hi guyz!
i would like to ask you again about water cooling,
my rig is composed of
i7 920 oc 4.0ghz ht on
xfx 5870 with ek waterblock
gigabyte x58a ud7
6gb corsair dominator

my watercooling set up
swiftech mcp355 pump
ek top reservoir for laing/swiftech pumps
ybris black sun pvd cpu block ( made in italy)
ek 360 rad with 5 fans fitted!!
gigabyte nb block
3/8 tubing

temps in full load
cpu at 4.0ghz ht on 64-62-62-59
gpu oc to 1075/1300 47c vrm's temps 67c

water flow
res-pump-rad-cpu-nb-gpu-res

my plan is to ad a 240 rad on the loop
the xspc rx240 is my choice

my question is
should the pump have a sufficient preasure to pushwater on my set up!?

i was planning to hsve this water flow
res-pump-360rad-240rad-cpu-nb-gpu-res
or
res-pump-360rad-cpu-240rad-nb-gpu-res


the plan 1 can help the gravity to the pump
while the 2nd can make my pump work hard to push water!

any advices!??

should my pump sufficient for my set up!??

thanks guyz

Ummm...... absolutely not. Do: res>pump>CPU>rad>GPU>rad>res. Or do 2 separate loops which would be the best option.

I have NO IDEA WTF that is. Link?

A MCP355 with a top will work fine for a not highly restrictive loop. 3/8" OD or ID?

3/8 od mate!

this is the link of my cpu block!

so my pump works for with this loop?

1. 3/8" OD is too small. Get 3/8" ID at least.

2. There is a HK 3.0 LC for ~1/2 the price of that Yabris block. Considering the HK 3.0 LC places well against the GTZ I'd get that block instead of the Yabris.

3. Read this: http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=628...

4. Yes, the MCP 355 should be fine.

ohhh holly crap! i have that tubing
3/0 ID 1/2 OD tygon tube

so what is the best water flow for this!?

this

res-pump-240rad-360rad-cpu-nb-gpu
or
res-pump-360rad-cpu-240rad-nb-gpu


the first 1 have more cooling time i guess


thanks though

Do:

res>pump>CPU>240 rad>GPU>360 rad>res.

Imo, don't bother with NB cooling. An AntecSpot cool,etc or just a 80mm fan should take care of the NB heat.

i made a schetch exactly what u said bro!!


res pump cpu 240rad gpu 360rad!!

thanks man!! ordering now

In my experience, the order of the loop doesn't matter at all.

Water can pass through a rad with minimal temperature drop and pass through a block with minimal temp gain because water is moving so fast. I am not sure about a restrictive loop though but if water is moving fast enough. You won't need to worry order.

I tried organising my loop which uses a MCP 655 w/ EK top and it doesn't make any difference between may parts which include vid card, CPU, NB, and dual thickness rad. Temperatures seem more or less the same despite the configuration. The largest change I seen was 1C difference. I would work towards a less restrictive loop.

well, i just make a try with what i plannd!

then if there no gain on temps, i'll go on dual loop!
