So one rad and 2 580s walk into a case...

post #1 of 33
Thread Starter 
...yeah no joke there.

Anyway can one 360 rad effectively cool a 2600k and two 580s?

How do tell what pump to use? The d5 looks like the "Best" in reviews and all, but how do I know how "Restrictive" my loop will be.

Reservoir size, does it really matter? Will a slot bay work as well as a two slot bay?

I don't think it'll cut it, but I have no wc'ing exp.

Can you fit a 480 or an additional 240? To me, you put your stuff under water to have great temps and little noise, and I think it would take more rad to get there.

I think the res is all preference.

Sorry, but you would need AT LEAST another 240, best off getting another 360. Reservoir size does NOT matter, but the smaller the res, the more you will have to refill the reservoir.

To make your loop less retrictive, I use ek blocks. I also used a MPC 350 x2 for my 570 SLI, CPU, and chipset blocks along with a 200mm and 240mm rad.


Hope it will help

Would 2 120s linked together work as well as the 240?

Im getting a HAF X case and noticed a 240 wont fit in the bottom, but two 120s linked will.

Yes 2 120's will work just as well. And as said before one 360 will not cut it even with how much cooler the SB's run.

A Black Ice GTX 360 was enough for when I had an i7 920, Rampage II Extreme, and 2x 480s all overclocked in the same loop. I see no reason why it's not enough for a CPU and GPUs that run even cooler. So my answer is yes, a single good 360 radiator will handle them.

You might get away with a thicker 480 rad, but you would most likely need more than just a 360. I'd say a 360 + 240 would be ideal.

Also, I forgot to mention it really depends on whether you want a quiet loop or not. If your okay with fan noise, like nuclear said, you could run a gtx 360 rad with 3 higher speed 38mm thick fans and be fine. But if you like a quieter setup, your definitely going to need more rad.

What kind of noisy fans were you using and what kind of REAL temps. Whats the point of him going to watercooling just to be as loud as an air setup.

Noise I dont mind at all. Just as long as I see a serious curb in temps.

I havent ordered the parts yet, but looking at one of the EK Rads with all there parts to start a loop. I like the black acetal look.

EDIT: Scythe Ultra Kaze DFS123812H-3000 rpm would these fans be high speed?
