a lot of money spent on those
Yeah I will probably cut down on quickconnects in the rebuild of 2 loops as I won't be changing much for a while after that.
They certainly restrict flow a little, but I was really suprised how much flow I picked up changing CPU blocks. The Apogee GTX is a really high restriction block compared to the Koolance 370, i can't measure it, but the flow meter in the res is turning noticeably faster and thats with an extra Rad in the loop too. Maybe 50% better flow with the new block.
This has dropped water idle temps by 1.5c to almost ambient temp now, and CPU load temps by 5-6c in a couple of quick tests i did last night.
CPU was idling 2-3c lower at between 38-41c per core and peaking at 81c compared to previous 88c but thats with 2c lower ambient than when I ran my last testing.
Im just about to test video card load temps with Kombustor to see how the increased flow has impacted temps there too.
