watercooling

i already have a Thermochill PA120.3 in my system. i have a spare 120 rad not doing anything would it hurt performance if i put it in my loop,at the minute im only cooling my cpu but i plan to put my gpu and nortbridge in the loop in the next month or so

Hi Woppy, what you pushing the loop round with atm?

An ultra would manage the extra restriction no worries i would have thought.

Dont think temps will change but there may be other that can add further to the idea?

The choice of blocks will make a difference too.

Obviously if youve not decided on the GPU block then this cant be taken into consideration atm.

Id wait to add the rad in untill you add the other blocks into the loop and the ultra will cope fine. Just adding it in now you will see next to no difference in temps.

Aye a PA120.3 is enough for a 920 and 5870 on it's own, but I wouldn't bother with the extra hassle until your ready to re-do the whole loop as 1.

Remember radiators are the least restrictive components of a watercooling loop (bar reservoirs), so pump power isn't so important when it comes to adding radiator area... it's more a subject of diminishing returns.
