240mm Rad for TT Level10 GT Case

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello

I'm currently building a new system, and I'm kinda stuck on deciding which radiator to get (top 240mm one). I was originally thinking about getting the XSPC RX240, but since it's 6cm thick (+ fans), I'm not so sure it will fit.

Can anyone help me out here? If this one really doesn't go well with my case, which one should I get?

Cheers

You could go with the RS240 or the Swiftech QP series, both of which are lower fin density and less thick radiators, so they'll give you more room and work with slower fans.

How much room will you have, then we can try to maximize what can fit in your space?
Also, what will you be cooling?

For now, just an 990x i7. It will be seriously overclocked.

However, I am also considering full WC right from the start. That would expand the system to my 2 GTX590s.

I know that the case is pretty roomy, but I still not so sure if the 6cm thick rad will fit, let alone with another 120mm rad on the back.


Also, what would be the best option for cooling? A single loop with 1x 240mm rad + 2x 120mm rads for the CPU and 2x GTX590s, or 2 separate loops, one for the CPU and another one for the cards?

There's really no benefit to separating the loops (there's a good article around here somewhere, check the thread at the top about useful watercooling links/threads). I would get the biggest radiator you can handle, because that means less fan noise. I would also suggest the smallest quantity of radiators as possible for simplicity's sake. You could go ape**** and get that 9x120 radiator and install it on the back side of your case. Or you could try a really dense 360 radiator, like the HW-Labs SR-1 or GTX with fast fans on them.

Those components put out a TREMENDOUS amount of heat, definitely too much for a 360 with all of them. Probably 2 360s if you're not overclocking... Hopefully someone more knowledgeable than I will reply with a more precise answer though.

I think I'm better off making a new thread. This is becoming more about the whole watercooling circuit than just what radiator to get. Regardless, thanks a lot for your replies!
