My question is fairly simple. But I bet finding the answer using search engines would be a frustrating experience. I know because I have tried that resource already. Here is what I need to know. Can a Thermaltake ProWater 850i Liquid Cooling system support two AquaBay M4 Hard Drive Waterblocks? I think the ProWater 850i would most likely handle one AquaBay M4 Hard Drive Waterblock. I’m wondering if two would put to much of a strain on the pump? Will the radiator be able to cool that much hot fluid flowing into it?
From what I am seeing it looks as if I would run the tubing from the pump to the CPU waterblock. Then from the CPU to the AquaBay M4 Hard Drive Waterblock. I was wanting to do it the opposite way. But I had concerns about the CPU being properly cooled. That and the directions that came with the AquaBay M4 Hard Drive Waterblock make it look as if I should direct the tubing to the CPU waterblock first. Again my concern would be if the Thermaltake ProWater 850i Liquid Cooling system could handle two liquid hard drive coolers along with the CPU. I currently am not cooling my graphics card. I’ve got two Vantec hard drive coolers installed at the moment. These currently cool fairly decently. However even when on low with the case door closed they make a bit to much noise. Especially now that I have reduced the number of fans in my case and put the remain fans on their lowest setting.
I’m hoping that with the two AquaBay M4 Hard Drive Waterblocks in place that my noise levels will almost be as close to silent as possible. Then again I purchased a new UV reactive case fan that may not be as quiet as the multi colored fan I’m running currently. Any polite advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated. I’d prefer to not destroy any components while trying to figure things out on my own.
