You only need one res,you can run the pumps in serial as you say.

Guess I left out some details. It would be cheaper to get a second radiator and pump. I ordered an ex240 originally, full kit and was going to return it for the ex360 since I have the nzxt switch 810. I keep increasing the things I want to do as I move along. I have yet to return the 240 and the wheels were turning, thinking about using the 240 and the 360, which would use all the front bays but would be easy to run the two bays in serial, increasing water flow, reservoir and two radiators. Not like I need the bays anyways and I could grab an external cd rom if I wanted for cheap, run usb. If I didnt go two bays (yes, I'd have the extra cpu block block from the second kit), I'll have to keep reading and try to find a second pump to use in that case.

looks awesome - i read that you cant run that stuff for very long though, breaks down easily

Well I guess ill see. I always ran DI water but wanted to give something new a try. Wasn't messy and temps seems to be slightly lower but the "red" is definitely more pink with the nano fluid swirl but it still looks good.

This is very true, it's more-so for exhibitions and the like-pastel and X1 are the Mayhem coolants that can be used for an extensive time period, visit here, you will get the facts-looks nice though:

How ever if you system complex e.g to many blocks ect ect it wont last long at all.
Remember Aurora is for show peace and photo work. We do not recommend its use over long periods of time how ever we have had it running now for 1 year in 1 system with no problems. Aurora was never developed for the "normal" user but aurora 2 is being developed for the "normal" user.

There is a Mayhem's club also you may want to have a look at, it gives alot of useful info (mixing of dyes etc, proper usage)

Tell me something has to be wrong,

I added an external radiator stand to my existing loop, On the external (a phobya bench edition stand) I have 2 ex360's and a HWlabs Black Ice GTX360. Inside the case I have 1 ex360 & a Phobya G-Changer 240. The loop has 2 pumps (MCP655 & a MCP350), and 2 reservoirs (Phobya Balancer and XSPC Dual Bay)

After adding the 3 additional rads, additional pump, additional res.. My temps are exactly the same (CPU 60c F@H, GPU 40c F@H.. GPU temp is fine, but I'm not happy about the CPU temp being the same)

Something has to be wrong right? I was under the assumption that the extra rads would bring me closer to ambient, I'm still some 33c over ambient like I was prior. mad.gif

I'm not currently running CCL in my Helix Red 250mm but the only leaks I ever had was when I pulled it apart to clean it. I didn't make sure the helice was lined up correctly and I wanted to be able to get back into it easier than when I separated the caps from the tube so I didn't crank on the caps. So the coolant wasn't flowing as well as one would expect and because there were self imposed obstacles for the coolant to flow through, it started trickling out the top cap and bubbling up around the top of the bottom cap. So if you ever have one apart I recommend making absolutely certain that the openings line up exactly with the ports or you'll have issues. I also wrapped one circuit of PTFE on each end of the tube and made sure that it was handtight + 1/4 turn. Leaks solved. I still have to replace the CCL, but it's mostly a cost thing that has kept me from doing so since I have to purchase an 8" CCL that fits the lighting scheme that I run. Although I may do purple or UV to make the tubing glow and just add a couple more Red light strands to keep things red. smile.gif
