Do i need Two loops?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok i just bought my 3rd 470 and as of right now this is what i have

Running 2 470s and I7 920 OC to 4ghz on 1 Loop

Pump MCP 355
And black ice GTX 360

So now that i will add my 3rd card i was wondering can my pump and rad be enough?

Or can i buy another RAD and this one pump be able handle it?

Thank you

I would add another rad to the loop to handle that extra GPU. Something like at 240, or 360 if you can fit another one.

Keep the single loop. I would definitely stick in another radiator. A 240 will do, but if you can stick in another 360, why not

Nice rig by the way.. looks familiar.

Keep 1 loop and get the biggest rad you can fit. Your pump will have no problems. Im running the same pump with 3 rads and 3 blocks with no issues.

1 loop is sufficient, you just need more rad
