Watercooling help needed from experts!

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello

I have just built my new system with dual loop.

CPU Loop:
i7 920
Feser 480mm radiator in Push/Pull
8xCoolerMaster 120mm fans
MCP655 pump
Swiftech Mirco Reservoir
All Bitspower fittings

GPU Loop:
Three EVGA GTX 580 Hydro Copper 2 in TRI-SLI
XSPC GTX 240 radiator in Pull
2xPanaflo 120mm fans
MCP655 pump
XSPC single bay reservoir
All Bitspower fittings

I have not started my system yet..waiting to get the questions answered first.

My question are:
1)Is 240mm radiator enough to cool three GTX 580?
2)Should I reverse my loop to put 240mm radiator for CPU and 480mm radiator for 3 GTX 580s?
3)Should I change my loop to one single loop with 2 pumps in series so I will get total 6x120 mm radiator to cool the i7 920 and three GTX 580 together?

Note: I have a Corsair 800D case..so only can fit a 240mm radiator on the bottom..wish I could fit bigger:rolleyes:

I am new to watercooling so any kind of help is appreciated!

Thanks.

id rather see you do 480 for your 580s instead of cpu

Keep your dual loop, but definitely switch the 480 rad over to the gpu's and put the 240 on the cpu. Much better temps for the gpu's that way, there's no way a 240 could handle 3 580's.

yup as other have said, definately use that 480mm rad on your gpus. Those gpus are going to put out way more heat than the cpu.
