Questions about My System and what setup to use.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok, So I have been looking at Water Cooling my system for a while now, and after my recent upgrades to the system I have decided I don't like the temps i'm getting on Air.

I'm Currently using an I7-990x on a G1.Sniper MB cooled with a Corsair H70. The temps have never been bad, but after adding 2 more GTX 580 to my system the Overall temps of those 3 cards and the Ambient temp in my case have gone up to the point where i feel its time to switch to WC.

I have a Azza Hurrican 2000 Case which only supports a 360 Rad internaly, so i guess i'm wondering What kind of set up i should use for 3 GPU and the CPU. Should i look to have an external Rad setup? or would one 360 Rad be enough?

I was looking at:
Swiftech MCR320 QP Triple 120mm Radiator
Phobya Balancer 250 Reservoir
EK Supreme HF Universal CPU Liquid Cooling Block
Swiftech MCP655
EVGA Hydro Copper 2 Waterblock x3

My question though, is with 3 GPU should i get a second Rad and set up an external Setup with a External 3 x 360 Radiator / Liquid Cooling Housing Enclosure? And if i did that i would think i need a second pump, possible use a Bitspower Dual D5 Mod Top Extreme with 2 Swiftech MCP655?

Money isn't an issue for this system, as you can see by the i7-990x instead of going i7-2600k.

I'm am new to all this and would love to hear from the experts.

Go with external rad and internal rad, if the 580's are cooled in line with each other, the first card is going to be the coolest and the third card will have a higher temp because the water has already passed through 2 cards and possibly a cpu. it all depends on how you route your lines.

Since you mentioned money isn't an issue, my suggestion is get a bigger case. Like a Caselabs T10 or Mountain Mods Ascension/Extended Ascension. But if you've decided to keep your current case, you have no choice but going the external route for your rads w/c w/ your setup will look tacky.
