Ok, so I'm building my new system (first one in about 5 years!) and wanted your views on my custom loop that I'm thinking of doing.
First of all the specs of the system
Corsair Air 540
Gigabyte GA-Z97-UD3H Black Edition
Core i5 4690k
16GB Avexir Core Series Blue
Sapphire AMD R9 290X 8GB Vapor-X
Coolermaster V1000 PSU
Asus Xona Xense Soundcard
Water cooling parts
Barrow Clear Acrylic Water Tank Inline Reservoir 220mm x 65mm
VGA Water block
Alphacool 120mm rad
CPU water block
All acrylic tubing
various Barrow fittings
The last time I did a water cooling build was back in the DFI LanParty NF4 mobo days, so it's been a while.
Now, I know that a basic rule of thumb is to have the reservoir above the pump so that gravity does it's job and the liquid falls down into the pump as the pump should never be ran dry. I've done a basic rudimentary sketch in Paint with the case as a background and I wanted your opinions on it. But my main question is, would one D5 pump be enough to pump the liquid through 2 rads and 2 water blocks, bearing in mind that the loop will be kind of big (you'll know what I means after having a look at the picture).
By the way the pump will be in the back of the case so will be out of view.
Anyways, much appreciated people
