New Custom Water Cooled Loop

Post by DJ Tucker » Thu Nov 22, 2018 7:21 am

As the title says I am doing a custom loop with gpu and cpu block a single 360 copper rad reservoir and pump standalone not integrated. This is the pump I am using.

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/SPD10-S ... 4c4dpeNnbv

As you can see the pump has 3 ports. Is it possible to have res connected to the top on the pump and the 2 outlets used to split the flow to gpu and cpu then have a T fitting to reconnect the gpu and cpu flow and into the rad? I want to do this so gpu and cpu have their own flow and not to share, although I know I will have reduced flow to each component in the process :)

Thanks in advance.

The problem I see is that if you have 3 hoses all the same size and try to take 2 of those flows into one, you will get a massive bottleneck and reduce flow significantly to everything and will compromise cooling. Might help if you have dual rads to run the flow through separate and then rejoin the flow but it will still be a lot less effective I would think.

I am no expert so hopefully someone with more knowledge will chime in.

Well I have decided to go 1in and 1 out for safety. so flow order is :

res>pump>gpu>cpu>360rad>res

All in all it has cost me £280 from £407. Ok so I used aliexpress for the gpu block, cpu block, pump and res. but all the parts I got was already on my ebay listing and yet was £70 less on aliexpress for the same parts here in the uk. They have all come from formulamod which I have used a few times outside of aliexpress. The hose, coolant, fittings and radiator came from uk and thanks to black Friday I saved an additional £57 on top of the £70 I saved using aliexpress :shock:

I know right. I have been checking the delivery status everyday even though I know it would not of changed yet. It's like waiting for a reveal of your fav show so you know the date it will be starting again. I'm sat on the edge waiting ever so impatiently for the arrival and full day disassemble and reassemble of the loop :shock:

its that bad that I have even made arrangements for the kids to go out for the day with a family member on the day before it arrives. My delivery company has ensured me I will be informed the day before it's due to be delivered so I can make kids arrangements :lol:
