That's some serious PC work! What GPU is that?

Thank you, it's just a GTX 1080 FE that I bought at launch for a premium. It has lasted quite a while and I finally might put it to rest when the new RTX cards are out.

The beauty. If you have not finished this project. Try using 2 radiators.

I often do not clearly state my thoughts. google translate is far from perfect. And in addition to the translator, I myself am mistaken. Do not take me seriously.

There are two radiators there, do check closely. I've got a EK PE240 and a PE360 there.

You have hot water flowing from the processor to the video card, when you connect a second heatsink practically makes no sense. 4x120 will completely cope with heat from two components. But if you change the connection order, then you can apply cold water to both the processor and the video card. Look again at the picture.

Sorry but you do understand that a waterloop reaches equilibrium after some time. And at that point the order doesn't matter at all right? And that a waterloop is basically a closed system.

Also it's cold water entering the CPU then going to the GPU and on to the second radiator before going into the reservoir. Regardless, order doesn't matter whatsoever.

I been watercooling for over a decade. This build is 3 years old and my GPU never hits 55C.
