    Question Time?

    Im trying to find a set of water cooling blocks that can run from a 8mm ID system but then be able to be upgraded to a 1/2" or 3/4" sytem when i get enough money? would alpha cool water blocks do the job?

    hi this is a small update to give you a quick example of how the water cooling will be in my case in both phases

    mmm, spaghetti...

    i've always thought that if the water goes through one gfx card and then another, the second one will get warm water, thus lesser cooling. Wouldn't it be a better idea to have a Y connector followed by a valve to stop it circulating and then another Y connector to join it again... This way both cards get cold water.

    That way it could go:

    RAD
    \/
    PUMP
    \/
    /\
    /''''\
    GFX Card 1 - GFX Card 2
    \.../
    \/
    (the little square chip..)
    \/
    Resivoir​

    if u have the split right after the pump then there would be no worries about one card getting more water than the other as the pressure would be pretty even there.

    just a thought.

    Not really it wont raise it too much(1-2 degrees) and if you do the Y connection 1 of the graphics cards will get more flow than the other because water takes the path of least resistance so that will change temps more than just warmer water.

    also each gfx card gets less water, so that will also raise thempreatures, i dont think it makes alot of difference, and you will just end up with both cards being hotter

    Also, heat froms from hot to cold, the water is unlikely to deposit its "heat" into the waterblock

    dont forget the Y splitter adds yet another piece of resistance in the loop

    I am going to keep my system as i have stated in the loop which has a dual loop

    RES
    /***\
    Pump***Pump
    |******/*\
    CPU***GFX GFX
    |******\*/
    Voltage***North
    Block*****Bridge
    \****/
    RAD
    |
    RES

    This is so that the pumps have an unrestricted flow of water (cause my rad has a small ID)
