I might do that on both my blocks, I have four quick disconnects for my two video cards and they already decrease the flow some.

But for the ease of assembling/disassembling my PC, it's worth it.

I'm getting the acetal/nickel one. and with the Pheonix MLC QDC's GPU Module it's really cheap, waterblock and backplate, 121.98 USD on sale.

EVGA 1080 Ti SC Black Edition for SLI.

It's a reference design card so I can throw an EKWB waterblock and backplate on it!!

Hopefully I win this used dual d5 kit, it'll give me a perfect reason to split my loop. Then both can run @ idle & still achieve 1gpm.


Jura,

how're your pumps setup? 2x in a top and a 3rd else where? If so, have you ever tried testing without the 3rd pump? or maybe you're using XSPC's scary triple top with success.. unlike many before you we have similar systems (minus a fast DDC) & I've always been able to achieve ~120 LPH, even when I had CPU, 2x GPU, south bridge, and mosfets blocked (x79) The other thing I've noticed is that DDC's HATE having 90s within the first few inches from the pump. I'd assume D5s exhibit similar issues.
Hi there

Yes my 2*DDC pumps are in Aquacomputer DDC dual pump top, its very nice made pump top and flow seems is better than with normal pump tops, tried few pump tops like EK or Barrow or Bykski ones

Previously I have run EK 3.2 PWM Elite edition with Barrow DDC 18W pump and my flow have been similar or exactly same, as you I used 90° fittings for that and yes I can confirm 90° fittings can restrict flow if you are using them on inlet or outlet of pump

XSPC D5 Vario pump is mounted with Monsoon MMRS reservoir and dual DDC pumps are in pedestal and no issues with noise, I tried previously to run only XSPC D5 Vario with single EK DDC 3.2 PWM Elite edition and no issues but after adding MO-ra3 360mm radiator and 4th GPU my flow dropped and I needed to get another pump

In Enthoo Primo where I run EK XE360 radiator on top, Mayhems Havoc 240mm 60mm thick radiator on bottom with 3*GPUs setup and CPU and in this setup I have used or run EK 3.2 PWM Elite edition and my flow have been in 240-265LPH

Hope this helps

Thanks, Jura

Here's a little video overview of my system from the last rebuild when I made the big 4-rad loop back in december 2018:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWrYGUoIdco

Don't expect youtube video quality. I'm a noob at video and used my 2013 phone for this.

This is my big beast with the 1080 Ti and the 32-phase-vrm motherboard and everything. This is not your fancy schamancy gold chrome bling bling type of water cooling build. This is "maximum overclocking performance and nothing else matters" type of build. It runs a 3570K @ 5.0 Ghz daily-driver currently, and a 32GB set of Corsair Vengance DDR3-2800-CL12 ram @ 2500 Mhz currently. If I can ever manage to get this credit card paid off I want to put a second CLC 1080 Ti and a 3770K in it and (in this special board) most likely try to run 5.5 - 5.7 ghz daily-driver with that. And try to get the ram up to 3000 Mhz CL-14 probably. Also if you wonder why I have an old creative X-Fi card and a GTX 780 in it: This system also Dual-boots XP-32 along with Win7-x64 and doubles as my retro gaming rig too.

that's a good question.. it gets crazy man. Moving these things is a major pain in the ass. I forgot to get it in my u-hual last time, so the STH10 ended up in the trunk of my civic. When all said & done it looked like big momma was hiding in the back of my car.

it adds up quick. BP fittings are heavy as hell, specially the 1/2 rotary soft tube compression. Fat boy radiators are heavy as hell. dozens of fans, heavy as hell. None of its light XD
idk about hard tube fittings, but soft tube 1/2 3/4 fittings are heavy as hell. The tiny little rubbermade thing I use to store my old fittings weighs like 10lb.

in fact, at least with giant cases, I wouldn't go hard line if you change parts often, or see yourself moving in the near future. Small hard line cases can be easily packed like precious goods, but systems of this magnitude would need to be packaged like a piano for proper transport. (wrapped in moving blankets, with a wood frame built around it, then boxed in with plywood)
Hi there

Personally I'm running 3 pump setup(XSPC D5 Vario with dual Laing DDC 18w) for 4*360mm radiators plus MO-ra3 360mm setup and with that setup I'm getting 135-140LPH currently and that's with 4*GPUs setup and Aquacomputer Kryos NEXT Vision CPU waterblock

MCP50X this pump I considered too but couldn't find over here in UK, with these dual pumps my flow would be better

Regarding the D5 pump, I tried to run dual D5 pumps and with this setup my flow hasn't been better than with current setup and my DDC pumps are mainly quiet at full speed which I run all my pumps at full speed

If yours loop is larger then running multiple pumps would help

STH10 or TH10 this case I wanted to get as well but couldn't find it used and my current Caselabs M8 with pedestal its great case too but Phanteks Enthoo Primo is still my favourite case and used can be found for reasonable price

I usually clean all my loop every few weeks and taking apart case is pain and picking up the case with all HDD etc I just couldn't pick up

Hope this helps

Thanks, Jura
