Hi
That is a weird setup. I have never seen anyone or tried to do parallel radiators before. There should be worse as even though the water is splitting evenly, half the water is only going through...

As you said you can only put a 240 in front if you have a 480 on the side. I would recomend the UT 60 series as i know it fits and but both the 240 and 480 in the bottom, they have better cooling for...

Even with rad overkill block conduction comes in to play so i agree that either it is a freezer in that room or something is wrong with the temp, unless the reading is as soon as he turns the pc on (...

Hi
My first question would be: How long has the system been up? and How long do you plan on waiting to do this again? Both ways are options but I usually dont replace everything every taredown. I do...

Hi
It looks like a nice setup. I would personally go with at least 480 + 240 radiator as even though the 360 + 240 would likely be just enough i would rather have some room to play with and keep...

The problem with an air tight enclosed system is that anything that is not touching the backplate is basically not getting any cooling. So would would have to ensure that components that do fine with...

That is one of my arguments for using distilled water. I know it is not 100% as it can still conduct with dust but i have had one of my previous GPU's fully powered with a puddle on it the size of a...

My advice would be not to obsess about it. The order of the components makes little if any difference. You want short tube runs and a clean look. I would use Radeon HDX's mockup. And try to rout as...

This is normal behavior. As the pump starts it creates an area or high pressure in front and low pressure behind which causes water to be sucked in if your res goes directly into the pump. If the...

I do not own the Apogee XL but rather the HD. In my experience this is more related to the fact that it is harder to tell if you have threaded correctly on acetal top blocks. The reason i say this is...

I would be very careful. One of main disadvantages of Acetal is that it strips easily and is hard to fix. Barbs should go in by hand only. Tools are risky. The only time i have had problems like the...

I think i understand what you mean. As long as you are able to fill the reservoir and have easy access to the ports it should work but bleeding may be harder. Just take into account that the pump...

It depends on the premix you use but most contain some type of algaecide and corrosion preventer (otherwise they would be distilled water) so you should not need a kill coil with premixes. Silver and...

What i meant is that if startup voltage is 5.1 v a 5v conversion may or may not reliably start the pump depending on what yor psu is actually putting out. If it is more it will be ok. Tolerances are...

It should be ok to undervolt the pump as it is rated from 6-12v with startup voltage being 5-5.1v and may be higher for your pump. You may need a rheostat or resistors rather than the 5v output. ...

Looks good.
1) There is no set volume required for reservoirs. Many loops don't even include one and replace then with a T or Y line. It just makes it easier to fill and bleed the system. For the...

Push/pull will add little. The main thing is how concerned are you with noise as the more FPI, the more powerful the fans and the more noise generated.
