Loop Order - Page 3

post #21 of 25
Which ever there setup is easiest, the order doesn't matter. 1 the water won't move any faster through a certain part once their in a loop (unless of-course the area that it has to move through increase's Like a big radiator) 2. The only temp that matters is the mean water temperature. It won't make your radiator any more effective to have it before your CPU, (if anything you'd want the hottest water hitting the radiator).

I used to run res>pump>cpu>rad>res, but now I do t-line>pump>rad>cpu>gpu>t-line. Both ways seemed to work just fine.

Use the order that gives less tubing, it will make very little difference to temperatures either way (all other things being equal). Vapor did a test on this, and found that even having three MCP355's before the block resulted in, at worst, a 0.2C difference:



With one pump you will not notice the temperature difference.

Also:

Less tubing = lower restriction = faster water flow through the CPU block = better the heat transfer rate = lower temps.

Empirical evidence of the increased flow rate improving the heat transfer rate can be shown from Skinnee's CPU block tests:



Note that adding more and more pumps will lead to higher temperatures as the pump heat load will soon overcome the increase in cooling performance.
