Connect radiators in parallel to increase cooling by radiator! - Page 4

post #31 of 52
Thread Starter 
Hmmm, I may go and get another heatercorem to test this out, but the fans could be expensive... I have 4 fans on my current heatercore, so another 4 fans will be about $30. Plus I will have to run to homedepot to grab some more tubing and a various fittings to split the line and then rejoin it. This could turn into a $60 buck expirement, but hey! my birthday in soon so....

I see a science project...

When I finally get money and time to do this I will record ambient temp, cpu temps for idle/load, and water temps idle/load (after about 2-4 hours). I will record these values for single dual heatercore, 2-dual heatercore serial, and 2-dual heatercore paralell.

i think this is a waste of money. since for 2 pump and 2 120x120 rad will cos about the same as one pump and one 120x360 rad.

i want to try out the experiment cos i am changeing my watercooling system on next wensday. but too bad i have 1x 120x120 rad and 1x 120x240 rad. so it wont work! any one can send me a 120x120 black ice extrema rad, if i have it i could do a report on it with picture, since my girlfriend will leave me on wensday and i will have lots of time.

by the way this is the best watercooling "discusion"(may be i will spell this wrong) that i see so far!! lots of input and look very pro!! (and please dont give me warning again because of my spelling and gramma cos english is my second lang and i am trying very hard to keep up my post)

The radiators in my picture are intended to be 120 x 240.

thats even worst the price of it is only going to increase when is 120x240.(cost even more than 2x 120x120). the point of water cooling is to cool the cpu to the temputer of the water, and from my experiance from water cooling 1 x 120x360 with do it. you do not need 2x 240x120
(can you stop giving me warning who ever it is)

The radiator isn't the only factor in how well your CPUs cools. Flow rate, volume of water, difference in the temp of water and cpu temp, ect. This design allows for maximum flow rate over the CPU. This will help the system cool a lot.

Exactly. Paldovi, I would suggest you split the line, go to the two pumps, pump them separately into the 2 heatercores, then put a Y fitting to pump it into the block.

That exactly what I was thinking. You would get very high flow rate in the water block. Does homedepot sell Y fittings?

Also, the larger the resivoir the better. I am thinking about getting a larger resivoir for my system. (I currently have a 1 gallon):

You bet. As a last resort, you could spend teh 5 bucks to order one off a watercooling site, i.e. frozencpu or equivalent. That's too expensive though, HD more than likely will carry them. I have never looked for the Y myself, only a T.

One thing wrong with your diagram--you need to have the res go directly to your pump(s) rather than through a rad and then to a pump--the res is to make sure the pumps (s) never experience cavitation (run dry). the best way to do this (short of submerging the pump(s)) is to charge the pumps by gravity from an elevated res.
