I hope it works!

Hi all.

Just wanna know if this will work with my new parts i'm ordering.

(hopefully this method will decrease temps!)

Pump->y-splitter->gpu --->y-splitter->rad->res

I would say that's not a great idea. Run them:

Pump>RAD>CPU>GPU>Res>Pump

Water will take the easiest route it can, the path of least resistance.

Therefore you will not get even flow through both blocks resulting in bad cooling.

Running a single loop will be fine mate.

Yeah soz I was a little short but pretty much what he said, I was gonna say. You don't want uneven flow in your loop

I have this exact setup(bigwater 760i) and my average gpu temp is 50oC and my cpu is at least 40oC (idle) this is the reason i am ordering all these new parts.

Thank you for the reply, i appreciate it.

And if y-splitters cause un-even flow, why do retailers sell them?

(I'm a blank slate)lol

Well that's the reason for the awful temps. Buy a decent setup andyou will have no issues at all.
