I noticed you're cooling the GPUs in parallel, is that effective? Isn't there a danger of short circuiting and impeding the cooling of the top two GPUs? Not a criticism, I'm just curious.
Parallel wont cause any impeded cooling because "cool" water flows into each GPU at an even pressure. It seems like a weird concept but once there is no air in the lines pressure is equal in all GPU blocks and flow to each is only slowed slightly.
The short circuiting concern makes no difference in series and parallel config as they have the same water loop contacting all the GPUs and CPU, ect...
