Help with LOOP / adding NB block

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I've attached a picture of my supposed loop design with the added NB water block. As far as the loop goes, I haven't seen many people with this flow before, specifically where the reservoir is emptied into the top and pulled from the bottom into the pump. I mainly see the two ports on the bottom being used while the top port is plugged. Unfortunately this was the only way I could setup given my rad and case restrictions.

My first question is the most basic, is this flow a problem? I only ask because, like I said, I don't see it that often.

My next question is if I have enough rad/pump to handle an additional block (NB). I have a 240 rad with a push/pull setup with 4 fans and a MCP655 pump. I'm no longer OC'ing my Q6600 and my GPU is a nVIDIA 8800GT 512MB, pretty meager equipment I'd say.

Thanks for looking!

The flow looks pretty good if thats your only option. I would say though, that I wouldn't recommend just a 240 rad for all of that. Also, why do you need to cool your nb? Doesn't the stock cooler get it cool enough?

Afraid not, friend. I have a P5N-D mobo which comes stock with some crappy aluminum heatsink that is just not cutting it, so much so that I have a burn mark on my finger where I last touched it.

Asus had the good sense to paint it a copper color to fool us masses though, ugh. My case can house a 480 rad, which I was saving to upgrade when I go to a i7 and new GPU but it sounds like I might have to pull the trigger before hand, yes? Thanks!

Can anyone else add any input to the flow question and if my current setup can handle an additional NB block? Thanks!

I was running a 240 rad on just my cpu/nb/gpu, all at stock clocks and all were showing great load temps(Q9550 was at 45c, GPU was 36c, forgot what the NB was showing).

The only difference is that I ran it: RES/Pump>RAD>CPU>NB>GPU

I am now adding another 240 rad to open some room for overclocking.
