1x140mm rad worth it?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
In the near future i plan on adding another loop in my system for my GPUs, i currently have a 240rad for my cpu, my question is if i have my cpu running off a 140mm rad would i get good temps? Or would i be better off just installing a H50/70, I have an 800D and i don't want to mod it because when it comes to mods im literally clueless and would end up doing damage lol thanks for any advise.

I would do the closed loop solution. Get an H60 and use the 240 for the GPU's. Much easier, and gives good temps.

adding an extra 140mm to your loop for your cpu is fine and will work great, if your concerned about it you can easily fit 2 140mm rads into an 800d which is more than enough for 2 gpus's and a cpu.

for reasonable temps you want roughly 120mm of radiator per component your cooling.

Have you considered maybe selling your 240 and getting a thick 360, like the rx series from xspc to put in the top of your 800D? With that rad and push/pull fans, you should be able to cool the cpu + gpu(s).
