Ok little tip when you are trying to sound serious donÂ´t say "something like that"xD
But seriously ....just try to picture it.
You have a 1080 rad (3x360) with imense cooling abliity and a 360 rad.
1.)Now if I were to use them in a full loop with the Kryos XT as CPU block restriction would be very high and I would not be able to keep the flow over 1 GPM.
Also keep in mind that the water that travels through the blocks doesnÂ´t keep its tempreture
As it gets hotter the following radiator not only has to dissipate the heat that has been absorbed from the block it also has to disolve the heat that was added by the blocks=>heat dump.
And that lower flowrate in addition to the heat dump will give me bad temps.
2.)Two single loops with two pumps and resevoirs all seperated would be the best option here. Because the Kryso would have its own loop and the restriction could not affect any other block. Same thing with the GPUÂ´s .
Problem here is that I would not be able to use the full potential of both my radiators on both of my blocks because I would have to choose which loop gets what.
Also the additional costs of a new pump,res ,tubing,fittings, doesnÂ´t seem to pretty to me
Now imagine my idea.
You have the water going from the res throug the pump then first hitting the 1080 rad and after that the 360 so the water can be split and still have the cooling ability of both the rads in it.
Now because the 360 rad has 2 inlet and 2 outlet ports I can just use one outlet that leads to the CPU block the Kryos and another outlet that leads to the GPU block.
Both blocks will be supplied with extremely cool water , both will not be affected by each others heat dumps ...and after the water has traveled through the blocks individually ...they both exhaust into the res again.
It is the concept of a T-Line with the exeption and the advantage that it is not a T-LinexD
I do not see how there is more restriction?
It just needs more water that is all.....It would not require more tubing than a single loop would.
And it should even provide higher flow to both loops than a single loop could give.
I have a MCP655 ..on setting 5 the Kryos XT loop should have a higher flowrate than 1.25GPM and the GPU loop either.
At least better than a single loop but certainly not better than an actual dual loop that is agreed upon.
It is only visually a split.For the pump itself it should not matter if a radiator has 1 or 2 outlets.
This setup would not require more tubing so in my oppinion it is a *bent* single loop with all the advantages of a single and dual loop and none of the disadvantages.
So I have featured all the thoughts on my theory^^
