Was just curious what your guys thoughts for a look would be for a loop. Going to start with just WCing the CPU till I grab either another gtx 480 or 2x 580s.
Was thinking either two 360 rads or a 360/240, GPUs on a loop with 360, cpu on loop with 240 but would the 240 be enough for the CPU and potentially NB/SB later?

Saw Khalam's setup and seems like mine would be pretty much the same.

Thanks for the input guys, hope to join you in the club soon!


i have the RX360 and the RX120 in my HAF932 ........ but u can do so much more with this case (xigmatek elysium) if i were u i would buy the XSPC RX240 kit and get a 3x140 rad ...not the skinniest one u can find.... get the thickest one for the top this case can handle it u can stick the 240 in the bottom and the 3x140 in the top and load up the front with 140s or 120s u would get the largest amount of air flowing through the case to cool the big rads and give u great temps

rx360 is thicker thermochill 120x3 (360) u get more surface area with the 420 (3x140) giving u better head room and yes u can push pull the reason y i say 420 is better 140mm fans move more air and r quite

Are you telling me to put a 420 instead of 360 on the roof? I was thinking a 360 because I have more choice on the fans ..
post #345 of 1907
yes I am most of the fans for a 360 will be in push pull configuration and most of your 120 mm fans will only do 56 cfm quietly a budget 140 can do 50 cfm and it covers more area remember water cooling is about heat you need to dissipate heat take a 120 millimeter fan and put it up against a 140 millimeter fan you see the difference think about the 120 millimeter radiator vs 140 rad hands down 140 will crush any 360 fan combination out there

So the difference between rad360 rad420 against is so substantial that I choose the biggest? I've seen in most of the configurations of the houses that have a 360 because it is perhaps more difficult to mount a 420 ..
Tell me if I'm wrong, I would be sure to order my first liquid cooling system ..
Thanks!!
post #347 of 1907
if u r going to get the xigmatek elysium case the answer is yes because u can fit a triple140mm rad i the top ........................ if u r not going to get the xigmatek elysium than just stick wit the 360 r u going to get the xspc kit if so like i said be for get the RX not the RS my kit is the RX360 kit and the RX120 bought separately to help with the heat when i oc on the hi side but u r going to buy this case rite xigmatek elysium

yes.. i will buy elysium...
for the radiator i will see because the 360 are compatible with most case, the 420 isnt... :/
For the choise radiator u thinks themochill is better than rx360?
post #349 of 1907
Just a couple of pics of my progress with this case. I need to get shots of the front and the back side panel yet, but at least this gives you an idea of what the most important part looks like.... biggrin.gif

Hope that you like it.
