    Quick watercooling query...

    Heya,

    I'm just planning my shift to full w/c loop and was wondering - Would having a second, small rad really cause as much flow disruption as some people suggest?

    Basically, I'm speccing an EK X-Res100 Vario to 780GPU block, to externally mounted 120mm rad, back in to an EK Supremacy Evo, up to a 240mm rad and then back in to the Res. Might go the opposite way around, as that'd be an easy swap, but regardless...

    I've been more worried that there won't be enough rad, but now it's been suggested that the extra 120mm would cause flow problems... yet they weren't so concerned over the 45º and 90º fittings I was considering!


    Are they talking out their Firewire port, or is there a genuine concern, do you think?


    Cheers,
    Tasky.

    I struggle to imagine how an additional 120mm rad can be a problem, especially considering you have a D5 vario in there.

    With a DDC or something I might be worried, but considering a D5 is easily capable of quad SLI + CPU + 480 rad with flow to spare I wouldn't worry about it.
