I just finished my second loop, but this time I wanted to change the route of my tubes, but I got really high temperature idle (50/60) instead of 30 in my first loop.
I use 2x360mm radiator, and push configuration on em.
I think my order is bad, but I just want a confirmation before I do it again.
PUMP > Radiator > GPU > CPU > radiator.
I think I should : PUMP > CPU > radiator > GPU > radiator
if you think the order doesn't change anything then I think it's cause of my pump, the outlet is doing an "S" maybe it should be straight to have a better flow ?
Thank you guys
I presume your reservoir is before and above the pump... so (Res) > PUMP > CPU > radiator > GPU > radiator is what I usually use with good temps. Also check if ALL the air is out (especially in GPU crevasses) as that can easily affect temps. Finally, if you have a second pump available, I would mount that between 1st rad and GPU.
Well actually I think I know why if anything seems normal, I actually inverted the in and out on the radiator above, I mean I know there is now inlet and outlet, but see the picture, to have a better look I inverted it so it's probably ******** ?
which ports you use on a raidator doesn't really matter, unless its x-flow style.
the only * I can think of with that, is that any horizontally mounted radiators would benefit from water being delivered to the top port, as the radiator would be easier to fill/bleed. gravity is your friend.
R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
What else was changed when you rerouted the tubing? Order is meaningless, the water temps will even out in the end no matter the order.
Look at what else was changed. Did you remount the CPU block, could be that. Most radiators shouldn't have in/out ports, it shouldn't matter. The CPU block does though, maybe that's backwards. I'd check for a bad CPU mount or a switch of the CPU block ports. How many 90 degree bends are new?
