small gtx 480 loop - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Hi,
I have just recently completed my water cooling loop on my sig rig. i bought a 240 rad for my CPU and a 240 for my 480 push-pull on the gpu rad and just pull on the CPU rad (its in the roof of my 600t b4 you ask).

This keeps my gpu around 44-48c while on bad company and a little higher in shogun 2 . Cpu never exceeds 60c @24/7 4.0Ghz 1.28v.

On GPU blocks i did a huge ammount of research before getting my blocks, i suggest you do too as the temperature differences are noticeable.

Obviously i'm going to reccommend my block but i suggest you research don't take my word for it - but i will highly reccommend the razor 480 from XSPC its a couple of degrees cooler than most of the competition. The only downside is the lack of a backplate. considering the heat monster that a 480 is i would go for a 240 rad if you plan on overclocking (of course you are your a member of OCN)

Good luck with the build and remember leak test leak test and leaktest again .

Regards

wow, a ton of info.
thanks to all that replied.

i cant find the XSPC block that you mentioned.

also, would i be able to get away with not using a reservior, and strictly having a pump-card-rad setup?

the fat XSPC 120 rad was actually the one i was looking at, so nice to see it recommended.
this is the block i was considering, any opinions?
