    Hi all,

    I'm new here and i like to ask you a few questions :)

    Hope you can help me with this :cooldude:.

    Curent setup:

    Core2duo E8600
    Asus P5KC
    Mushkin 4GB XP2-8500 (996599)
    EVGA 260 216 core

    WC setup:

    D-tek Fuzion V2
    Koolance VID-428 (GeForce GTX 280/260)

    Black Ice GT Extreme 360mm
    Magicool 240mm (30mm)

    D5 Vario pump
    MagiCool Plexi 3 Port Reservoir 150mm.

    My question is which is the best setup to push water through the blocks ?

    Can my pump push water through 2xRadiators > VGA > CPU > NB > RES ?

    Is there a difference between a pump that pushes water up and a pump that pushes water up a little and then down ( i mean difference between TEMPS). I mean to push water through the VGA, CPU, NB (UP) and a pump that pushed water UP just in the CPU and then it goes down to the NB, VGA.

    Sorry for my english :(

    I'm new in this kind of business and i hope you can help to setup my configuration for the best TEMPS.

    Most people prefer the pump directly before the CPU block. The block you are using is a high-pressure type block, so I'd say go with: res> pump> CPU> NB> GPU> rad>rad>

    The important things for good temps are high pressure/flow for the blocks, plenty of air over the radiators, and a good seat of the blocks to the chips.

    With 2 rads, i'd usually have...:

    Res --> pump --> CPU --> 240 rad --> gpu --> nb --> 360 rad --> res
    or
    Res --> pump --> CPU --> nb --> 240 rad --> gpu --> 360 rad --> res

    I take this in consideration :).

    Good one :thumb:.

    I will upload photos soon with the loop.

    Thanks.

    The Fuzion is not a block that needs high pressure at all. It is a very non-restrictive block. Loop order makes very little difference when it comes to temps. Most loops will have less than 1c water temp difference across the loop. Some people think they need to go with some crisscrossed loop to put parts in a certain order. When looking at what order to put things, just go with whatever setup is the most natural and easiest loop order with the most direct and shortest runs. It is also a good idea to kind of go in a circular fashion from bottom to top to bottom so that bubbles bleed easier.

    Your 4th drawing down looks to me to be the simplest. I would mount the reservoir as high as possible so that air doesn't tend to get trapped in your CPU block.

    Your MCP655 will have no problem pushing through what you have. I have two MCR320s with CPU and GPU on a little MCP350 with XSPC top.
