Serial vs Loop Pumps

I bought some water cooling parts to build my custom wc. I have a CPU block, 1 GPU block, 2 radiatos with 240mm, 2 reservoir and 2 pumps with 600l/h. What is the best way to put these two pumps? Parallel or series? I intent to buy a ram block in the future. Im'm new to this custom world. Thanks

  1. You don't want or really need a RAM block.

    Why do you have 2 reservoirs? Are you planning to run 1 loop or 2? Do you have links to these components?

  2. 2 reservoir just for aesthetics and i will buy a ram block in the future...
    I'm planing 1 loop but if 2 loops is better i can use it.

    I have
    2 50cm diameter cilinder
    2 sc600 pump 600l/h
    1 gpu block bykski for gtx 980ti
    1 cpu block bykski
    2 copper radiator 240cm
    3 meters of hard tubbing
    18 bykski fittings

    can i post the links?

  3. You can post links - you need to use and then a close tag for each link, meaning the close link would be in brackets and look like /url.

    You would only likely need 1 loop - pretty basic setup.

    Radiator
    Tube
    GPU Block
    CPU Block
    Pumps

    I'm planing to do something like this

  5. That's a lot of tubing and a lot of bends, which adds restriction. That's also a no-name pump - it says to have decent head, but seems like a cheap pump when you're considering watercooling a Titan or 980.

    That certainly is a budget watercooling loop build, though. Good luck and I hope those components are built well...I always have concerns when I see people cutting corners on cheap watercooling gear. Hopefully they are engineered well and meet expectations.

    i know that, i'll use these 2 pumps in series, maybe buy another one and about july i will buy 2 d5 pumps and a ram block to update the system... thanks

  7. Still, you don't need the RAM block, it won't serve any purpose in actually cooling anything.
