    Dual processor cooling

    I have a dual processor setup

    2 x 250 opteron
    Tyan Thunder K8WE (2895)
    ATI Radeon X800 Pro
    Antec Titan 550 Case

    I am looking at water cooling this to make it silent. Also I am looking at upgrading the 250's to 280's. So what I need is the best way of cooling all this and leaving enough room in the system for when I update to the 280's.

    All suggestions welcome!

    2 A64 block's....get the best you can afford

    1/2'' tubing

    Thermochill PA120.3

    Aquaxtreams 50z pump (as per my sig)

    Some res

    You could run 2 pumps to each block or have a spliter off the pump to each block then back to one and then to the rad

    It'll be a nice setup and keep it uber cool

    I would try and use 2 pumps as new waterblocks like higher pressure right in the middle of the CPU block for maximum efficiency and splitting it will halve the pressure to each obviously. But it depends what you've got space for.

    I'm building a dual 265 rig as per this thread Happy Birthday oceaness! and want to use dual pumps to watercool it.

    Thanks for your replies.

    Would it not be as easy to route the output of one CPU block to the other. From what I understand this will only increase the water going to the second CPU block by a couple of degrees. That way you keep your water pressure up.
