    It doesn't really matter. Try to go for the shortest tubing routes and make sure its pump and reservoir are one after another. Main reason I like bay pump and reservoirs combos its just one less route to worry about, and the reservoir can act as a low end performance top.

    Pump is too weak to be going through a cpu, gpu and an extra radiator.

    Yeah if he is using the pump that comes with the kit, those pumps are absolutely worthless.

    Not really, they just can't be overloaded with stuff. Mine is going through a GPU block and a 360 rad. My load temps are in the mid to high 30's

    I thought you were running MCP355 in both your loops

    I'm willing to bet your that you'll see instant results.

    soon find out tomorro when it comes lol although i called xspc in case i had a faulty pump and they claim that the 750 should cool a cpu and xfire gpu easily

    If a new pump does not solve it drastically, then there is likely something wrong with the setup. I just hope for your time's sake, the pump is faulty.

    i def dont think the pump is faulty as it squirts water a good 6-8 ft easily across the room when im testing in sink my loop now goes

    pump/res>cpu>120mm rad>gpu>240mm rad>pump/res. although since ive changed loop again the temps have now hit 80c on unigine benchmark within about 3 mins on the gpu and cpu hits 62 within 60 secs of prime95

    What are you using to measure the temps? Are you looking at Core Temp or processor Temp?
    Check your idle temps in BIOS. Also, how warm is the air that is blow out of the top of your case? Does it feel luke warm to your hand? Also check how hot your radiators feel.

    i use hwinfo, also i did notice when running a game for say an hour if i put my finger in the res the temp is a geed 20c above room temp if thats any use.

    the 240 rad after the gpu gets really warm to touch along with the tube coming from the gpu to the rad. i hope that makes sense. however the 120mm after the cpu never really gets warm or expells warm air whereas the 240mm rad does expell warm but not hot air

    Sounds to me like the heat is not dissipating properly then. If the tubes and res and radiators are hot, then the heat is being transferred from the components, but simply isnt being expelled from the radiators by the fans in pull config. I strongly recommend attempting to add push fans wherever possible.
    What liquid are you using?

    push fans aint possible at all due to lack of space, im using distiled water and coolaboratry coolant then i used distilled wate and anti freezw which seemed to perform better.

    also the 240 rad does get extremely warm and very warm air being expelled. also as a side note xspc informed me that apart from possibly 0.8c there is no dif between a push or pull config

    Fresh out of ideas, nothing else i can think of unless there's something that's been missed.

    Sorry we couldn't get the problem resolved for you. Hope the pump and red solve things for you

    right waiting for my new pump/res to be delivered what would be the best way to route this?? one xspc in following order

    pump/rad?cpu>120 rad>pump

    followed by

    pump/res>gpu>240 rad>pump

    or is there a beyyer way to route the 2 pumps

    Run it this way.

    pump/res > 240 > CPU > 120 > GPU > pump/res

    Also if you got a good enough pump, you shouldn't need 2, unless you are going to run two separate loops.

    That seems perfectly legit to me, I'd always put the rad after the component.

    cheers mate i presume thexspc 750 pump combo on its own should be enough to cool a 7970 also with a dual set up should be easier i presume to bleed each system of air

    Yeah, ofcourse a seperate loop should greatly improve temps, but a single pump should have been enough for each component individually, especially at stock.

    both pumps now installed, 1 for cpu and 1 for gpu. temps now idling 48c for cpu, 38 gpu. loads are cpu 69 ( stopped stressing) and 67 for gpu which i know are way too high.

    both are seated correctly and the air has def been bled from the system so no air locks etc etc. beginning to wonder if ive just chucked Ā£400 down the pan and should have stuck to air cooling
