You shouldn't need dual pumps for that small of a loop. A single 120mm+220mm would be enough.
Yeah, dual pumps is an insane recommendation.
Looks like you are on the right track, spring
so use the smaller 120m to the res? this is the rad
I thought I was going custom lol.
I'm lost...could you please explain?
To all here's my layout.
Man I thought I would stop at the original setup I had...but the itch...it got me so to speak.
You don't need dual pumps, the setup you have is fine take the loop and go 240mm->pump->res->GPU->120mm that should give the best CPU temps and decent GPU temps.
I am not using 2 pumps, my 120 rad is thick too...about 63 mm or almost 2.25 inches
That will only help if you run a high static pressure fan (like a 32mm rediculous one). Just run a swifty 120mm extreme smaller lower FPI and better for a smaller quieter loop.
I was told to run the thicker rad to the pump
You'll be fine where ever you decide to put it. Best turn it off and get to rebuilding!
I am on my laptop...with the way i use to build pc's you would think I am a reviewer cause there's at least 8 computers in my household.
Only with high static pressure fans. Most of those thick rads perform worse than a standard ran with a normal fan
i'd do res>pump>120>gpu>240>res
i would keep your original case setup and add 120 with fans as back exhaust and res in 5.25 drive bays.
when you fill in coolant put res above all other parts and start pump. also turn top radiator upside down so that fittings are at the top while filling in. put 120 rad with fittings at the top as well.
this will minimize chance to get air in loop
Do I fill the res to the very top?
1 CM from the top. Start the pump witha paperclip rig, wait for the loop to fill, then refill the res until 1cm from top again.
I've been running the pump off and on and moving about the rads, and gpu to circulate the flow of the coolant and trying my best to get rid of the remnants of air bubbles. I have not seen any more air bubble over the last minute or so.
Rads are wonderful things!
then it is time for testing
and results are? ....
I have to move it from my phenom system to the haswell, I hate this process, my jumping of the psu does not work so I test it on my old set up.
temps are off on the gpu side of things
didnt got this
you mean gpu temps dropped or cpu dropped but gpu went higher?
what happened with 4770. its temps was the problem at the beginning
cpu dropped and gpu increased...massively...yea the temps on that was the issue first
what are parameter of the fan at 120 rad (cfm and mmh20)
add 2nd fan on 120?
or try switch rads.
The way you have the tubing connected to the card, are you sure the liquid isn't just passing right through?
I agree. looks like its in and out without going through it... usually in is on one side, and out is on the other.
i didnt noticed
check your gpu connection before
and new photos few post above
