800D - First WC build - Advice?

post #1 of 76
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm just looking for advice on my parts list.

Here's my rig,
i7 950 @ 3.5
Asus rampage iii extreme
3gb corsair @ 1600
Crucial 64gb ssd + 1tb caviar black
8800 Ultra

Problem is cooling, I can't overclock further due to temps going to high.
So... * long winded I know *

New set up:
Corsair 800D
XSPC RX360 at the top and modding the bottom to fit RX240.
Single loop, alphacool mcp655 pump.

Adding one hydro copper 2 gtx580.

Will be using shrouded 1850 scythe gentle typhoon fans

Need help with CPU block to choose.

Please feel free to ask questions, add comments and recommend.

On my phone atm so the post may not be as clear as if I had done it from pc.

I'm running my Sig rig on a single 360 radiator with three ap-14's pushing. Temps were never over 55c in the winter. That's with my 970 at 4GHz and 580 at stock.

It can, and easily. I started out with a 360... was too scared to put a 480 in the top. It was so easy, in hindsight I should have started with a 480 in the top. I've got a rx480 there now.

It is my understanding that a 480 would require modding.

Same modding as putting a 240 in the bottom. Might as well do it right is my motto.

If you plan to go crazy with water cooling, and are not afriad of modding, then definitely go with the mod for a 480 in the top and a 240 in the bottom.. It's not necessary, but you won't regret it if done correctly.

I'm not modding and will end up with a 360 in the top, a 120 in the back, and a 120 in the bottom.
