Worth changing the loop order?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Just changed the fluid in my loop after having some temp problems (see this thread.

Now im maxing around 62C , average 58-60C. I first wanted to have the cpu before the NB, but after having a small leak i had to tighted some fittings. I had a bit of a hurry connecting everything up so did not notice that i put the NB before the CPU.

How many W does the NB on a MIIF produce and is it worth draining the loop to change the order so that the CPU comes before the NB (How much can i expect to gain from this)

The mobo isn't going to be putting out much heat at all, I'd say you gain maybe 1-2C, not worth it to me, especially if the routing looks good as it is now.

This is what Feser UV Clear-Blue dye did to my GTZ... Never running anything other than distilled + PT ever again.

Thats close to what i saw. The routing looks good as it is.

When it comes to future upgrade i will add WC to my GTX 570, will the 360mm rad (Swiftech MCR320Q) be enought. i Could add a 240mm rad behind the hdd cage on my ATCS 840, but that would be all internal so the heat from the rad would be dumped inside the case. What do you guys think?

I ran my C2Q, board and SLI 8800GTS 512's on an MCR320 and an MCR120; I've since rebuilt my loop, but yes- single 360 will work fine. If you SLI the 570 you might want to think about adding another rad, but right now you're fine. The Swiftech gets knocked alot because it's thin, but it's a really strong performer.

Once your loop hits equilibrium, the inlet and outlet temps of each waterblock is always less than 2 degrees, and in some cases less than 1 degree, depending on your flowrate..

So it makes almost no difference at all which order you put your blocks in..

So you can expect to drop no more than 1C on your CPU by reordering your loop. IMO, not worth the trouble especially since it won't actually improve cooling as your NB will be running 1C hotter. So all that work to transfer 1C of heat from the CPU to the NB, it's up to you.
