Single or Dual pumps?

Ok so here's what I'm getting ready to build.


AMD 3950x
Nvidia 1080ti (for now) until the next Nvidia card drops.


Optimus Foundation AMD Block
Phanteks 1080 TI Water block (if I can find one)
2 x 480 HWL TS
1 x 360 HWL GTS
1 x 360 HWL L series
Singularity Res (200mm)
Aquacomputer D5 pump.
13mm Alpha Cool brass pipes/fittings.

Aquacomputer 6 to run everything.


My question is, if I can cram all 4 of these rads into a Phateks 719 case, should I consider a second pump to ease the load? This will be a serial pipe run. I've been reading that HWL rads are a bit more restrictive as is the Optimus Foundation block.

Point 2, IF a second pump is a good idea, what's the best piping config for this? Out pump 1, into pump 2 which obviously goes out pump 2? Should I get a 2nd reservoir or can I get by with one since space will become a factor?






**EDIT**


After consideration I think I'll stick with a 3 rad setup for now. 1 480, 2 360. Top, front, bottom. The tolerance for all 4 rad spots seem excessively difficult to work with.

Add a flow meter and temp sensor for the water as well.
For dual pumps you can either buy one that’s dual already, buy a new top for both or run them each separate. More run them in serial, one pump feeding the other as it creates more head, or you can run them in parallel and get double the flow

Dual pump if you have the money. If not, single pump will work.

Dual pump is mostly good for redundancy; not a ton of performance to be gained but there is some if your budget allows.

I already have a flow sensor but I can't believe I forgot the temp sensor. I must have thought the flow sensor from Aquacomputer would do it. Oh well, back to PPCS/Amazon. Side note, where should I put the sensor that makes the most sense in the loops?

Doesn't matter where the temperature sensor is- make it convenient to you. The water in the loop will stabilize at whatever temperature as it runs around the loop- there will never be any significant delta in the water temperature as it flows, as long as you have enough flow to run the loop (and unless you have a ton of blocks any decent pump is enough).

2 - 480 and 2 - 360 radiators for a single cpu / gpu build. Makes 0 sense.

Ehh, in general watercooling makes 0 sense. But we do it anyway

A 3950x already runs hot and we don't know how hot the next Nvidia card will be. Plus I've repeatedly read more rad area means more cooling potential means fans running lower RPM.
