So I have a hard time believing that parallel on 4 MCW82 blocks would be the best idea. Anyone actually running a quad SLI setup that has any input?? I'm thinking of running the top two cards in Parallel, then serial into the bottom two cards (also parallel). Picture is below. On the left would be the full parallel setup and on the right shows my idea. Input would be saweet

Thanks,

So I should go with the parallel+serial setup (that what the 2x1 parallel means lol)? And more information I probably should have provided to start is listed below:

SR-2 Motherboard block/VREG block
Dual Raystorm CPU blocks
Dual MC35x pumps in serial

If two 35x pumps in serial dont do it then I suppose I'll have to add a third (probably dual loops at that point

I would recommend over-sizing your radiator capacity if you intend to run higher voltage settings as upwards of 50watts of pump heat can really make diminishing returns on flow apparent sooner than you'd think
She's a wicked beasty alright.

Iwaki RD-30s... buy one, use it forever.... these things are BEASTLY! although feeding them 24V can get costly... I use 18v.
Holy crap batman lol.... I'm hoping I won't need that but you never know I suppose. Thanks for the post though and if i did need it I would have to put that on the external radiator because I wouldn't want it anywhere near me lol

Your 2x 35x pumps should be more than enough. I use 2x 350 with a XSPC dual pump top and a 350 with a XSPC pump top and my flow is great.

Loop is, Res > Dual Pumps > 4x MCW60 > 140 > CPU > 360 > 480 > 120 > back to res.

But either way will work fine.
My loop (full parallel):
Out of curiosity what is the delta across all three of your 580's in parallel?
