Upcoming Ivy Bridge WC Upgrade

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
*Note* It could either end up LGA 2011, Ivy Bridge or Bulldozer depending on benches. I just wanted more of a general idea on a WC setup for what i intend to do.


I have been recently thinking of a new project that i will be working on sometime by the end of this year. What i intend to do is to buy myself a Obsidian 800D Case + Ivy Bridge + Motherboard + Crossfire Radeon 7000 Cards and WC both video cards + the CPU.

What i have Now:

XSPC Rasa
XSPC RX 360 Rad
3x Gentle Typhoons 1450 RPM

Buy few more Barbs + Fittings + All New Tubing

I also have a dual XSPC Reservoir that fits a single Pump
I also have a Swiftech MCP 355 Pump
Also have an extra Dual Radiator which i intend to use, MCR 220 I think it's Called.

When i do this upgrade when the time comes, money will not be to much of an issue, any suggestions on what i should get to make my LC Setup a great success will be greatly appreciated.

Not sure what kind of pump / reservoir setup i should have for this kind of setup, suggestions?

The Core i7 i have now will end up being my 2nd comp since i have a few extra things that can make this happen.

Since we don't know anything about power consumption on the 7xxx series nor on Ivy Bridge chips, it's hard to say... If it's the same power or less than the 6xxx series and Sandy Bridge, then you should be fine with that radiator setup, as I'm adding my second 6950 overclocked and unlocked to my GTX360 setup soon, and thus far with 1 6950 and my 2600k overclocked to 4.3ghz, I haven't had any problems with heat. If the specs are higher or you do have heat problems, you'll be able to plumb in that MCR220 and it'll definitely leave enough headroom for all of those components.

For a reservoir/pump setup, it's really up to you... The sky is the limit (actually case room is usually the limit). You've already got a MCP355. I'm running one with the XSPC res/top, and I think it's pretty good. it certainly does both jobs (pump flow increase and reservoir) well. Or you can use your existing dual reservoir... It's really up to you, I don't think you can go wrong?

I've been really impressed with Primochill Primoflex tubing thus far, and am using simple G1/4 to 1/2" barbs with worm-drive clamps over them on 7/16" ID tubing, and after moving my computer in a trunk for 500 miles and through two houses over a few days, I can say that the clamp/tubing combination has worked really well.

With IB being on a 22nm process and using the new 3D gate technology it should be a lot cooler than your current CPU, even overclocked. I think your current setup should be enough. For two GPUs, add in the second radiator and your temps should be good. Now I say should because I can't confirm how hot an IB chip or AMD 7xxx GPU really is at stock let alone OCed.

I highly suggest using that MCP pump instead of the Rasa res/pump. Might be easier to just buy a rx360 rad, xspc rasa cpu block, and some quality tubing / barbs.

I thought what he listed is what he owned. Or is this a list of what he has in his cart?

I think that he already owns the RX360 rad, Rasa block, and the XSPC dual bay res (not necessarily the x20 750 res/pump combo).

Can the OP confirm that the XSPC Dual Bay res is not the x20 750 and is the res/top version, not simply the res only? Thanks.

Either way, OP's existing rad, block, res, pump should be fine for a next gen build. If anything perhaps adding a 120mm rad to the front or bottom of the 800d could help keep temps down on the CPU + 2xGPU loop.

Yeah the dual bay res i have is not just the res alone, the single pump i have can be installed inside the dual bay res if that helps clear things up.

I was thinking about getting a swiftech mcp 6xx pump, though that pump can not be installed in the res that i have.

Your current pump is good for your setup. The MCP 655 won't add any real performance value.

the MCP 355 will be able to handle two loops with two rads? The only reason i wanted to go with the better pump is because my room gets quite hot and i assumed maybe the 655 would fair better with the heat environment. I do live in Florida.
post #10 of 21
Do you mean 3 blocks? If you are running multiple loops you need multiple pumps.

If you keep some air flow over the the 355 it shouldn't burn up. If you overly concerned you can get a res like this with the 655 if you like that style.
