Multiple Card Question: Series or Parallel Flow?
Well, I'm starting to narrow my decision on an upgrade for my graphics card down to two NVidia RTX2080ti FE cards. They're the most affordable from NVidia, from what I've seen. (I'm hoping they aren't somehow limited in function compared to third party cards made by others? Comments?) And I'll connect them to my EKWB CE 3x 140mm fan radiator system. According to the EKWB configuration tool, it's a good match for my system as was originally planned and built. (Couldn't have anticipated the RTX cards back then!) But, I don't know if it's better to use Parallel or Series waterflow for the cards. I know that if the header is large enough, water will flow equally into both cards. BUT, part of my brain thinks about the discharge ports on the cards and can't help but wonder how EVENLY the water will flow through each card, given the small header size at the entrance and exit to the ports on the waterblocks.
I'm running the D5 pump/reservoir.
So, which would be better? Parallel or Series?
