It isn't very pretty or special lol. I can take some pics when I get home. The card I have folding right now is not under water. I would love to get another water block but can't really spend the money right now
Once I do get the other block I need to redo the setup...I am going to see if the smaller of the 2 rads will fit on the back two 140mm fan ports. so I can avoid blowing hot air back into the case.
It consists of a 2x140 rad, a 3x140 rad, EK water block for my FX 3850 and Ek block for my 7970.
Flow is from the res to the pump, from the pump to my 3x 140 rad, from that to my cpu then to my 2x140 rad then to my 7970 then back to the res. temps stay pretty low until I have everything working at the same time...a lot of the problem is that my 240 rad is on the bottom of the case and blows hot air up into the case...then the top rad ends up with some of that hot air going through it. Before core 17 came out I was folding in linux on the 8350...it was getting about 65k-75kPPD at about 4.98GHz...I didn't fold on it all the time because I didn't like not being in windows for applications and games and because the AMD cpus use a lot of power especially when over clocked.
Maybe you guys can help recommend things to change for my loop once you see some pics.Edited by NBrock - 8/13/13 at 10:20am
