If they come with the odd plug you can pop the two wires out and put them in the correct plug which is nice and easy.
or you could do like me and force the two pin plug onto a 3 pin
this may sound strange but aslong as the water is flowing does it really matter how much restriction is caused by how many block/ components you put in the loop?
restriction will cause slower flow causing a hit in cooling performance.
Them kind go over the RAM chips and it adds more heat to the water for almost no overclocking gain
the RAM doesn't add any heat to the water at all...You lose cooling on the GPU because the block is so big instead of concentraded solely on the GPU.
Max - you really shouldn't get those full block GPU coolers.... you're better off with a MAZE4 for the GPU and getting some RAMsinks for the RAM...although RAM really doesn't even get hot enough to necessitate their use, they look pretty
That first pic you posted is restricted is hell with what looks like an RBX block, chipset block, GPU block, flow meter, y-splitters galore and god knows what else...hell it even looks like he's using 3/8" tubing as well as the 2nd pic you posted.
That reservoir in the 2nd pic is probably home made as it looks like it's housing a submerisble pump.
This is specialblends setup...he might have showed you already
He's got a TDX block, MAZE4 GPU, D4 pump and 2 120mm chrome black ice (I think) radiators.
This is mine: (although not as pretty as specialblends
I have the same thing he's got except instead of using radiators I've got a heater core which uses 2 120mm fans and I modded it with 5/8" barbs
I only assume by your 'should I be cooling the mobo' you're referring to the chipset which no you don't need to water cool that.
You should really get nothing less than a TDX block for the CPU...if you want to mix it up you could go with RBX, but they are 3 barbs...one with water flowing in and the other 2 barbs have water flowing out and are connected with a y-splitter...can be more of a pain in the ***....besides those blocks if you wanted even better you'd be in a waiting list to get the block and pay some mad cash.
