flow direction and order for new loop

I'm going to be doing a custom loop with ebay/knockoff parts. I have done loops before but I have not done a "budget loop" before. Id like some input as to what direction I should run everything and if my pump will be fine for all my items in the loop.


Here is the pump: https://www.ebay.com/itm/G1-4-110mm-...53.m2749.l2649


This will be powering the loop through (not in order) CPU block, GPU block, mobo southbridge block, mobo chipset block, and two rads (120 and 240).



Here is a picture of my case with all the components but no res/pump. How would you draw the lines for tubing? I'm using soft tubing and the top 240mm rad can be run in either direction and the pump/res can be mounted where you like.



Thanks for the help!


EDIT: Here are the other components in the loop:


some fittings: https://www.ebay.com/itm/XSPC-G1-4-t...53.m2749.l2649
CPU block: https://www.ebay.com/itm/CPU-Water-C...53.m2749.l2648
GPU block: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Dual-waterw...53.m2749.l2648
chipset block: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Acrylic-Tra...53.m2749.l2649
Southbridge block: https://www.ebay.com/itm/North-South...53.m2749.l2649


also have heatsinks for the GPU memory and VRMs


The build is an EVGA x58 Classified 3, 4.2ghz (hoping to go higher) i7 950, gtx 1060, 8gb ddr3, and some HDDs and SSDs.

Loop order doesn't matter, just make it look pretty or uses the least amount of tubing. The water temp will equalize after some time has passed.

Yeah my plan is to use as little tubing as possible for a cleaner look. I also have some left over 90s and 45s so hopefully that will help too. My main concern is if my pump will be powerful enough to run the loop through all these blocks.

Hi,
Put the gpu then cpu block first in line from the pump and it should be just fine
Add a inline filter to the first block inlet and it won't get blocked with crap.

Was thinking about this butdon't know if the pump/res will fit there or not.

Unless you're using HDDs, that bracket looks like a good location for the pump and res. The only thing you need to ensure is that the pump is fed directly from the res and below it. Other than that, loop order doesn't matter -- what you are showing looks ok, assumin the port locations cooperate. As for filters, their main effect seems to be to restrict flow, I would advise to clean your rads thoroughly before installing and keep the filter away from the loop.

I'd do parallel loop through 2 radiators and NB SB. Theoretically parallel reduce head pressure loss.
Pump out to GPU
GPU outlet split to rad 1 rad 2 then gathers into CPU inlet (this would be equivalent of large single radiator)
CPU outlet split to NB & SB, pump can have 2 inlets for return line from NB and SB (this would be equivalent of single NB SB block)

Might be worth if you're worried about single pump head pressure loss, might not be worth extra fittings & tube if it works serial just fine.

Hi,
I'd image the size of the gpu would depend on if the pump/ res comb would fit
This is the filter I picked up it is not bad on flow

if you ever find that the screen in that filter is to small I use screens from my local pipe shop. they are in between the sizes that koolance provides with the filters.
