Advice for SLI Loop - Page 2

post #11 of 13
distilled water and a silver kill coil...

I don't think that loop order matters, I have set up so many water cooling system in so many different orders and the fact remains the same, loop order matters for about 15-20mins then the system is up to temp and the loop matter is out the window

Set it up the best way it works for your case and as said use as little tubing as you can.

1 pump(MCP655) will do it, and a 360 radiator should be able to cool those cards with that CPU no problem, if you want better temps get another rad, doesn't have to be another 360.

I would recommend getting the EK blocks with the EK SLI adapter for the 480s

Fantastic info everyone. Thank you for taking the time to respond. I am leaning towards doing a 2 loop system. So is everyone in aggreance that running a Y splitter before the cpu and gpus is a bad idea? Like I said before that if I did I would have 2 pumps, with one running each branch.

+1, for the simple reason of heat saturation, loop order hardly matters and really only effects your transit temps. Generally speaking though has others have mentioned, GPU after CPU might give you 1~2C cooler at the CPU. Just make sure your res is before your pump so that it's always supplied with fluid.

I'm against the idea of splitting the loop or dual loops for simple systems as it generally just adds additional restriction. Unless you have two pumps or your system is balanced correctly it's largely extra $$ for very little returns. See the following article by swiftech.
