My System Specs

Default Which connector do I need?

Got almost everything rounded up to put my gpu on its own loop except one last fitting. I need some sort of adapter or fitting that will allow my resevoir to be intergrated into both loops as its a pretty damn big dual bay resvoir.

So your reservoir have one inlet and one outlet but you want to multiply your inlet and outlet? You want to double the inlet and outlet, right?

So in a way you have 2 loop but both contaminate themselves because they share the same liquid?

Why don't you do a single loop?
Or you do that for aesthetic... Who knows..


Like said above, a picture say it all!

I would definitely suggest a single loop over a parallel loop using a shared reservoir.

I wanted a dual loop setup to get temps that ive yet to get . Ive spent an arm and a leg on my loop so far to get what I consider dismal results. I figured 2 loops just sharing the fluid would finally get me the temps im looking for.

Current gear - dont have a pic as when I get my new set of gear im gonna have to spend a weekend thinking it over to get what I want.

2 x MCP655
Danger Den Dual 5.25 resevoir (pic below)


EK Nickel block
EK Acryllic block and GTZ block (not sure which im going to use)
XSPC 360 + MCR220
3 x Ultra Kaze 38mm (still need more effin screws)
2 x scythe 1600rpm fans
A whole mess of compression fittings (still need a few more)

Dual loops will not improve temperatures. A single loop with the pumps in series would be your best bet.

wow what are your temps cause even with the old stuff you should be getting pretty good temps. i never seen anything over 70c with a mcr320 and a 355 pump and that was with @4.4ghz with a 4870 in the same loop. is your ambient just to high?? what is your ambient??. the gtz has a bracket on it that fits 1156/1366 so you don't have to change it just to let you know. please post pics and temps of dual loop when you get it setup ( i have never run a dual loop before )

Machine is off currently awaiting for 970 to come in.

Temps were in the high 70s for my cpu @ 3.90ghz (my chip was capable of a whole lot more) but heat was a detterent. I just wanted seperate loops in hope that one component wouldnt affect the other too much. And adding an additional 2 cores/4 threads would just make the problem a whole lot worse as well a 2nd 480 and a physx card that i plan on adding as well mighty soon.

Well since a dual loop off 1 resevoir doesnt seem to be a popular concept here ive come up with a concept for a big ass single loop. Im not sure if things will get messed up or not, and im hoping I can just add my gpus later on without much incident.

Here is the order my loop will run it.

Pump 1 -> GPU Block -> Rad 1 -> Pump 1 -> CPU -> Rad 2 - Resevoir

The parts in this loop will be:

XSPC 360
MCR240 , may swap it out for an XSPC 240
2 x MCP655s
EK Nickel 480 full coverage
Not sure on block as I have a GTZ , EK Acryllic , or Dtek Fusion V1.

Look good?
