Throwing RAM in the loop?
Im new here and just completed my first watercooling setup. It was simple and easy with a solo CPU loop....
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.
I have twelve 90-degree fittings, a full board block, and a RAM block. :thumb:
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 >-)
You don't have to use a Y-Splitter to WC your Ram.
Can anyone show a diagram or write how they would put RAM in a loop? I know RAM blocks are pretty restrictive. Also, RAM-33 , RAM-33 seems like the best chouce out there right now. If you run the parallel splitting each one, say 1 - 1/2" tube split into 4 - 1/4 inch tubes going in, reduce the amount of restriction vs running 1/2" in and linking them?
basically what you need for that setup is 2x manifolds like this one and I would try to run the ram parallel on a seperate pump. I tried the manifold thing sharing with the cpu and it doesnt work very well. You'll definately be happier with a dual loop. Single 120mm rad should handle ram no problem.
You'll need 3x 1/4 barbs and a 90* barb if you use those specific ones Levesque had someone interesting quad manifolds on his video cards. Because the barbs I linked are adjustable it makes much easier to fiddle with and setup.
I happen to own them and they are very high quality manifolds.
Two G 1/4 BSP socket plugs and two base mounting screws are included. G 1/4 BSP nozzle sockets, nickel-plated brass, anodized aluminum base (not in contact with coolant). what is? material
You could always use an f splitters and feed 2 moduals at a time. Thus maintaining a better flow value too. Let me copy your picture and re draw.
You could make f splitters from these too.. some more options.
Nozzle Body, 5-Way Brass [no nozzles] - Water cooling systems, pc liquid cooling kit, cpu, video card, hard drive
beware koolance like to use poorly plated steel in the past
take a magnet to it
