1xEK-Supreme HF High Flow - CPU Water Block "Easy Mount" - Copper/Acetal

1xBlack Ice® GTX Gen Two Xtreme 360 Highest Performance Radiator

1xXSPC Bay Reservoir 5.25" - Aluminum Front -Black/Silver

1xDanger Den/Laing DDC 3.25 -12V 18 Watt Version

1xEK-DDC X-TOP Rev 2 Black Acetal

2xEK-FC570/580 GTX+ for Nvidia GTX 570/580 Reference Design - Acetal

12xEK-PSC Fitting 10mm - G1/4 Black

2xMasterkleer Tubing PVC 13/10mm (3/8"ID) UV-reactive Black 3,3m (10ft)

1xFeser One F1 Cooling Fluid - Clear/UV Blue - 1 Liter

1xAkust Cable (power big-4pin to 4sets 3pin adapter cable)

3xScythe Gentle Typhoon 120 mm by Nidec Servo Corp. - 5400 RPM Speed

This setup will be cooling an 2600k and dual 580s evga. The danger den ddc pump is the same as others so that DDC XTOP from EK will fit on it?

I bought extra tubing so I could set this up outside the case first, since this will be my first watercooling setup.

I dont really care about noise, so the fans I chose high speed ones, especially because of one rad. I might get a couple 120s later to fit into the front bottom of my HAF X case.

Anyway, please advise/comment/rant/rave/rage/riddle!

Thanks for any comments.

Yep. Any DDC top should fit any DDC pump.

Although why go for the separate res, top and pump? You can get the XSPC bay res that holds a DDC pump, turns the whole thing into one unit. Plus you then need 2 less fittings, bonus.

The GTX 360 with 5400 RPM fans will be able to cope with 2 GTX580s and a CPU. Lets say 250W each for the GPUs, 200W for the CPU = 700W total. Add a bit for OC'ing, lets say as much as 900W.

If we look at the results from Skinnee's triple rad comparison, the GTX360 looks like this:



So you can dissipate 900W with 2800RPM fans and be under 10°C delta. Bump that up to 5400RPM fans and you are looking at less than 5°C delta; great performance, just with jet engine noise.


Edit:

Ditch the coolant, they have a tendency to break down and gunk things up. Just use distilled and PT nuke or a silver kill coil. With your components you will only see it in your res anyway, and you can get a similar effect with some LEDs mounted in said res.

Outstanding info! Im going for the single res with the room for DDC pump, saved me some bucks!!

Your the best, any other advice? 10 fittings should be enough?

Should work. Just make sure that those fittings match the OD of your tube too (13mm); with compression fittings you have to match both the ID and OD of the fitting to the tube.

Edit: Another thing to check is the spacing between your cards; there might not be enough space for two compression fittings. If that is the case then it might be worth getting some kind of SLi connector, like this one from Koolance, and ditching two of the compression fittings. Another option is to get 2 stubby barbs, but you would also need some clamps to go with them.

OP, be advised you are going to need more radiator. Not my fault when you see your CPU idle at 45C stock. I know that the Black ICE GTX have a high fpi (sucks for low/medium speed fans like your AP15's)but you are going to need to run those 5400RPM fans off of a 24v PSU like a meanwell.

Pretty sure I wouldnt blame you. Going to try this, if it doesnt work will add a couple 120s, but really want everything inside.
