CPU or MB block first? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Because we don't know how hot your temps get?? And you run res.>pump>rad.>CPU or MB doesn't matter because it will return to the res. and go back through the rad. to cool off and repeat the loop again... it will get warmer with both in the loop opposed to just the CPU..

Unless you mean running res>pump>rad>cpu>res>rad>mb>res>rad...using y adapters and other fittings, but then eventually your radiator is going to reach a point where it can only dissipate heat from both cpu and mb at the similar temps anyway...soo...

unless you run multiple radiators and possibly pumps, then things still won't matter because of above ^^^the temps will just be cooler, but equilibrium still plays fact in how the temps level off and it doesn't matter.


I think...

Lol think about it, unless you have an extremely overkill WC setup its unlikely you'll be able to get rid of ALL of the heat produced in between blocks. Reservoirs do hardly anything to let the loop cool. The radiators do all of the work pretty much. But the only way the heat would not be transferred from one to the other sooner or later is if you could take out all of the heat produced by each component after each section which is almost impossible with watercooling. Sooner or later your wc system is going to be able to dissipate as much heat as is going to be created hence the equilibrium but this does not occur for awhile. And the temperature in the water will roughly be the same all around which is why it does not matter. The leftover heat still goes from one component to another. Cpu-->mb/mb--->cpu/cpu--->mb--->cpu. Unless your rads take out all of the heat, thats what the leftover heat is going to look like. Of course your cpu will be cooler at first because it gets the water that just came out of the rad but after 5-10 minutes you won't notice a difference.
