I'm a newbie to the forum, but not the hobby. I won't go in and bore you all with my old PC modding days way back when. However, I am in a bit of a dilemma on which direction to go with my new water cooling setup.
Processor: Intel i7 4790K
<br>Motherboard: Asus Z97 Deluxe
Memory: I haven't decided yet
Video Card: Asus Radeon R9 295/X2
PSU: EVGA SuperNova 1200 P2
Case: Nanoxia Deep Silent 6
Any who I have been debating between single vs dual loop. Now, the only reason why is I plan on Water Cooling the follow: CPU, GPU's, North & South Bridge & Memory is a possibility but leaning more and more against it.<br><br>My parts list for the project:
Koolance QDC or Lok-Seal Kit
KOMODO R9 LE - For GPU's
MCRx20-XP - Triple Fan - I would like a Quad Rad, but not sure if my case has the space.
Koolance 380 Water Block
Reading Pro's & con's on the Res w/ built in pump or get it with an additional pump in parallel
So now I have presented everyone with information on to the fun stuff the design. Now, I have a few drawings I just haven't scanned them to the PC to post so I will try and explain. I like to take a methodical approach to most things I do. I have two spots in my case where I could potentially place my Rad(At top like most do or on bottom).
So the reason for my dual loop design was of the few things I wanted to cool. I just figured with the Video Cards being so huge, they could be on their own loop. Which I know could be a disadvantage within itself especially if I under power it. Now I could do a separate Rad for the Video Cards since I have the room, but I need to make sure that I have enough fans to move the heat generating from two Rad's out of the Case efficiently. I was thinking I could do the possibly push/pull effect if I went with a two Rad setup but again I'm not an expert just thinking it out logically.
So if I potentially did a two rad setup, would you guys advise that I have at least two pumps and one Res? So I could get the Maelstream V2 Res/Pump for CPU, NB & SB, then get a separate pump for the GPU's?
So after typing this and working at the same time it seems like a single loop would do the trick and keep life simple for me. So my question next is with the water cooling parts listed above do you think I would be very effective keeping all the parts nice and cool do should I add something else for piece of mind.<br><br>Thank you all in advance for the assistance.
PS. I know nothing really has changed from a lot of the NB & SB so could MC30 or is there a site or vendor that may specialize in ASUS chipsets?<br><br><br>
