Front radiator fitted
Probably one of the hardest connections I have ever done, petg tubing was done completely blind, was a simple 90 degree bend, but measuring the length was difficult, reservoirs are connected to the 360 radiator behind the pumps.
Not easy to tighten and make sure the fittings sealed correctly, but all worked out in the end

Not much done today, just did the pre filter from the front radiator.

Hopefully progress more tomorrow

This is the planned flow of the build, will see how close we end up to it in the end

please tell me it's only the angle at which we are seeing it, but that reservoir angle :eek:
It’s the angle, don’t worry I spotted it and checked it more then once

Dual tubes across GPUs makes more sense. Blocks are designed to have better heat transfer in a specific flow direction.

Will look into that, but never quite understood the flow of dual connections between cards.

have 360 connected straight after the gpu and that should dissipate the heat

It's basically like tee-ing off the inlets and the outlets. As long as the pressure drop across each card is the same then the liquid should be distributed evenly.

They way you've got it there the second card will get the heat from the first card and the fluid will not have the same cooling capacity as it did through the first. You'd have to somehow put the rad inbetween to fix that, which would make a mess of pipes.

But saying all this I don't know how SLI loads each card. Does one work harder than the other? Maybe it would be beneficial if that is the case
