- 90º angled hose connectors
I plan on using the current rad/pump/res for the GPU's and then mount the EK rad externally behind, and leave the dcp4.0 and res inside where the D5 is right now, move the D5 to the drive bays. What do you guys think?
It's not like my temperatures are dangerous or anything, but I could get them much lower if I did separate the loops.
Temps wont be changed greatly at all,we have explained how you need to do delta checks to determine your loops effectiveness.
Dual loop isnt the answer most of the time.
Delta is around 15ºC now that I added the 3930k, this is when pushing everything at 100% load with Folding@Home.
Easiest thing would be to just add that EK 360 rad into the same loop, but wouldn't making 2 loops be much better?
Keep in mind money is very tight, so I'm only getting those things listed above, so it's either adding the XT360 into this loop, or making 2 different loops.Edited by kcuestag - 1/14/13 at 5:21am
