How will I know if my pump can't handle the added restriction?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I'm about to buy another waterblock for my second gtx 470 - I'm going to get another DD block because the last review I saw showed they added the least amount of restriction to the loop. I'm still using the pump that came with my RS240 Rasa kit, which is why I'm asking

The other question I had was how big does my second rad need to be, SB chips don't really run that hot, but I think the 470s are going to be overvolted and running around 900 core if at all possible.

I noticed the difference in price between a low end 240 rad and a 360 rad isn't that great, is a 360 (like a Black Ice Xtreme III) + the rs240 enough for my setup?

yup, two fc links, one for each card..

and about the bridge, are you on pcie slot 1 and 2 on your board or 1 and 3? I made the stupid mistake of ordering a dual bridge instead of a triple for my setup lol...

Should be fine. I think it was wermad who was running the pump through a few blocks and whatnot.

Anyways, it's not like you bench under normal conditions haha

I actually think that your definitely gonna get a performance hit with that pump...

How big of one?

Also I'm trying to be as cheap as possible here, not looking for top of the spectrum performance just better than air and less noise than stock 400 series fermi cooling.

If its really bad I can get a different pump as I already have a t-line built into the current system for that very purpose (so I don't have to get a res too).

The EK item is a bit too expensive for me, its $52 total

I drew up a diagram so I could avoid costly SLI adapters and angled barbs, will this work? How bad are we talking on the performance hit, 5-10C, or more?



Honestly even if I take a large performance hit at first at least I can dispel all this heat, having everything overclocked and overvolted is terrible when its not winter

I think the issue is you won't be able to tell until you buy it all, set it up, and then test for temps. Your pump may also be running warmer than previously to touch. I would just go for cheaper SLI fittings and buy the block and give it a shot. You said yourself you don't want it to be a uber performance setup and I think it would more than suffice. It's not like you're adding a chipset block restriction wise
