Default Re: Post Your Rig 2012 Edition

One thing I did notice when I used to watercool my Rig. Some pumps push better and some suck better. I had the D5 and it would push some serious water through the loop. But once when I was trying something out, I had the pump up higher and it doesn't suck the water worth a damn. I'm not sure where the pump is in this loop, but that maybe why he had such a big temp difference.

No, it's better than an open loop with extra parts to cool, unless you have multiple Rads. Even then 1 loop for the CPU and another for the Graphics is still the best. Unless your case doesn't have the room and then you don't have much choice.
