ATI Radeon HD 5770 Help - Page 3

Hi Overtyser67,

The Corsair brand CPU liquid coolers are, as I understand it, really only intended to be used as CPU coolers and CPU coolers only. They don't have anywhere near enough overhead cooling capacity to deal with GPUs added to the loop. So.. I assume you are planning on running a separate loop with another pump and radiator for your GPUs?

Honestly... the performance gain of liquid cooling is rarely worth it. It's for extravagant builds that don't need to worry about performance/$. Unless you are already running the BEST hardware, it doesn't make sense to liquid cool IMO. The same money spent on higher end hardware will almost always return better performance.

Eric

yeah i was planning on running a separate loop with another pump and radiator, i'd like to keep temps down whatever way possible so i can push my computer a bit more then what it is now, if i update the graphics card and cool them properly, along with the liquid cooling to the CPU, i should be able to overclock both the GPU and the CPU, i guess it's not a bad computer in all actuality, just looking to make it better yet by adding some liquid cooling and more case fans to get the heat out of the case.

I run a Scythe Setsugen 2 Air cooler on my XFX 5770. It cost me $40 and nearly silent in my rig with 3x 200mm fans. If you plan on ever going Crossfire make sure your cards have 2 crossfire tabs. On cards with single crossfire tabs, the heat pipes will cover the Tab.

Im currently OC'd to 925/1325 and idle at 42C, never get above 67C

Really the only reason i bought it was because of the noise of the XFX brick-style cooler at increased speeds. this thing runs at full speed and i dont hear it!

If you dont wanna spend more than the prince of another card for a water loop, i would suggest the Setsugen 2!!
