Why did you stack the radiators? I've heard that stacking radiators ain't gonna be good since subsequent rads will be using the heated air from the first rad, and heated air from a rad ain't gonna do much in cooling

The main reason is for space management, but you are right, I could achieve the same cooling performance with 2 triple rads in parallel (vs the current 3x in series)... I did taught about putting them in series, but I need a custom casing to hold them in the proper position...that's why they are in this position right now.
I have connections and this summer I will make the casing, mainly in aluminum, plus, it will hide the cables...

well i have seen more annoying water marks in my time... what is the point?
post #5 of 17
Triple stacked radiators = the same performance of a single radiator.

Also, the watermarks are horrible. I don't think you should worry about people stealing the pictures of this PC.

Common sense says it's actually better than 1 and as I said in the previous post: it actually compares with 2 in parallel...but what ever...

I've seen too many people taking pics of other PCs (even if they're not 4-way sli SR-2 monsters) and claiming that they are their own...it's not the best watermark ever but still I think it's better than nothing...

No, stacked radiators can actually be worse than a single one. This is because the added resistance of the second or third radiator reduces airflow and since radiators are 100% dependent on airflow it can actually REDUCE the total power of the radiator.

im with charlie stacked is worse your pushing hot air past the first one thru the other ones if theirs no cool air to keep them cool their just wasted space that makes your loop longer. You could be even adding heat to yout loop sence your water is flowing thru 2 rads that are getting hot air.

The water marks make an otherwise nice build, terrible to view.

I have temp sensors for intake air, loop temperature and exhaust air. On full load (LinX) when intake air is 23 C, loop temperature gets to 31 C and exhaust air is 30 C. If I added a stacked radiator it would be getting 30 C air which probably is pretty useless for cooling.
