Yeah it's the same one. I'm looking at the barb options for a parallel loop as we speak. :)

While we're on the subject... I don't suppose you remember what make / model that block is do you?

Well... that's what it looks like roughed in. I'll give it a try and if the temps are completely OTL then I'll just have to come up with a different solution to the cramped confines of the case.

i missed your parrelle setup, thought was 2 GPU's and CPU

best go series

Heh.... Nope I'm a few days away from being able to power it up. ;)

I could conceivably run water through the loop today, but we wouldn't learn anything until I can get the system up for temp monitoring.

On a positive note, I've had this setup under water already (my last build in the bitfenix ghost) so I've got temps to compare the results to.

That block was from an XSPC kit that Grinder gave me. It's a few years old that block but served me well. Seems to be workin pretty good still!!

Yep it's still plugging along. :-)

Loop is complete, in place, and currently doing unmonitored overnight leak testing. Should be able to power it on for temps tomorrow. I mentioned it over in my build thread already, but might as well mention here that I've got good flow through the GPU block so I'm fairly confident that it's going to work out considering how little resistance there is in the CPU block.

Quick and dirty results are in and they're mostly positive.

The CPU block appears to be on par with the previous serial loop in a traditional case and while the GPU temps seem to have taken a bit of a hit it's not that bad.

CPU after 20 minutes OCCT was 63 vice 58 (about on par considering +5c ambient) and after 15 minutes Kombustor the GPU is maxing out at 69c which is about 10c more than what I remember so it's off by about 5c even after adjusting for a higher ambient temp.

Quite frankly if the only hit was about 5c on the vid card I'm more than happy with the outcome.

On that note, I probably won't be updating this thread with any more results as I don't want to double post too often between this thread and my build log ( HAF XB WC Build ). I'll still respond to any questions / comments though. :)

edit: Ok, where's that sheepish grin smiley???? guess this will have to do....

When testing a new loop, it's usually a good idea to first ensure that all of the rad fans are running....

More accurate results to follow later today........

That won't work very good at all. Flip your rad so the barbs are on the left, run it in series.

It's actually working fine. I'm seeing better temps currently than I had with the same hardware installed w/ a serial loop in a different case.

More testing required but I'm currently getting a peak of 54c on the cpu after 3 hours of OCCT.
