im rebuilding my system into a new case, and space is tight. waht would be the min spec i need for cooling a i7-920 and a gtx 580?
both items are at stock, and doubtfull i'll ever oc them. but lets allow for a small increse, ~10-15% say. wanting to keep it as simple as possible, and in 1 loop.
also, can only use 120 rads due to mounting location, so something that i can but together would be great. also needs to be low noise. i have only got 55mm between the mobo and the psu, so low profile on the chip aswell.
also, am unable to run a res, due to no mounting location.
i just used that fitting as an example, the fitting/ hose size might be incorrect.
i would also like all black peferably as i think it will look neater, but clear hose is fine. will be filled with plain old distilled water, and i'll throw a kill coil in there so to eliminate any nasties. how long do the coils last?
and here are somemore pics of the area that i haveto work with.
its a 4u rack mount case, not exactly designed to have a home server/gaming pc in one setup. but its working out well so far. i looked into this alot, and have had some parts custom modified to suit this setup aswell.
i know that i can move the psu to the other space, above the mobo. but what it where it is. and the fan holes are 120mm,so keeping it to 120 rads is needed, as you can see, there is limited space there, and i will need to but them together, i know that this will effect heat dissapation, so will add 1 more rad to counter that. would like the mose efficent rads though, so that its not heaps thick, and noise is a big thing. so quiet is a must.
45 x 4tb. so, around 180 tb of storage. cooling the drives is easy, 6 silent 120mm fans, thinking noctua pwm or somthing similar. but cooling the 580 and the 920 are my problem. i only have 55mm between the chip and the base of the psu.
