Correct loop sequence

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What is the correct or best loop sequence? Is it Pump>Rad>CPU>T-line or should it be Pump>CPU>Rad>T-line?

you will want your radiator before your CPU because you want to give your CPU the coolest water possible, so it can absorb the most heat from your CPU.

You want your pump to push the water in your radiator, so the pump needs to be before it.

You want your reservoir or t-line feeding into your pump, so you can prime your pump properly when you fill it.

so reservoir -> pump -> radiator -> CPU -> reservoir

and a t-line simply replaces a reservoir.

as long as you have the res before the pump, the rest doesnt really matter what order its in, the temp of the loop doesnt vary more then 1-2C

from what i have read its better to have the easiest runs (no kinks etc)then a specific order.
