Hmm the idea of parallel cooling with smaller tubing may not be as stupid as it looks.

If you cool serial (the normal way, nb->sb->CPU for example) the last item will recieve warmer fluid than the rest. If you use parallel cooling they will all get the cool fluid, although a lot less.

The advantage of using smaller tubing is the fact that pressure will remain about equal. Going from 1/2" to 2*1/2" will drop both the fluid pressure and speed by quite a lot. Using for exampel 2*3/8" or 2*1/4" will keep the speed and pressure up a bit more.

But this is theory, I think the resistance of splitting and joining already makes this inefficient

If this is a single loop (can't even see that) I'm feeling sorry for the pump though :/

EDIT: oh and he should have left out the two (or even more?) temperature probes out if this is a permanent setup.

I suppose the question is, what are the temps like?! That's really funny if it is one loop too. Where's the source of that image?

The source image came from a emulation site I'm a member of.

I thought serial cooling pumped so hard that the temperature quickly balanced and any potential "warmer" water from the previous item in the loop would be minimal at best.

I have traced the tubing a few times and have come to the conclusion it is a single loop.

I think this rates in the 'All the gear but no idea' sector :-)

Still its a good warning, you can over-do things kids !!

Indeed, I believe when using water cooling, the temperature of the liquid is much the same over the whole loop.
