Have you considered an externally mounted radiator though, drill a few holes in your case, get a mounting kit and you could have a 360GTX on top with a 120mm inside, that'd work ok and cheaper (for the surface area)


Also, If you're going with Hardware labs GTX stuff, I can't state this enough, you need strong high RPM fans, and a powerful pump.
Would the 35X be able to do the 360 rad, 120 rad, cpu block, 2x gpu blocks, ram block, and eventually a mosfet block? Or would I need to get two of them?

If you put the GPU blocks in parallel instead of series, you halve the resistance of them.

That said, that is a lot to have in a loop, I think the 35x will work, but you'll prob see benefits from having another pump in series with it.


You wont need two pumps without the RAM and Chipset cooling, so you might just want to get the important bits first and then get the rest later on.

What fans should I use with the GTX? I really don't want my office to sound like a Rocket. Do they make a good quiet fan for that rad?

And how would one set up series vs parallel with GPU? I understand series vs parallel with a pump...but never heard of this with gpu.

Is this what you mean by series vs parallel? Sorry for the crappy deal...

If you want silence, your only option is Gentle Typhoons

You will need AP15s (1850 RPM) or faster too.



Might be an idea to check this thread out, these fans are going out of production and you probably wont find them in a shop but they are very good:

If you want slower fans, you'll probably want a different radiator.

Do I need push pull or will 4 suffice?

I'd start with 4 if you're getting the AP15s, if you're ordering from the thread, that's probably your last chance to get your hands on them, so I'd get 8 (I'm in fact going to buy 18 personally ^-^) because you probably wont get a deal like that again.

The 35x i think can handle it. It's got the greatest head pressure out of all the pumps, so the 35x should be able to handle all of the restriction given by all of those blocks. Don't get AP-15's if you can get your hands on the 2150 RPM GT's. Otherwise, get some AP-15s.

Not the only option for silence though: NoiseBlockers aren't very loud and fairly effective, but I'd still go with either the 2150s or the ap-15's.

well you dont need alot of cooling area for it to cool it off. I was @ 4.2 ghz ht on on 920 or 930 and 480 @850core sli, was cooled buy r4fans over a slim 360 rad, was summer and hot so it did a great job.
Now to your rig, 240 thick rad could do it. (360 slim area was 100sq inches, feser thick 240 was 90sq inches.) now i got 480 thick, same temps mite be 2-3 lower but now total diffent rig ,
Also Just get cpu block and gpus block,the chipsets u wont need or the ram coolers My old ddr2 ram needed it @ 2.1 volts, But ddr3 most are 1.65 or 1.50 so runs cool. My 1600mhz ram in linx still are hot but no where near ddr2.
Get 1/2 barbs over 7/16 tubes
Gt 1850 fans are great, a little loud but for the air presser cant pass it.
test loop outside of pc for a few hours longer the better for leaks.
Disstilled water + killcoil or pt nuke for fluid

Lol no, a 240 rad will NOT cool 2 gpus, a cpu, plus a chipset efficiently. Not even close.

Okay so here's what I've got so far.

Pump: 35X (I ordered two just in case, if I don't need it I'll sell it)

Radiators: GTX Extreme 360 and GTX Extreme 120 (I will mod the top of my case to fit the 360 which was a great suggestion)

Tubing: I got black and clear Tygon 3/8ID 1/2OD I got 10ft of both

CPU Block: I got the Swiftech Apogee XT Rev 2 (Good choice?)

Ram Block: Koolance RAM-33 (Sorry I ordered it before this thread)

GPU Blocks: Koolance HD 5870 Ref Full Block with EK RAM Back Plates

Reservoir: Alphacool Cape Corp Bullseye Pro (I'll mod it so you can see it from the outside of the case)

Fans: GT-15 (I was too impatient to wait 10 weeks for the thread)

Fittings: Bitspower compression (I haven't ordered these yet because I want to map everything out first because they are D@mn expensive!)

Do I need anything else?
Will this suffice?

Thanks again for all your help guys.
