Aqualis XT and and Airplex Modularity System 420 Radiator.

Donnerstag, 18. Juli 2013, 17:20

Hi I have a Aquacomputer Airplex Modularity System 420 Radiator with built in pump and reservoir.
I was wondering if I can add a reservoir like the Aqualis XT to the loop safely.
If so, are there any advantages or disadvantages to adding the reservoir? Also my plan would be to add the new reservoir before the modularity system and after the CPU block.

Hmm... any one around to help ?!

I don't think. Maybe you can get less water power because of another one element on the loop. Maybe...

Would adding the Aqualis XT add to cooling performance ?

Sure you can add another reservoir...at any place in the loop you like...no problem....but a reservoir is not an active cooling element....it is only a container to store the coolant, nothing more. If you want to increase the cooling performance...the first choice would be to increase the surface of the heat exchanger...the radiator...2nd would be to increase the amount of the cooling air...faster or more (push/pull) fans....and 3rd would be to increase the flow-rate of the coolant....faster speed of rotation or more pumps....

You can add an additional reservoir with no problems at all.

All elements added to the loop will decrease flow somewhat but reservoirs have minimal restriction.

It won't help or hinder cooling. However, by adding more fluid to the loop the fluid temperature will change more slowly. This can be desirable (e.g. it will reduce sudden changes in fan speed where the fans are controlled by the fluid temp) or it can be undesirable (because it prevents sudden short changes in component temperature from being reflected in fluid temperature).
