Default My loop design

Looks like my post in some ones other thread was deleted : (

So here is my question.
I will have two ATI 5970 in cross fire and 16GB of G.SKILL Ripjaws (4 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 on a MSI 790FX-GD70.
The vid cards will have EK-FC 5970 Nickel blocks and EK-FC5970 RAM Nickel Backplates.

I am going to overclock the the ram and was thinking about using Koolance Ram-33.
I have not seen any real good reviews on ram temps.
So do you think water cooling the ram is over kill and one of those clip on fan thingys would do the trick ?

I made two pics of the loops in photoshop.
Most of the parts are to size - its just hard to find pics at the right angles to use.
The water lines are just there for reference.
Can you guess whats cooling the CPU

I will find funny if you want to go on phase or what ever, and you motherboard chipset are not cooled, especially that you use WC for the ram . and I see no need for phase cooling or what ever , with an AMD cpu, if you want go extreme, go with the new i3 , or i6 Intel CPU , they have better OC

also your Y , or splitter on the loop of the second pics, is a very bad idea.

Current AMD CPU's clock very well under extreme cooling.

I also don't need watercooling the northbridge is ever needed besides for looks. I had my 920 @ 4.8GHz, and still used stock passive NB cooling.

Watercooling ram is also pointless besides looks. I run 6 sticks completely passive w/ no air flow over them w/ no issues.

icic
Then for the single loop T-line would a 4-way splitter be a handy thing? (Its weird that most koolance parts on Dazmode are twice the price)
I was thinking of using the straight through from the card to the pump and the bottom plug as a drain and the top port to go to the fill port.

And yes that is a phase change cooler ; )

parrelle loop not good for novice

loose the koolance 3-ways, specialy on pump inlet. try some real manifolds PL154306BV on pressure side/suction side PL154306 so you can adjust your parrelle loop

best go serial loop for beginner

rez>pump>cpu>rad>gpu>gpu>rad>memory

They were koolance 5-way btw
This guy looks ok for a 3-way

But most people I have talked to have noted that ram water blocks are not need, so there out.
KaptCrunch thats to big : p

MarkOne I have looked for water blocks for this motherboard and have found none.
But with the lack of air flow from the CPU fan (bc of the phase change) I am putting a tiny 40mm fan on the northbridge : P

Expansion of coolant you say.
What about using a Pressure Valve in my fill port ?

no offense, but I think you should probably follow the tried and true methods that others use most of the time. such as having a rez for coolant expansion and having either one full loop or multiple separate loops rather than using splitters.
