Well now I have a design and layout I drew up after researching a ton and picking items.
I have been told to stay away from Y splitters and I understand why but...
What I cannot find info on and know many people dont like to use them because they believe its pointless is, how do I put RAM in a loop?
With their high resistence of liquid bypass, wont it cause the CPU to heat up being there is not as much flow to them?
Can you place a splitter/Y before RAM/CPU then reconnect it after without issues?
Many people ask why do I want to do this. My answer to them is I have them money, want the look, and dont care about overclocking(Was a past hobby and came to realize that 1 to 2 fps isnt worth the short lifespan hassle).
Any thoughts or advice is much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
cos series is a no brainer/mess for flow will be same on all blocks with weakest block of loop set the flow
with using a Y combined with ram cpu
cpu more restrictive then ram for flow will take the leasest route (ram)
mock up (outside of case) the loop and calibrate after the Y and match flow by restricting the ram flow
thats how to set up a parelle
Y useage best used on dual GPU WB's in series loop
(note after -< branch keep tube lenght same >-)
