Dual or Single Loop? - Page 2

post #11 of 16

Yeah ...heat dump will be eliminated and at the same time the massive cooling space is able to cool the water down too.

A single loop would negate that effect.

Your Temps all around will be better with 1 loop more rad area to dissipate each unit of heat from the water in your loop.

The only way I can see a dual loop working well is if you use 2 pumps, basically parralel circuits (possibly even 2 radiators). If you just have it split and go to the different blocks there will be differing restriction between the blocks and different temperature changes which would cause the flow to be less to the more restrictive and/or hotter block.
This would of course be bad for cooling.

I think single loop is the way to go for cost and simplicity, over what would essentially be 2 whole water cooling systems crammed into a case.

Considering that I have the Extended Ascension not going dual loop might seem stupid to some^^.

But I think all of you are right
The space is used for a rad like the 1080.
Thank you all for your answers

I just had a really great idea that would enable me to provide the CPU and GPU´s with the full cooling ability of both the 1080 and 360 rad and could still seperate the heat dump.

My 360 rad (Phobya G Changer 1.2) has 4 inlet/outlet ports.
I thought if I aligned the loop like this:


Res ->pump->1080 rad->360rad ->
....one outlet for the GPU->Res
.....one outlet for the CPU->Res

For better understanding:The water from the cpu res will go through the pump first through the 1080 and then the 360 rad...because the 360 rad has 4 ports that hopefully can be used as outlets and inlets ...I will let on outlet go through the CPU block and the other outlet through the GPU blocks....and both will exhaust into the Res.This way the heat dump of either will not affect each other and both can benefit from the full potential of the 1080 + 360 rad.
I think this kind of setup should beat the temps a single loop with this config(res->pump->360->cpu->1080->gpu->res) would deilver right?


Only thing I am not sure about ..if it is even possible to have 2 outlets and 1 inlet on that radiator hope you can advise^^.

Cool idea though right?
