that a little data up front makes better decisions.

Other people will tell you to just jump in and do it. If you have an unlimited budget, or unlimited time and plenty of cash to pay restocking fees that's probably a workable plan. thumb.gif

Thanks pgdeaner, interesting read. Seems like a large impact for cpu and two gpus on one 360 and 5 1/4 bay reservoir pump. My thoughts would lean towards using the 240 for the cpu on it's own dedicated loop and the 360 on the two 680's. Another option I guess would be to run the two pumps in series to increase water flow.

The rule of thumb is a 120 for every block in the loop then an extra 120 on top.
There are no real benefits to running a dual loop,temps dont suffer running as a single loop.
240 + 360 is a nice amount of rad face,i would recommend that.

Would one reservoir and pump be enough to run that one loop?

Yes.

There is no harm in redundancy tho.

Are you talking about two bays running in serial?
