Double Reservoir?


Hello everyone,

I am in a process of building a new water cooled rig and have a few questions for you pro's.

Here is what I am trying to do:

I'd like to have 2 reservoirs with 2 different colors in them.

1st would be connected to pump/radiator #1 and the CPU
2nd would be connected to pump/radiator #2 and the GPU

Are there any pro's or con's to doing a setup like that?

So, you mean two seperate loops with each one having it's own pump and res where the liquids never mix?

You get btter thermal performane with one loop, but not in all builds.

If one loop where fluids mix you only need one res.

I wish we had more info on these types of posts for the 1,000th time.

You want colored liquid? I'll say NO right now. You better do your research about dyes etc before building. Nightmares and ruined stuff awaits you.

A primer...............
