Should I split the loop into two? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
Well today I got the expected 35Xs and the EK dual V2 top.

Temps went down a bit. I will let it sit for a day to get the last bubbles out from some of the places.
Flow seems to increase, so yeah, I don't think I will add another radiator. Its already getting pretty crowded under the motherboard anyway

But I am considering adding the "old" D5s I just took out, after the GPUs and before the radiators to increase the flow, and suck those pesky bubbles from the GPU blocks.
Since I'm using QDCs, its pretty easy if I find a place to put the pumps.

Seems right or just useless?

You most likely won't notice a temperature decrease, and you might even see an increase. Although considering you already have the pumps and that you have QDCs I'd just go for it. If the added pumps don't do anything you can sell them knowing you aren't giving up any performance.

I reviewed your build log to check which components you have and what the set-up looks like. Two D5s with bitspower tops are more than enough for your loop, which really points to some blockage in one of the blocks. Did you flush your rads before you built the loop? That's the most common cause of gunk build-up in a new loop.

Great build by the way. I got my hardware porn fix for the day on your build log. Nothing quite like those "square thingys".

I would probably totally think about joining that group.

It's bad that I am debating between a couch (I have only my desk chair, and a few kitchen chairs) and a water loop*...

*And by debating, I mean "Nah, when am I ever going to use the couch, I totally need to drop $600 on water cooling gear"

Thanks

Yeah I flashed all 3 radiators several times with distilled water, shook the hell out of them.

Most likely if I have something bothering the system, its before the radiators.
When I started settings things up, I used parallel connectors for the SLI. The system was just not powerful enough to push water all the way to the last GPU.
Even now I have a few bubbles at the GPU blocks.

If all goes to hell, I might have to take everything apart and re-check it all, but I really don't want to do that.


The 35X which came in today did increase the flow tho.
Even got 6c off the GPUs, which is pretty awesome.

Took me just 15 minutes to replace the pumps, without any need to drain the system. QDCs are just god like items
What I'm going to do is add the D5s after the GPUs and before the radiators, and see how this will affect the system.

Haha yeah.
I myself was planning to buy a new TV for my work room.
Think where that money went

I wasn't able to verify exactly how many 90 degree fittings you have, but I have experienced drastic flow reduction using them. I had one build with 8 90 degree fittings and the flow was just terrible. I ended up swapping them with 45 adapters + 45 compression and the flow was noticeably increased.

Even still, if you check out EtheEnthusiast on youtube, he's got something like 12 90 degree fittings, quad SLI, mobo blocked, two cpu blocks on an SR2, and more rad than you can shake a stick at. He's running all that on two pumps, which really makes me concerned that you have some form of blockage or flow restriction. I know taking everything apart and checking every piece/component is a monumental pain in the ass, but you've got such a nice rig going, you kind of owe it to yourself
